Chief executive Tim Cook said the iPhone maker’s 'next big step' will be driven by generative AI and large language models.

Apple on Monday said it has partnered with OpenAI to integrate ChatGPT into its devices, as chief executive Tim Cook set out the iPhone maker’s “next big step” driven by generative artificial intelligence and large language models. Cook and his team outlined upgrades to the company’s software ecosystem coming this year at Apple’s annual developer conference on Monday, aiming to leverage the power of AI to provide a smarter Siri voice assistant and more personalised features on its devices to enhance productivity and tap into more advanced computer intelligence. This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference has been watched especially closely as investors waited to see how Cook will position the company to take advantage of generative AI, amid concerns it is falling behind its Big Tech competitors.

Billionaire Elon Musk said he would ban Apple devices from his companies if OpenAI’s software is integrated into the products at the operating system level.

In a series of posts on his social media platform X, Musk shared concerns about whether Apple and OpenAI will protect users’ information. He called the software integration between the two companies “an unacceptable security violation,” and said Apple has “no clue what’s actually going on.” “It’s patently absurd that Apple isn’t smart enough to make their own AI, yet is somehow capable of ensuring that OpenAI will protect your security & privacy!” Musk wrote after the event. The remarks followed a presentation Monday by Apple, when it said that customers would have access to OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot through the Siri digital assistant. Apple plans to roll out the capabilities as part of a suite of new AI features later this year. Musk co-founded OpenAI but had a falling out with the San Francisco-based startup. Source: HolgerZ
