New Chatbot “Apple GPT” in the Works

Apple is actively working on artificial intelligence (AI) tools to challenge the likes of OpenAI and Google. The tech giant has reportedly created a chatbot internally called “Apple GPT” and is planning to make a significant AI-related announcement next year.

Apple’s Framework “Ajax” Creates Large Language Models

Apple has developed its own framework called “Ajax” to build large language models, similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard. Ajax runs on Google Cloud and utilizes Google JAX, the machine learning framework. It serves as the foundation for Apple’s internal ChatGPT-style tool.

Chatbot Accessible to More Apple Employees

Initially paused due to security concerns, Apple’s chatbot is now available to more employees for product prototyping purposes. However, access requires special approval and any output from the chatbot cannot be used for customer-facing features.

Apple Seeking Generative AI Talent

Apple has been actively hiring talent with expertise in large language models and generative AI, as highlighted in recent job postings. The company is ramping up its efforts to meet consumer demand for AI tools in tasks like drafting essays and images.

Addressing Privacy Concerns

Apple is reportedly focused on addressing potential privacy concerns associated with AI. CEO Tim Cook has expressed the company’s commitment to adding AI to its offerings on a “thoughtful basis.”

Stay tuned for more updates on Apple’s AI developments in the coming months.
