Back in 2011, Apple added its Siri voice assistant to any iPhone running iOS 5 and above, and since then, Siri has made its way into Apple’s entire range of products.
Technically speaking, the original developers of Siri should get credit here — many people still don’t know that it was actually a third-party iOS app just months before Apple acquired it, which developed the software. was stalling any plans to bring in a competing operating system. Like Android and Blackberry.
In response, we saw a veritable rebellion from the world’s biggest tech companies to try and compete. Microsoft introduced Cortana in 2013, Amazon Alexa in 2014, Google with the Google Assistant in 2016, and more recently we’ve seen newcomers like Bixby and Baidu pop up.
As these applications counter this, however, a new player has entered the fray with an entirely different skill set that may completely disrupt the voice assistant space; chatgpt.
spot the difference
So let’s first sort out the differences. ChatGPT is an incredibly powerful chatbot, with a human-like vocabulary, infused with near-unfettered access to information. Siri and other voice assistants, alternatively, are programmed to be more binary with set requests and responses that they can understand.
If you ask ChatGPT for help with writing or problem-solving, or something more unique use cases, you will be amazed and delighted by its capabilities. Powered by the same technology, Bing can also understand more challenging questions, even if you ask it about love.
ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, a company that – as its name suggests – allows its technology to be implemented by other organizations, rather than the closed-source proprietary technology found in Siri. This means app developers can easily integrate ChatGPT into all kinds of interesting and exciting apps.
However, Siri will not be able to do this. It’s great for task assistance, especially when augmented by shortcuts, and for quickly navigating hands-free functions on your phone.
However, it’s frustratingly limited in scope beyond that and struggles to deal with even more complex requests than Alexa, despite Apple’s efforts to enhance it over the years. Plus, I still have a bone to pick with how crappy its voice recognition can be.
Get with the program, Apple
Microsoft is now leading the innovation race with Bing, despite some early teething issues, But Google is hot on its tail, Now, with both of these making strides in the search engine space, it’s only a matter of time before eyes turn to voice assistants.
Sir, I Is Get used to search, after all — but despite many years of iteration, search remains one of its most frustrating, clunky features.
Keen Users Are Already Creating Ways Embed ChatGPT’s more advanced conversational processing in Siri, It’s not perfect, and there are some natural, much-needed security and privacy concerns on the part of ChatGPT, but this eagerness to enhance Siri’s capabilities shows Apple’s ability to capitalize here.
So, why is Apple dragging its feet?
playing the long game
To me, there’s only one reason why a giant like Apple won’t be up to speed on recapturing the voice assistant market. Like the great tactician Cruella de Vil, Apple may be biding its time before striking out to recapture the voice assistant market.
Apple has a Multiple AI acquisitions We haven’t seen quite the amount in recent years, and despite a few minor rumors that may indicate some is to come, the tech giant has been characteristically reserved since the big Bing and Bard explosion.
I have to say that Apple was always planning on releasing something, but I find it hard to believe that ChatGPT and Bing didn’t do it somewhat blind. after all Google seemed a bit strained to get the Bard up and running fast In reply. As a result, Apple was faced with two options; Run to join the race, or wait and watch how the chips fall. Looks like it chose the latter.
Now, while Apple wouldn’t stand to lose much by biding its time, it could win big if it does with Siri capable of far more than anything else on the market — and if we look at the wider Apple ecosystem. And progressing elsewhere in the tech space, it looks like the company is hoping to start with a bang.
Take the smart home space, for example. This year Mater, the software standard driving smart home interoperability, will start to really make an impact in people’s homes. If Siri can leapfrog Alexa and Google Assistant, a more interactive and customizable Siri could propel Apple Home forward. think disney smart homeBut without the murderous vibes.
We’re just a few months away from WWDC, Apple’s developer conference in California, which is an event where the company usually shows off its latest software updates (and also launches the odd piece of hardware). By the time this rolls around, the dust will have somewhat settled on Google and Microsoft’s AI. Unless Amazon steps in with a major Alexa overhaul of its own, this might be the perfect opportunity for Apple to sweep in and steal the limelight — potentially, even, more thoroughly. With intelligent AI.
Time will tell – but one thing is certain: slow and steady can win the race, but not when you never leave the starting line.
