While AI has been really increasing in popularity, companies have barely implemented it in smartphones yet. We have seen some devices with built-in AI and LLM functions but they haven’t been that popular. However, according to reports, Apple may incorporate AI features in the next iOS.
iPhone and Generative AI
According to MacRumors, Apple intends to construct several hundred AI servers this year and many more the next year. Apple reportedly plans to integrate generative AI into its hardware by the end of 2024. The servers will combine “edge AI,” which processes data on-device, with cloud-based AI.
The Information previously revealed that the business is spending millions of dollars per day on training its large-language models. Apple will make the language models available for a wider range of iPhone users for these AI capabilities. However, the majority of this effort will be directed toward AppleCare subscribers.
The AI tool developed by Apple is based on the company’s extensive “Ajax” language paradigm. Google JAX, which is intended to speed up machine learning research, serves as the foundation for the framework. This like other chatbots like Bard, ChatGPT, and Bing AI, can summarise the text and respond to queries based on the facts.
Pu points out that Apple has been moving slowly in order to figure out how to apply generative AI in a way that is consistent with its values about user privacy and security. During a call with investors earlier in the year, CEO Tim Cook acknowledged both the promise and the issues of generative AI.
