OpenAI announced the upcoming launch of an Android version of their AI chatbot, ChatGPT, after its successful release on iOS. The company provided a preorder page on the Google Play Store for users to register for installation once the app is ready.
OpenAI has been working on enhancing the safety and transparency of its AI tools, including content watermarking, in response to concerns about misinformation. The Android app will have improved security measures and conversation history synchronization across devices, similar to the iOS version.
OpenAI, Google, Microsoft, and Apple
This move puts OpenAI in more intense competition with other AI tools such as Microsoft’s Bing Chat, and Google Bard. In the second week of July 2023, Google expanded its operations throughout Europe after addressing privacy concerns. While Microsoft and Meta entered into a deal aimed at AI development.
According to a recent Bloomberg report, Apple is actively developing an in-house AI model to compete with platforms like ChatGPT. Their strategy involves creating large-scale language models and an internal chatbot.
However, Apple is still uncertain about the best approach to release this project to users. The company’s language model is called Ajax, while their in-house chatbot service is referred to as Apple GPT, both of which demonstrate Apple’s impressive engineering capabilities.
Safety and Transparency in AI
Beyond showing concerns for the safety use of AI, OpenAI, Whitehouse, Meta, Google, and other AI labs have agreed to collaborate towards safe and responsive use of AI.
OpenAI is an artificial intelligence research lab and technology company that aims to develop and promote friendly AI that benefits all of humanity. It was founded in December 2015 by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, John Schulman, and Wojciech Zaremba.
The organization’s primary focus is on artificial general intelligence (AGI), which refers to highly autonomous systems that outperform humans in most economically valuable work.
OpenAI conducts cutting-edge research in various fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and it is well known for its advancements in natural language processing and generation.
