Apple is reportedly experimenting with language
Apple is reportedly experimenting with language-generating AI, according to a new report from TechCrunch. The company is said to be using its Siri virtual assistant to test the technology, which is designed to create new sentences by piecemeal from a set of pre-determined words and phrases.
If successful, the system could be used to improve the quality of Siri’s responses, or even create new dialogue for the assistant altogether. The report says that the technology is still in its early stages, and it’s not yet clear how far along Apple is in its development.
This is not the first time that Apple has been rumored to be working on artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The company has been said to be working on a “predictive keyboard” that would use AI to predict the next word a user is going to type. Apple has also been rumored to be working on a “brain-computer interface” that would allow users to control their devices with their thoughts.
However, Siri remains one of the most visible examples of AI in use by Apple. The virtual assistant has come under fire in recent years for its sometimes inaccurate responses to user questions. This has led some to speculate that Apple is working on a replacement for Siri.
It is not clear if the language-generating AI technology being developed by Apple is intended to replace Siri, or if it is simply a way to improve the quality of the assistant’s responses. Either way, it is clear that Apple is interested in using AI to improve its products and services.
