Apple is reportedly planning to join the AI race after ChatGPT has taken the world by storm.

Voice assistants are “dumb as a rock,” said Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella in an interview with The Financial Times.
OpenAI has now unveiled its next-generation AI engine, GPT-4, which powers ChatGPT and accepts image and text inputs.
“We’ve created GPT-4, the latest milestone in OpenAI’s effort in scaling up deep learning,” the company said in a blogpost.
Last month, Google unveiled its new AI service ‘Bard’ to compete against OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which is opened up to “trusted testers” before the company makes it “more widely available to the public”.
In the future, the technologies of chatbots and voice assistants will converge, according to experts.
Recently, the startup OpenAI said it is beginning to release a powerful artificial intelligence model known as GPT-4, setting the stage for human-like technology to proliferate and more competition between its backer Microsoft Corp and Alphabet Inc’s Google.
OpenAI, which created the chatbot sensation ChatGPT, said in a blog post that its latest technology is “multimodal,” meaning images, as well as text prompts, can spur it to generate content. The text-input feature will be available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers and to software developers, with a waitlist, while the image-input ability remains a preview of its research.
