OpenAI has announced that its AI-powered chatbot, ChatGPT, can be downloaded on iPhones. The company hopes to greatly expand the reach of its chatbot, even as concerns grow about the impact of the rapid expansion of AI tools.
- The app begins rolling out in the US before expanding to other countries in the coming weeks, according to OpenAI.
- The company said that an Android version of ChatGPT will be available soon, but it did not specify an exact launch date.
- The app is free and will sync history between users’ devices, allowing web search data to be transferred between iPhones and desktop computers.
- The iOS app will feature voice input using Whisper, OpenAI’s open source voice recognition platform.
- The Apple App Store previously housed a large number of ChatGPT alternatives, fakes, and clones that tricked users into associating them with malware.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT is just one of many AI-powered chatbots in a market full of competing software from companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon. Microsoft’s Bing AI was available in the App Store before ChatGPT launched on iOS, with an older version arriving in October 2022. The race for chatbots sparked public interest and concern from lawmakers, who recently hosted a hearing on AI that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman attended. During a nearly three-hour discussion about potential AI risks and regulatory paths, Altman proposed creating a new federal agency with the power to issue and revoke licenses for AI.
According to a February study by UBS, ChatGPT is the fastest growing consumer application. “In 20 years of monitoring the Internet space, we don’t recall a faster growth of a consumer Internet application,” a UBS analyst noted in the study.
A large number
90 billion dollars (83 billion euros). This is how much UBS forecasts for the artificial intelligence devices and services market by 2025.
In the United States, several school districts across the country have banned ChatGPT over concerns that it promotes cheating on homework, but public schools in New York City — the largest school district in the country — reversed their decision Thursday. New York City Public Schools counselor David Banks said of the policy shift, “While the initial warning was justified, it has turned into a careful exploration and examination of the power and dangers of this new technology.
