iOS gets ChatGPT app, android’s version underway

iOS devices now have an app for ChatGPT which will synchronise chat history with the web, gives access to voice input and is supported by OpenAI’s open-source speech recognition model whisper.

The initiative is supported on Apple devices; iPhone and iPad.

According to OpenAI, the app will be made available in the US and subsequently will be accessible in other countries “in the coming weeks”.

The American company also hinted that the android version will soon be available as well.

Concerns raised on AI’s implication to mankind

ChatGPT continues to gain global popularity despite several unanswered questions on the implications Artificial Intelligence could have on mankind.

Microsoft-backed OpenAI unveiled the fourth iteration of its GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) AI program, which thrilled users with its gamut of applications it will offer.

Shortly after the announcement, in March, AI experts, industry executives including Elon Musk in a letter called for at least a 6 months pause in developing systems more powerful than OpenAI’s newly launched GPT-4.

“AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity, as shown by extensive research and acknowledged by top AI labs”, an excerpt from the letter reads.

Over $14 million has been generated by the top 10 earning applications that promote the usage of ChatGPT or OpenAI technologies, according to a recent survey of the ecosystem of AI apps from analytics company data.ai.
