On this week's episode of the AppleInsider Podcast, your hosts discuss the possibility that Siri could get some help from GPT-like technology, Spotify's eventual HiFi tier, and talk about Samsung's moon photo controversy.

Your hosts discuss how the revolution of AI chatbots and large language models like ChatGPT could influence Apple. It might lead to a better Siri, but for now it isn't clear how Apple will implement the technology in the long run.

Whereas there was much more detail from Spotify this week, with the music streaming service having a lot of news this week on the heels of Apple Music Classical's launch. Spotify's long-awaited HiFi tier is promised to arrive eventually, but in the meantime, there's the service's new TikTok-like format for people to grasp.



Also this week, Samsung got caught up -- and maybe caught out -- in a computational photography debate due to how it processes images of the moon. While the end result is indeed a fabrication, it could also be the future of taking photos on a smartphone.

    AI hype is troublesome. I use ChatGPT a lot, not for writing text but for research. I still have to check and double check everything. It has become very apparent that ChatGPT doesn't do the math on the fly but, along with the text, reiterates math from the same articles used as the source; if the math is wrong there, it happily regurgitates it. Only when further questioned on the incorrect math will it apologize and try again. I just had it give me three different answers to the same question. Only on the third try was the answer correct.

    I am hoping ChatGPT4 will fix this.
