  • Apple Intelligence inches closer to Apple's 1987 Knowledge Navigator

    seven feet: really good story and background. Thank you.
    And now we come to the Chatbot agent itself, the guy with the bowtie. 

    I think in some ways Siri is an improvement.

    For goodness sake, just because  he instantly became persona non grata for some people over the twitter issue, there is no denying that for all his many flaws Musk is making a tremendous difference to the world.

  • iPad finally has a Calculator app - Here's everything it can do

    Can you write a second order polynomial and have it give you the roots using the quadratic equation?
    All will be revealed in the fullness of time, grasshopper.

  • Apple Intelligence & Private Cloud Compute are Apple's answer to generative AI

    A rather lame, half-baked, underwhelming attempt at AI. 

    A $3000B company with thousands and thousands of developers and a history of spectacular innovations can’t come up with its own AI?
    I think that is a bit unfair. Apple has gone down a different path to the other server centric AI models. And, I would point out, what Apple has been calling ML for five years is a lot of what people now call AI. This is what I assume is the plan from what I can glean for the key or at technical websites (well, Ars).

    Apple Intelligence = on device ML and local LLM (smart Siri) + private, personal encrypted LLM on Apple servers ( no one else has done that bit)

    ChatGPT integration = if Apple Intelligence can’t help, then go outside the privacy wall to ChatGPT (while still limiting private info) or any other LLM that sets up a future deal with Apple.  And you must give permission for smart Siri to do so when it has to.

    All in all a deep, integrated system where on device is first priority and privacy considered at all steps.  And that private LLM framework is pretty big.  This is a very different path to other offerings while leveraging existing LLM frameworks. Whether it works (hi Siri!) we have yet to see.

    US English only. It will probably be six years until available in my native language. Still waiting for numerous other Apple features that are only available for major languages. Bummer.
    No doubt even longer for Australian.
