Apple is said to be testing the more capable Siri on Apple TVs running tvOS 16.4 beta, which has been trained to generate jokes only.
With the release of the iPhone 4S in 2011, Apple introduced Siri, a personal virtual assistant. Since then, Apple has been incorporating and adding new features and capabilities to Siri, and it is now available on a variety of Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and even the Apple Watch.
When it comes to personal AI, particularly generative AI, OpenAI's ChatGPT far outperforms the competition. This has caused brands such as Apple and even Google to rethink their AI services, and according to 9to5Mac, Apple appears to be working on adding natural language generation capability to Siri.
Natural language generation AI services can generate human-like content. Apple is said to be testing the more capable Siri on Apple TVs running tvOS 16.4 beta, which is trained to generate jokes only. Siri with natural language generation could be available on devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Macs in the coming days.
Again, depending on the device, Apple may limit Siri's capabilities in order to provide a seamless experience.
Unlike ChatGPT or GPT-4, which can generate textual content, Apple's improved Siri will provide improved speech output that is said to sound more "human" than ever before. It's also possible that Apple will limit this capability to Siri, and it won't be as powerful as OpenAI's GPT-4. There has been no update from Apple regarding the rollout of this feature as of yet. Apple, on the other hand, is expected to show it off at its upcoming WWDC 2023 developers conference.
