Spanning AI threat Voice Assistant? Former Apple engineer: Siri can't be as strong as ChatGPT

According to reports, John Burkey, a former Apple engineer, said that Siri, Apple's voice assistant, could not be as powerful as ChatGPT, a chat robot owned by OpenAI.

John said that Siri can answer simple questions or instructions such as weather and playing songs by extracting content from the database, but the number of requests that can be understood is limited, and new words must be added to the database in order to enrich the content.

Integrating more advanced ChatGPT-like features, such as search, could take a year or so, he says, and even updating Siri's basic features could take weeks because its code is outdated and complex.

According to John, the popularity of the AI chat robot ChatGPT, which runs on the language model GPT-4, is threatening the voice assistant technology.

Microsoft CEO Satyanadella, who completed a $10 billion investment in OpenAI this year, said this month that Apple's Siri and voice assistants such as Amazon's Alexa were "as stupid as a stone".

Adam Cheyer, co-founder of Siri, agrees. Adam says ChatGPT can also write articles and code, compared with voice assistants.

Siri users even have a similar view. On social platforms, questions such as "Why is Siri so stupid" and "is Siri getting stupider year after year" began to appear.

But Siri is not the only voice assistant in trouble. Amazon Alexa lost more than $3 billion in operations last year and is now on the brink of life and death.

A former Amazon employee said, "Alexa is a big failure of imagination and a waste of good opportunities."

It is reported that Google also found it difficult to generate significant revenue from its voice assistant, but both Amazon and Google said they would continue to build their voice assistant function.
