I haven’t read anything but the headlines about this new Apple Intelligence. Something something ChatGPT built into the operating system accessible via Siri. In theory that sounds pretty amazing. Has there been anything about it improving Siri’s voice recognition? Or will shoddy input continue to be the problem?

I haven't delved into the subject myself at all yet, but Ars has an intro to the basics:


And how they're implementing them into the on-device functionality:

As well as not-very-concrete assurances of privacy and security:

I'm a little worried, personally, that I'll now have a personal assistant that does what Siri was initially promised to do, except blathering complete bullshit at me in between actual info, making it useless and/or dangerous.

I'm curious how Apple can jump on the bandwagon while radically vetting results to avoid the dystopian sinkhole/hellhole that is any non-expert usage of ChatGPT.

(I use it to teach myself Python, but that comes with the analysis and reality-testing that reveals the bullshit it offers up occasionally in between all the Truly Useful.)
