OpenAI will soon be competing with voice assistants like Siri and Alexa.

Here’s why:

OpenAI just submitted a trademark application for the development of ‘digital voice assistants’ and a ‘voice engine,’ for their upcoming secret product.

The trademark application for the voice engine covers speech recognition, generating voice and audio outputs, and advanced language processing.

OpenAI has also filed trademark applications for its future models, including GPT-6 and GPT-7, in October.

Apple has unveiled MM1, a family of multimodal models capable of handling images and text.

With 30 billion parameters, MM1 combines visual and test cues for enhanced understanding and generation. 

ChatGPT 3.5 (free version) for comparison has 20B parameters.

With its multimodal understanding capabilities, MM1 could significantly enhance Siri (understanding questions based on images), iMessage (interpreting shared images and text), and other Apple products.

And it may debut on the iPhone and Mac this summer.


Stability AI’s founder and CEO have resigned to pursue decentralized AI.

In a series of posts on X, Mostaque said that one can’t beat “centralized AI” with more “centralized AI,” referring to the ownership structure of top AI startups such as OpenAI and Anthropic.

Bold move, Mostaque, bold move.

While firms like Stability AI and Anthropic seek profitable business models, others, like Mostaque, appear motivated by the goal of democratizing AI access and development.

The company has appointed Chief Operating Officer Shan Shan Wong and Chief Technology Officer Christian Laforte as interim co-CEOs.


Character AI just launched a new feature called Character Voice that lets you chat with characters in their own voice, because who wouldn't want to hear Darth Vader discuss the weather or Sherlock Holmes analyzes the latest gossip?

And it’s available to all users for free.

What it does:

  • Users can find pre-made voices or create their own in the voice library. They can use these voices for their characters or in one-on-one chats.

  • You can create your own voice with just 10 seconds of clear source audio.

  • Voices can be shared, searched, and set as default by users.
