I’ve been joking for a while that we’re going to see a ChatGPT Phone soon, but I didn’t expect something so similar soon… I haven’t watched the whole demo yet, but it sounds intriguing if they can pull off a natural language OS…
ETA: Sounds like they have a 7B LLM onboard the device for speed?
I bet Google hates this with a passion because of ad revenue. They made $224.47 billion USD in 2022 just on ads. These devices give us access to all the internet has to offer with ZERO ads shown. If this becomes the norm Google will have to figure out a different way to make it’s bread and butter.
I am skeptical about carrying another object when I have my iPhone in my pocket. I thinksomething like a bodycam and microphone that communicates through the AI on my iPhone, would make sense. I am no more likely to carry a separate AI device along with my iPhone then I am to carry an MP3 player or a camera or a PDA or a book, etc. etc.
I definitely want to try it out. LAMs seem incredible as a concept but hard to say how useful it is until you play with it (e.g., when planning a travel itenerary, can it do price comparisons or just pick the first viable option given the instructions?).
Also, has anyone figured out whether this device can operate on Wi-Fi only or if it requires a SIM card?
I just finished watching the video, and now I want one. I am concerned about my data. Normally, when devices are sold at low costs, they sell your information. I need to do more research on that, but other than that, it looks great.
Well, the ones serving the LLMs will be like the new Google with all the “ad space…” Although more and more signs are pointing toward a post-capitalism world. Sounds crazy to say it, but things are accelerating quickly…
We’re definitely heading towards our own personal assistants that can accomplish this. I do believe this is where GPTs are heading.
The feature you’re describing is possible, technically already using GPTs. One could also build Assistants with a router to do this.
The issue is the hardware, as you’ve mentioned. Having an additional separate device
Do I want a separate device to run an LLM? No. If I had one I would mount it at home and communicate with it over the Internet. I would love to do all of these things with a battle tested network of devices like my watch, ans my phone
I can see some merit here. Kind of like how PCs can play video games yet much cheaper, specialized hardware comes out and makes things like Xbox, PlayStation.
But a phone can be considered a portable interface and latency times are typically very low. Why would you prefer to potentially have a second device for a portable LLM? Most of the necessities would overlap and then how would this synchronize with any other AI you have running?
I am already rooted in the idea that households will be running their own localized AI, though, and this specialized AI hardware will be as common as a dishwasher.
