Technology giants are uniting for the iPhone of artificial intelligence!
Technology giants are coming together. Leading companies of the artificial intelligence era are joining forces for the iPhone of artificial intelligence. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman wants to develop OpenAI’s first consumer device. To achieve this goal, he approached LoveFrom, the design firm of Apple’s former chief design officer Jony Ive. The two companies brainstormed in Ive’s San Francisco studio. Afterwards, they evaluated the design of the product together.
Ive and Altman will design a device that offers a more natural and intuitive user experience for interacting with artificial intelligence. The duo is inspired by the interaction of the touchscreen technology in the original iPhone with the mobile internet. There is also another initiative that will provide financial support to these two companies. Softbank Group, which includes Arm, which provides chip support for Apple devices, will provide financial support.
Ive played a pivotal role in designing the first iPhone. Additionally, many devices bear Ive’s signature. Apple has an addictive nature to its technology. Apple’s former designer argued that precautions should be taken to prevent this situation from reaching dangerous levels. He also drew attention to the moral dimension of the process. With this project with OpenAI, Ive will design an interactive computing device that is less dependent on screens.
This collaboration is not the first partnership between OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Apple employees. The company previously invested in Humane, a hardware and software company co-founded by former Apple employees. He gained experience with this investment. Humane produces a screenless wearable artificial intelligence device to replace smartphones. Now OpenAI will design the iPhone of artificial intelligence together with LoveFrom.
