In the thrilling, fast-paced world of tech, Apple appears to be taking a giant leap towards AI-powered systems, with rumors surfacing about their very own AI chatbot, tentatively being called "Apple GPT". This inside scoop comes courtesy of a Bloomberg report, with the caveat that Apple is yet to reveal solid plans about releasing the technology to the public.

The AI chatbot is reportedly built on a proprietary large language model (LLM) framework called "Ajax", running on Google Cloud and powered by Google JAX - a highly efficient tool designed to accelerate machine learning research. Ajax, according to Bloomberg, has been developed as a one-stop solution to unify machine learning development.

Despite Apple's reputation as a forerunner in the tech landscape, it has been notably silent in the race to release generative AI products. In stark contrast, tech behemoths like Meta, Microsoft, and Google have already debuted their own AI products for businesses and public use. Interestingly, while Apple has restricted its employees from using ChatGPT, it appears that the Ajax-powered chatbot is being tested internally.

Artificial intelligence is not a new territory for Apple. The tech titan has been seamlessly integrating AI into its software for many years. Siri, the voice assistant, is Apple's most well-known AI system, setting the trend for other tech companies. However, critics suggest that Siri has quite a journey ahead in terms of achieving its full potential.

To bolster their AI prowess, Apple welcomed John Giannandrea, formerly the AI and search head at Google, on board in 2018. Alongside Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, Giannandrea has been spearheading Apple's AI endeavor.

During an interaction on Good Morning America, Apple CEO Tim Cook affirmed that the company is closely monitoring advancements in AI. Cook had previously expressed concerns about AI products during an earnings call in May, pointing out a number of issues that need to be ironed out.

Despite Apple's cryptic plans in the AI domain, reliable sources have hinted at a "significant AI-related announcement" from the Cupertino-based company in the near future. If this speculation turns out to be true, it would mark an exciting milestone in Apple's AI journey.

So, will Apple finally break its silence on AI tech and come up with a surprise? The tech world waits with bated breath! Stay tuned for more updates on this unfolding story.
