Details of cooperation between Apple and OpenAI revealed: no need to pay each other, revenue will be shared

At this week's WWDC Developer Conference, Apple released the "Apple Smart" artificial intelligence suite and officially announced its cooperation with OpenAI. However, Apple officials did not provide details of their cooperation with OpenAI, such as whether both parties need to pay.

Bloomberg received news yesterday that neither party would pay the other party for this cooperation. Apple believes that pushing OpenAI's brand and technology to its hundreds of millions of devices has equal or even greater value than monetary payments; and Apple's acquisition of advanced chatbot technology will attract users to spend more time using their devices, and may Spend money to upgrade the AI ​​solution.

ChatGPT will be available for free on Apple products, but OpenAI and Apple will still make money by converting free users to paid accounts, and if users pay for subscriptions on Apple devices, Apple will also get a cut.

This solution currently seems to bring more costs to OpenAI, because when Apple users use ChatGPT for free, OpenAI needs to pay for Microsoft Azure cloud computing services.

Bloomberg also mentioned the latest progress in the national version of “Apple Smart”: Apple has not yet reached an agreement with any local Chinese provider for chatbot functions, but has been considering reaching an agreement with Baidu and Alibaba .

  • Tesla proposes to move company registration from Delaware to Texas

  • Tesla proposes to appoint PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as Tesla's independent registered accounting firm until the end of the fiscal year on December 31, 2024

This compensation plan was proposed in 2018. If Musk achieves his goals, it will grant Musk approximately 300 million in incentive stock options. The plan was approved by more than 70% of shareholders at the time, but was rejected by a Delaware shareholder five months ago. A state judge rejected it, and Musk then asked for a new vote. Tesla is expected to appeal if it passes.

In 2018, these options were valued at $56 billion, and at current Tesla stock prices, these options are currently worth nearly $50 billion.

At the press conference, Musk also previewed three models being developed by Tesla and said "these models will be very special," but did not provide any details about the new models.

He also mentioned that Tesla must produce a Cybertruck "special edition" model that meets Chinese and EU standards before it can be exported, but this is not the first priority.
