  • The second is relatively distant security. Does the model destroy humans? In the future, humans will be gone, and then machines will take over the world. Whether models are smarter than people and can replace people in doing things is something worth encouraging. This technology can work with us to expand human civilization, which is meaningful.
  • The third is realistic security. The current AI capabilities are still very weak, so don’t think about something as complex as subverting human beings. In reality, there are no security issues in the near future.

Apple reveals iOS 18 “Genmoji” custom emoticon feature

Apple has introduced the "Genmoji" function in the upcoming iOS 18 system. This function is part of Apple's intelligent AI tools and allows iPhone users to enter text to generate new Emoji expressions.

Now Apple has revealed the secrets behind Genmoji functionality at a WWDC event. Apple has designed an NSAdaptiveImageGlyph API for Genmoji, stickers, Memoji and other images. Developers and users calling this API will generate content close to Emoji.

The API uses a standard image format with a square aspect ratio, supports multiple resolutions, and has enhanced metadata. Genmoji and other content using the API can be used like regular text, similar to Emoji.

Apple says Genmoji can be used alone, copied, pasted and sent as stickers, and Genmoji is supported anywhere rich text is supported.

However, unlike Emoji, Genmoji is not a Unicode-encoded hieroglyph, which means that it will not be as widely supported as Emoji itself. Older versions of Apple systems and apps that do not support rich text will use text descriptions to represent Genmoji.

Genmoji and other Apple smart features have not yet appeared in the beta version of iOS 18. Apple plans to start testing Apple smart features this fall.
