Sources say Apple is using large language models to transform Siri

According to X user Tech_Reve, Apple is currently using large language models (LLM) to completely transform Siri into the "ultimate virtual assistant" and is preparing to develop it into Apple's most powerful killer AI application.

It is reported that this integrated development work is actively underway, and the first product is expected to be unveiled at WWDC 2024 and will become the main feature of iPhone 16 and subsequent models.

Tech_Reve said that Apple, like Samsung, will focus on device-side operation and cooperate with the cloud to implement related AI services. This is because AI runs locally with faster response times, does not require a network connection, and is more private.

According to a previous report by Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, John Giannandrea, Apple's senior vice president of artificial intelligence, is overseeing the development of the underlying technology of the new AI system, and his team is deeply transforming Siri to achieve this goal. This smarter Siri could be ready as early as next year.

Meanwhile, Apple's software engineering team is adding AI to iOS 18, where they have been asked to include features that run on the company's Large Language Model (LLM), which uses large amounts of data to hone AI capabilities.

These new features further improve the ability of Siri and messaging apps to answer questions and self-complete sentences.

Tesla Model 3/Y long-range version increases price, up to 2,500 yuan

Yesterday morning, Tesla’s official Weibo announced that starting from now, the price of the Model 3/Y long-range version will be officially increased.

The price of the Model 3 long-range version increased by 1,500 yuan to 297,400 yuan. The price of the Model Y long-range version has increased by 2,500 yuan to 302,400 yuan.

Tesla said that Model Y has completed the evolutionary upgrade of all models on October 1. Multi-color ambient lights have been added to the interior, and updated technical fabric materials have been selected for the dashboard trim and front door trim. The appearance has been updated with a 19-inch Gemini wheel design.

Tesla also emphasized that its pricing system has always been fair and transparent. After the price increase, Model Y is still the best product at the same price in the domestic market.

The new Model 3 has officially started pre-sales on September 1, and the exhibition cars have already arrived at major exhibition halls. As a mid-term facelift, the new car has been adjusted in appearance, interior, power, and battery life.

Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the Passenger Car Association, said in an interview with the media that Tesla’s price increase for Model Y and Model 3 is a price adjustment plan due to increased profit pressure.

ByteDance PICO responds to rumors of “layoffs of 80%”

Recently, ByteDance officially announced the organizational structure adjustment of PICO, which attracted attention.

PICO posted on its official Weibo that recently, we have noticed false rumors about PICO's "business closure", "layoffs of 80%" and "thousands of employees".

PICO said, "The organizational structure is adjusted to better focus on long-term exploration and breakthroughs in hardware and core technologies, and to create long-term value with greater determination."

Correspondingly, the short-term investment and related team size will be reduced, involving more than 300 employees, accounting for about 23% of the total.

PICO emphasized that this organizational adjustment will not affect consumers' purchase and experience of PICO products, and the company will increase investment in product research and development and core technology capability building.

OpenAI responds to ChatGPT crash

Starting at 9 a.m. Eastern Time on November 8, OpenAI's ChatGPT and API services experienced a major failure. The interruption lasted for more than 2 hours, during which all services were unavailable.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman publicly apologized on X, saying that usage of the new features released this week far exceeded expectations.

On the evening of November 8, ChatGPT and API once again had problems that sometimes could not be opened. OpenAI stated in the latest system update:

"We are dealing with periodic outages caused by DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks that have caused unusual traffic patterns. We are continuing to work to mitigate this issue."

At around 0:00 yesterday, OpenAI officially responded that we discovered the problem and implemented the fix, and now we see that our service has responded normally.

According to official data disclosed by OpenAI, as of now, the number of weekly active users of ChatGPT has reached 100 million. OpenAI held its first developer conference on Monday, launching a preview version of GPT-4 Turbo, as well as new features that allow users to create custom GPTs.

Microsoft plans to bring Copilot AI assistant to Windows 10

According to Windows Central, Microsoft plans to introduce Copilot AI assistant to Windows 10 systems in an upcoming update.

Copilot's experience and functionality will be largely the same on Windows 10 and Windows 11, including plug-in compatibility between the two versions of the operating system.

The main reason behind this decision is market share considerations. Currently, the number of monthly active devices for Windows 10 exceeds 1 billion, while the number of monthly active devices for Windows 11 is 400 million.

Microsoft believes that the additional 1 billion users is a potential market for Copilot to expand. The increase in the user base will also help increase developers' interest in building more plug-ins for Copilot.

In addition, the current end of support date for Windows 10 is set for October 2025. Microsoft is still discussing internally whether to extend this date, but the final decision has not yet been made.

In the third quarter financial report conference call, Li Xiang said that all pure electric products of Li Auto will adhere to three principles:

  • Charging breakthroughs, including charging speed and charging infrastructure;
  • A breakthrough in space, ideally any product would have the largest space among products of the same level;
  • Breakthroughs in styling, ideal styling design will insist on putting the design of the next few decades into the present, breaking through the design styles of all levels of models.

When it comes to competition with Huawei, Li Xiang said that Li Auto's management has a unified understanding of facing Huawei: 80% is learning, 20% is showing respect, and zero complaints.

In 2024, Li Auto plans to launch and deliver a total of 4 products, including the L6 in the first half of the year and three pure electric products in the second half of the year. Li Xiang also said that next year will be the company’s “most abundant product year” since its establishment.
