Apple reveals AI model that 'substantially outperformed' ChatGPT-4

The field of large language models (LLMs) is seeing significant progress, with Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) unveiling a new artificial intelligence (AI) technology model that claims to outperform OpenAI‘s ChatGPT.

Complex AI systems, trained on vast datasets of text and code, exhibit proficiency in tasks ranging from pattern recognition and language translation to creative content generation and informative question-answering.

Apple’s research paper, published on April 1, details a system called ReALM that leverages LLMs to improve virtual assistant capabilities.

Apple’s AI eyes Siri upgrade with ReALM

The research paper presents a novel approach to reference resolution, a crucial aspect of natural language understanding (NLU).

Understanding the meaning behind pronouns and other indirect references used in conversation constitutes reference resolution.

Digital assistants like Siri face particular challenges in this regard, as they must interpret both spoken words and the visual context on the user’s device screen, as well as ongoing background tasks.

Traditionally, reference resolution for digital assistants has entailed a complex process of analyzing various verbal cues and visual information.

Apple’s ReALM system adopts a different approach, aiming to reframe this intricate process as a pure language modeling problem.

This transformation allows ReALM to understand references to visual elements displayed on the screen and seamlessly integrate this understanding into the conversational flow.

The implementation of ReALM holds the potential to enhance Siri’s ability to grasp the context of a conversation, process information displayed on the user’s device, and consider ongoing background activities.

Apple’s ReALM surpasses GPT-4:

Significantly, the researchers behind ReALM benchmarked their experiments against OpenAI’s leading LLMs, GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. 

Their findings indicate that even the smallest ReALM model achieved performance comparable to GPT-4, while larger ReALM models reportedly “substantially outperformed” it.

The Future of Siri and Beyond

The publication of this research paper suggests that Apple may be considering incorporating features from ReALM into Siri, possibly unveiling them at their upcoming WWDC 2024 event in June.

ReALM’s primary focus lies in comprehending the context of conversations, encompassing visual elements on the user’s device, and potentially handling background tasks.

Although promising, it’s crucial to acknowledge that this research is undergoing development and has yet to undergo peer review.

Anyway, observing ReALM’s performance in real-world scenarios and comparing it with other advancements in conversational AI will be interesting.
