Elon Musk's anger with Apple Intelligence and ChatGPT: 'an unacceptable security violation'

Manzana this Monday presented the new artificial intelligence functions that its iPhone, iPad and computers Mac more capable they will have starting this fall. The company has called him Apple Intelligencean AI that uses a series of 'powerful generative models' created by Apple that will run either locally or through what it calls 'private cloud'. But there will be a third option, which is to resort to ChatGPT and this is what no one liked one bit Elon Musk.

The billionaire owner of companies like SpaceX, tesla and xamong others, has threatened to ban the use of Apple devices in their companies. 'If Apple integrates OpenAI at the operating system level, then Apple devices will be banned in my companies. This is an unacceptable security breach.', he wrote on Twitter. 'And visitors will have to leave their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage,' he added.

He later responded to a tweet from Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, on Apple Intelligence stating 'I don't want it. 'Either we stop this creepy spyware or all Apple devices will be banned from my companies' premises.'

Minutes later, he stressed his criticism by stating that 'It is evidently absurd that Apple may not be smart enough to create its own AIbut somehow be able to ensure that OpenAI protects your security and privacy! Apple has no idea what really happens once they hand over their data to OpenAI. They are selling you down the river.'

Although Apple was not very clear about the technology behind its AI during the presentation, Yes, it has denied that it does not use its own AI models in the press releases published after the conference. According to Tim Cook's company, Siri and the different artificial intelligence functions that come to the Apple ecosystem They use language models created by Apple and ChatGPT will be an option that Siri will offer for some responses and that is also part of Writing Tools, the new writing assistance tools. That is, Apple does have its own AI.

'Apple Intelligence is made up of multiple high-capacity generative models that are specialized for the daily tasks of our users and can adapt on the fly to their current activity,' the company states. Two of these models, the one that runs locally and the one that runs in Apple's private cloud, 'are part of a broader family of generative models created by Apple to help users and developers'.

Apple has noted that the integration of ChatGPT with Siri does not require the creation of an OpenAI account, which is necessary to use ChatGPT, which Apple's privacy policies apply and the information is not stored.

OpenAI, for its part, has pointed out in another release that 'privacy protections are built in when accessing ChatGPT within Siri and Writing Tools: OpenAI does not store requests and users' IP addresses are hidden. Users can also choose to connect their ChatGPT account, which means that Your data preferences will be applied according to ChatGPT's policies.. That is, if a ChatGPT Plus subscriber enters their OpenAI username to access the exclusive features of the paid version, then Apple's privacy stops counting.
