Artificial intelligence developer McKay Wrigley has demonstrated a simple method to replace Apple’s voice-activated assistant, Siri, with the ChatGPT chatbot using Apple’s built-in Shortcuts app. Wrigley’s video showcasing the chatbot shortcut has received over three million views since its release on Monday. Apple Shortcuts is a visual, code-free app that facilitates the automation of tasks with a single tap or voice command. ChatGPT, a creation of OpenAI, has been captivating users with its conversation skills, wit, and vast knowledge since its most recent GPT-4 update became publicly available two weeks ago. Commenters on Wrigley’s post have improved and augmented his hack in various ways, including speeding up the output, rendering it as text instead of speech, and maintaining a history of past queries for context. While ChatGPT’s popularity is increasing, it is uncertain whether it will replace Siri and other voice assistants such as Alexa. When asked about the comparison between the two, ChatGPT stated that as an AI language model, it is not appropriate to compare itself with Siri since both have unique features and serve distinct purposes. On the other hand, Siri responded by saying, “I’m not sure I understand the question.”
