ChatGPT, a popular AI generation tool, is now available on iOS in the UK. This marks the first official mobile release, expanding the platform’s availability beyond its current presence on the web and several third-party applications.
ChatGPT is a sophisticated AI tool with a range of applications, from one-to-one chat to cost-saving content generation. Its creation last year was instrumental in driving interest around generative AI and its impact on various industries.
OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has recently confirmed plans to release an Android version of the application in the near future.
Controversy and Concerns
Generative AI remains a controversial technology given the potential implications of its widespread adoption. ChatGPT, in particular, has come under scrutiny for producing erroneous information and inaccurate responses. This is due to the cutting-edge machine learning at the heart of the platform that has allowed it to unwittingly pass off mistakes and falsehoods as truth.
Benefits and Drawbacks for Game Development
Regardless of the controversy, AI technology has huge potential for video game development. Applications such as the generation of dialogue and art assets will undoubtedly save developers significant amounts of time and resources while offering new levels of creative freedom.
However, there remains concern around the impact of AI on the industry’s workforce. While some companies like Ubisoft have reassured their human creatives of the continued importance of their roles, others like Kwalee have embraced the integration of AI alongside their human employees for a more nuanced approach.
It is unclear which aspect of the AI boom will have the greatest impact moving forward – whether it will enhance the quality and quantity of output from studios, or if it will be used as a tool by industry giants to cut costs and increase profits at the expense of human jobs.
Regardless of your stance, the release of ChatGPT on mobile is an exciting new development that will allow an even wider audience to experience the potential of AI-powered technologies.
