  • According to a report, there have been discussions between OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and former Apple designer Jony Ive about the potential creation of a new hardware device for AI.

  • The specifics of the report are unclear, however we believe that an AI-driven smartphone would be the optimal means of making AI more accessible to a larger audience.


Mobile phone manufacturers have started incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) as a related technology to smartphones, which is logical. The most advanced smartphones now utilize AI and machine learning on the device to enhance various intelligent features. If smartphone producers can experiment with AI, can AI companies also experiment with smartphones? According to a recent report, the CEO of OpenAI may have had similar considerations.

Based on information from sources familiar with the discussions, it is reported that Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, had a meeting with Jony Ive, a well-known former designer at Apple, to explore the potential development of a new AI hardware device. The CEO of investment group SoftBank, Masayoshi Son, is also said to have been involved in these conversations.
