Ai Pin, the new gadget/wearable/projector/thing from secretive startup Humane, may cost up to $1,000 and may require a monthly data subscription, according to the information.
The mysterious device has been in development for years, but we got our first good look at it during a presentation by co-founder Imran Chowdhury at TED this year. In the presentation, he used an unnamed device to accept a phone call, get information about where to buy a gift, translate a sentence that is then spoken by an AI-made version of his voice in French, and even get an opinion on whether he can eat a piece of chocolate. . It was an impressive demo, although we had a lot of questions about how it all worked.
Ai Pin is a “small screenless device about the size of a pretzel.” the information Reports, which will contain “a camera, microphone, speaker, a variety of sensors and a laser projector.” It will attach to your clothes magnetically (as seen in the device’s debut at Paris Fashion Week). It will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip that will give it “smartphone-level speed, connectivity, camera capabilities and security,” and Humane plans to become an MVNO so it can sell cellular data that customers can use with Ai Pin. (Bethany Bongiorno, co-founder of Humane, described Ai Pin This month As a standalone device representing a “phone, contextual computer, and software platform.”)
Ai Pin’s AI features will be powered by a special big language model, the information He says – which we already knew short time Writing He said the device uses “a combination of proprietary software and OpenAI’s GPT.” (a Previous version of that article He said that Ai Pin uses GPT-4, but the “4” is not present in the live version.) time The piece also described a “Trust Light” privacy indicator that activates when the camera, microphone, or “input sensors” are triggered.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the device or the future of Humane once it launches. But according to the information Sources, Humane has a greater vision than just Ai Pin; “They suggest that Humane hopes to create a complete paradigm shift in consumer computing.” I’m a bit skeptical about this, but I guess we’ll see if Humane hints at this future when it shares more about Ai Pin on November 9th.
