OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has praised Apple’s new Vision Pro as the second most impressive technology since the iPhone. The Vision Pro is a mixed-reality headset that has the potential to usher in a new era. Business Insider reporter Jordan Hart suggested that the device has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with digital media in the real world, much like the iPhone did over 15 years ago.
Altman did not specify what he considers the most impressive technology, but it is likely that he was referring to artificial intelligence, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which he has previously discussed as having the potential to change the world. The Vision Pro is a revolutionary device that blends digital media with the real world and allows users to control its apps through their eyes and fingers.
ChatGPT, which launched in November 2022, is an example of this transformative technology. Altman has expressed his enthusiasm for the ways in which ChatGPT has already begun to influence industry and daily life in unprecedented ways and his hope to make it a “supersmart personal assistant” for work. However, he has also criticized its name as being “horrible.”
Altman’s praise for these two emerging technologies demonstrates his excitement for their potential power to change our interactions with technology and shape our future.
