On Thursday, the co-founder of the email app BlueMail informed that Apple Inc has rejected an update to email through the app which uses a customized version of OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model.
Blix’s Ben Volach said, “Apple has blocked the BlueMail update and continues to treat BlueMail unfairly and to discriminate against us”.
He also said that the other GPT-powered apps are still running and are not restricted.
Last week Apple blocked the update from the app and advised the company to either revise the app’s age rating for those over 17 or implement content filtering. According to the document reviewed the content recommended by the app may not be appropriate for all audiences.
“We want fairness. If we’re required to be 17-plus, then others should also have to,” Volach tweeted
He also claimed that various other apps with Apple advertise ChatGPT-like features that are still listed on their app store without any age restrictions.
“It suggests to us that the company may scrutinize apps with ChatGPT functionality in the same way it does others where there are concerns about the quality of the user experience and appropriate nature of the content or service provided by the app,” D.A. Davidson analyst Thomas Forte said.
In the current scenario, OpenAI’s ChatGPT has captivated the tech industry as it can generate content in response to user prompts.
This year in February Microsoft and Alphabet Inc’s Google, both announced their respective AI chatbots.
Though the AI-powered Chatbots developments are still in progress, the recent conversations were in the news for their random answers.
