I Tested a Next-Gen AI Assistant. It Will Blow You Away - Will Knight, Wired

The most famous virtual valets around today—Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant—are a lot less impressive than the latest AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT or Google Bard. When the fruits of the recent generative AI boom get properly integrated into those legacy assistant bots, they will surely get much more interesting. To get a preview of what’s next, I took an experimental AI voice helper called vimGPT for a test run. When I asked it to “subscribe to WIRED,” it got to work with impressive skill, finding the correct web page and accessing the online form. If it had access to my credit card details I’m pretty sure it would have nailed it.
