TECH

Safari, Spotlight Search, and Siri will gain significant AI-related enhancements with the release of iOS 18. One of the key features in the works for Safari is text summarization. Siri will also receive a similar update, allowing it to generate responses to relay the content of messages in a simplified way. Apple's AI model will generate basic responses entirely on-device. More advanced replies or text summaries will need server-side processing.

OpenAI is collaborating with Stack Overflow, the Q&A forum for software developers, to improve its generative AI modelsโ€™ performance on programming-related tasks.

PROGRAMMING AND DESIGN

This article discusses how the team at Figma automatically migrated Skew, a custom programming language, to TypeScript without disrupting a single day of development. Figma created Skew to squeeze additional performance out of its playback engine. Using Skew made it difficult to onramp new hires. Skew couldn't easily integrate with the rest of Figma's code base and it was missing a developer ecosystem outside of Figma. Using TypeScript enabled streamlined integration, modern JavaScript features, and seamless onboarding.

Many modern performance benchmarks rely on GPT-4 as a judge of generation quality. Prometheus is a model built on top of Mistral that performs extremely well on this task.
