#1 — Apple Vision Pro

The first major AI news item of the week is only indirectly related to AI: Apple has successfully started selling its Vision Pro MR headset. Judging by the first reviews, the device has its drawbacks. The image quality, as well as the location of content windows, however, are impressive and significantly surpass competitors — all thanks to AI technologies and a neural processor under the hood. Whether the device will be popular is an open question, but the "Apple effect" can already be seen: people wearing the Vision Pro glasses (or a helmet?) are already on the streets (and, in some viral video clips, apparently driving Teslas). It looks like cyberpunk is lurking around the corner.

#2 — Launch of Claude API from Anthropic

The second newsbreak is directly related to AI. Anthropic, the AI company that developed the bot named Claude (a competitor of ChatGPT), announced the launch of an API. So far, it’s available to a limited number of users only through Early Access, but anyone can apply. This means OpenAI's API is about to face a worthy competitor, which we’ve all been waiting for (although we haven't seen the prices yet…).

#3 — Navigator in the LLM World

The third piece of news is for those who don’t want to buy an Apple helmet or wait for an API. A group of enthusiasts from the open-source community released the Jan AI app, a full-fledged desktop navigator for modern LLMs. Jan AI allows you to set up any popular open-source network locally, in just a couple of clicks, through a beautiful UI. The app has a catalog of neural networks, a convenient chat, settings, and an API for developers. As a bonus, you can link your ChatGPT account. Now, even without knowledge of Docker, you can set up a modern private LLM on your computer. The team promises to port the app to mobile operating systems soon.
