Alibaba on Thursday launched its AI rival ChatGPT as Chinese tech giants race to take the lead in the AI race.
ChatGBT, developed by the American company OpenAI, is an artificial intelligence-based chatbot that can answer user questions. The app went viral, sparking huge interest in the field of generative AI, the technology behind ChatGPT.
Last month, Alibaba unveiled its “Tongyi Qianwen” large language model, a system that learns on massive amounts of data to recognize and create content, according to CNBC, which was reviewed by Al Arabiya.net.
Alibaba’s cloud computing division, which leads the company’s artificial intelligence operations, said on Thursday that “Tongyi Qianwen” will be integrated into a digital assistant called “Tingwu.”
The AI-powered personal assistant app will be able to analyze multimedia content and generate a text summary from video and audio files, Alibaba said.
Tongyi Tingwu, which is now available for public testing, will also first be integrated into DingTalk, a business-focused messaging service operated by Alibaba.
For his part, Jingren Zhou, CTO of Alibaba Cloud Computing, said: “We live in a time where more and more video and audio content in various formats are consumed every day. use the big language model for faster understanding. Improved and simple sharing of multimedia content.
Alibaba said it will release additional features for the Tongyi Tingwu later this year, including real-time translation of multimedia content from English to Chinese. The service will be a plugin for the Google Chrome web browser.
The company will also work with enterprise cloud computing clients to create customized AI products based on its language model.
Alibaba’s latest offering comes as Chinese tech giants talk about their AI capabilities as a way to spur growth for their businesses, which have been hit by a slowdown in the domestic economy and tightening regulations from Beijing.
