Chinese Apps Step Up in the Global AI Competition as ChatGPT is Discarded
The global race to develop artificial intelligence (AI) technology has intensified as several popular Chinese apps have removed access to ChatGPT, the AI chatbot that has taken the world by storm. Major Chinese tech companies are now competing with each other to create their equivalent of ChatGPT.
ChatGPT was developed by OpenAI, a research lab based in San Francisco and backed by Microsoft co-founder Elon Musk. It is an advanced natural language processing system that can generate human-like conversations when given a prompt or question from its users. Since its launch last year, it had become increasingly popular among app developers looking for ways to improve user engagement on their platforms.
However, many of China’s top tech giants such as Tencent and Baidu have been investing heavily into developing similar technologies over the past few years and are now beginning to see results from their efforts with products like Xiaodu Smart Speaker being released onto the market earlier this year. As they continue working towards creating more sophisticated AI systems than ChatGPT, these companies will likely be removing access from any third-party services that could potentially compete against them in future developments within this field of technology.Read more at CNN
