China’s Alibaba invites businesses to trial AI chatbot
Tech giant Alibaba (9988.HK) is seeking companies to test its Tongyi Qianwen AI chatbot, business publication STAR Market Daily reported on Friday, joining the rush to emulate the explosive success of ChatGPT.
The free-to-use ChatGPT, a large language model (LLM) application created by Microsoft-backed (MSFT.O) OpenAI, was released to the public last November and can generate articles and essays on demand in response to user prompts.
Alibaba has opened up registration for businesses to conduct testing for its AI application, STAR Market reported without specifying details.
A source close to the matter confirmed to Reuters that the application was an LLM targeted at business users.
Alibaba’s cloud computing division published a teaser on Friday, posting a message on social media simply stating: “Hello, my name is Tongyi Qianwen, this is our first time meeting, I welcome your feedback.”
