Tongyi Qianwen will initially be incorporated into DingTalk, Alibaba’s internal messaging software, and may be used to write emails, summarise meeting notes, and create business proposals.
Tongyi Qianwen, an AI large language model comparable to GPT that Alibaba Group Holding Ltd revealed on Tuesday, will soon be included into all of the company’s business operations, according to Reuters.
It will initially be incorporated into DingTalk, Alibaba’s internal messaging software, and may be used to write emails, summarise meeting notes, and create business proposals. Moreover, Tmall Genie, Alibaba’s voice assistant, will receive it.
“We are at a technological watershed moment driven by generative AI and cloud computing, and businesses across all sectors have started to embrace intelligence transformation to stay ahead of the game,” Daniel Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Alibaba Group, and CEO of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, said in a statement.
Tongyi Qianwen is based on Tongyi, a framework for pre-trained models that Alibaba owns and uses to combine different AI models. Alibaba’s decision to include an AI language model into its commercial apps is a sign of how crucial artificial intelligence is becoming to modern business practises. Alibaba hopes to compete with US rivals like OpenAI, Microsoft Bing chatbot, and even Google Bard using Tongyi Qianwen.
Tongyi Qianwen of Alibaba will be able to communicate in both Mandarin and English. The business is the second Chinese startup to launch its own variation of ChatGPT-like large language model. The Ernie chatbot from Baidu has also been released.
