Alibaba may include the technology with the group’s DingTalk messaging service.
In a rush among digital businesses worldwide to demonstrate that they are current on generative artificial intelligence (AI) advances, Alibaba Group announced on Wednesday that it is building a ChatGPT-style tool that is now undergoing internal testing.
The Chinese e-commerce company made its comment in response to news that Alibaba is creating a ChatGPT-like discussion robot that is currently available for testing among its staff, according to the 21st Century Herald newspaper.
Alibaba declined to comment when contacted about the newspaper article, which also claimed that the company would integrate the technology with its DingTalk chat app.
The business claimed that for a period of years, it has concentrated on huge language models and generative AI. Large language models are natural language processing systems that can generate new content as well as understand and respond to questions because they have been trained on enormous amounts of text.
The announcement caused Alibaba‘s U.S.-listed shares to increase by 3.2% in premarket trading.
Due to investor excitement over Open.ChatGPT, Ai’s which can generate articles, essays, and jokes in response to prompts and has been dubbed the fastest-growing consumer app in history, shares in a number of other Chinese AI technology businesses have surged in recent days.
Following the announcement that testing of its “Ernie bot” would be completed in March, shares of the dominant Chinese search engine Baidu surged by 15% on Tuesday. Alphabet Inc., the company that owns Google, is also developing a chatbot service and has stated that it will increase the use of AI in its search engine.
Microsoft, the owner of Open.AI, intends to integrate ChatGPT with Bing, its search engine.
Another Chinese internet company, JD.com, announced on Wednesday that it was trying to incorporate ChatGPT-like practices and technology into some of its goods, including the customer support offered through its e-commerce platform.
According to a source familiar with the company, NetEase aims to use comparable massive language modelling techniques to support its education business.
