In March, the Chinese tech giant Baidu is set to launch its public version of the Ernie AI chatbot.
This exciting new chatbot uses a larger language model than ChatGPT and promises to be a game-changer in the world of conversational AI.
With 260 billion parameters, Ernie 3.0 Titan has more predictive values than its competitors, making it a formidable opponent in the race for the best chatbot on the market. Baidu’s Ernie chatbot is named after the Enhanced Representation through Knowledge Integration (Ernie) model, which was developed by Baidu researchers in 2019. This model integrates comprehensive knowledge with a massive amount of data, resulting in exceptional performance in language comprehension and generation. It is not yet clear what the AI chatbot can do and what it is capable of, but Baidu’s ambitious plans for generative artificial intelligence suggest that it will be an exciting addition to the chatbot landscape.
One of the unique features of Baidu’s chatbot is that it has been trained on both Western and Chinese scripts. While it is not clear if Baidu has plans to release the chatbot to Western users, it is exciting to see a Chinese tech company releasing a chatbot that is not limited to Chinese characters.
Baidu has announced their plans for their chatbots without showing them to the public yet and this is a clear indication that they are feeling the heat from ChatGPT.
