Chinese ChatGPT users has been gave its approval to the first huge language model-enabled public services exactly one month after it announced its provisional steps to oversee generative artificial intelligence.
Among the eight generative AI applications that have been registered with China’s internet authorities are Baidu’s Ernie Bot, ByteDance’s Doubao, the Sogou founder’s Baichuan, and chatbots developed at Tsinghua University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences labs.
After twenty years of enacting IT policies that were too lax, China is now placing an emphasis on innovation control rather than development speed. Chinese ChatGPT users has developed a few licensing frameworks to regulate its digital economy, giving it more control over the huge volumes of data that impact people’s ideas and lives. This gives China a competitive advantage in the global digital market.
Before a company can publish their game on app marketplaces in China, they are required to first file it with the appropriate authorities and have the content reviewed.
Because of its unpredictable characteristics, generative AI is an ideal target for the Chinese authorities, who are taking strong measures to regulate the rapidly developing technology. The law concerning artificial intelligence mandates that companies that provide generative AI services obtain an administrative license and register algorithms that have the potential to influence public opinion with the relevant government institution.
A number of months after the internet giants introduced their ChatGPT counterparts but restricted access to industry insiders, the successful filings of the LLM chatbots may lead to quick growth and widespread deployment in China. Baidu’s Ernie Bot ranked first among China’s free iOS apps just one day after the business submitted its application, which led to an increase in the company’s share price in Hong Kong on Thursday.
