Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a hot topic in both the tech and business worlds. In recent years, China has been leading the charge in the development of AI technology, with many Chinese companies competing to release their own versions of conversational AI software. Baidu, Inc. is the first to release its version of chat-based AI bot, called ‘Ernie Bot’, which is set to be released in September this year. Other Chinese companies such as Alibaba, Tencent, JD.com, and Fudan University are also developing their own versions of the chat-based AI.
However, not everyone is in favor of the new AI technology. JP Morgan Chase has asked its employees to stay away from the software and the US Military has been told not to access it. This is due to concerns that the technology could be used by enemies or outsiders to gather confidential information.
It is important to note that the technology itself is not to blame, but rather the people who use it. A survey published in the PLoS One Journal suggests that 39% of household chores, such as cooking and housecleaning, will be automated within the next 10 years. This could be seen as a positive step forward, but it is important to remember that AI technology should always be used responsibly.
In conclusion, Chinese companies are competing to develop AI technology, particularly chat-based conversational AI. While this technology has the potential to provide many benefits to humankind, it is also important to be aware of the potential risks and to use AI responsibly.
