Alibaba Makes Available For Public Use Its ChatGPT-Like Artificial Intelligence (AI) Algorithm As Chinese Regulations Loosen
Only a few weeks have passed since Chinese authorities started accepting applications for AI systems with public interfaces.
Tongyi Qianwen, a system powered by AI owned by Alibaba, will be accessible to the general public and businesses in all of China beginning on September 13. A big AI language model similar to ChatGPT called Tongyi Qianwen was developed using an archive of English and Chinese literature. Alibaba has previously made available two 7 billion-parameter freely available algorithms centered on the Tongyi Qianwen design, though its particulars are unknown. Early rumors claimed it would be developed with up to 10 trillion variables, which is 10 times as many as OpenAI's GPT4.
Tongyi Qianwen was initially only accessible to a small number of individuals during its beta testing stage. The public deployment takes place at the same time that limits on the usage of artificial intelligence (AI) methods in the People's Republic of China have recently been loosened. All future public releases of AI technologies must go through an additional screening and certification process, according to a set of regulations the Chinese government announced in June. The regulations became effective on August 15. As Cointelegraph stated, a number of Chinese businesses, including Baidu, Tencent, TikTok, and ByteDance, received permission to launch models.

The increased limits include regulations that prohibit the creation of photographs of China's president, Xi Jinping, and requirements that corporations take action against problematic information within three months. Prior U.S drafts of the law included financial penalties, but as Cointelegraph noted, those ideas were dropped. The United States has only begun to regulate AI technologies, while China looks towards relaxing its laws. The latest discussion, the first of nine planned ones, was sponsored by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on September 13 and featured a long list of leading American tech CEOs and entrepreneurs.
