Huawei is an advance player in technology such as ChatGPT: Chief
ChatGPT is a raging storm on the internet and everyone is talking about this AI-powered instant reply software but Huawei says, it has long mastered such technology.
A person in charge of Huawei’s computing product section said that Huawei began to have a layout in the large model in 2020. In the following year, Huawei launched Pengcheng Pangu, which is a super-large model and the first of its kind in the industry.
This model can generate 100 billion levels of processes and can generate responses or understand Chinese natural language processing as well as speech recognition.
To be mentioned, Pangu NLP large model was the world’s largest Chinese language pre-training model with 100 billion parameters at that time. The sample tuning of the data improves the application performance of the model in the scenario.
Recently, two patents have surfaced on China’s intellectual property office, which reveal Huawei’s use of AI in instant reply software. However, we can say that Huawei has already applied a lot of AI software to human conversation technology, which was way ahead of ChatGPT. But Huawei has not revealed any plans to implement such tech in Huawei devices.
ChatGPT was launched as a prototype on November 30, 2022, and quickly garnered attention for its detailed responses and articulate answers across many domains of knowledge. Its uneven factual accuracy, however, was identified as a significant drawback. Following the release of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s valuation was estimated at US$29 billion.
