ChatGPT is powerful and cannot be used in areas ruled by the CCP
On November 30, 2022, the American company OpenAI launched the human-machine chat software ChatGPT (full name: Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer), which caused a sensation when it was released.
According to the UBS report, as of the end of January this year, the number of monthly active users of ChatGPT has exceeded 100 million, and it has only been launched for two months, making it the fastest growing consumer application in history.
One of the founders of OpenAI and Tesla CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) publicly stated that “we are not far from a dangerously powerful AI” and that it is “terribly powerful”.
According to public information, ChatGPT is powerful. It can conduct dialogues and interact with people by learning and analyzing human language, and can even complete tasks such as writing emails, video scripts, copywriting, translation, and code. Tool of.
What the outside world is worried about is whether such advanced AI products will gradually control human behavior, replace certain jobs and increase unemployment.
On the other hand, because ChatGPT can discuss almost any issue with humans, including sensitive people and political issues, the software is banned in some totalitarian-controlled areas, including mainland China and Hong Kong.
Chinese science and technology companies follow suit but quickly “overturn”
Facing the new technological challenges of OpenAI, in February 2023, Google launched Bard, a chat AI service similar to ChatGPT. Its chief executive, Pichai Sundararajan, said the technology would be integrated into Google’s search engine and some of the technical content would be open to outside developers.
Tech companies in mainland China are starting to follow suit. Internet technology companies such as Baidu, Ali, Tencent, Xiaomi, ByteDance, and Kuaishou have successively claimed that they have made technical layouts in the ChatGPT field.
Baidu announced on February 13 that it already has a chat robot project called “Wen Xin Yi Yan” (English name ERNIE Bot), which is similar to ChatGPT and will be launched in March.
On February 3, China Yuanyu Intelligence announced that its ChatYuan functional dialogue model-API has been launched, and claims that it can be used to answer questions, combine contextual dialogue, and do various generation tasks, including creative writing and answering legal questions. question etc. ChatYuan claimed to be the first “ChatGPT” in China, but soon its WeChat mini-program could not be opened.
According to a report by China Business News on February 9, Yuanyu Intelligence, which locates the Chinese version of ChatGPT, has “overturned” shortly after declaring war on ChatGPT. Yuanyu Intelligence has not yet responded to the status of the mini program.
“Tianyancha” information shows that Hangzhou Yuanyu Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd. was established in 2022 and is a company mainly engaged in software and information technology services.
Netizens ridicule the mainlandCopycat versionChatGPT and CCP totalitarianism
“ChatGPT” continues to spark heated discussions on the Internet. Chinese people “over the wall” to chat with ChatGPT, and the latter’s intelligent reply made viewers laugh.
As reported by Liberty Times, a mainland netizen asked: “When will China unify Taiwan?” ChatGPT replied: “Whoever unifies does not know. In the end, it must be the unification of the advanced and the backward, and the unification of civilization and barbarism.”
Because Chinese mobile phone numbers cannot register ChatGPT accounts, a large number of Chinese users have been rejected, so some netizens appealed: “China must have its own ChatGPT.”
Some netizens tried Baidu and came to the following conclusions:
Netizen Veracious said that after trying Baidu’s copycat ChatGPT, it is amazing that not only the input content has a prohibited thesaurus, but the output content cannot contain prohibited words.
“Shuangye is worried” said: What will Chinese companies do on the track of ChatGPT… The blocked vocabulary is too large.
Netizen “ji ajia” also said: ChatGPT has also been discussed for many days. But if artificial intelligence is developed in a country with manual review, isn’t it artificial mental retardation in the end?
HKUST Xunfei once claimed, “Has accumulated ChatGPT-related technologies, and maintained the core technology at the world’s cutting-edge level.” “Mars netizens” ridiculed: If others don’t do it, you have nothing! As long as other people have something to say, you all have it! Still number one in the world.
Some Zhihu users analyzed the prospect of ChatGPT copycats of mainland technology companies and said that the main obstacle is the fear of ChatGPT talking nonsense… The big language model is completely a black box. A company is a devastating blow. So there will be no team to do it at all, and it will not be open to ordinary people after it is made. Maybe five years later, in most parts of the world, GPT has replaced Google, but the mainland is still using Baidu.
