Baidu, the renowned Chinese tech company, recently announced that their Chinese-language generative AI chatbot, Ernie Bot, has surpassed the milestone of 100 million users. This achievement was revealed by Baidu's Chief Technology Officer, Haifeng Wang, during a deep-learning developer conference in Beijing.
While Baidu is best known for its Chinese-language search engine, it has been making significant strides in the field of artificial intelligence. Baidu CEO Robin Li previously stated that Ernie Bot rivals OpenAI's GPT-4 model in terms of overall performance. The current iteration of Ernie Bot is built on Baidu's Ernie 4.0 large language model.
Since its release in August, Ernie Bot has proven to be an invaluable tool in various workplace scenarios. It has generated a staggering 3.7 billion words of text, written 300 million lines of code, processed 400 million words of contracts, and even created 5 million travel itineraries, among other notable accomplishments.
Baidu also shared an update on their PaddlePaddle deep learning development platform. Over 10.7 million developers have used PaddlePaddle, resulting in the creation of 860,000 models to date.
While Ernie Bot does have some capability to understand English-language prompts, it is primarily trained using Chinese text and code. Therefore, for most U.S. users without the ability to read Chinese, accessing Ernie Bot may prove to be impossible.
Baidu's continuous advancements in AI technology, exemplified by Ernie Bot and their PaddlePaddle platform, solidify their position as a major player in the global tech industry.
