The service is called 360 Zhinao 4.0 and can handle text, image, speech and video. The chatbot uses AIGC (Artificial Intelligence General Computing) technology, which allows it to adapt quickly to different scenarios and tasks.
Zhou Hongyi, founder of 360 Security Technology, said that Chinese language models «are already on par with GPT-3.5 and are chasing GPT-4 at a tremendous rate.» He also said that 360 Zhinao 4.0 has an advantage over ChatGPT in that it supports Chinese.
The company has integrated 360 Zhinao 4.0 into its search engine, browser and other products. It is also looking for partners to help speed up development and narrow the technology gap.
Many large Chinese companies, including Baidu and Alibaba, are currently developing similar systems. In late February, Fudan University in Shanghai announced that it was the first in China to develop and openly test its own artificial intelligence chatbot, which is similar to ChatGPT. The system, created by Professor Qiu Xipeng’s team, is called Moss. This chatbot can perform tasks such as generating conversations, programming, and formulating and answering questions. This project is supported by the Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
