China Grants Regulatory Approval for ByteDance and Baidu to Launch AI Chatbots

AI/MLChina Grants Regulatory Approval for ByteDance and Baidu to Launch AI Chatbots

China has reportedly granted regulatory approval to several tech companies to release their artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots to the public. Notably, ByteDance and Baidu are among the companies poised to receive this approval.

This development holds significance for ByteDance and Baidu as they seek to enhance their business models and boost advertising revenue. ByteDance, renowned for its global social media app TikTok, is preparing to launch its Doubao AI chatbot to the public, emphasizing its dedication to advancing generative AI products and their commercialization.

Baidu, on the other hand, is set to introduce its public version of the service, named Ernie. Previously, Ernie was accessible to a limited group of users responsible for testing the chatbot. However, with regulatory approval, anyone with a Chinese phone number can now access this free platform.

Interest in this technology is growing in China, with other Chinese tech companies like SenseTime and Zhipu also entering the chatbot arena.

With Beijing’s approval, these technologies can potentially compete with their US-developed counterparts on the international stage, as they aim for superiority in the AI chatbot space.
