The Chinese Ernie Bot has received recognition from an expert audience. Baidu, the company responsible for generating the product, rose 15% in Hong Kong on Friday morning after falling 6.4 percent due to a poorly presented service.
Only a few individuals may access the bot via invitation codes, according to Citigroup experts. Baidu shares rose in value on the stock exchange as a result.
Ernie's users say the bot has advantages in some areas, but it is less adept at translating from Chinese to English and writing code than Microsoft's GPT-4-based search engine. Like Microsoft's solution, Baidu's bot was unable to contextualize previous answers in a conversation.
Ernie Bot has an important advantage in that it is able to generate both text and images, as well as video.
According to Baidu's founder and CEO, the new AI technology is being launched because there is market demand. The technology is also being integrated into the Xiaodu smart speaker, the Apollo autonomous driving module, and the iQiyi video platform.
