Title: Baidu’s ERNIE Bot: Open to Public with Advanced ai Capabilities and New Regulations in China

Baidu Launches ERNIE Bot for Public Use

Chinese tech giant, Baidu, has recently announced that its generative ai product, ERNIE Bot, is now accessible to the public through various app stores and its official Website. ERNIE Bot, which can generate text, images, and videos based on natural language inputs, is powered by the advanced deep learning model, ERNIE (Enhanced Representation through Knowledge Integration).

History of ERNIE: From Research to Market Leader

The first version of ERNIE was introduced and open-sourced in 2019 by researchers at Tsinghua University. The model, which demonstrated natural language understanding capabilities through combining text and knowledge graph data, became the first model to surpass human performance on specific benchmarks in late 2019. ERNIE 3.0, released by Baidu’s researchers in 2021, achieved new milestones and set a top score on SuperGLUE, outperforming models from Google and Microsoft.

Baidu’s CEO and ERNIE Bot: Understanding, Generation, Reasoning, and Memory

According to Baidu’s CEO Robin Li, opening up ERNIE Bot to the public will enable the company to gather more human feedback, improve the user experience, and demonstrate the four core abilities of generative ai: understanding, generation, reasoning, and memory. ERNIE Bot can help users with various tasks, including writing, learning, entertainment, and work.

ERNIE Bot’s Capabilities in Literature, Art, and Science

First unveiled in March 2023, ERNIE Bot showcases its capabilities in literature, art, and science by summarizing a sci-fi novel, generating images and videos based on text inputs, and even offering suggestions to expand the story in an expanded universe.

China’s New Regulations on Generative ai: Balancing Innovation and Ethics

Baidu is one of the first Chinese companies to release a generative ai experience to the public, following new regulations issued by Chinese authorities. These rules go beyond current regulations in other parts of the world and aim to ensure responsible and ethical usage of generative ai. They cover various aspects, such as content, data, technology, fairness, and licensing. Operators must ensure their services adhere to socialist core values and avoid harmful or illegal content. Intellectual property rights must be respected, and fairness and non-discrimination are required.

Implications for Domestic and International ai Developments

China’s regulations not only apply to domestic operators but also serve as a benchmark for international discussions on ai governance and ethical practices. Stay updated with the latest enterprise technology events and webinars powered by TechForge.
