tencent’s new chatbot takes on chatgpt in ai showdown
Imagine if your computer could chat with you like a friend. That’s what Tencent, a big Chinese tech company, is trying to do with its new chatbot called “Hunyuan Aide.” They say it’s as good as one of the best chatbots in the US called ChatGPT.
Well, Tencent released this chatbot to the public, and they showed it off in a live demo. In the demo, the chatbot talked to a person and even solved a math problem. They say it’s super smart and can answer tricky questions.
Tencent’s Vice President, Jiang Jie, claimed that Hunyuan Aide is even better than an earlier model of ChatGPT called GPT-3.5 and just as good as the latest GPT-4. These are like versions of super-smart computer talkers.
What’s interesting is that Hunyuan Aide can also handle tough questions from China’s big university entrance exam, which is quite impressive.
But here’s the catch: We can’t be sure if all these claims are true because they haven’t been checked by anyone else yet.
Tencent says that their chatbot is better at not making things up compared to other smart computer talkers. Sometimes, those talkers say things that don’t make sense, and that’s what Tencent wants to avoid.

To make Hunyuan Aide so smart, Tencent trained it using a huge amount of information—more than two trillion pieces! They also gave it over 100 billion rules to follow when it talks to people. They’ll keep updating this chatbot with new info to make it even smarter.

Tencent is excited about this because its chatbot can understand Chinese really well, write in Chinese, and do tricky stuff with language. This kind of technology is pretty cool because it can help people get information and do things on the computer more easily.
Tencent is not the only one trying to make super-smart chatbots. Other big companies in China and the US are doing it too. They want to see who can make the smartest computer talker. And it looks like the competition is just getting high.
