Chinese technology company Alibaba It is alleged Looking for companies to test our new Tongyi Qianwen AI chatbot. Alibaba has reached out to testers through WeChat, and a source with knowledge of the matter confirmed to Reuters that the chatbot is aimed at businesses rather than the general public.
According to South China Morning Post, corporate testers can access the chatbot through Alibaba Cloud’s official WeChat account. People who want to test the bot can leave their phone number and email address on the Spartan website, according to Reuters.
Right now, details about the bot’s capabilities are a little thin on the ground, but Alibaba Cloud will hold an event next Tuesday where the bot is expected to officially launch.
