Tech giant Tencent has assembled a project team to develop a ChatGPT-like tool called HunyuanAide, led by the firm’s chief scientist Zhang Zhengyou, according to a Monday report by Chinese media outlet 36Kr. Zhang specializes in computer science and has led Tencent’s AI Lab and Robotics X units since joining the company in 2018. The newly formed team is cross-departmental and includes executives from Tencent’s cloud, video game, and WeChat units. According to the report, the chatbot tool will be empowered by the Shenzhen-based company’s large data model Hunyuan, which has previously been used for advertising placement and targeting.
