Chinese word processor WPS, owned by software developer Kingsoft Office, introduced its AI assistant WPS AI on Thursday at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. Both individual users and corporate entities have the opportunity to apply for testing of the new product. Kingsoft’s CEO highlighted that this launch represents the first public implementation of AI in the domestic office software sector. Kingsoft’s office suite, which includes word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software, now relies on various Chinese large language models, such as Baidu’s ERNIE and startup MiniMax’s AI model to run certain features. The AI-powered tool is capable of summarizing lengthy articles and even generating slides automatically based on given prompts, according to the official announcement. [WPS, in Chinese]
