On September 7, Chinese tech giant Tencent officially launched its Hunyuan large language model at the company’s Global Digital Ecosystem Summit. The move comes several months after fellow Chinese tech giants Alibaba and Baidu launched their own AI products. Dowson Tong, the firm’s senior executive vice president, said the full stack self-developed Hunyuan LLM with over a hundred billion parameters is trained with 2 trillion tokens of pre-training data. It possesses strong capabilities in Chinese language comprehension, content creation, logical reasoning, and task execution, he said. In the future, the Hunyuan model will support Tencent Cloud’s MaaS products, with customers able to directly access it through APIs and use it as a foundational model to develop applications for various industry scenarios, Tencent said.
