What is Tongyi Qianwen?

Tongyi Qianwen is an AI chatbot developed by China’s Alibaba group as a rival of Chatbot and Google Bard . Similar to ChatGPT, the Tongyi Qianwen is also a large language model trained by using a lot of machine learning parameters. Users can get the responses of their queries by entering a prompt in text form, either English or Chinese language.

Similar to ChatGPT, the Tongyi Qianwen also uses the data and knowledge of past to generate a response for your prompts.

The chatbot can perform multiple tasks such as providing business advice, e-commerce ideas, generation professional answer to interact with clients, summarizing books and chapters, writing emails, story telling, and many others.


How does Tongyi Qianwen compare to ChatGPT?

Tongyi Qianwen and ChatGPT both are two AI powered chatbots with similar functions. However, they are still different from each other. Tongyi Qianwen is mainly focused to answer the queries on business ideas and communication, shopping advices, and other general queries. Besides this, Tongyi Qianwen works better than ChatGPT in terms of Chinese communication skills.

ChatGPT, on another hand, is the all-rounder and leader of all AI based chatbots. You can use it to perform almost all type of tasks without any issue. Unlike, Tongyi Qianwen, ChatGPT has bigger and vast knowledge from questioning & answering to business advice, and book summarizing to email writing, ChatGPT has everything that users expect from an AI chat.


Final Thoughts

In the end, I would like to say that Tongyi Qianwen is a descent AI model of Alibaba, however, it is still inferior than ChatGPT and Google Bard in the number of factors.

This is because ChatGPT-4 is trained on trillions of machine learning parameters whereas Google Bard also has the access on the data of its websites, in addition to its own machine learning parameters.

However, the Tongyi Qianwen will also show good AI progress in near future. As American made softwares often face restrictions in China, Tongyi Qianwen would be a good alternative of ChatGPT and Google Bard for Chinese citizens. That’s all.
