Baidu President Robin Li did not demonstrate Wenxin Yiyan’s ability live at the press conference, but aired several pre-recorded demonstration clips. In addition, Wenxin Yiyan is still closed to the public, and only a select number of users are allowed to test from the 16th.
Chat robot released at the beginning of the year by American artificial intelligence studio OpenAIchatgptAttracting global attention, Baidu announced on February 7 that it would soon release a similar robot it had developed. The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Baidu had invested hundreds of employees in Wenxinyiyan to ensure the product could be showcased at a March 16 press conference. Staff and resources from other departments are also temporarily borrowed for the development and use of Wenxinyiyan.
At the press conference, Li Yanhong proudly said that Baidu is the first company among the world’s major technology companies to release a company like ChatGPT, ahead of Amazon, Google, Facebook’s parent company Meta, etc. But seeing the reaction of the public, the press conference did not give a satisfactory answer.
According to reports, Li Yanhong performed Wenxin Yiyan’s tasks in explaining Chinese words, writing business copywriting, calculating mathematical formulas, and making short films, but none of them were completed on the spot from start to finish. Not done. Robin Lee simply followed the narration of the film, and sometimes the progress of the film exceeded Robin Lee’s narration. As a result, the performance sometimes began before Robin Lee had even given directions.
A technology blogger on Weibo pointed out, “Wenxin Yiyan is actually a recorded video rather than a live performance. It seems that Baidu is not confident enough. Confident, this recorded video simply clicks and goes through the motions.” Which is boring.”
Some netizens scoffed: “The performance was faltering in front, and Mr. Li’s speech was smooth when he talked about business value later,” “I have to run away, only the market and money in my eyes I’m in.”
