Joining the generative artificial intelligence (AI) race is TikTok’s parent company ByteDance, which has unveiled a ChatGPT-like tool specifically designed for office workers.
The generative AI tool will be integrated into the popular enterprise collaboration platform Feishu.
Dubbed Feishu Intelligent Buddy, Feishu’s chatbot will leverage AI capabilities to seamlessly integrate into users’ daily workflow. With its ability to understand natural language and engage in contextual communication, the chatbot will serve as a versatile virtual assistant, capable of performing a wide range of tasks, from scheduling meetings and taking notes to summarizing documents and providing translations.
This chatbot is expected to improve productivity and facilitate communication within organizations. By automating routine tasks and providing real-time support, Feishu AI Assistant will free up employees’ time, allowing them to focus on more valuable initiatives, the company noted.
Customers can choose their preferred language model (LLM) for the Feishu assistant. Current options include models from MiniMax, the Tencent-backed unicorn, state-backed Zhipu AI, and Baichuan, a startup founded by Wang Xiaochuan, the creator of Sogou, notes NIX Solutions.
The company also said that some Chinese companies are already using Feishu Intelligent Buddy. These include Anker Innovations Technology, a renowned gadget manufacturer.
