Create Your Own Chatbots with ByteDance's New Platform

ByteDance Enters Chatbot Game!

ByteDance, the genius minds behind TikTok, are stepping into the chatbot arena. They're cooking up a platform that lets regular folks like you and me create our very own chatbots. It's a bit like what OpenAI does with those smart GPT things.

What's Cooking?

An internal memo spilled the beans, revealing ByteDance's plan to launch the "bot development platform" by the end of this month. But that's not all – they're also working on a text-to-image generator, similar to Midjourney. The goal? To seamlessly blend these new AI wonders with their existing lineup.

OpenAI's Update

Hold on! OpenAI had plans for a custom GPT store, but they hit the brakes until 2024. Why? They're fine-tuning their GPTs based on what customers are saying. This all went down when Sam Altman returned as the CEO after a surprising firing.

China's AI Party

ByteDance isn't the only one having fun with AI in China. Alibaba, Tencent, Huawei, Baidu, and 01.AI are also in the game, creating their own models. Even the open source AI gang is growing in China, with models like DeepSeek and Qwen available on GitHub and Hugging Face.

No Entry for OpenAI and Google
