Business giants are entering the artificial intelligence (AI) race, with recent reports indicating that Twitter and Alibaba are incorporating the technology into their operations. While Alibaba is developing its own chatbot assistant called Tongyi Qianwen, Twitter is using AI to identify and highlight public opinion manipulation. This move comes after Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who has previously expressed concerns about AI’s societal impact, reportedly purchased nearly 10,000 graphics processing units (GPUs) to enhance Twitter’s AI infrastructure.
Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange, has secured a $100 million personal loan from its founders, the Winklevoss twins, after previous attempts to raise capital from external investors failed. MetaMask, a cryptocurrency wallet and browser extension, has launched a feature that allows users to purchase crypto with fiat currency through various payment methods. Alibaba’s chatbot assistant will be integrated with the company’s other tech businesses, including the Tmall Genie smart speaker and DingTalk workplace messaging app.
