Since then, rival companies have rushed to launch similar products, such as Google's Bard and Baidu Inc's Ernie Bot. On Monday, Chinese AI company SenseTime also revealed a chatbot called SenseChat along with a range of new AI products.
Stricter regulation on AI in China
Also on Tuesday, China's Cyberspace Administration (CAC) revealed draft measures for regulating generative AI services, as more companies like Alibaba introduce publicly available AI models.
The regulator wants companies to submit AI products for a "security assessment" before being released to the public.
The CAC said that while China supports innovation and the use of reliable software, the content generated by generative AI "must reflect core socialist values."
Under the draft law, providers of generative AI services must require users to submit their real identities and must take measures to prevent discrimination when designing algorithms and training data.
The public can comment on the new proposal until May 10th, with the new regulations expected to come into force later this year.
Although ChatGPT is unavailable in China, its popularity has been rising as users take advantage of virtual private networks to get around the ban.
