There is little news about Jack Ma, the former director of Ali Group, but the technical R&D team of Ant Group is working on its language and big multimodal model, which is internally named “Zhen Yi”.
A multimodal macro model is a model that combines text, image, video, audio and other multimodal information for training. Previously, OpenAI co-founder Ilya Sutskever said, “The long-term goal of artificial intelligence is to build multimodal neural networks, where AI can learn concepts between different modalities to understand the world better.
On June 19, a new team led by Zhu Jun, a professor at Tsinghua University’s Department of Computer Science and vice president of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence, completed a nearly 100 million angel round of funding led by Ant Group.
At the 2023 Alibaba Luohan Tang Digital Economy Annual Conference held today. Zhang Yong, chairman and CEO of Alibaba Group and Aliyun Intelligence Group, talked with three Nobel Prize winners. When discussing the future of artificial intelligence, Zhang Yong pointed out that “artificial intelligence will be everywhere, but I believe that humans have more wisdom than machines and can certainly find a mode to live in harmony with artificial intelligence and with machines. “
