AsiaIndustrial NetNews: In the 1990s, “The New Yorker” once had a slang famous all over the world: On the internet, no one knows you are a dog. Now it seems that this sentence is the most vivid metaphor for Internet technology.Last year’s man-machine war has already made people see the excellence of technology, while chattingrobotThe rise of the Internet may really confirm the saying in The New Yorker that no one on the Internet knows you are a dog.
A few days ago, Tencent introduced chatbots into the QQ group application, which means that chatting with you in the QQ group in the future will not be a human, but a chatting robot, and possibly a dog.
Humans and Robots PK again
If the human-robot war is the maiden flight of the human-robot intelligence contest, then the chatbot camping in the Tencent QQ group is another PK between human and robot. In contrast, the PK caused by chatbots is more intense.
It is reported that this time Tencent has introduced two chatbots in the QQ group, one is BabyQ and the other is Xiaoice. A few years ago, Xiaoice entered WeChat and was eventually blocked by Tencent. Right now, Tencent uses chatbots as the official application of the QQ group, with very obvious intentions, in order to provide users with a better experience.
After actually experiencing the QQ group chat robot, you will find that BabyQ and Xiaobing are comparable in terms of dialogue effects, there are differences in some details, and their styles are very distinct. More appropriately, BabyQ and Xiaobing are like two people with different temperaments. It is not difficult to predict that with the full application of chatbots in QQ, the upgrade of BabyQ and Xiaoice will be accelerated, and the differences between the two will be more distinct.
Specifically, BabyQ’s dialogue style is more practical and slightly rigorous, and can provide practical functions such as express inquiries and weather inquiries. Xiaoice’s dialogue style is more sarcastic and more entertaining. In the process of communicating with people, the change of tone of Turing robot BabyQ is a highlight. In some scenes, BabyQ even has different tones of anger and joy. In contrast, Xiaoice has no emotional tone changes.
After people were full of strong curiosity about the human-machine war, Tencent introduced chatbots to QQ, a high-frequency application, which was an exploration and a successful attempt. While group chatbots increase the playability of QQ, they may also trigger an Internet revolution.
The revolution in the era of Internet artificial intelligence
Human-machine wars and chatbots can be said to be a prototype of artificial intelligence. From the initial ban on Xiaoice to the introduction of chatbots in the QQ group, behind the 180-degree change in Tencent’s attitude is an attempt after the lack of innovation. The news from Turing Robot said that BabyQ is a chat and conversation service provided by Turing Robot.
Although Xiaoice has not disclosed relevant data, the effect will not be too bad. Compared with the traffic growth of the two companies, the growth of Tencent QQ is higher. Objectively speaking, Tencent’s introduction of chatbots in QQ is a successful attempt. In fact, more than a year ago, a large number of third-party chatbots have appeared in the QQ group. These third-party chatbots have relatively simple functions and can only provide group check-in, constellation interpretation and some simple dialogue functions. Compared with BabyQ and XiaoIce, these third-party chatbots are a bit of a child.
For Tencent, the introduction of third-party robots into the QQ group has increased the activity of the group and gave birth to some new ways of playing the QQ group. Because of this, Tencent will launch a group chat bot in an official capacity. It is not difficult to predict that after the success of the QQ group chat robot, Tencent will introduce robots into more applications, which will lead to an artificial intelligence revolution in the Internet industry.
In fact, before Tencent introduced group chat robots, e-commerce platforms such as JD.com and Alibaba had already introduced robot customer service into their customer service systems. Compared with QQ group chats, e-commerce platforms have higher requirements for robot customer service. After all, QQ groups have stronger entertainment attributes. Feedback from users said that BabyQ and Xiaoice have created a richer entertainment scene for the QQ group and provided users with a better experience.
With the improvement and upgrading of group chat robots and the application of group chat robots in QQ and customer service and other fields, artificial intelligence is bound to detonate another revolution in the Internet. The breakthrough of this revolution is precisely the chatbot that can give people the most appropriate perception.
The revolution starts with chatbots
Rising to the height of the industry, BabyQ and Xiaoice’s entry into Tencent QQ is essentially an industry change triggered by artificial intelligence. To be precise, the emergence of chatbots has subverted the traditional communication method of instant messaging, giving netizens a new experience.
However, the new chatbot, like AlphaGo, still faces many challenges in the development process, which will be a stumbling block for the Internet artificial intelligence revolution. In fact, chatbots are nothing new. Similar applications existed as early as ten years ago. Why has the applications represented by BabyQ and Xiaoice overturned the traditional way of communication more than ten years later? The maturity of technology is the backbone driving this change. As we all know, the chatbot that Microsoft launched on the MSN client a few years ago often had errors in recognition, which seriously affected the user experience.
Right now, whether it is BabyQ or Xiaoice, the recognition rate is not a problem, and richer application scenarios will be the key factor for whether chatbots can lead the AI revolution. It is undeniable that in terms of application scenarios, BabyQ is richer. It can not only provide functions such as express inquiries and weather inquiries, but also have certain learning functions. In the QQ group, BabyQ can even imitate the conversations of some people, but through various tests, it is found that the Turing robot BabyQ has no thinking ability like AlphaGo. Xiaoice doesn’t even have the ability to learn languages.
From a technical point of view, to achieve richer scenarios, the support of big data is needed, and the two chatbots have their own characteristics in the accumulation of big data. Xiaoice’s big data comes from Microsoft’s operating system and various applications; BabyQ comes from the Turing robot with a corpus of hundreds of billions, and the data comes from the wormhole voice assistant released in 2012. Frankly speaking, the two companies’ existing voice data is not rich. Undoubtedly, there are still many challenges for chatbots to detonate the Internet artificial intelligence industry revolution.
In the man-machine war, AlphaGo defeated humans for the first time, which is a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence. Right now, chatbots have entered the most popular application of Tencent QQ, which will surely trigger a PK of human-robot dialogue. According to this trend, after the human-machine war, while chatbots trigger human-machine PK, an artificial intelligence revolution has quietly kicked off. At that time, robots with thinking will no longer be the scene of science fiction films.
