Alibaba Prepares to Become Public With Strong AI Model

Alibaba Launches AI Model That Can Understand Images and Have More Complex Conversations

Alibaba launched on Friday two new artificial intelligence models — Qwen-VL and Qwen-VL-Chat — the company says can understand images and carry out more complex conversations. One example Alibaba gave is a hospital sign. Qwen-VL-Chat is able to answer questions about which floor of the building certain hospital departments are on by interpreting an image of the sign. This AI push comes from Alibaba’s cloud division which is looking to reignite growth as it prepares to go public.
