TikTok works on a ‘chatbot’ that can answer questions and hold conversations with users of the application, according to Bloomberg
TikTok works in a chatbot who can answer questions and have conversations with users of the app, which is currently in internal testing.
Since the global expansion of ChatGPT, the chatbot that uses generative artificial intelligence (AI) technology developed by OpenAI, several technology companies have opted for this type of tool. Among them Google with Bard or Microsoft with Copilot.
the chinese platform TikTokowned by ByteDance, is also working on “new ways to power search and discovery” on the platform, as confirmed by a representative of the firm to Bloomberg.
Specifically, she is immersed in the preparation of Tako, an experimental ‘chatbot’ that “can answer questions and have conversations” with users, according to screenshots of the app recovered by Bloomberg.
This tool is only available to a small group of company employees, as as the Watchful analyst has stated -a company that tracks development tests- Daniel Buchuk.
This tool, which would only be available to users over the age of 18, collects all types of information entered by users and shares it with “external service providers” anonymous to provide answers to your questions.
- Despite the fact that Tako registers this information, Bloomberg reports that users can choose to delete their data, although initially they are informed not to offer personal data to the ‘chatbot’, much less trust this tool to obtain advice of any kind. . “Tako’s comments are generated by AI and may not be true or accurate,” the Watchful analyst noted.
Since the platform is still in the testing phase, TikTok wait that this solution allows you to obtain “increasingly accurate data to deliver personalized” and individualized content, with the aim of “revolutionizing the way people” use the platform.
