China appears to have shut down the availability of ChatGPT, developed by American company OpenAI, as Chinese tech companies try to develop their own equivalent. Many Chinese companies saw their shares drop as the news spread.

  • As Alibaba and Baidu roll out their AI chatbots, the playing field will only grow and the race will continue to heat up. Baidu announced a March roll out for its chatbot.
