Recent Trends in China's Large Language Model Landscape

As large-scale pre-trained AI models gain popularity in the West, many Chinese AI labs have developed their own models capable of generating coherent text and realistic images and videos.These models represent the frontier of AI research and have significant implications for AI ethics and governance in China. Yet, to the best of our knowledge, there has been no in-depth English-language analysis of such models. Studying a sample of 26 large-scale pre-trained AI models developed in China, our review describes their general capabilities and highlights the role of collaboration between the government, industry, and academia in supporting these projects. It also sheds light on Chinese discussions related to techno-nationalism, AI governance, and ethics.
