Cantonese AI chatbot

SenseChat, a chatbot powered by SenseNova 5.0, will have its Cantonese version rolled out on May 29 at SenseTime Group’s 10th anniversary of establishment.

Founded in Hong Kong in 2014, the AI company said the Cantonese version of SenseChat is customized for local residents and businesses so that they can enjoy generative AI models more conveniently. In April, SenseTime unveiled the fifth generation of the generative AI model SenseNova, which debuted last year.
