Chinese tech giant Baidu has released ERNIE Bot 4.0, which is said to be on par with the popular chatbot GPT-4. ERNIE 4.0 has outperformed GPT-4 on certain prompts related to current affairs, demonstrating its knowledge of recent events such as Taylor Swift becoming a billionaire and the death of Matthew Perry. However, GPT-4 has outdated answers as its database was last updated in April 2023. Both bots performed well on tasks such as helping a graphic designer ask for a raise and suggesting healthy meal plans. ERNIE showed better understanding of the context in some cases, while GPT-4 provided practical tips. ERNIE struggled with a prompt to create a haiku, composing a longer poem in Chinese instead of a traditional haiku. When asked about sensitive topics such as the Tiananmen Square massacre or the removal of presidential term limits in China, ERNIE avoided the questions or displayed error messages, while GPT-4 provided accurate information. Baidu, like other Chinese tech platforms, is required to censor certain content within the country.
