China's Latest AI Chatbot Trained On Xi Jinping’s Political Ideology

China's latest artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot is trained on President Xi Jinping's doctrine, in a stark reminder of the ideological parameters by which Chinese AI models should abide, the Associated Press (AP) reported.


Xi Jinping Thought was the seventh database that the chatbot was trained on, according to a WeChat messaging service post by CAC's magazine about the AI model.



China's cyberspace academy earlier this week announced the chatbot trained on Xi Jinping Thought, a doctrine that promotes "socialism with Chinese characteristics."


 The chatbot was trained on seven databases, six of which were mostly related to information technologies provided by China's internet watchdog, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).



The chatbot was created primarily to demonstrate the development and practical applications in cybersecurity and IT research, according to the China Institute of Cybersecurity Affairs, which had launched the AI model for internal use, Mainichi Japan also reported.


Xi Jinping Thought was the seventh database that the chatbot was trained on, according to a WeChat messaging service post by CAC's magazine about the AI model.



The Xi-trained large language model is the latest effort by authorities to spread the Chinese leader's ideology and ideas.


Students have had to take classes on Xi Jinping Thought in schools, and an app called Study Xi Strong Nation was also rolled out in 2019 to allow users to learn and take quizzes about his ideologies.



Xi Jinping Thought -- also known as "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era" -- is made up of 14 principles, including ensuring the absolute power of the Chinese Communist Party, strengthening national security and socialist values, as well as improving people's livelihoods and well-being.
