Alibaba Chairman Explains Why Group Is Fully Embracing AI

In a world where technology is rapidly transforming how we live and work, many organizations are focusing on artificial intelligence (AI) as a key to transforming business operations and staying competitive. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA) is embracing AI and encouraging other businesses to follow suit.

Joseph Tsai, Alibaba executive vice chair and cofounder, who recently replaced Daniel Zhang, spearheads the need for AI. In a press conference, Tsai shared the company’s robust strategy to integrate AI into all facets of the company’s operations.

According to Tsai, the China tech giant is focused on becoming more aggressive in developing open-source software after the success of NLP applications called the Tongyi Qianwen AI model. The model, with hundreds of billions of parameters, focuses on providing a comprehensive and efficient way to understand and respond to users’ questions in natural language.

Tsai predicted that AI would significantly impact the world in the coming years. He envisions everyone having access to a personalized smart assistant and every home having a smart family doctor.

Another area where Alibaba is deploying AI is customer services. The company’s AI cloud chatbot, Chatbot Services, is designed to help customers navigate the vast e-commerce platforms and services. The personalized visual assistance enhances customer satisfaction and encourages repeat business.

Alibaba’s Taobao and Tmall have long been China’s biggest e-commerce platforms. These platforms leverage cutting-edge technology to amplify user experience and streamline operations. The company envisions a world where technology meets and anticipates customer needs, thus making shopping more intuitive and efficient.

Furthermore, AI is used to streamline operations within Alibaba’s different divisions. For example, the e-commerce giant’s AI-powered supply-chain management system is crucial in optimizing logistics and inventory management. This helps cut costs and improve delivery times. While this is a big boost for the company, customers are also reaping big as they can expect faster and more reliable delivery of their purchases.

Through robust logistics and supply-chain management, Alibaba envisions a world where small and upcoming European businesses can effortlessly sell products to southeast Asian customers. This will open new markets, boost brand experiences and make global shopping seamless.

Alibaba plans to reinforce strategic-investment moves in technology-driven internet platforms, AI-driven businesses and international commerce networks. By doing these, the company envisions a world where AI enhances every aspect of our lives, drives innovation and efficiency, and makes global commerce borderless.
