ChatGPT rival GigaChat Launched 2023

On Monday, Russian lender Sberbank (SBER.MM) announced the launch of GigaChat, an artificial intelligence chatbot that competes with ChatGPT.

Last year’s debut of OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot, supported by Microsoft (MSFT.O), sparked a tech industry rush to bring AI to more consumers. The goal is to change how individuals work and win business.

GigaChat’s Russian language intelligence set it different, according to Sberbank.

As Western nations have cut exports to Russia and implemented punishing sanctions over Moscow’s activities in Ukraine, Russia’s largest bank has invested considerably in technology to minimize the country’s dependency on imports.
