Microsoft and ByTedance launched a joint AI project
Engineers from Microsoft and the Chinese company ByTedance announced cooperation as part of the Kuberay project. The software is designed to help companies more efficiently use AI applications, writes CNBC.
The project details were shared by the BYTEDANCE engineer Jiasin Shan and the Microsoft programmer Ali Chansoe at the Ray Summit event in San Francisco. They discussed their progress with experts and developers who are interested in creating applications using the open on Ray.
Jiasin and Channelo revealed the technical details of Kuberay and talked about the advantages of software for the design of AI applications operating on several computers at the same time.
“Jiasin and I have been working on an open source project https://gagarin.news/ for a year now […]. We are not in one company, but we meet every week, ”said ONSO.
According to experts, cooperation of technical gigants in the field of open software is ordinary practice. However, the case of Microsoft and ByTedance stands out against the background of increasing rivalry between the United States and China in the field of AI and intellectual property.
Earlier companies had experience in cooperation. In 2020, Microsoft wanted to purchase Tiktok from BYTEDANCE at a time when former US President Donald Trump threatened to ban the application for security reasons.
A year later, the general director of the Corporation Satya Ondalel called the unsuccessful deal “the most strange thing”, on which he had ever worked.
Recall that in August Oracle launched a check of algorithms and models of content content in Tiktok for manipulations from the Chinese authorities.
In July 2020, the Anonymous hacker group accused Tiktok of mass surveillance of users and data transfer to the PRC to the authorities.
