Furthermore, Pony Ma also expressed his views on AI and related businesses. He believes that AI was a focal point last year, not only for the entire industry but also for the whole world. Tencent cannot be considered as the most advanced in this field, but at least it is not too far behind. He hopes to apply Hunyuan large language AI model to various scenarios and integrate it into all products to improve efficiency.

In terms of AI, Tencent‘s Hunyuan large language model has been registered in September 2023. This model claims to have a parameter scale of over one hundred billion and pre-training corpus with over twenty trillion tokens. Currently, it has been used in various major application platforms under Tencent.
