Kazakhstan develops ChatGPT analog

Kazakhstan is developing its own version of ChatGPT operating in the state language. It is intended to be used in the work of the electronic government portal. By interacting with government services through digital communication, the neural network will allow processing of citizens’ documents round the clock and receiving data on all relevant issues. According to the authors, the project aims to integrate Kazakhstan into the field of artificial intelligence using its own digital solution.

“We are faced with the strategic task of developing domestic generative systems, such as ChatGPT. At the same time, 80 percent of Kazakhstan’s population speaks Kazakh. Generative AI, an LLM-based Kazakh chat, will expand these capabilities and reduce the current barrier in describing many works, books, government services and economic sectors. On the one hand, we can digitize all the books in the world, including 130 million unique ones in the country. On the other hand, reading all the materials and making an instant translation will require large expenditures. Generative systems will enable, firstly, to create summaries with descriptions of books by world authors and secondly, to reduce the barrier to communication between people,” said Rustem Bigari, CEO of the Digital Government Support Center.

Kazakhstan’s version of ChatGPT can become not only a remarkable achievement in technology but also a means of promoting and preserving the Kazakh language in the modern digital world, experts note.

“I believe that the Kazakh LLM will be integrated into the global system of language models in the future. We know that alternatives to Yandex, Google, and ChatGPT have minor flaws that need to be corrected. Thus, creating a Kazakh model will improve the accuracy and results of work in the Kazakh language. In addition, it will foster fruitful collaboration between Kazakhstan and global partners working in the field of artificial intelligence,” Bigari added.
