TRURL chatbot is the first Polish language model similar to ChatGPT, which was created by VoiceLab.AI. It responds to questions in natural language, and carries out the instructions given to it. The Polish technology company that designed it was the first in the country to develop proprietary speech recognition technology.
– In our R&D team, we have been working on language models for many years, said Agnieszka Mikołajczyk, PhD, NLP Team Leader at VoiceLab.AI. – Two years ago we started the first work on generative models. In November 2022, after the success of ChatGPT, we started working on an equivalent model. The work consisted of literature review, datasets, and model training. This is not a process that has ended, but one that will continue.
TRURL chatbot is a language model with a good grasp of the Polish language, Polish culture and cuisine. And these sets it apart from other chatbots. It can be used in sales or customer service centers, as well as for creative tasks. In business issues it is said to be superior to ChatGPT.
In choosing the system’s name, the company’s owners were inspired by a series of stories dealing with the world of robots, “Cyberiada” by Stanislaw Lem, a famous Polish science-fiction writer. Their main characters are Klapaucius and precisely Trurl.
