I understand you made a deal or at least an agreement with Japan on OpenAI, for the ChatGPT models. These models can speak Japanese just fine, but whether they recognize the Japanese culture or not is another matter altogether. And so I think this kind of cultural tuning, cultural consciousness awareness is on everybody’s mind and in Taiwan it’s even more than that because we’ve got the Taiwanese Taigi which is not Mandarin, we’ve got Holo, we’ve got 16 indigenous nations and 42 language variations and sign language and these are all national languages and so especially with Taigi, with Taiwanese Holo, which most of the elderly people speak more natively than Mandarin, currently if you talk to any of the OpenAI models, it will insist it’s speaking Taiwanese, but actually Cantonese. So it’s likely very minor in the pre-trained model.
