  1. No benchmarks have yet been released which shows Ernie 4.0 outperforming GPT-4. Perhaps it is better, but performance on established benchmarks or other 3rd party verifiable metrics is all that matters.

  2. Yet here we are, with coups in OpenAI caused by decels wanting to slow things down, and wondering if we should strive forward with this kind of risky maths.

    Jeez, China will run circles around the West if such foolishness persists.
