Given the current trend across the globe, it’s no surprise that TikTok is testing an AI chatbot. Tako may or may not see the light of day.
Tako’s main aim is to help users find useful content on the app. It is an AI-powered tool to help with search and discovery on TikTok.
However, it is also designed to answer user questions in a conversational mode. For example, when users watch a video on an event like “Independence Day”. They may query the chatbot to give more context on the event.
The chatbot is powered by a third-party chat assistant. As of now, TikTok has not stated what AI model the chatbot is running on.
In addition, the chatbot is largely in its testing phase. Nevertheless, the company has already submitted a trademark application for “Tako”. Clearly, this is an indication the company is focused on developing its AI.
