ByteDance official announcement: Large-scale contraction of game business, retaining some innovative game exploration

According to Sina Technology, ByteDance officially announced that its gaming business will undergo large-scale business contraction——

For games that have been launched and are performing well, we will seek to divest them while ensuring operations; for projects that have not yet been launched, except for a small number of innovative projects and related technology projects, they will be shut down.

Zhaoxi Guangnian stated that there will indeed be business direction and organizational adjustments, and it will focus more on the exploration of some innovative games and related technologies. But at the same time, we will also do a good job in the continuous operation of already launched products to fully protect the rights and interests of players.

Founded in 2019, Zhaoxiguangnian is the game R&D and publishing business brand of ByteDance. Similar to ByteDance’s emphasis on globalization, Chaoxi Guangnian also attaches great importance to globalization.

Its overseas releases of "RO Ragnarok: The Birth of a New Generation" and the Marvel IP card mobile game "MARVEL SNAP" have achieved certain success. In the domestic market, "Crystal Core" launched by Zhaoxiguangnian in July this year is considered to be the first "hit" of Zhaoxiguangnian's self-developed game.

People close to ByteDance revealed that the decision was discussed repeatedly for a long time by business leader Yan Shuo and ByteDance CEO Liang Rubo.

Liang Rubo believes that although the game business has achieved certain results, Byte Games has pursued "big and comprehensive" in the past few years, with unfocused projects and scattered resources. It should invest energy and resources into more basic, innovative and imaginative things. project.

 ChatGPT gives better advice than professionals, study finds

A new study recently published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology shows that the latest version of ChatGPT can provide better advice than professional columnists, PsyPost reports.

Providing personal advice requires demonstrating a level of empathy. The latest version of the chatbot based on GPT-4 allows users to request multiple answers to the same question and then choose the answer they prefer.

This feedback allows the model to gradually develop responses appropriate to social situations and helps it appear more empathetic.

The researchers asked each of 400 participants a social dilemma question, along with responses from ChatGPT and professional columnists, without revealing the source of each response.

Results showed that about three-quarters of participants believed ChatGPT's advice was more balanced, complete, empathetic, helpful, and overall more effective than that of a professional.

The researchers say this is not a suggestion that ChatGPT should replace professional counselors or therapists, not just because the chatbot itself will warn about this, but also because chatbots have given potentially dangerous advice in the past.

Still, the findings suggest that, as long as some of the problems are solved, properly designed chatbots might one day be used to assist therapy and provide columnists with suggestions for improvements.
