“So we can easily teach them (businesses), package it and provide them with the platform so they can fully utilize it for their business,” Mikitani said.

Japanese companies have lagged somewhat behind their American and Chinese counterparts. But they are trying to catch up quickly.

Telecommunications group NTT announced this month that its proprietary LLM will be available in March.

SoftBank’s telecommunications arm announced in November that its generative AI computing platform is operational.

Japanese companies have the opportunity to create LLMs specific to the Japanese language, potentially giving them an edge over their American and Chinese competitors.
