The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) warned that advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), could pose serious challenges to governance, regulation, and the labor market in China.
CAC’s latest annual report addresses various ethical issues, including privacy leaks and abuses of technology, which can be caused by AI, Web3, quantum computing, and advanced technologies. others have emerged in recent years
Generating AIs are algorithms, such as ChatGPT, that can be used to create new content, including audio, images, text, and video. Immediately after ChatGPT launched in November last year, generative AI took the world by storm and spurred several major Chinese tech companies, such as Baidu and Alibaba Group Holding, to launch their own chatbots.
Web3 is considered the third generation of the internet, this decentralized web system is expected to be built on the blockchain platform, allowing users to control the data related to their personal identity
Quantum computing uses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems that are too complex for traditional computers. But technical challenges in the field have led some scientists to believe that it is still years or decades away from perfecting a true quantum computer.
According to SCMP, the Chinese government is still concerned about the potential risks posed by these technologies and this shows that China intends to seize the opportunities that come from such advanced technologies.
Last month’s quarterly meeting of the Chinese Politburo concluded that China must create an innovation ecosystem, but at the same time must take into account hedging.
In April, the CAC published a draft governing AI services such as ChatGPT. According to the new draft, companies providing artificial intelligence services in China take measures to prevent discriminatory content, misinformation, and content that harms personal or financial privacy. intellectual property. Businesses must not create content that is disparaging, violent, or sexually explicit, which is economically or socially destructive, the CAC noted. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in service providers facing fines, suspension of operations, or investigation
