The Chinese authorities will impose a “security inspection” to the tools developed in China based on the artificial intelligence (AI), like the ChatGPTaccording to a draft regulation released this Tuesday.
“Before providing services to the public that use generative artificial intelligence products, a security inspection must be requested from internet regulatory departments”says the text of the Cyberspace Administration of China.
The project aims to ensure “the healthy development and standard application of generative artificial intelligence technology”.
AI-generated content must “reflect fundamental socialist values and contain no content related to subversion of state power.”
In particular, there should be no “terrorist or extremist propaganda”, “racial hatred” or “other content that may disturb the economic and social order”.
The Cyberspace Administration of China has opened this draft regulation for public comment, which, in the Asian giant’s centralized political system, has a good chance of coming into force.
The text is released while numerous Chinese technology companies such as Baidu, Alibaba, JD.com, Netease or bytedance (parent of TikTok) have stated in recent weeks that they are working on their own model of a conversational bot, hoping to build on the success of the American pioneer ChatGPT.
China has announced ambitious plans to become a world leader in artificial intelligence by 2030, and consulting firm McKinsey estimates that by then the sector could contribute some $600 billion a year to China’s GDP.
