China Mandates Security Reviews For AI Services Like ChatGPT

China's government has announced that’ it will require a security review of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI ) services before they’re allowed to operate, meaning that there is now uncertainty over ChatGPT comparable bots from the country’s largest tech companies. 

This comes at the same time as the Chinese technology giant Alibaba has announced plans to introduce its own (AI) ChatGPT-style product called Tongyi Qianwen. Its cloud computing unit says it will integrate the chatbot across Alibaba's businesses in the "near future" but did not give details on its timeline.

Companies from Alibaba Group to SenseTime and Baidu all aim to build the definitive next-generation AI platform for the world's largest Internet market. 

This regulation has been issued following publication of a report from the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) that says that providers of services must ensure content is accurate and respects intellectual property and neither discriminates nor endangers security and the AI operators must also clearly label AI-generated content. 

Providers of services must ensure content is accurate and respects intellectual property, and neither discriminates nor endangers security, the Cyberspace Administration of China said in draft guidelines seeking public feedback. 
AI operators must also clearly label AI-generated content, the country’s Internet overseer said in a statement posted on its website.

This reflects a growing wave of development abroad with Alphabet’s Google and Microsoft among the many tech companies exploring generative AI, which can create original content from poetry to art just with simple user prompts. The CAC's requirements add to Beijing's growing attempts to regulate the explosive growth of generative AI since OpenAI's ChatGPT first enthused the technology industry over the past few months.

That mirrors a growing wave of development abroad with Alphabet's Google and Microsoft among the many tech companies exploring generative AI, which can create original content from poetry to art just with simple user prompts. 

China has prioritsied the development of AI at a time when the country is locked in a conflict with the US over technology from chips to EVs. But it remains uncertain how the government intends to both galvanise and police the emergent field.
