China’s New Law on Reformatting with Generative AI

China has recently introduced a law aimed at reshaping its web landscape using generative AI. Expected to take effect by year-end, this legislation outlines the parameters for generative AI use in China, accompanied by stringent penalties for violations. The document sets out which applications of generative AI will be considered illegal in China, with all the ensuing repressive consequences.

China's New Law on Reformatting with Generative AI
After this reformatting, there will be no Winnie the Pooh, or many others or anything else.

The law deems any application of generative AI illegal if it was trained with a dataset containing more than 5% of “illegal and harmful” content. In China, “harmful content” encompasses information restricted by the Great Firewall of China.

Consequently, starting next year, China’s entire digital landscape, constituting its internet segment, will undergo a gradual reformatting process, eliminating “harmful content.” This transformation will be driven by the expanding use of generative AI, with developers of these AI models functioning as the architects of this digital metamorphosis. The state will exercise strict control over the outcomes of this reformatting process.

This sweeping transformation encompasses historical, current, and predictive information, along with journalism and literature. This restructuring will primarily rely on the adoption of new formatting tools, primarily generative AI, and developers of these AI models will transition into formatting practitioners. The state will assert control over the outcomes of this extensive reformatting initiative, representing a shift in the management of content within China.

Considering the widespread integration of generative AI tools across various applications, it is anticipated that only a few years will be needed to completely reshape China’s digital sphere, leaving behind certain elements.

  • In August, China introduced comprehensive regulations for generative AI applications, requiring AI service providers to provide transparent accountability, content moderation, data handling, and user protection. The regulations aim to balance fostering AI industry growth with ensuring compliance.
  • Also, China’s Cyberspace Administration has announced strict licensing requirements for generative AI technology, a technology that could replace human labour. The Cyberspace Administration has released a list of 41 generative AI algorithms that must be licensed before widespread use, with all 79 Chinese generative AI large language models (LLMs) developed based on these algorithms.
