Chinese regulators to exercise more control over algorithms


Chinese regulators will exercise greater control over the algorithms used by Chinese technology firms to personaliz­e and recommend content, in the latest move in a regulation spree across the internet sector. China’s internet watchdog on Friday released a draft proposal of “algorithm recommenda­tion management regulation­s.” It aims to manage how technology companies use algorithms. The move expands the crackdown on the internet sector in China. Regulators are seeking to strengthen data privacy and curtail anticompet­itive practices, in order to curb the outsized influence of technology companies. The planned regulation­s could affect companies like ByteDance and Alibaba, which use algorithms to offer personaliz­ed services to users.
