Last year marked a significant milestone for artificial intelligence, with products like ChatGPT enabling millions of individuals to engage directly with AI on a daily basis, sparking discussions about its implications and effects.

In the realm of policymaking, there is a concerted effort to address the challenges posed by AI while maximizing its potential benefits. Looking ahead to the current year, our team conducted a global survey to anticipate the evolving landscape of AI regulations. The insights gleaned from our research are detailed here.

In China, a pivotal development to monitor in 2024 is the potential introduction of a comprehensive AI Act, akin to the European Union’s regulatory framework. The emergence of an “Artificial Intelligence Law” in China’s legislative agenda signifies a proactive stance towards regulating AI technologies.

Chinese authorities have demonstrated agility in responding to technological advancements, exemplified by the swift enactment of laws pertaining to generative AI shortly after the prominence of ChatGPT. The proposed comprehensive law could afford China greater authority in managing the impact of AI on existing systems.

To provide a comprehensive outlook on the anticipated changes in Chinese AI regulations for 2024, we consulted with experts in the field. Here are the key projections shared by these experts:

  1. The finalization of the Chinese “AI Law” is not expected to occur imminently. Unlike previous regulations targeting specific aspects of AI like deepfakes, this all-encompassing law necessitates meticulous drafting, suggesting that a finalized version may not materialize this year.

  2. The Chinese government is delineating guidelines for AI companies, outlining areas that require caution and explicit approval to operate. The introduction of a “negative list” aims to streamline regulatory compliance and prevent inadvertent violations.

  3. To ensure regulatory efficacy, there is a growing emphasis on third-party evaluation of AI models in China. Establishing a national platform for model assessment and facilitating regular reviews by independent organizations are potential measures under consideration.

  4. Addressing copyright concerns stemming from generative AI, China is expected to adopt a lenient approach towards AI companies. Policy clarifications and court decisions are anticipated to provide guidance on intellectual property issues, fostering a business-friendly environment.

As we navigate the evolving landscape of AI regulations in China, our team remains vigilant in monitoring these key areas throughout the year.
