Media covering backlash in China against AI, facial recognition after success, data privacy concerns – raised by deepfake app Zao.


AS a result of the app, which has gone viral since its debut a week ago, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a statement saying it’s now crucial to better assess such new technologies and guard against network fraud and other dangers.

In addition, Ziyang Fan, the head of digital trade at the World Economic Forum, said the backlash demonstrates how “the concept of data privacy is gaining ground in China” while “increasingly users are less willing to trade privacy for convenience or entertainment.”

The Beijing News, a city newspaper, recently wrote that AI is here now and is “not only a test for technological development, but a test for governance.”
