AI to govern social responsibility in China

China has continued its upsurge of using artificial intelligence despite the West’s surveillance and claims of breaching personal privacy. In its argument, China’s central government maintained it was adopting AI in order to manage a country of 1.4 billion people efficiently.

With AI, it could gather an expansive data which could help in solving social problems, in addition to resolving petty crimes, in healthcare and in education services. Furthermore, AI is also expected to create higher and more technology driven jobs in the country.

According to policy expert, Xue Lan, AI also helps to some degree with the country’s demographics and geography.

“Yes, facial recognition may infringe on personal privacy to a certain degree, but it also brings a collective benefit, so it is a question of how to balance individual and societal benefits,” Xue, who is also the dean of the Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University.

Reports suggest, the AI governance in China is aiming towards working on the theme of “Developing Responsible AI” which will focus on promoting AI technology in research and its application in various industry associations.

“China is such a big country experiencing a giant transformation, there are great challenges to maintain social stability and protect people’s property and lives,” commented Xue on the central government’s 13th Five-Year plan which aimed at technology, innovation and science.

Moreover, with the current tech stand-off and trade deadlock with the US, China appears as a threat in science and technology from AI to the 5G telecommunication services which sends data.

However for China where a substantial number of its population still lives in rural areas, the application of AI will help in reducing millions of lower-value jobs that could be replaced with smart machines.
