Citing sources close to regulators, the Financial Times reported that the Cyberspace Administration of China intends to establish a system requiring companies to obtain a license before releasing generative AI systems.

This move by the Chinese government is seen as an effort to regulate and control the development and deployment of AI technologies in the country. The licensing system will ensure that companies meet certain standards and adhere to regulations before releasing generative AI systems. The Chinese government has been increasingly focused on AI regulation and has previously implemented measures to control data and content on the internet.
