China is planning to introduce rules for generative AI, aiming to strike a balance between encouraging local companies to develop the technology and maintaining content control.

The Cyberspace Administration of China is working on a licensing system that will require companies to obtain a license before releasing generative AI systems.

The new regulations tighten the previous draft regulations issued in April, reducing the time frame for registration with Chinese authorities after launch.

Beijing faces a challenge reconciling its ambition to develop cutting-edge technologies with its censorship regime.
