**Title:** China’s Cyberspace Administration Cracks Down on ai-Generated Fake News: 107,000 Accounts Shut Down

**H2:** China’s War Against ai-Powered Fake News

China’s Cyberspace Administration (CAC) has launched a campaign to combat the spread of fake news generated by artificial intelligence (ai). This crackdown particularly targets news providers, including short video platforms and popular search lists.

**H2:** Manipulative Practices Identified

The CAC has outlined manipulative practices such as:

– Use of ai virtual anchors
– Forged studio scenes
– Fake news accounts mimicking legitimate ones
– Manipulation of news to create misleading storylines

These tactics are employed to generate clickbait and spread false information.

**H2:** Action Taken Against Counterfeit Accounts and False Information

The CAC has already taken down 835,000 pieces of false information and shut down 107,000 counterfeit news accounts and fake anchors. The internet regulator urges citizens to report any encounters with such accounts contact.

**H2:** Recent Detainment in Gansu Province

In line with China’s ai media law, an individual was recently detained in the Gansu province for creating fake news using ChatGPT. This person fabricated a news article about a train crash, which quickly spread on social media platforms. The individual was arrested for spreading false information with the intention of increasing Website traffic.

**H2:** Restrictions on Accessing ai Tools

Although ChatGPT is not directly available in China, users can access it using foreign phone numbers and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). However, access to such resources is restricted.

**H2:** Legal Implications for Deep Synthesis Service Providers

The ai-generated media law, effective since 10 January 2023, not only targets individuals but also holds “deep synthesis service providers” accountable for preventing the misuse of ai algorithms for illegal activities.

**H2:** Challenges for Companies Like Tencent

Companies like Tencent, the developer of WeChat, face challenges in ensuring their ai algorithms are not misused. Recently, Tencent introduced a “Deepfakes-as-a-Service” product that lets users create high-definition digital humans for a fee, raising concerns about potential misuse.

**H2:** Commitment to a Secure and Trustworthy Digital Environment

The Chinese government’s efforts to combat fake news and regulate contact communication underscore its commitment to maintaining a secure and trustworthy digital environment. However, concerns about censorship and the restriction of freedom of expression have been raised by critics.
