Ubergizmo: China Announces Plans To Regulate Algorithms Tech Companies Use

Ubergizmo: China Announces Plans To Regulate Algorithms Tech Companies Use. “A lot of technology today relies on algorithms. We can see this in social media where posts from people we interact with more tend to be shown at the top. This is under the assumption that since we interact with it, we want to see more of it. Then we also see how algorithms are used to help display relevant ads while shopping. All of this is designed in a way to get us to spend more time or more money on a platform, but apparently that’s something China’s government doesn’t want. So much so that the Cyberspace Administration of China has announced that in the next three years, they want to set up governance rules for algorithms that tech companies use to attract users.”
