On Thursday, 13 July, China announced that it has finalised new rules for regulating generative artificial intelligence (AI). The new regulation, which was developed by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) in collaboration with other regulators, will come into effect on 15 August.

The licensing regime highlights Beijing's challenge of balancing its desire to be a leader in technology with its strict censorship policies.
