Our point of view
China’s new draft algorithm rules reveal the various objectives of Beijing’s recent regulatory crackdown.
Control is a top priority. One provision of the project requires that the platform be “oriented towards dominant values” and “actively provide positive energy”. In other words, they should support the message of the Chinese Communist Party, and certainly not oppose it.
But the rules are not only aimed at strengthening the power of the CCP. They also recognize that China’s social stability depends on ensuring that the lives of 1.4 billion Chinese in China are acceptable.
Some provisions aim to protect consumers. Algorithms that encourage addictive behavior are prohibited, and algorithms that trick users into spending large sums of money on the same product or service or charging differentiated prices “unfairly” are also prohibited. .. In addition, there is a clause that stipulates that providers must give users the right to opt out of receiving personalized recommendations.
The CCP does not intend to give the algorithm much power. But he also wants the algorithm to help people – not the other way around. In this regard, Western regulators can learn a thing or two.

Mitsubishi Electric is also moving staff between departments more frequently. This is a change in the company where employees generally stay in the area to which they were originally assigned. “I want to connect the departments horizontally by moving people,” said Urma. Nikkei Asia Interview.
“We called on people to report the problems,” he said willingly, believing they would do the right thing. “We now know that sometimes it doesn’t come out like that. “
Some of the biggest Japanese companies have had many false starts to improve corporate governance. Decades of fraud and a string of broken vows formed from previous scandals mean Urma is on a long and difficult road to regaining the trust of her clients and investors. to augment.
