Artificial intelligence, fairness, and digital regulation: can the West learn from China?
Western accounts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in China often paint a dystopian picture of an Orwellian surveillance state. But what really makes industry practitioners in the world's second-largest digital economy tick? 2022 IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) participant Junhua Zhu, wants to lift the veil, taking a deep dive into the Chinese AI ecosystem.
