(Reuters) – China’s cyberspace regulator issued draft rules on Friday for content providers that use deep learning and virtual reality technology, the latest measure to mould a cyberspace that promotes socialist values and upholds Beijing’s policies.

The rules are aimed at further regulating technologies such as those using algorithms to generate and modify text, audio, images, and videos, according to documents published on the website of the Cyberspace Administration of China.
