Baidu and Apple join forces to incorporate AI in iPhones for Chinese market

Apple Collaborates with Chinese AI Giant Baidu to Comply with Regulations in China: What This Means for Devices and User Privacy

The American technology giant Apple has announced that it will integrate technology from artificial intelligence (AI) from the Chinese technology giant Baidu into its upcoming devices aimed at the Asian market. This collaboration will focus on the iPhone16, as well as updates to the Mac operating system and iOS18.

Baidu was chosen over other options, including Alibaba, due to its popularity as the most popular search engine in China where Google is blocked. This move by Apple is a response to the need for regulatory compliance in China, as the company couldn’t achieve this goal in the short term.

Outside of China, Apple devices will continue to have AI applications developed in-house by the Cupertino company. However, several technology giants like Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba have presented AI-based services in China. Concerns have been raised about the application of this technology in the country due to the strict censorship imposed by authorities.

To address these concerns, additional regulations have been approved to govern generative AI services in China, ensuring compliance with information security, protection of personal data, and adherence to social values and ethics. These regulations aim to prevent the generation of content that threatens national security or social stability.
