Chinese President Xi Jinping is aiming to seize control over the internet to curb dissent, which could possibly threaten the Chinese Communist Party's regime.


Xi is heading towards “smart governance” which translates to having an upper hand in social and political control. Smart governance is the realm of cyberspace administration work—the increased use of artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and cloud computing, with the ultimate goal to transition China’s cyberspace from technical administration to “AI administration.”


However, Vinu Dharunesh J, an associate research fellow writing in Indo-pacific Centre for Strategic Communications (IPCSC) said that one of the largest military conglomerates in the world is seizing control of cyber security in order to eliminate threats that do not exist.


Chinese Electronics Technology Group (CETC), a state-owned military conglomerate deployed military-style surveillance—using the Hikvision Digital Technology, and command of networks across China that includes a facial recognition system which is capable of automatically identifying people, also run ethical profiling on them and tracking almost every being in sight of the cameras. This step taken by CETC is to strengthen “national security” as they say it.
