Dating apps, AI and Chinese e-commerce livestream

By the decision of the Australian government, popular dating companies such as Tinder, Bumble and Hinge are to develop a code of conduct that considers user safety issues.

Age UK’s analysis shows that 46% of people aged 65 and over cannot perform the eight most essential activities related to using the Internet. These include turning on devices, entering the required account passwords, finding and opening the apps you need, securing your passwords, adjusting your device settings, and using websites.

Livestream e-commerce is very popular in China. It is regularly watched by over 500 million Chinese, and sales during the broadcast last year were worth $4.6 trillion. Now, AI-generated streamers take over live product sales – avatars of Chinese influencers are broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Companies can sell their products non-stop thanks to a few minutes of film and 1000 dollars invested in its creation. Avatars can speak and behave in front of cameras almost like real people, which can be seen in videos on Taobao, China’s most popular e-commerce platform.
