北京,8月30日(新华社)——据一位专家观察,关于计划出售TikTok在美国的业务,TikTok的母公司字节跳动将需要遵守中国最新修订的出口禁令或限制技术目录的批准程序。


作为一家快速增长的创新企业,字节跳动在人工智能等领域拥有许多前沿技术,其中一些技术可能已经被调整后的目录所覆盖,对外经济贸易大学崔帆教授在采访中评论目录时告诉新华社。


修订后的目录由商务部和科技部于周五联合发布,增加了23项出口限制项目。


在TikTok交易中,崔引用了计算机服务行业信息处理技术类别下的两个新项目,即“基于数据分析的个性化信息推送服务技术”和“人工智能交互界面技术”。

 

字节跳动国际业务的快速发展是建立在中国强大的技术支持之上的,崔说,并指出该公司向海外分支机构提供核心算法服务的行为构成了典型的技术服务出口。


崔说:“无论新的所有者和运营商是谁,为了让国际业务继续顺利运行,很有可能需要将软件代码或使用权从中国境内转移到中国境外。”也可能需要从中国境内向中国境外提供技术服务。


崔说:“因此,建议字节跳动认真研究修改后的目录,认真认真地考虑是否有必要暂停相关交易的实质性谈判,遵守法定申请和报告程序,然后采取进一步适当的行动。”

BEIJING, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, will need to comply with approval procedures under China's latest revision to the catalogue of technologies that are subject to export bans or restrictions, regarding the planned selling of the video-sharing app's U.S. operations, an expert observed.

As a fast-growing innovative enterprise, ByteDance has many cutting-edge technologies in artificial intelligence and other fields, and some technologies may have been covered by the adjusted catalogue, Professor Cui Fan at the University of International Business and Economics told Xinhua in an interview commenting on the catalogue.

The revised catalogue, released jointly on Friday by the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Science and Technology, added a total of 23 items subject to export restrictions.

Two new items under the category of information processing technology in the computer service industry were cited by Cui as relevant in the TikTok deal, which was the "personalized information push service technology based on data analysis" and "artificial intelligence interactive interface technology."

The rapid development of ByteDance's international businesses has been built on the strong technical support based in China, Cui said, noting that the company's act of offering core algorithm services to overseas branches constitutes a typical export of technical services.

"For the international business to continue to operate smoothly, no matter who its new owner and operator are, it is highly likely that there will need to be a transfer of software codes or right of use from inside China to outside China," Cui said. "Technical services provision from inside China to outside China may also be needed."

"Therefore, it is suggested that ByteDance carefully study the revised catalogue, seriously and carefully consider whether it is necessary to suspend substantive negotiations on relevant transactions, comply with statutory application and reporting procedures, and then take further actions as appropriate," Cui said.
