Algorithms are not included in the transfer of TikTok
TikTok roof firm ByteDance does not want to give the recommendation algorithm to TikTok’s global operations management after its sale or transfer. A new algorithm needs to be prepared.
The TikTok application, which has become the most effective platform of social media and is installed on 3 billion devices according to estimates, is about to restructure its global operations under the leadership of Oracle. However, a roughness may arise.
Algorithms will remain private
According to the information received, TikTok roof company ByteDance does not want to give the recommendation algorithm to this new global management. As it is known, the most important element of TikTok was this recommendation algorithm and played a big role in becoming a phenomenon.
On the other hand, it is known that China wants companies that will supply artificial intelligence technologies to foreign companies to go through an approval process. In this respect, the decision not to give TikTok’s artificial intelligence algorithm is not only optional, but also Chinese approvals.
The partnership that will take over TikTok global management will need to develop a new artificial intelligence algorithm. It is stated that the partnership plan will be submitted to the Trump government as of tomorrow. With the government’s approval, the new administration will have to act quickly to develop an algorithm. Of course, in this case, TikTok will run a different algorithm in global versions, and a different algorithm in other regions version. Time will tell if this will have a noticeable difference. It can also complicate matters if the government includes this algorithm in the approval process.
