The Japanese Ministry of Education has issued guidelines allowing the limited use of generative artificial intelligence such as ChatGPT in elementary, middle and high schools.


The guidelines call for special caution in its use by elementary school students (under the age of 13). In addition, submitting purely AI-generated schoolwork as a personal submission is considered cheating. Students should not enter personal information and should respect copyright laws.

The guidelines are preliminary and allow for limited use. In the fall, the Education Department plans to select a number of middle and high schools to test the use of AI and revise the guidelines based on the results.

Recently, the Hong Kong Department of Education unveiled an AI curriculum.
