Japan is considering creating a new dialogue forum with like-minded nations to discuss global regulations for the responsible use of generative AI technology. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is expected to make an announcement at an OECD ministerial meeting in Paris in early May, according to Mainichi's sources. Japan aims to build broader support for the "Hiroshima AI Process," a G7 initiative to discuss global rules for AI. As generative AI tools such as ChatGPT rapidly advance, there is growing concern that misinformation spread by AI misuse could threaten democracy and political stability. By taking a leading role in international regulation of AI, Japan hopes to promote both the development and oversight of the technology. The non-binding guidelines agreed at the G7 summit in Hiroshima aim to promote the creation of safe and trustworthy AI systems.
