Fumio Kishida, the Japanese Prime Minister, introduced an international framework for controlling and utilizing generative AI during a speech at the Association for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris. This announcement is part of a global effort to regulate the rapidly developing technology.
"Generative AI has the potential to be a vital tool to further enrich the world," Kishida said. But "we must also confront the dark side of AI, such as the risk of disinformation."
A Hiroshima AI process to develop international guiding principles and a code of conduct for AI developers was launched by Japan last year when it held the position of chair of the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations.
According to Kishida, who did not name any of the 49 nations and regions that have signed up for the voluntary framework, which is known as the Hiroshima AI Process Friends Group, To deal with the dangers posed by generative AI, they will put principles and a code of conduct into practice and "promote cooperation to ensure that people all over the world can benefit from the use of safe, secure, and trustworthy AI," he said.
Several nations, including China, the United States, and the European Union, have been rushing to establish rules and oversight for AI, while international organizations like the United Nations have been debating how to monitor it.
