G7 ministers discuss rules, risks in using Artificial Intelligence
Tokyo, Apr 29 (EFE).- Information technology ministers from the G7 country Saturday began a meeting in the Japanese town of Takasaki on the framing rules for using artificial intelligence (AI) and creating more secure and resilient digital infrastructures.
The rapid development of AI has highlighted the need to create international regulations as several countries are framing their own rules on programs like ChatGPT.
The ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) countries seek to lay the foundations and outline a rules-based global plan to avoid using technology that undermines values and democratic processes.
The roadmap by the most-developed countries to promote the responsible use of AI will encourage others to actively participate in developing global standards.
Japan has said it wanted to lead the discussion on the use of AI during the two-day meeting of Digitization and Technology heads from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States in Takasaki, some 100 km northwest of Tokyo.
“While promoting the development of the AI, there are risks depending on how it is used. It is important to consider appropriate rules. I would like to draw up a document on specific measures in this regard,” the Japanese Minister of the Interior and Communications Takeaki Matsumoto told reporters.
Matsumoto chaired the meeting with the Japanese Ministers for Digitalization, Taro Kono, and Economy, Trade and Industry, Yasutoshi Nishimura,
The G7 ministers will address the fake news issue and other forms of disinformation, for example, during the war in Ukraine. EFE
