Japan said on Friday that government officials from the Group of Seven (G7) would meet next week to discuss problems caused by ChatGPT and other creative AI technologies.
Last week, the leaders of the G7, including the United States, the European Union, and Japan, decided to set up an international platform called the “Hiroshima AI process” to discuss problems with fast-growing AI technologies.
Takeaki Matsumoto, Japan’s minister of communications, said that the G7 would hold its first working-level meeting on AI on May 30 to talk about protecting intellectual property, spreading false information, and how the technology should be handled.
Tech officials worldwide are looking at the effects of well-known AI services like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which Microsoft backs. This is what is being talked about.
The EU is close to passing the first primary AI law in the world. This makes other countries consider what rules should be implemented for AI technologies.
Matsumoto said that Japan, which is in charge of the G7 this year, “will lead the G7 discussion on responsive use of generative AI technology.” He also said that the forum’s goal was to develop suggestions for heads of state by the end of the year
At the G7 meeting in Hiroshima last week, leaders also called for creating and using international tech standards to keep AI “trustworthy” and “in line with our shared democratic values.”
MATSUMOTO SAID THAT the G7 AI working group would meet with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development at a press event.
