Japan's Fumio Kishida unveils a framework for global regulation of generative AI

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida introduced an international framework for governing and utilizing generative AI during a speech at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris on Thursday. This initiative contributes to global efforts aimed at regulating the rapidly advancing technology.

In his address, Kishida emphasized the potential of generative AI as a crucial tool for global enrichment but also acknowledged the imperative to address its negative aspects, including the risk of disinformation.

During Japan’s chairmanship of the Group of Seven (G7) last year, it launched the Hiroshima AI process to develop international guiding principles and a code of conduct for AI developers. Kishida mentioned that 49 countries and regions, constituting the Hiroshima AI Process Friends Group (though not named explicitly), have committed to this voluntary framework. Their collective objective is to implement principles and a code of conduct to mitigate the risks associated with generative AI and foster cooperation to ensure global access to safe, secure, and reliable AI.

Various nations, including the European Union, the United States, and China, alongside international bodies such as the United Nations, are actively developing regulations and oversight mechanisms for AI, reflecting the global effort to manage this transformative technology.
