The European Union and Japan are increasingly seeing eye to eye on how to regulate generative AI, a rapidly developing technology that can create text, images, and other creative content.
In an interview with Reuters on Monday, European Commission Vice-President for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova said that she sees “a lot of convergence in how we look at AI and generative AI” with Japan.
This is significant because the EU and Japan are two of the world’s leading economies, and their cooperation on AI regulation could help to set global standards.
Generative AI is a powerful technology with the potential to revolutionize many industries, from healthcare to entertainment. However, it also raises a number of concerns, such as the potential for misuse and the spread of misinformation.
Both the EU and Japan are working to develop regulations that will promote the responsible development and use of generative AI. These regulations are likely to focus on issues such as transparency, accountability, and safety.
The convergence in thinking between the EU and Japan is a positive sign, and it suggests that the two economies are committed to working together to ensure that generative AI is used for good.
