【Event Announcement】Standardization of AI Safety: Risks, Opportunities, and International Cooperation(2024.2.7)


In recent years, while AI technology has rapidly developed, there have been concerns about unauthorized learning by AI, copyright issues in AI-generated images, and the handling of personal and confidential information by AI. These concerns point to delays in addressing institutional, legal, and ethical challenges related to AI technology. The extremely unique problems of AI technology are becoming increasingly difficult to manage within the framework of a single country’s systems, especially in our current society where the movement of people, goods, and information across borders is accelerating.

In this 21st century era of AI, the United Kingdom, which is intensifying its shift towards Asia and is on the verge of joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and Japan, will discuss the risks associated with AI. This discussion is expected to be highly beneficial in providing insights for both countries to take leadership in forming rules regarding AI.

In an era of deepening Japan-UK relations, which could be called the ‘Rebirth of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance’, the Economic Security Research Program (ESRP) at RCAST, The University of Tokyo, and the British Embassy Tokyo will co-host a symposium. The symposium, titled ‘Standardization AI Safety: Risks, Opportunities, and International Cooperation,’ will be held on February 7th, and will feature Lindy Cameron CB OBE, CEO of the National Cyber Security Centre, as a keynote speaker.
