Artificial intelligence (AI) and related technology networks are now being used as decision support in critical situations such as medical care, finance, and war. What are the responsibilities and roles of man and machines, and what should they be?
As technology is expanding globally, discussions on AI governance has been started at the international level such as OECD. In Japan, the Cabinet Office has announced the “human-centered AI social principles,” but how can the Japanese government, industry and universities contribute to these international discussions?
In this event, we invite Professor Toni Erskine (Australian National University and Cambridge University), who has been researching on moral agency and responsibility in world politics, and Professor Taylor Reynolds (MIT), who is also an expert member of the AIGO (AI expert Group) at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), to discuss the issues and prospects of AI governance and security with the University of Tokyo professors.
