Japanese State Minister of Defense Yasuhide Nakayama contributes toward the book “Remaking the World – the Age of Global Enlightenment

Yasuhide Nakayama, a mentor of AIWS Innovation Network (AIWS.net), contributed toward the book:

“AI has become indispensable technology in various fields including in the manufacturing industry, and the medical, agriculture and the financial sectors, with the development of civilian technology. However, scientific developments can also present new challenges to national security. In many countries, the use of AI has led to the development of new military technologies, such as drone swarms and also renewed information warfare threats such as dissemination of fake news”

“As for AI ethics, the social principle of human-centric AI was developed as a guidance. It stipulates principles-related issues. A social principle of human-centric AI consists of seven principles, including human-centric principles that respect basic human rights guaranteed by domestic laws and international norms, and the principles of ensuring security which addresses security risks associated with elements of AI policy observatory of results obtained from AI operations”

“We believe that evaluations and the judgements on the use of AI will follow Japan’s social principle of human-centric AI and international norms as I mentioned. At that time, we are based on the social principles of human-centric AI. It is also necessary to consider that the systems need functions to detect and avoid unintended consequences and to shut down or suspend systems that have unintended behaviors.

“It’s necessary to have closed communications such as the exchange of information and shared awareness of issues related to the responsible use of AI among like-minded nations and international partners which share these values”
