The government has started considering regulatory measures for major domestic and international artificial intelligence developers. The strengthening of regulations is receiving attention abroad due to growing concerns about the safety of generative AI. The government plans to find a way to overhaul its established approach, which relies on developers’ voluntary efforts to improve AI safety. The government will convene an AI strategy meeting at the end of May, where concrete policies, including possible regulations and other potential measures, will take place. are discussed. Within the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, there are proposals to require major AI developers to undergo third-party security verification and share information with the government. These proposals could form the basis for future regulations. However, there are voices within the government that oppose strict regulations, arguing that they could hinder technological innovation. The government therefore plans to take a cautious approach to consensus building during the meeting. In April, the government issued guidelines for AI developers, urging them to take action against disinformation with safety in mind. The European Union has passed the AI ​​Law that classifies AI risks into four categories and regulates the development and exploitation of AI. There have been calls in Japan to follow these global trends and implement regulatory measures.
