G-7 ministers agree to 'five principles' for assessing AI risks

Group seeks to avoid incompatible standards that would impede development

Participants in Saturday Group of Seven ministers meeting agreed to principles for the appropriate use of AI, including the rule of law and due process.

TOKYO -- The Group of Seven leading industrialized nations will call for the creation of international standards for assessing the risks associated with generative artificial intelligence at the digital and technology ministers meeting that opened Saturday to promote the technology's prudent development.

The idea will be included in a statement to be issued at the Sunday close of the meeting, which is being held in the Japanese city of Takasaki in Gunma prefecture, as the group explores ways to curb the spread of bias and misinformation, infringement of copyrights and other harmful effects due to AI.
