In May 2023, at the G7 Hiroshima Summit held in Hiroshima, Japan, the leaders of the G7 and the EU launched the ' Hiroshima AI Process ' to discuss generative AI. The Hiroshima AI Process is intended to discuss generative AI, which is rapidly developing and becoming an important issue for the entire international community.

Through the Hiroshima AI Process, the G7 is developing a code of conduct to define how AI developers should manage their AI to address privacy concerns and security risks, and this code of conduct is expected to be agreed soon. It is clear from the G7 document that this is the case.

According to the document, the G7 has developed an 11-point code of conduct that states: ``Developing cutting-edge AI systems, including basic models and generative AI systems, to disseminate safe, secure, and reliable AI around the world.'' It will provide voluntary guidelines for the actions taken by organizations. The G7 explains the reason for developing a code of conduct: ``to help address the risks and challenges while reaping the benefits of AI technology.''

The G7 AI Code of Conduct requires AI developers to take appropriate measures to identify, assess, and mitigate risks throughout the lifecycle of AI products, and to ensure that AI products are used even after they are released on the market. We are asking them to take measures against incidents. AI developers will also need to create reports on the capabilities, limitations, uses, and misuses of their AI products, and invest in strong security controls.

While the EU is at the forefront of AI regulation with its own AI laws , countries such as Japan, the United States, and Southeast Asian countries have adopted an approach of not regulating to the same extent as the EU in order to promote economic growth. I am.

Attending the Internet Governance Forum Kyoto 2023 held in Kyoto, Japan in early October 2023, European Commission Digital Director Vera Jurova said that the G7 AI Code of Conduct is “a strong It serves as a solid foundation and serves as a link until regulations are put in place.'

It is also reported that on October 27, 2023, US President Joe Biden plans to sign an executive order to formulate new rules regarding AI technology.

This executive order is scheduled to be issued as early as the 30th, and it has been pointed out that the way AI is used in various categories such as medical care, education, trade, and housing in the United States may change. The AI Regulation Executive Order states, ``AI has extraordinary potential, both promising and dangerous.The responsible use of AI will solve urgent challenges and make our world richer, more productive, and more productive.'' 'It has the potential to be innovative and safe. At the same time, irresponsible use can exacerbate social harms such as fraud, discrimination, prejudice, and disinformation.' Together with the G7 AI Code of Conduct, this will likely be used to advance AI regulation in the United States.
