These principles should apply to all AI actors to cover the design, development, deployment and use of advanced AI systems.
The group of seven nations (G7) will today agree on an 11 point code of conduct for companies developing artificial intelligence (AI) technology, a G7 document showed.
Amid the recent developments in AI as-well-as concerns over security and privacy that come with it, Hiroshima AI Process (HAP), initiated at the Annual G7 Summit held in Hiroshima, Japan, aims to establish trustworthy AI technical standards at the international level.
The HAP will be operating in close connection with organisations including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Global Partnership on AI (GPAI). This non-exhaustive list of guiding principles will be discussed and elaborated as a living document to build on the existing OECD AI principles.
The code of conduct urges AI actors to take appropriate measures throughout the development of advanced AI systems, adhering to international technical standards. They should implement appropriate data input controls and audits.
The companies should publicly report advanced AI systems’ capabilities, limitations and domains of appropriate and inappropriate use. They should also work towards responsible information sharing and reporting of incidents.
Stakeholders should invest in robust security controls as-well-as develop, implement and disclose AI governance and risk management policies. To enable users to identify AI generated content, watermarking or other techniques should be used.
The EU has been forward at regulating the emerging technology with its AI Act, while Japan, the United States and countries in Southeast Asia have taken a more laid-back approach. European Commission digital chief, Vera Jourova, believes that the code of conduct will act as a ‘bridge’ until regulation is in place.
Earlier the United Nations (UN) also announced a advisory body for international AI governance.
The Group of Seven (G7) is an inter-governmental political forum consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The European Union (EU) is a non-enumerated member.
