Joint Statement by Group of Seven (G-7) Nations Leaders on the Hiroshima AI Process
We, the Leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), stress the innovative opportunities and transformative potential of advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, in particular, foundation models and generative AI. We also recognize the need to manage risks and to protect individuals, society, and our shared principles including the rule of law and democratic values, keeping humankind at the center. We affirm that meeting those challenges requires shaping an inclusive governance for artificial intelligence. Building on the progress made by relevant ministers on the Hiroshima AI Process, including the G7 Digital & Tech Ministers' Statement issued on September 7, 2023, we welcome the Hiroshima Process International Guiding Principles for Organizations Developing Advanced AI Systems and the Hiroshima Process International Code of Conduct for Organizations Developing Advanced AI Systems. In order to ensure both documents remain fit for purpose and responsive to this rapidly evolving technology, they will be reviewed and updated as necessary, including through ongoing inclusive multistakeholder consultations. We call on organizations developing advanced AI systems to commit to the application of the International Code of Conduct.
We instruct relevant ministers to accelerate the process toward developing the Hiroshima AI Process Comprehensive Policy Framework, which includes project based cooperation, by the end of this year, in cooperation with the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and to conduct multi-stakeholder outreach and consultation, including with governments, academia, civil society, and the private sector, not only those in the G7 but also in the economies beyond, including developing and emerging economies. We also ask relevant ministers to develop a work plan by the end of the year for further advancing the Hiroshima AI Process.
We believe that our joint efforts through the Hiroshima AI Process will foster an open and enabling environment where safe, secure, and trustworthy AI systems are designed, developed, deployed, and used to maximize the benefits of the technology while mitigating its risks, for the common good worldwide, including in developing and emerging economies with a view to closing digital divides and achieving digital inclusion. We also look forward to the UK's AI Safety Summit on November 1 and 2.
