DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates has joined Japan’s Hiroshima Artificial Intelligence Process Friends Group, which aims to regulate the usage of artificial intelligence through a global framework, making it the only Arab country to participate.  

The international voluntary framework includes approximately 49 countries that are committed to promoting safe and secure AI guidelines. It was established in 2023, when Japan chaired the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations.

“In this momentous stride towards progress, the UAE shines as a symbol of innovation and collaboration,” said UAE’s Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Omar Sultan AlOlama, on X. 

“Embracing the boundless potential of technology and innovation, the UAE charts a path towards a future defined by excellence, advancement, and leadership on the world stage, fueled by a vision that knows no bounds,” he added. 

The Japanese Prime Minister KISHIDA Fumio revealed the international framework during his visit to Paris on May 2 in a speech given at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Ministerial Council meeting. 

“Generative AI has the potential to be a vital tool to further enrich the world,” he said, according to a transcript of his speech provided in advance. “We must also confront the dark side of AI, such as the risk of disinformation.”

“Let us collaborate as nations united by a common purpose to address the universal opportunities and risks brought about by AI, and work towards achieving safe, secure, and trustworthy AI,” Kishida added.
