Japan is considering a more lenient approach to regulating artificial intelligence than the strict rules proposed by the European Union. The Japanese government aims to boost economic growth and become a leader in advanced chips with AI technology. The EU’s rules, such as disclosing copyrighted material used to train AI systems, are seen as too stringent by some Japanese officials. Japan’s approach could impact the establishment of the EU’s rules as a global benchmark. Both Japan and the EU are promoting their respective AI rule-making strategies to advance in the field of technology.
