Nippon Telegraph and Telephone: CSIS Launches AI Council, Elects NTT’s Jun Sawada as Member

Tokyo – October 27, 2022 ― NTT Corporation (“NTT”) is pleased to announce that the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has established the CSIS AI Council (“AI Council”) 1 and elected Jun Sawada, chairman of NTT as one of its members. Comprised of 17 distinguished global leaders, the Council is an international effort co-chaired by Julie Sweet, President and CEO of Accenture, and Brad Smith, President and Vice President of Microsoft.

“AI is transforming the global economy and has the potential to make a huge contribution to building a more innovative, prosperous and sustainable world. The CSIS AI Council brings together an extraordinary group of leaders to define what accountability is business, international collaboration and effective governance on AI looks not just in principle but in practice,” said Brad Smith.

Governments around the world are embarking on major AI policy and legislative initiatives that will have significant implications for the future of global growth and innovation. Over the next year, there is a critical window of opportunity for leading democracies to create a collaborative framework for global AI governance and ensure a values-consistent future of responsible AI use. democratic. Creating such a framework should prevent a fractured AI regulatory landscape. Seizing this opportunity will be a major challenge, but the CSIS AI Council aims to provide a concrete path for international cooperation. This includes advising and supporting individual governments, as well as multilateral fora, such as the G7, in their work on this crucial topic.

“As organizations around the world continue to advance AI at scale, major governments have an opportunity to coordinate their regulatory approaches so everyone can responsibly realize the promise of AI,” said said Julie Sweet. “Through meaningful dialogue and cooperation, businesses and governments can foster the development and use of AI that is effective, fair, secure, and respectful of each individual.”

The work of the AI ​​Council aims to provide essential insights on translating AI principles into practice, establishing common standards for AI safety and security measures, and accelerating the global regulatory interoperability and consistency. This work is underpinned by three guiding principles: commitment to safe and responsible AI; the promotion of AI at the service of society; and supporting a global AI regulatory environment that fosters international collaboration. In addition to direct government and public engagement, the Council will publish three white papers that provide detailed, actionable and prudent recommendations to the global AI policy community.

Gregory C. Allen, Director of the CSIS AI Governance Project, will serve as Executive Director of the CSIS AI Council.
