The Group of Seven (G7) industrial nations are poised to establish a voluntary ‘Code of Conduct’ for companies innovating in the field of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) systems. This initiative, emanating from the “Hiroshima AI process,” seeks to address potential misuse and risks associated with this transformative technology.
The G7, comprising Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain, and the United States, along with the European Union, initiated this process to set a precedent for AI governance.
G7 Nations Pitch Global AI Code of Conduct
Amid rising privacy concerns and security risks, the 11-point code is a beacon of hope. According to a G7 document, the code of conduct,
“Aims to promote safe, secure, and trustworthy AI worldwide and will provide voluntary guidance for actions by organizations developing the most advanced AI systems.”
The code encourages companies to identify, evaluate, and mitigate risks throughout the AI lifecycle. Furthermore, it recommends publishing public reports on AI capabilities, limitations, and usage, emphasizing robust security controls.

OpenAI Joins the Cause
OpenAI, the parent company of ChatGPT, has also formed a Preparedness team to manage the risks posed by AI models. Spearheaded by Aleksander Madry, the team will address risks such as individualized persuasion, cybersecurity threats, and the propagation of misinformation.
This move is OpenAI’s contribution to the upcoming UK global AI summit, echoing the global call for safety and transparency in AI development.
The UK government defines Frontier AI as,
“Highly capable general-purpose AI models that can perform a wide variety of tasks and match or exceed the capabilities present in today’s most advanced models.”
OpenAI’s Preparedness team will focus on managing the risks, further solidifying the need for a global AI ‘Code of Conduct.’
As AI continues to evolve, the G7’s proactive stance and OpenAI’s commitment to risk mitigation are timely responses. The voluntary ‘Code of Conduct’ and the formation of a dedicated Preparedness team represent significant steps towards harnessing the power of AI responsibly. The aim is to ensure its benefits are maximized while potential risks are effectively managed.
