ChatGPT failed to identify Japan’s Digital Transformation Minister Kono Taro

OpenAI’s ChatGPT was unable to properly identify Japan’s Minister of Digital Transformation, Kono Taro, despite his push for increasing the use of artificial intelligence to address job shortages caused by Japan’s shrinking population.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg Television, Kono Taro revealed that when he asked ChatGPT himself, the AI ​​model gave the wrong answer. He cautioned against relying only on the right information technology. In addition, Kono requested that his name be written in the Japanese style, with the surname preceding the given name.

As the current chairman of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has formed a commission to investigate the economic prospects and potential risks of AI. Kono Taro made the remarks while speaking about the creation of the committee, emphasizing Japan’s desire to take a leading role in regulating this technology.

Recently, the Group of Seven digital ministers released an action plan to encourage the use of “trusted AI.” Additionally, this month, the European Union took steps to regulate AI applications, including Google’s Bard and OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

According to Kono Taro, Japan’s population decline has made robots less of a threat to the workforce. As a result, Japan is more open to experimenting with new AI technologies. The government is currently in talks with Microsoft and other technology providers about developing the database. Kono expressed concern about the underrepresentation of minority languages ​​compared to English and the potential for bias in the data.

The mobile division of SoftBank Group Corp recently announced its participation in an international competition to develop a version of OpenAI Inc.’s ChatGPT, joining the ranks of US and Chinese companies with the same goal.

As Japan’s Minister of Digital Transformation, Kono Taro has been fighting paperwork and archaic technologies, such as fax machines and floppy disks. He intends to pass legislation this month that would remove such requirements from more than 10,000 laws and regulations, which would involve searching through decades of paperwork, he said.

The Japanese government’s initiative to distribute identity cards to all residents to facilitate the issuance of municipal documents has backfired when cardholders received residency certificates intended for unrelated individuals, raising privacy concerns.

Kono Taro expressed his confidence that local governments will restart the program after evaluating Fujitsu Ltd., the system’s creator.

The minister contested with Kishida in the second round of the election for the leadership of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party in Japan in 2021. who can serve as prime minister.

When asked how ChatGPT identified him after conducting a search on himself, Kono said that the AI ​​system referred to him as “the Prime Minister of Japan.”
