In an interview, Osaka University president Shojiro Nishio stresses the need to keep artificial intelligence (AI) under human control.

Nishio notes a key issue is a lack of human understanding of how an AI arrives at certain answers, and he says a major area for researchers is improving how to check all processes the AI went through.

He also says this “black box” problem demands an international response, given that AI will eventually be connected to the Internet and have a global impact.

Nishio cites a draft plan from Japan’s Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry directing developers to ensure they can explain the results of their AI’s judgments, and that they can control their AI.

“I am more concerned about what happens if AI produces incorrect answers or develops in a way that humans cannot control,” Nishio notes. “That sort of thing happens more and more often as AI starts getting used to real-life situations.”
