World leaders at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Japan called for the development of international standards to limit the potential damage from rapid innovations in artificial intelligence (AI).

They wrote that AI's challenges must be weighed alongside its advantages, while new technologies should be regulated in harmony with democratic values like fairness, accountability, transparency, protection from online abuse, and respect for privacy and human rights.

The G-7 leaders cited in particular generative AI, as some experts warn the technology may worsen polarization through machine-generated content and make it difficult for people to assess the authenticity of information.

The leaders also urged the creation of technical standards for the development of "trustworthy" AI, noting G-7 members may have differing strategies and policy tools for realizing this goal.
