to sign a pledge to crack down on AI content intended to deceive voters ahead of crucial elections around the world this year.

A "pledge" does not mean that much, still it would be nice to think that all social media,and all other forms of media in general, including local news providers would at least consider signing a pledge. But then many media outlets might go out of business if they would actually do it, and many Internet 'influencers and blogsters would have to go back to whatever minimum wage job, or maybe they might have had before.

"Pledge"

Always pledging something.

Beginning to think the 'P' in 'LDP' stands for 'Pledge'.

After all.......that is the only thing that Abe,Suga and Kishida could.

This month, Meta was one of 20 major tech firms including OpenAI to sign a pledge to crack down on AI content intended to deceive voters ahead of crucial elections around the world this year.

Pledge, vow, urge; like the LDP Silicon Valley knows this is the code word to avoid all responsibility.

If Facebook, Insta is invaded by a massive influx of multi-modal GLLM imagery that crashes their operating model it might be said to be a good thing.

Don't worry Kishida, I won't be deceived by AI content. Your policies and track record alone are enough for me to want to vote for another party and/ or leader.

A five minutes phone call is surely more than sufficient, to explain that AI is very interesting and fascinating at a first glance, but it's intrinsic to that so-called technology, due to the internal mathematical and algorithmic processes, that it cannot and won't ever work properly and mostly delivers only vague or questionable results, of those all need additional verification because they often are fake, simply wrong or stem from a hallucinatory effect. So I recommend neither to rely on or put too much hope in that overdone hype. And that's all about it in a few words.

But don't develop fears too quickly now, I don't tell them and don't have either of both their phone numbers. lol

Zuckerberg lives and breaths being Zuckerberg and only Zuckerberg.

Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg has little time for anyone other than Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida would be best informed of this fact.

Zuckerberg has some of the deepest investment pockets where Generative AI is concerned.

AI will eventually be great but what types of new careers can be created for those it displaces?

They think we will turn more to arts, food, and services, with AI leaving us more time on our hands.

"I'm really excited for the work that is happening here in Japan,"

Said no one ever.

My daughter's gaijin boyfriend reminded me the other day how the rest of the world thinks Japan is light-years ahead in technology. I guess Zuckerberg didn't get the memo.

Zuckerberg discusses AI risks with Kishida

For what?

Kishida has no idea what AI is. He has even less of a clue as to who Zuckerberg is.

Tak about a complete waste of time.

Ah yeah discuss the dangers of AI with they guy having everything to gain by pushing AI. We are doomed.

in a world run by AI, there will be no need for billionaires like Zuckerberg.

Sadly if we continue with restrictionless capitalism it will be the opposite. Many industries will be taken over by AI services, and instead of thousands of different companies and millions of jobs there will be a few AI service providers making all that money, and those few will be people like Zuckerberg. All the big companies are seeing this, which is why all of them are going all in on AI, Google, Microsoft, Meta etc. They know it's the only way to stay at the top. The top 0.001 will get richer and richer and the other 99% will get poorer, until there is not enough people left that can afford to buy their products and services.

There is no need for them already.

Gee can see how that conversation went. Kishida...What's AI?

Zuckerberg..nothing for you to worry about...just give us access and we'll supply data on everyone!

This is delightful news hopefully we still have positive recall of when MW met with President Obama

As far as his power as a CEO can be rated he's outstanding and has all of the most valuable contact portfolios in the game.

It would be naive to think that after only a 30 minute meeting with the head of the state that any disclosure confirming or denying possibility of mw's company profiting from using its AI tools in conjunction with the huge data sets available now to the government of this country after the introduction and expansion of the my number system.
