■ Background and issues requiring “reliable AI”

AI is also beginning to be used in important fields such as medical equipment, autonomous driving, infrastructure such as factories and power plants, and bank credit screening.
On June 14th of this year, the European Parliament adopted the world’s first EU AI regulation bill for “high-risk AI” that affects human life, safety, and dignity. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has already published 20 standards related to AI, and many more are waiting for standardization.
