China, Japan Cooperate in Digital Society and AI

Chinese and Japanese experts held and in-depth discussions on the prospects of bilateral cooperation in a digital society and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and reached a consensus on relevant issues. Regarding the issue of the digital economy, it is not merely the development of digital technologies or products, but to build an ecological system of the digital economy.

Experts explored solutions of issues that concern the community such as the care of the elderly in an ageing society, AI enabling climate change monitoring, tracking carbon footprint through AI technology, reducing energy consumption and integrating traditional energy with new technologies.

The young generation in China and Japan gets to know each other’s culture through digital products. In fact, based on the same cultural heritage and highly complementary technology on game development, the two countries have broad space for cooperation in the field of digital culture and digital economy.

There is great room for cooperation between China and Japan in the field of AI. China and Japan face common challenges in education, medical care, care for elderly people and other areas. Thus, both countries can explore how to offer better service to the public through AI technology.

Both China and Japan are committed to improving the toughness of the supply chain through science and technology. Facing the shock of COVID-19, logistics data presents both opportunities and challenges. Common sense has been reached on the sharing of logistics data, promoting the use of logistics data to a new level.

Moreover, AI can help solve the ageing problem faced by both China and Japan, dealing with the practical challenge of productivity shortage. AI can help solve the productivity shortfall. Meanwhile, AI itself is trying to improve productivity by reducing its reliance on data and humans.

AI also helps develop new materials such as new catalysts. Carbon emissions are unavoidable in the production of these new energies and how to reduce carbon emissions in producing this energy is an important issue.

In addition, human society is inseparable from computers. How to reduce the power consumption of its data centres and develop new computers with higher efficiency and fewer emissions is essential. Total global carbon emissions fell by a record 7% in 2020 from the previous year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, economic activities did not suspend because vigorous development of the internet economy. online activities can significantly reduce carbon emissions while ensuring normal economic development.

The application of AI requires the collection of high-quality data, which involves the aspects of data governance, privacy protection and other issues. In the process of developing AI, the concerns should be tackled. In addition, when it comes to cross-border data flows, countries around the world need to reach a consensus to ensure the security of data flow.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to support the development of key technologies while strengthening the regulation of the country’s tech giants as part of his strategy to expand the digital economy. The country needs to boost innovation in core technologies and step up research capabilities to achieve self-sufficiency as soon as possible. China also called for an acceleration in the development of high-speed, secure smart infrastructure that can connect all aspects of the online economy as well as for breakthroughs in key software technologies.

In recent years, the internet, big data, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, blockchain and other technologies have accelerated their innovation and are increasingly integrated into the entire economy and society. China needs to make its digital economy stronger and better to align the once-in-a-century transformation with the national priority of rejuvenating the country.
