OpenAI’s New Tokyo Office Opening This Month

OpenAI is launching its office in Tokyo this month, exactly a year after announcing its intention to do so. This would be the first Asian office for the corporation.

Updates to OpenAI’s AI model are reportedly also intended to be released in Japanese.

After Dublin and London, OpenAI would open an office in Tokyo.

According to reports, when OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, met with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, they discussed the benefits and drawbacks of technology in terms of security and privacy, with the latter being informed by Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno.

According to Matsuno, Japan is now considering the viability of bringing OpenAI’s technology to the nation.

“We hope to… build something great for Japanese people, make the models better for Japanese language and Japanese culture,” Altman told reporters following their discussion with Kishida. Following ChatGPT’s launch, this is one of Altman’s first stops on his global tour.

In addition, the cabinet member in charge of Japan’s digital transformation, Taro Kono, expressed hope that artificial intelligence (AI) technology will be crucial to the government’s plans to change work practices. He did admit, though, that there would be difficulties in the near future implementing ChatGPT in governmental offices because of things like the possibility of misleading information being produced by the technology.

In December, OpenAI revealed plans to open an office in India in addition to Japan. To assist OpenAI in navigating India’s AI legislation and regulatory landscape, Rishi Jaitly, a former executive who most recently served as vice president of Twitter, will take on the role of senior advisor. Additionally, Rajeev Chandrashekar, the Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, was recently met by OpenAI executives Anna Adeola Makanju, James Hairston, the global head of Public Policy, and Jaitly.
