PATH-AI is a UK-Japan collaboration that will develop and pilot a methodology for inter-cultural co-design of a culture- and human-centric framework for a more ethical and equitable human-AI ecosystem. The project will rely on an experienced multidisciplinary international team of researchers to build the first of its kind intercultural co-designed framework of this sort. Firstly, a comprehensive literature review and interview-based research on the normative (cultural, social, ethnographic) and institutional (legal, economic, political) dimensions of privacy, agency, and transparency (PAT) will clarify the UK- and Japan-specific views on these values. Specifically, the meaning, roles, and interrelationships between PAT within human-AI interactions will be considered, paying special attention to the fundamental role that PAT values have in furnishing other norms, politices, and laws that guide human-AI interaction. Secondly, by juxtaposing the Anglo-European and Japanese traditions, the researchers will draw a comprehensive view of PAT in human-AI ecosystems, expanding or delimiting these concepts. Challenging the limits of current AI ethics discussions, we will extend AI ethics to a wider landscape of cultures, values, and societies and explore how these have funded the nature and dynamics of the human-AI ecosystems within the UK and Japan. Thirdly, the researchers will build an intercultural bridge for communication between British and Japanese citizens through the commissioning and international exhibitions of British and Japanese art, inspired by our comparative analysis of PAT in innovation ecosystems. By exchanging art pieces between the two countries, viewers will be confronted with different views of AI and their reactions and views will be studied. This will conclude Phase One of the project. In Phase Two, extensive stakeholder engagement within working groups will be initiated. Working groups will collaborate to co-design a unique culture-informed international governance framework for AI ethics that is based on the enriched UK and Japanese traditions of PAT vis-à-vis AI. Through this work, we will also identify policy shortcomings and make recommendations. This framework and policy recommendations will be launched at an international conference, setting the start for future UK-Japan AI ethics and governance dialogues. Our work will benefit key stakeholders. The research carried out through this project will advance knowledge in the cultural, anthropopological fields by deepening understanding of and comparison between Anglo-European and Japanese representations and traditions regarding PAT, both between humans and between humans and inanimate objects. Our work will also bring key insights to political philosophy, law, and economics by reflecting how political, legal, and economic institutional structures adapt to different sociocultural views of PAT in practice. This will chart the path towards intercultural ethical studies, but also will highlight key lessons for future institution- and capacity-building that is to be based on and adapted to local norms and beliefs. PATH-AI will also build communication channels between policy-makers, civil society, research institutions, industry actors, and citizens within and between the UK and Japan. Through continuous and multisided stakeholder involvement in the research process, we will both enhance the quality of our research, but we will also build stakeholder connections that will survive beyond the project. Moreover, by clarifying the different, yet completentary British and Japanese cultures, we will build multual understanding and enrichment between the two nations at the level of both citizens and policy-makers. Ultimately, this will not only benefit intercultural dialogues, but will also facilitate future policy-making and regulation that will encourage ethical innovation and economic activity between the countries as well.
