     概要を見る

    BACKGROUND: Technology can assist in providing effective infectious disease management, but it can also become a source of social injustice and inequality. To control the rapidly increasing SARS-CoV-2 infections and promote effective vaccine administration, both South Korea and Japan have been using several technology-based systems and mobile apps. However, their different approaches to technology use have yielded contrasting social implications. OBJECTIVE: Through comparative studies of the use of digital technologies for pandemic management and its social implications in Japan and South Korea, this study aimed to discuss whether the active and optimal use of technology for pandemic management can occur without subverting or compromising important social values, such as privacy and equality. METHODS: This study compared the social implications of Japan's and South Korea's contrasting approaches to technology implementation for COVID-19 pandemic management in early 2022. RESULTS: Digital technologies have been actively and comprehensively used in South Korea, enabling effective COVID-19 management, but have raised serious concerns about privacy and social equality. In Japan, technologies have been more carefully implemented, thereby not causing similar social concerns, but their effectiveness in supporting COVID-19 regulations has been criticized. CONCLUSIONS: Potential social implications such as equality concerns, the balance between public interest and individual rights, and legal implications must be carefully assessed in conjunction with effective and optimal infectious disease control to achieve sustainable use of digital health technologies for infectious disease management in the future.

     概要を見る

    Medical research is indispensable to develop new treatments or diagnostic methods. An ethics review board reviews the validity of such medical research. However, with the recent advances in medicine, a meaningful review of medical research often requires advanced knowledge. There is thus a growing necessity for a professional who can support ethical review. Therefore, a new system called the Certified Research Ethics Committee Professional (CReP), an Ethical Review Expert, has been established.

  • Comparative Analysis of Laws on Artificial Intelligence Facilitated Crimes

    2022年  

     概要を見る

     This research compared penal laws related to deepfake technology across various jurisdictions to identify optimal legal solutions for managing AI-facilitated crimes.  Some jurisdictions, such as South Korea and Virginia in the United States, penalize creating and distributing sexual deepfakes. However, the appropriateness of the penalties, given the grave harm to the victims, is still debated. Other jurisdictions, like Texas, penalize using deepfake technology to spread false information about public elections or politics. This has gained particular significance because deepfake videos, realistically portraying events that never occurred, can easily allow people to believe and spread false information. Analyzing penal laws related to deepfake technology reveals the challenges of developing legal frameworks that can effectively address the rapidly evolving landscape of AI-facilitated crimes.  Based on the review of the laws, three legislative recommendations are made, including (1) a periodic review of the development of socially undesirable use of AI, (2) an examination of legal frameworks that govern conventional offenses, such as sexual offenses and fraud, to ensure that they can flexibly address new types of AI-facilitated crimes, and (3) a reassessment of the appropriateness of penalties for existing laws on AI crimes.
