US and Japan call for deeper cooperation in AI, semiconductor fields

The Asahi Shimbun reported on Saturday (March 30) that when Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida meets with President Joe Biden next month, the two countries will issue a joint statement announcing strengthened cooperation in high-tech fields such as artificial intelligence (AI).

Biden will receive Fumio Kishida, who is on an official visit to the US, on April 10.

The Asahi Shimbun, which did not cite its sources, said the joint statement would refer to the relationship between the two countries as a "global partnership" and advocate strengthening cooperation in the fields of artificial intelligence and semiconductors.

As part of the agreement between the two sides, Japan and the US may work with companies such as US chip giant Nvidia, British semiconductor giant Arm, and cross-border e-commerce platform Amazon to establish a framework for AI research and development.
