Project Outline

We will examine and compare how Emotional AI impacts commercial, security, civic and governance in UK and Japan. As emotional AI emerges, we need to examine how countries and businesses creating and deploying this technology can mutually learn ethical best practice. Japan and UK are advanced nations in AI, but differ in social, political and normative histories, therefore there are many UK-Japan cross-cultural contextual issues to examine. Our comparative focus also enables both parties to reframe the global dominance of Western academic literature on surveillance; privacy; freedom v. security; corporations' role in society; disinformation and digital manipulation of citizens; governance; and emotional AI in society. We will provide citizen-led, multi-sectoral, anticipatory and interdisciplinary responses and feed these into policymaking.
