AI Speeds Up Government Policy Decisions

The Japanese government believes Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an important key to Japan’s economic progress and is a blueprint for the future. The Japanese government plans to introduce AI data analysis system to speed their policy decision making.  The new Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga has called for greater use of AI and robotics including IoT as part of the government’s economic growth strategy, urging businesses to invest more into researching new technologies. 

Although Japan has a significant global technological position and is a largely independent IT creator that ranks highly among the developed nations, the technology they plan to use comes from Palantir Technologies, an American company.

A recent increase in equipment that can be diverted to military use, such as drones, is making it a challenge for Japan to track the distribution of related parts and components. The government also faces a need to collect and analyze a huge volume of data over the novel coronavirus.

The system developed by Palantir integrates and analyses data scattered throughout a huge organisation in a short period of time. Its clients include major US and European financial institutions, and such US government organisations as the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Department and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Palantir is working with the United States and European countries, including the United Kingdom, to analyse Coronavirus infection routes and stocks of medical goods.

Palantir's technology "can help resolve national issues," Koichi Narasaki, chief executive officer of the US company's Japanese unit, said. Collecting and analysing data on serious global challenges through conventional methods would take years, and a national crisis could occur before the completion of the work, signaling Palantir's readiness to call on Japanese government agencies to adopt its AI-based big data analysis system early.

Narasaki also indicated that Palantir is keen to make contributions to the government on macroeconomic and fiscal policies, claiming that the company never looks at sensitive data of its customers.

Both AI and Human Processors 

Removing humans from workflows that only involve the processing of structure data does not mean that humans are obsolete. There are many business decisions that depend on more than just structured data. Vision statements, company strategies, corporate values, market dynamics all are examples of information that is only available in our minds and transmitted through culture and other forms of non-digital communication.

This kind of information is inaccessible to AI and extremely relevant to business decisions.
