  • Pandemics and the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information: Issues concerning the Restriction on the Right to Privacy in Emergencies

    Fumio Shimpo

    Japanese Society and Culture  No.5 2023.03

    Research paper (scientific journal), Single Work, Lead author, Accepted,  ISSN  2434-1738

     View Summary

    This article focuses on issues which need to be considered in aiming to ensure both the effectiveness of infectious disease control measures and the protection of the right to privacy from the following perspectives.
     (1) Issues regarding the restriction of the right to privacy in emergency situations, including (i) the types of measures taken in emergency situations and issues with respect to the restriction of the right to privacy in emergency situations, (ii) the normalisation, constancy and fixation of exceptional measures in emergency situations, (iii) dual-use and use for purposes different from those originally intended, (iv) acquisition of secondary information and the emergence of unexpected situations (e.g. the applicability of "body temperature" to special care-required personal information and the acquisition of secondary information associated with the measurement of body temperature, and examples of mission creep); and (5) the need to respond to over-reaction without recognising the urgency of the situation.
     (2) Issues concerning privacy in countermeasures against infectious diseases, including (i) the procedures for requesting and disclosing personal information and privacy, (ii) the obligation to cooperate in active epidemiological investigations of specific patients and others based on the amended Infectious Diseases Control Act and restrictions on the right to privacy, (iii) the applicability of personal information concerning the acceptance of tests and other examinations as special care-required personal information, and (iv) the need to respond to over-reaction without recognising the urgency of the situation. (ii) the necessity of the implementation of information security management measures in relation to infectious disease countermeasures.
     (3) Issues concerning the use of technology for the purpose of countermeasures against infectious diseases and privacy, including (i) the use of GPS location information, (ii) considerations required to resolve concerns in the introduction and spread of contact confirmation applications, (iii) the acquisition of biometric information and the use of biometrics, and (iv) sewage epidemiological surveys and privacy (privacy of drainage).

     View Summary

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the legal implications of cybernetic avatars (CA), which will be used in our daily life as remotely operated and autonomous robots. Such legal aspects consider the research, development, and use of 'cyber-physical systems (CPS)', which combine 'cyber' and 'physical' elements, and are referred to as the ‘avatar law’. The legal issues regarding CA need to be considered from the same perspective not only in Japan but also internationally.

     View Summary

    In order to make use of the response to the new the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) for pandemic countermeasures due to infectious diseases that may have a serious impact on the lives and health of the people, which may occur in the future, the handling of personal information and the protection of privacy necessary to ensure the effectiveness of countermeasures against infectious diseases will be
    examined. This paper intends to establish to comprehensively understand the systems for the collection and publication of information related to infectious diseases based on the Infectious Diseases Control Law, and to clarify the structure and issues of the current systems and mechanisms for the collection and management of information on infected persons.

     View Summary

    Since the mid-2010’s, the debate surrounding AI ethics has become more realistic rather than hypothetical as a futuristic projection of the world of science fiction. A variety of organizations has published AI ethics principles, including international organizations, governmental agencies, academic bodies, various private organizations and religious organizations. As of 2022, the values deemed important have seen tentative agreement, and the discussion has shifted to AI governance, which is an initiative to implement these principles. As physical robots and humanoids will be used in various real-world situations in the future, ethical issues which were not major problems with AI as a system will become more apparent. However, on the current discussion of AI ethical principles, may we say that the world shares the same values, or should we share the same values?
    In a survey of AI principles across 40 companies in Japan, Europe, North America and Asia, there were clear idiosyncrasies within the Japanese principles. Three of the items adopted by Japanese companies which are distinctive will be discussed here; i) Human-Centric, ii) communication and, iii) Human Resources Development.

     View Summary

    Research subjects are expected to expand to those associated with "new services" and "changes in social infrastructures" for which artificial intelligence (AI) is utilized. In order to predict the possible effects of rapid technical development on society and discuss social systems, it is desirable to set up evaluation axes from interdisciplinary and diversified standpoints. In Japan, however, no one has attempted to systematically study the effects of AI and robotics on society, and preparations for social system construction in anticipation of technical development, such as new laws, economic systems, and management strategies, are not enough.

    Amid the third AI boom, certain new problems occurring at the points of contact between technology and society, such as technical unemployment, have been emphasized. AI and robotics are highly versatile, and the existing social frameworks and rules established by humans do not necessarily conform to social frameworks and rules based on the use and application of AI and robotics. While they contain many potential issues, it is difficult to briefly predict problems that may occur in the future. Therefore, a "society where information technology and humans fit together" can be considered a culture in which problems and risks that are expected to occur can be avoided, and the sense of values desired is reflected.

    The purpose of this study is to collaboratively create how future technology and society should be through dialogue between researchers in the following fields: AI and robotics, law, ethics, economics and management relating to social systems, and various stakeholders, such as Japanese companies leading the use and application of AI and robotics. In addition, we will aim to suggest systems necessary to build cutting-edge rules and social infrastructures as a global hub.
