AI Can Make RI Chaotic, Kominfo Regulates So Tech Isn’t Haphazard – 6 hours ago


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo) is discussing and will issue a circular on ethical guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in early December 2023.

However, this circular letter is not specific for the 2024 election campaign. This was revealed by Deputy Minister of Communication and Information Nezar Patria during the Kominfo Gathering in Jakarta.

He said the circular would only contain ethical guidelines for using AI for players in the industry, such as developers and users of AI technology.


This letter will refer to values, for example, transparency, inclusiveness and non-discrimination.

“We don’t have any specifics for the campaign yet,” said Nezar. “Because what we are trying to regulate here is actually generative AI,” he added.

He further explained that generative AI is in the form of applications that are used based on algorithms compiled by AI. And can create something new by combining sound and images. This combination has the potential to give rise to misinformation and disinformation if released in the public domain.

“We have found several, for example, generative AI products that have appeared on social media platforms. We recommend that AI users with positive aims prioritize the principle of transparency,” he said.

Nezar said this AI ethics guide circular is a reference for the use of AI. If there is a violation of the use of this technology, it will enter the realm of law.

“This circular letter is actually more of an ethical reference. But if this AI product enters the public domain, for example on social media and it brings a kind of information chaos or it also has the potential to violate the law and other things like that, then it will enter the realm of law,” explained Nerza.

“Later there will be a legal process that will take place there.” he concluded.
