In the JST Moonshot R&D Project (Goal 9), "Legal Principles of Decentralized Management" (proposed by Tatsuhiko Yamamoto, professor at Keio University), we discuss the benefits and challenges that arise from social implementation of personal AI from a legal perspective. It is analyzed from Personal AI is AI that manages personal data on behalf of the individual based on the individual's privacy preferences. This can be seen as a tool to back up the right to information self-determination (the right to control one's own information).

This research is a comparative study of personal information protection legislation in the EU, Germany, France, Switzerland, the United States, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and China. We asked report authors from each country to investigate how mechanisms for individual involvement (right to request deletion, right to access, consent, right to data portability) are stipulated in personal information protection laws. We examined the significance and challenges of the right to information self-determination, paying particular attention to the relationship between the Constitution and the Personal Information Protection Act.
