Sunday’s Yomiuri gave top coverage to the disclosure by several GOJ sources that the government plans to launch a system in FY2024 using artificial intelligence to detect and track unidentified vessels around the Japanese archipelago. Imagery collected by intelligence satellites will be analyzed by artificial intelligence, which can process large volumes of data to pinpoint and identify multiple suspicious ships instantly. The GOJ is hoping that the mechanism will enable the Japan Coast Guard to respond faster to intrusions by Chinese patrol boats into Japanese territory around the Senkakus and rampant illegal fishing involving North Korean trawlers in the Sea of Japan.
