OpenAI Announces Tokyo office, Launches GPT-4 Model for the Japanese Language

OpenAI has bolstered its expansion to Japan, announcing a new Tokyo hub and plans for a GPT-4 model optimized for the Japanese language.

The ChatGPT-maker already has a first international office in London opened last year, followed by its inaugural European Union (EU) office in Dublin a few months later.

Tokyo will represent OpenAI’s first office in Asia and fourth globally (including its San Francisco HQ).

Japan is positioned prominently in the AI revolution, most recently as the G7 chair and President of the G7’s Hiroshima AI Process, an initiative centered around AI governance and pushing for safe and trustworthy AI.

OpenAI Japan will be led by Tadao Nagasaki, who joins the company from Amazon Web Services (AWS), where he headed up Amazon’s cloud computing subsidiary in the region for the past 12 years.
