Japan Govt Adopts High-Tech "Super City" Bill

   Tokyo, June 7 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government on Friday adopted a bill to realize its "super city" initiative to create cities utilizing artificial intelligence, big data and other advanced technologies.
   In such cities, autonomous driving, cashless payments, goods delivery by drone and novel services using sophisticated technologies will be introduced in an integrated manner.
   Initially, the government planned to submit to the Diet, the country's parliament, the bill to revise the national strategic special zone law by the end of March.
   But it could not do so because of difficulty obtaining support from the Cabinet Legislation Bureau for related deregulations.
   The bill is unlikely pass the Diet before the end of the ongoing ordinary session, set for June 26.
