Research and Development Period
October 2018 to September 2021

Project Outline

We will investigate how science fiction (SF), which has drawn science and technology and the process of acceptance in the society in the form of a story, influences the development of artificial intelligence. Our project will survey literatures about the history of people's imagination including hope and anxiety about artificial intelligence technology. The project also organizes and visualizes discuss the relationships between AI, SF and society with writers, creators, editors, and science, engineering, and humanity researchers. The project also will illustrate the future visions as new design fiction that explain the process of social implementation on artificial intelligences and agent technologies by related people. With both surveys and creations, we want to propose a design method to the future society based on the recent possibilities and problems, and we hope to contribute to humankind about pioneering future technologies and societies.
