4th JST-NSF-DATAIA International Joint Symposium Cutting Edge of AI Research ~ To Realize Society 5.0 / Smart and Connected Communities ~

4th JST-NSF-DATAIA International Joint Symposium Cutting Edge of AI Research ~ To Realize Society 5.0 / Smart and Connected Communities ~

Outline

In Japan, "AI Strategy 2019" was announced in June by Council for Integrated Innovation Strategy. In the United States, the AI strategy is being examined based on the announcement of “American AI Initiative” as a presidential decree. Nowadays, AI research is attracting increasing attention toward the realization of Society 5.0 (Smart and Connected Communities) and the resolution of social issues.
This symposium will focus on research and development of next-generation AI technology, which contributes to realizing Society 5.0 and feature lectures on the achievements by top-level researchers from Japan, the United States, and France. Panel discussions will also be held on future visions, international cooperation and future issues, in order to realize Society 5.0. We look forward to your active participation.
*We will arrange simultaneous interpretation on the day.
