Outline

This project realizes a SNS platform called “hyper democracy” where softwaer agents and human collaborately make democratic decisions. Here, agents who work on behalf of human are allocated into SNS distributedly, and support consensus making process (social multiagent system). These agens protect users from the problems like flaming, fake news, etc., while supporing smarter consensus and group decision making.

Outline

When humans perform knowledge-intensive activities, such as fact-checking and decision support, they can use language to explain the processes and reasons behind their decisions. In this project, we explore a computational paradigm for explaining decision processes with natural language, in a manner analogous to that of humans. By building AI systems that support human judgments with interactive explanations and by employing methods from the humanities and social sciences to understand the prerequisites of “explanation as communication”, we also aim to formulate design principles for explainable AI.

Outline

This research establishes social information technologies that support diverse communication and decision-making while appropriately dealing with the potential threats posed by fake media (FM) generated by AI. We will establish FM generation technology, FM detection technology, and FM detoxification technology for fake media (FM) with various modality classified into three types. Furthermore, by utilizing these technologies, we will establish decision-making support technologies that support various decisions on SNS.

Outline

To promote a society where people can feel secure in receiving personalized support from AI systems, this interdisciplinary research integrating informatics, neurophysiology, and social psychology aims to establish fundamental technologies that allow users of recommender systems to explore recommendation behaviors. The goal is to provide human-centered, controllable, and transparent recommender systems that can be used sustainably by consumers or producers as a trusted social infrastructure.

Outline

Our project proposes a concept of Reliable Interventional (RI) AI Robotics where a medical profession could diagnose and treat a patient with AI and robots as well as conventional medical devices, sharing ambiguity points in the reliable suggestion from AI. We also develop “reliable” AI generic technologies and AI robot system equipped with the developed generic technologies. Aim of this project is to realize a framework and a practical model of “Reliable AI” in medical treatment by turning the ambiguity of AI’s judgment into advantage and utilizing the ambiguity effectively. Furthermore, while developing the medical robot system with the reliable AI, we address establishment of “Reliable AI” which is available on the site of medical treatment.
