  • 2nd JST-ANR Joint Symposium: Symbiotic Interaction 2019

Symposium Overview

The integration of cyberspace with the real world is rapidly advancing based on improvements in artificial intelligence and the internet of things, which are penetrating our society. We aim to create and develop core information technologies that realize advanced interaction designs for a symbiotic society consisting of humans, augmented humans, connected things, ambient intelligence, internet of wisdoms, etc. In 2017, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) adopted “Creation and development of core technologies interfacing human and information environments (symbiotic interaction)" as a field for its core CREST research program. Then, based on a Framework Agreement between JST and Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) concluded in December 2017, we held open calls for joint Japan-France research proposals in 2018 and 2019. Two joint proposals were selected within the calls, and research on each will be conducted over a period of five-and-a-half years. In this symposium we will report on the progress of CREST symbiotic interaction research, with a focus on research by the Japan-France joint teams. Distigished researchers in the field are also invited to give keynote speach on relevant research trends and outlook for the future society. The event is a follow-up to the first one held in Paris last year, and we hope that it will continue to serve as a venue for strengthening Japan-France research cooperation in this exciting field. We welcome participants who are passionate about symbiotic interaction research and interaction with the eminent researchers in this field.
