Host Organization:Next Generation Artificial Intelligence Research Center


Towards the Next Generation of Intelligent Science


Next Generation Artificial Intelligence Research Center (AI Center) attempts to transcend the framework and limitations of current AI technology to construct a novel scheme of science and technology regarding human and artificial intelligence. It will be truly beneficial for humans, driving future society, industry, economy, culture and research. Based on the new scheme, the AI Center will also propose and realize a vision/design of the future society and contribute to advanced education of next leaders. In order to realize these, the AI Center is established as an inter-school research organization to unite all relevant disciplines of the University of Tokyo from science and technology to the humanities as well as external collaborations for powerful syntheses. As part of that activity, we decided to hold a series of symposiums to consider how artificial intelligence will tackle the various fields and issues in the world. Each symposium will be held with a theme, and the first one will be “Toward the Next Generation of Intelligent Science”, with the aim of informing you about what the big picture is for the AI Center. Those who will talk include Director of AI Center, Heads of the Department of Machine Intelligence, the Department of Dynamic Real-World Intelligence, the Department of Human AI, the Department of Intelligent Society, and the AI Center’s full-time faculty members who arrived this year. We will conduct it online due to the Coronavirus, but we hope that many of you will listen to it.
