Participants were given the opportunity to learn more about Japan's latest research into artificial intelligence (AI) technology and its real-world applications with a live Q&A session held during the event.
RIKEN-AIP was launched in 2016 as the research centre for the MEXT-AIP project which aims to develop and apply next-generation artificial intelligence technology to contribute to solutions for real-world problems, such as disaster resilience and healthcare for the elderly and to advance scientific research. It also conducts research on ethical, legal and social issues caused by the spread of AI technology and works to develop AI-related human resources.
