At this meeting, Prof. Hiroi and Dr. Koji Fukuda (Chief Researcher at Hitachi’s Kyoto University Laboratory) reported their joint research on AI-based social visions and policy proposals. They also discussed the work being conducted by the National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP) and trends in information technology that use AI.
Study reports were also presented by the Science and Technology Bureau of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and the Technology Strategy Office of Research and Development Group, Hitachi, Ltd. Participants actively provided their opinions about these reports.
