Japanese Civilization Institute 12th Symposium

Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) surpass human intelligence?!

Google and Facebook are competing ruthlessly in developing AI. With the evolution of deep learning, computers that can think like humans are likely to emerge in the future. As a result, our lives will change drastically in various areas, including politics, economics, education, the medical world and employment.
When AI surpasses human intelligence, what kind of future are we looking at?! Where is Japan positioned in the world’s research standard of AI? Can the Japanese industry survive?
We will have Mr. Yutaka Matsuo, Japan’s leading AI researcher who serves as associate professor at the University of Tokyo, talk thoroughly on the topic.
