Human Symbiotic Robot & AI Technologies for Social Innovation

Societies are now faced with the challenges of a declining population and shrinking workforce due to the emerging demographic trends of falling birthrates and aging societies.  These social issues need to be addressed in order to maintain or improve our quality of life in the years ahead. Under these circumstances, Human Symbiotic Robot and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, which support improvement in productivity, services, and life in the human environment, are proposed as a potential solution. Building upon the history of research and development of these technologies, Dr. Osone will explore the advancement in Human Symbiotic Robot and AI technologies as a necessary part of our future society.
