Parallel Session 4
- Saturday 7, December
- Room#213, 1st floor, Faculty of Engineering Building #2
- Session Concept
- A data-driven, knowledge-intensive society that uses IoT, AI, robotics and other forms as its foundation is coming. To take such a large chance as a good opportunity and realize an inclusive society, we must consider what kind of “value” we create and how Big Data should be handled. Until now, the problem has been what kinds of “goods” to manufacture and how to manufacture them.
In the first session we would like to discuss in what way digital revolution instigates a revolution in the economy, as well as what type of system is required in society with digital revolution. Furthermore, we must consider how the new systems emerging from the digital revolution can help society to deliver goods and services to a broader spectrum of humanity, thereby achieving Goal 12 of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is “Responsible Consumption and Production,” to improve the quality of life of human beings.
In the second session, discussions on what a system where AI is embedded will look like in the healthcare and welfare area, and the current direction and problems to be solved in the future will take place. In the third session, discussion will take place more from the social science and humanities aspect, more specifically the economic, legal, policy and ethical aspect, the impact that digital revolution has on society based on the discussions concerning the direction and problems to be solved primarily from the advanced science and technology aspect in the fields of manufacturing and healthcare and welfare.

|10:00-12:00||IoT, AI and Hardware Industries (Value Creation: Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal 12 in SDGs))
Mitsuishi Mamoru, Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo
Jian Cao, Associate Vice President for Research, Northwestern University
Products have been the center of the value in the capital intensive society until now. An inclusive society is expected to be realized by promoting the ever progressing knowledge-intensive society. Creation of new values is necessary in such knowledge-intensive society with the use of data and its application indispensable to realize such a society. From these points of view, the latest technological trends of AI, IoT, Robotics and Big Data, its effect on the economy, how we consider the value creation including services, the relation with the mind and soul, as well as ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’ are discussed in this session.
|13:30-15:00||AI and Healthcare
Kwon Dong-Soo, Professor, KAIST, Korea
Sakuma Ichiro, Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo
Application of AI technology in medical area is becoming widely spread. For instance, improvement of effective and reliable medical image diagnosis by the assistance of AI is expected. The data obtained from the daily diagnosis is dealt as big data, and from where useful information is extracted automatically using AI. The feature of the AI embedded medical devices and systems, risks which should be considered, how it should be appropriately used, ethics and responsibility of the AI medical system are discussed.
|15:30-17:10||Social Science and Policy
Shiroyama Hideaki, Professor, Graduate School of Public Policy, The University of Tokyo
Ema Arisa, Project Assistant Professor, Institute for Future Initiatives, The University of Tokyo
After discussing about the applications of technologies in manufacturing and medical/health fields, crosscutting issues of governance of digital revolution will be discussed from social science perspectives. Crosscutting governance issues include ethics, changing works and lifestyles, competition among platformers, privacy, changing requirements for education and the future of global governance, etc.
|17:10-17:30||Summary of Digital Revolution
