Realization of a Smart Society by Applying Artificial Intelligence Technologies

Project overview

Project period: FY2018 to FY2022, FY2022 budget: JPY 1.375 billion
PL: TSUJII Junichi (Director, Artificial Intelligence Research Center, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)
KAWAKAMI Takayoshi (Partner/Managing Director, Industrial Growth Platform, Inc.)

This project concerns the conduct of research and development to promote the social implementation of artificial intelligence technologies in the three high-focus areas of the strategy of artificial intelligence technologies of productivity; health, medical care, and welfare; and mobility.

This project specifically concentrates on research, development, and demonstration for the realization of a smart society combining cyber- and physical space with the use of artificial intelligence modules and data-acquisition sensor technologies that have been researched, developed, and deployed so far, and also applying research and development infrastructures.
