The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019


Technologies that attempt to measure and visualize the human mind, such as facial expression analysis, stress assessment by heart rate, and pupil response analysis, have made remarkable progress and are expected to find applications in industry and education. The question of this session is how to connect the data acquired by these technologies to the solution of human-related issues. Understanding the mind and solving problems will require highly accurate data as well as the ability of experts in the mind to interpret what the data tells us. We will discuss the value that the fusion of mind research and technology will bring to human life in the future with researchers and up-and-coming startups.
We look forward to the participation of researchers of the mind who wish to expand their own research, as well as those in the technology field and companies who are looking for new challenges in the area of the mind.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
