Riverness will sponsor the event.The 8th Main Meeting of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields(March 8-9, 2019 (Friday and Saturday)), within the "Evolution of Next Generation Robots and Humans through Higher Level Connections of Humans, Machines, and Space: The Shape of Social Implementation that is Emerging and Beyond" panel discussion, which brings together specialists in teleoperated robots, VR, and force haptic technology." (Session Partner: Sigmaxis Inc.)The event will be held at the following location.

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

With the development and integration of robotics, AI, sensors, teleoperation technologies, and space-sharing technologies such as VR and AR, the relationship between robots and humans is entering a new stage. In this session, we will discuss (1) the possibilities of utilizing advanced teleoperated robots and the issues involved in their social implementation, and (2) how people's lives will change as the sense of touch (haptics), following hearing and vision, transcends space and time and begins to connect with other senses. We will invite three panelists, a tele-operated robot platform developer, an engineer who is trying to implement VR in the medical field, and a specialist in haptic technology (real haptics), to discuss how our lives will change as "haptics" begin to be connected beyond space-time and time.

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).
