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

Japan is facing an aging society with a declining birthrate. The shortage of nursing care and welfare workers has created a mountain of problems that are beginning to be felt everywhere. The problems we see today are just the tip of the iceberg, and will become even more serious as the average life expectancy continues to increase in modern society. It is a critical mission of mankind to create a system that allows both caregivers and those who need care to live out their lives in good health. In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about care and welfare reform based on AI, IoT, sensor technology, etc. as a solution to this problem, but can these technologies really be the savior?
In this session, ventures that develop AI, excretion sensors, and sleep tech that teach skilled nursing care know-how will gather to discuss the future of nursing care and welfare.
This session will be moderated by Yukihiro Maru, Representative Director and Global CEO of Liverness, Inc.

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).

Mr. Yoshimi Ui

In 2011, while a student at the Chiba Institute of Technology, he founded aba Inc. and became its president. When he was in junior high school, his grandmother developed depression and he became a caregiver. The desire to reduce the burden on caregivers led him to the development of robots to support caregivers. After witnessing the horrific conditions at a special care home for the elderly where caregivers were forced to help patients to eliminate their waste, he decided to commercialize "Helppad," an elimination sensor that uses an odor sensor to detect the presence of waste.

He has been a one-man sales force for 30 companies, mainly large corporations, and has improved the sleep of many employees at those companies. In addition, he is working to spread "sleep education" in schools and collaborating with many institutions to help students learn about sleep, which is an important wisdom for living. We aim to create a world where each individual can design and enjoy sleep, one of the three major needs, in the same way that people today enjoy a meal at a restaurant. Ideal sleeping time: 7 hours and 30 minutes
