The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

With the rapid changes in technology, such as robots and artificial intelligence, opportunities for humans to play an active role are changing. For example, teleworkers using robots to participate in the workplace and power-assistive suits to lighten the workload of heavy laborers are beginning to be implemented in society in ways that were difficult not long ago. How will the concept of social participation change with the use of technology? Mr. Yasutaka Kawamura, President and CEO of Yoshinoya Holdings, which operates 3,481 stores worldwide and continues to employ many people in the service industry; Mr. Yoshinoya develops and supplies OriHime, a remote-controlled robot used for telework and distance education, and a communication device for physically disabled patients. OriHime is a remote-controlled robot that can be used for telework and distance education, as well as a communication device for physically disabled patients. The moderator will be Yukihiro Maru, Group CEO and Representative Director of LIVERNESS Co.

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).
