Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Toyohashi Forum 2023Evolution to Toyohashi, a City of Future Verification Toyohashi Science Core
Outline of the event
- What is the Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference?
- It is a place where researchers, large corporations, small factories, and venture companies, regardless of their field or industry, can fuse their knowledge and technology through discussion, identify new research themes and issues that humanity needs to face, and promote research together.
We will continue to hold the "Super Interdisciplinary Conference" in Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture, in FY2022. Last year, 135 people from Toyohashi city and beyond, including companies, venture companies, and researchers, gathered at the site, and more than 40 collaborative project proposals were generated, transcending positions. This year, in addition to Toyohashi University of Technology, Aichi University, and Toyohashi University of Creation, universities and research institutes in the surrounding area that focus on medical-engineering collaboration, manufacturing companies in the Higashimikawa area, and companies in the agricultural and food fields where the region is strong will gather to set up more collaboration than last year. Let us examine together how the future should be from here in Toyohashi.

Keynote Speech] Smart Sensor Development and Social Implementation through Taiki Style Open InnovationGenerative AI will dramatically change our society. While the development of semiconductor technology for generative AI has recently become a central development issue, new innovations for generative AI are also underway in sensor technology. We believe that the fusion of sensor technology and semiconductor integrated circuit technology will create a market for generative AI. In this presentation, I will introduce the background of the world's first bio-image sensor developed by the fusion of biosensor technology and CMOS technology, as well as the development and social implementation of smart sensors that are currently being promoted through "Taiki" type open innovation.
