AGU hosts Asahi Education Forum on AI and the Future of Universities

CATEGORY

On December 15, 2018, AGU hosted the Asahi Education Forum 2018, part of a series of symposia in conjunction with 15 leading universities in Japan. The forum discussed how artificial intelligence (AI) would impact society and how the humanities as a discipline would make a difference in this new era. Having established the Singularity Institute in 2018, AGU has led the research in Japan on artificial intelligence and the singularity.

Here is the gist of the forum in an excerpt in English from a news article that appeared in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper on January 18, 2019.
