The Institute for AI and Beyond combines the research capabilities of the University of Tokyo and business incubation capabilities of SoftBank (SoftBank Corp, SoftBank Group Corp., Yahoo Japan Corp) to bring together the leading talent and knowledge of the world to develop an ecosystem for creating research-based joint venture opportunities and their social implementation. It promotes “basic research (mid to long-term)” and “applied research (‘high-cycle’ research)” by integrating research on artificial intelligence and other fields and will contribute to the creation of a better society in Japan and the rest of the world.
 
The Institute for AI and Beyond will launch its inaugural symposium, entitled “Living with AI, Going Beyond AI.” The symposium will explore the significance and impact of AI on society by asking such questions as meaning of “smarter” AI. It features distinguished guests, with different professional and academic backgrounds, who will discuss the future as well as the present of AI from a cross-interdisciplinary perspective.
