Talk on “the future of AI & Robots” @IEEE Press Seminar

Great honored to talk about “the future of AI & Robots” @IEEE Press Seminar

After introducing “the complexity model of communication” as a theoretical framework for a deeper understanding of the social impact of AI, I demonstrate the Society 5.0 for SDGs within a Japanese context.

I investigate the opportunities and risks of AI from my ongoing four projects, “robot engagement”, “AI and global communication”, “Global AI Narratives and “Youth and AI” project.

To a brief summary of both theoretical and empirical approaches, AI could provide diversity and inclusion for the community well-being, however AI could also create new risks of exclusion and discrimination.

For the sustainability of human societies with AI, I give some suggestion which I call “Human First Innovation”, that is, human first approach, cross-discipline innovation and self-creation.

I hope this study could help to understand the complexity and dynamism on the process of the paradigm shift of a global community in the AI age.
