“Humans, Responding to the Digital Era: Body, Sensibility and Intelligence"
Humans are defined as "the animal that can think, use languages, make and use tools, and live together in a society." Since humans became social beings living in groups, they have amplified their intelligence, activated desires, and finally applied artificial intelligence(AI) into things. In addition, they have pushed the whole world into the three “W”s(World Wide Web) and put them in the Digital Era(IoT).
Klaus Schwab argues that the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be able to change not only human life styles, but, to some extent, even human identities.
It is time to seriously consider countermeasures in the present digital era.
So we would like to invite you to the conference and discuss the potentials and risks of AI, and the ways humans and technology coexist to cope with rapid IT changes in society.
We also provide graduate sessions and general sessions, several of which will be in English. Please join us!
Thank you so much indeed.
