entitled AI and the Digital Society: Meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, in the “AI and Education: Future work” session.
Co-hosted by Chatham House (Royal Institute of International Affairs) of the United Kingdom and Mitsubishi UFJ Research and
Consulting, the conference will take place on November 5, 2019 in Tokyo.  Admission is free of charge and the conference will be
conducted in English.


“Over the last ten years, advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence, information and communications technology,
advanced automation and additive manufacturing has led to the perception that the world is entering the ‘fourth industrial revolution’.

In Japan in particular, the use of AI, robots and Internet of Things have become a key component of the Abe government’s economic
vision for the future. Its blueprint for ‘Society 5.0’, sees the evolution of a ‘super smart’ society that uses cutting edge technology to solve
economic and social problems, resulting in greater productivity and sustainability in a variety of fields, from healthcare to mobility
and infrastructure.
While much analysis has been done on the impacts of these technological innovations on advanced economies, there is relatively less
discussion on how these advances can help to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in low and middle-income countries.

This conference will bring together key experts from the UK, Japan and elsewhere in Asia to share learning, expertise and insights on
how digital, particularly artificial intelligence technologies, can support meeting the SDGs.”

“AI and Education: Future work” will be moderated by Dr. Champa Patel, Head, Asia-Pacific Programme, Chatham House.  Yamawaki will
participate in a panel discussion with Mr. Sherif El-Sayed Ali, Director of Partnerships, AI for Good.
