Dr. Michio Okada who is a professor of Toyohashi University of Technology. He is known as the father of the "weak robot" concept as for architecting people's embodiment. He'll illustrate that concept on his presentation and we'll find that we should consider our new "weak IA" way of thinking.
Dr. Koichiro Eto of AIST who is known as a media artist and the organizer of Nico-nico Gakkai beta (Nico-nico conference beta), which is a new challenge of academic conference. He has been studied on collective intelligence such as Wiki and the pattern languages. On the presentation, he'll give us his journey on fighting with collective intelligence.
We'll have a panel discussion after the keynote. We invited a guest panel, Mr. Kei Wakabayashi who is the editor in chief of the WIRED Japan edition. Through the discussion between the keynote speakers and Mr. Wakabayashi, we'd like to develop a new IA and an approach to it.
