Tuesday August 1st 2017

In the age of ‘fake news’, how can we process information responsibly on the internet?

Thanks to the rapid development of social network services (SNS), we live in an age in which we can easily share and receive information that meets our needs and interests. However, with this comes the danger of only ever seeing information and opinions that conforms with our own views – a phenomenon that is happening across the world.

Clad yourself in technology and become superhuman! Dynamic growth motion assistance technology

Through the skillful utilization of machinery or artificial intelligence, a world in which we can easily transform into superhumans is rapidly approaching. Wouldn’t it be boring, though, if we all used the same technology, and all became the same superhumans? I am researching assistive motion technologies that will preserve our individuality and foster a sense of achievement and purpose. I’d like everyone to think about where to draw the line between the things we wish to do by ourselves, and the things we do with the help of machines and AI.

The eye as window to the mind: What smart eyewear can tell us about our behaviour

Beginning with trials to detect the amount people read on a daily basis, and continuing with an exploration of how to improve our attention spans and concentration in our daily lives, research into the applications of smart glasses in recent years has been progressing. This talk will cover the issues of using smart glasses to detect changes in our states of mind.

Scientist Talk [Making the Ideal Tomato: How Far Can We Go?]<Venue: Miraikan> New
開催期間:2017-08-27(Sun)

Lots of fruits and vegetables are sold at supermarkets. We take note not just of the size and shape of produce, but whether or not fruits and vegetables are tasty and healthy. But the fruits and vegetables we can buy today have not always been the same. Modern fruits and vegetables are the result of a long history of selective breeding – artificial production.

This scientist talk focuses on tomatoes, and gives us a chance to look back over the history of selective breeding, as well as to consider the future role of genetic modification in such efforts. By utilising the strengths of genetic modification, it is expected that we will be able to efficiently create excellent produce in the not too distant future.

Date: Sunday 27th August 2017

Time: 14:30 – 16:00

Venue: Miraikan, 5F, Small Studio

Age range: All ages welcome (content suited for junior high school students and older)

Capacity: Approximately 40 – extra standing room available in event of event being fully booked

Admission: Entrance fee only
