On 26 February a unique panel of thought leaders including five Nobel Laureates met at Tokyo International Forum to discuss challenges and opportunities in light of the new frontiers of human and artificial intelligence.
A full program of inspiring lectures and panels took place around the theme 'The Future of Intelligence'. Many questions were raised such as: What will the future of intelligence be? What challenges do our societies face from science and technology? What sorts of intelligence do we need to meet future challenges? Nicole Dewandre from the Joint Research Center at the European Commission, Professor Takeo Kanade from Carnegie Mellon University, and Professor Stuart Russell from University of California, Berkeley, were three of around 25 scientists and experts participating from all over the world. Sessions were followed by audience questions, creating an opportunity for attendees and experts to connect and share knowledge.
This free whole-day conference brought together Nobel Laureates, key opinion leaders, policy makers, students, researchers and the general public, who joined in an inspiring event, moving science and society closer together.
Attending Nobel Laureates were Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016, Edvard I. Moser, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2014, Eric S. Maskin, Prize in Economic Sciences 2007, George F. Smoot, Nobel Prize in Physics 2006 and Susumu Tonegawa, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1987.
