 "Artificial Intelligence = AI" is hot topic. Lecture started from the question "Is AI "Science" or "technology"? Then Dr. Ema introduced how and where AI is being used, how AI can influence human and concerns. She pointed out linkage with "ethics" and "law".
 She also mentioned how "AI" would give impact on employment in the future. When technology is introduced into our work, we have to think about organizational culture and how to work. She made a point that we have to clarify " what society we want to live" and use AI, after all. Students asked many questions such as rights of AI, how to distinguish AI from human, when robot like Doraemon will appear etc. from the venue and internet.
