Special Lecture by Mr. Takeshi Natsuno

Today, May 22nd 2014, from 13:00 to 14:30 we welcomed Professor Takeshi Natsuno for a special lecture called “Transforming Society through IT and the future of Japan”.

Mr. Natsuno talked about the 3 revolutions brought by I.T. and how society has changed thanks to them. He also referenced some cases where big Japanese enterprises and Government offices are not completely catching up with these changes, and how things are going go be from now on.

Towards the end of the lecture, focusing on the idea of “Do not become a person who depends on enterprises”, shared a strong message with our students who are preparing for job hunting.

There were also many questions about Machine Learning, however, using Yahoo’s Search for 3.11 as an example, he showed a very interesting use case of Information Analysis.
