Interviewed by Stephen Ibaraki, ACM


On June 20th, 2019.  I was interviewed by Stephen Ibaraki, the founder of UN ITU AI for Good Global Summit.

I talked about my recent interview with Prof. Yoshua Bengio, MILA and how I think about the AGI and the future of AI.

Stephen also asked me about my childhood as well as higher education I had among Japan, US and UK and how I adapt to cultural differences between Japan and the West.

I also talked about my current cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary projects on social impact of AI and the potential of AI for Good.  I’ve been working for some different collaborative projects in US and UK such as CFI, University of Cambridge, Columbia University and Harvard Berkman Klein Center for the Internet & Society.  Finally I talk about the future work.

After all, it became long interview over 40 minutes but I really enjoyed talking with Stephen and I really appreciate his great support!!
