Comment by Chief Enterprise Strategy Officer Kazutoshi Okada

With the accelerating digital transformation (DX) in companies and cross-company partnerships, a society where people and AI coexist has arrived. “Seeing a world where AI and computers replace mechanical jobs, and human beings can focus on interacting with one another” is the desire that has strengthened my involvement in the AI business over the years. Companies and organizations in many fields, from finance and manufacturing to local government and education, can improve their time performance by using AI, which will make Japan globally competitive. Achieving this will require innovation in infrastructure and AI model intelligence, creating high-added value.
AI inside, which has been developing and commercializing products around AI as elemental technology, is making a groundbreaking AI platform and providing core technologies to the world on the way to a world where AI is seen as something for everyone to create and use. We intend to step up our promotion of AI use, mainly by enterprise corporations in each industry, helping to achieve “Smart X” that will bring intelligence to industries of all kinds.
