Event Details

On behalf of Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., we would like to invite you to our Fujitsu Laboratories Advanced Technology Symposium.


The theme of the event is "Make AI Trustworthy! Explainable and Ethical AI for Everyone". From autonomous vehicles to clinical diagnosis systems, AI technologies are increasingly making far-reaching decisions on our behalf.


The classic sense-decision-action loop is being replaced by AI technologies where there is exponential speedup of action.  However, for society at large to have confidence in the accuracy and fairness of these systems, it is critical that they be transparent, free from bias and the causality between input and action be understood in easily explainable terms.  This requires the development of new explainable AI models that maintain consistency, performance and accuracy.  Another related and equally important topic is on the ethics of AI systems.  AI models are only as good as the training data used to build them and the human operators deploying them.  For AI systems to gain trust and wide spread adoption it is essential that they operate under social rules surrounding ethics and morality.


The symposium will explore these topics in greater detail thru keynotes and panel sessions.  You will also have an opportunity to meet Fujitsu management, researchers and fellow thought leaders from Silicon Valley’s rich innovation ecosystem. It’s an event you won’t want to miss.
