4月1日付けで東京大学大学院情報学環に「ヒューマンオーグメンテーション(人間拡張)学」(ソニー寄付講座)を開設しました。ヒューマンオーグメンテーション(Human Augmentation)とは暦本純一 (Jun Rekimoto) が提唱するコンセプトで、人間と一体化して能力を拡張させるテクノロジーを開拓してゆくものです。人間とテクノロジー・AIが一体化し、時間や空間の制約を超えて相互に能力を強化しあう IoA (Internet of Abilities:能力のインターネット)という未来社会基盤の構築を視野に入れ、最先端の研究を学問として体系化していきます。

東大全学学生を対象としたセミナーや一般公開のシンポジウムの開催、またヒューマンオーグメンテーションをテーマとしたサマースクールなどを企画しています。

We established a course "Human Augmentation (endowed chair by Sony)" on April 1st at the University of Tokyo Interfacult...y Initiative in Information Studies. Human Augmentation is a concept proposed by Prof. Jun Rekimoto, which aims at augmentation of human abilities with technology. Taking the perspective of building a future social infrastructure called IoA (Internet of Abilities) that human beings, technology and AI are integrated and mutually strengthening capabilities beyond the constraints of time and space, we will make a systematic study of the subject.

We are planning series of seminars for students, public symposiums and a summer school on Human Augmentation.
