Living Robot Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Date City, Fukushima Prefecture, President: Yasuhiro Kawauchi, hereinafter Living Robot), Timbers Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Rintaro Hasegawa, hereinafter Timbers), Inc. We have teamed up with AcademiX, a student community jointly operated by Aerion (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Takumi Okuma, hereinafter Aerion) to launch a “co-creation project” to promote the social implementation of AI.
Together with AcademiX’s AI technology, create new solutions to on-site issues faced by companies
AcademiX is a community of AI engineers and students learning AI, founded by entrepreneurs Mr. Hasegawa and Mr. Okuma who graduated from the University of Tokyo. About 80 members with various majors, regardless of whether they are in the humanities or sciences, are participating from universities around the country, including the University of Tokyo. With the goal of raising Japan’s technological competitiveness again using the latest AI technology, we have decided to start a “co-creation project” for the social implementation of living robots and AI.
The first project is the development of AI-based solutions to solve the biggest problems in the nursing care industry: labor shortages and the dignity of care recipients. The goal is to reduce the burden on both caregivers and care recipients, create “comfort” using
technology, and improve the environment of nursing care sites. Living Robot will continue to aim for the social implementation of AI in order to solve various social problems, including the nursing care industry.
