The Second JSPS-DFG Round Table on “Cooperative Technology in future: Cognitive Technical Systems”

Held on 8-10 February at JSPS’s Tokyo Office, this second JSPS-DFG Round Table” was co-hosted by JSPS and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

This series of symposiums is aimed at strengthening ties between the Japanese and German scientific communities through a program of presentations and discussions on a topic of cutting-edge research, while seeding joint research with an eye to the future.  The first Round Table was held in 2008 in Germany on the theme “Climate Change.”

To this second Round Table on “Cooperative Technology in future: Cognitive Technical Systems,” were invited a total of 31 researchers in related fields from Japan and Germany. Their dialogue was advanced through five sessions: “Vision and Interaction,” “Space and Action,” “Language and Semantics,” “Knowledge and Reasoning,” and “Social Interactions.”

On the last day, the participants visited the Brain Science Institute at Riken and the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, and Information and Robot Technology Initiative Center at the University of Tokyo, where they observed cutting-edge research in labs related to the Round Table’s theme and engaged in lively Q&A sessions.
