Creating Artificial Intelligence That Will Become a Gift for the Next Generation

Towards a general purpose artificial intelligence that will pioneer the unknown.

The human brain can come up with creative solutions even in unfamiliar situations. This is probably because it can flexibly combine knowledge accumulated through experience.

To build such general-purpose intelligence, we at Dwango Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are exploring the essence of intelligence from a theoretical approach and the Whole Bbrain Aarchitecture approach.

Such artificial intelligence will not only creatively solve the problems residing in our society, but also support its continuous development.
