Announcing the “AI Human Resource Development Seminar”:
Jointly developed with Hokkaido University
~Total support for the development of human resources capable of unlocking the potential AI

AI Tokyo Laboratory Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Muneharu Kitade), a group company of Satudora Holdings Co., Ltd. (Tokyo Stock Exchange Securities Code: 3544 Headquarters: President, Hokkaido Sapporo City, President: Hiroki Toyama) proudly announces a corporate “AI Human Resource Development Seminar” program in conjunction with Hokkaido University Harmonious Systems Engineering Laboratory (Professor Hidenori Kawamura).

■Background

While expectations are high for AI (artificial intelligence) to create great strides in promoting productivity in the corporate workplace and bring better ways of approaching operations, these advancements will undoubtedly have a significant impact on human resources. Focus is now on securing and training a new class of workers, dubbed the “new collar”, who are able to fully utilize these new technologies. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be a shortage of 480,000 in this new area. *1

Among our many clients, there have been many requests to secure and nurture talented people who possess a correct understand of AI and are able to utilize advanced technology according to their strategies and hurdles.

With these issues in mind, it was only natural for Hokkaido University’s Harmonious Systems Engineering Laboratory, which continues to spearhead research into AI research and human resources development from 1965 in a bid to support the creation of a “new collar” workforce, to collaborate with TOKYO AI LAB, which has significant experience in utilizing AI to solve productivity hurdles that burden modern corporations. We are excited to announce that the fruits of this collaboration are now ready to see the light of day. After many trials and tests, we proudly announce the launch of a new service; a curriculum dubbed the “AI Human Resource Development Course”.
