Japan is just beginning a multiple decade effort to transform its economy towards artificial intelligence. But its education sector is way way behind in its ability to provide the large numbers of AI knowledgeable workers that future economy will need.

Can your company supply AI education tools, models, software or products to Japans education sector? 

Japan is about to spend big on AI for the education sector. Every sector of the economy from autonomous driving to the hospital sector will need AI knowledgeable workers, as well as a fair number of AI experts, to bring AI products, services and technologies into regular use as the economy transforms. Elementary and high schools, universities, as well as professional providers and trainers for specialized disciplines in Japan will all be looking for and implementing AI solutions. Japan is just beginning this total transformation of its education sector now.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies of all kinds, especially those in the education sector, the AI sector, or those with unique experiences bringing technical education to specialized disciplines in industrial sectors and seeking to participate in Japan’s AI transformation.

In 40 minutes from your desk, you will discover:

  • How Japan is planning to transform its educational sector to include AI everywhere possible
  • How your firm can think about introducing its own AI technologies, tools and education/training solutions to various educational institutions in Japan ranging from schools and universities to corporations
  • What your firm should know if education or AI or training solutions are part of the offerings of your company
  • Tips to help your firm get involved in this industry (it’s still very much in its infancy!)
