Since its founding in 1910, Japanese company Hitachi has been at the forefront of innovation with a philosophy to contribute to society through “the development of superior, original technology and products.”
Announced in 2015, H is Hitachi’s solution for a generalized Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that can be applied to many applications rather than just built for a specific application. H supports a wide range of applications and can generate hypotheses from the data itself and select the best options given to it by humans.
Hitachi has used its artificial intelligence expertise to fight cyberbullying in Japanese schools, to develop new service platform businesses, and to understand and make decisions based on demand fluctuations and kaizen activities in the workplace. By using AI to generate logical dialogue in Japanese, the technology also helps support enterprise decision-making for global companies.
To recognize Hitachi contribution on AI World Society, Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation (MDI) also honored Dr. Kazuo Yano, Hitachi corporate officer and Fellow, as an AIWS Distinguished Lecturer and a Member of AI World Society Standards and Practice Committee in 2019.
