Media Coverage


Interview (in Japanese): 僕たちは「シンギュラリティ」をどう迎えるのか? オクスフォードで出会った人工知能研究者・江口晃浩氏にインタビュー(橘宏樹『現役官僚の滞英日記 オクスフォード編』第5回) Mar 3, 2016

オクスフォードには学部・大学院合わせて約100人くらいの日本人学生が学んでいます。共通の友人の紹介で出会った江口晃浩君は、大変優秀でユニークな人物でした。人工知能、計算神経科学が専門の彼との会話から多くのことを学びましたので、その内容をインタビュー形式で掲載し、みなさんと共有したいと思います。僕自身は国費派遣の官僚(文系)というある種ありふれた、しかしある種特殊な学生ですが、他にはどういう日本人がどんな経緯でオクスフォードに来てどんなことを学んでいるのか、このインタビューでイメージしていただけるかと思います。...
