1st Symposium (2018)

On November 21-22, 2018 the German Centre for Research and Innovation Tokyo (DWIH Tokyo) and the Embassy of France in Japan conducted a Japanese-German-French trilateral symposium on "Artificial Intelligence-International Research and Applications". With a remarkable lineup of 63 distinguished speakers and over 300 participants from all three countries the symposium provided a forum for vibrant discussions on one of the most important topics of our time.


Today, AI has become an inseparable part of our lives in diverse fields such as healthcare, education, agriculture, crisis management and social life. Following the 1st symposium held in Tokyo in November 2018, this 2nd edition will provide an online venue,  for stakeholders from industry, academia and government to promote international exchanges on AI through presentations and discussions.

Joint Statement

Released on the occasion of the 1st German-French-Japanese Symposium on AI (November 2018)
The participants from the fields of research, funding organisations, policy and industry express their willingness to intensify their future collaboration in AI research and innovation. The cooperation will be carried out in the spirit of shared ethical values for the common good of our societies. At the centre of this collaboration we put a human-centred approach which will set common standards and a joint understanding of the potential of Artificial Intelligence.

We strongly support the creation and reinforcement of networks of individuals as well as networks of institutions. Based on the respective national strategies of Artificial Intelligence we see the need and the scope for intensified exchange of researchers, ideas and perspectives to face challenges in areas such as human resource development, health care, mobility, environment, connected industries, or disaster risk reduction.

The ultimate aim of Artificial Intelligence is to serve people and contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for the individual as well as for society as a whole.
