In particular, the relevance of enhancement through collaboration between AI and humans to improve human performance will be discussed from the perspective of ELSI.

Non-clinical level internet use, multitasking and the brain
Excessive internet use and related IoT use have been noticed to be health problems in recent years. However, normal level of the usages are not investigated precisely yet.
The influence of these recent life habits on our brain function are reported from the perspective of motivation/ reward and attentional network circuitry assessed by MRI neuroimaging scans. As tentative conclusion, these life habits are considered to be health benefits as far as the level of the engagement is low to intermediate levels.

All participants are required to agree with the AIP Open Seminar Series Code of Conduct.
Please see the URL below.

RIKEN AIP will expect adherence to this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
