After the next AI revolution, what kind of future is waiting for us?

Due to the remarkable growth of the "AI development" industry, not only engineers in the field, but a variety of different industries are beginning to take an interest in "Industry update with AI technologies". To pursue future possibilities for AI development, we will be holding a meetup (#2) with "Animal-AI Olympics" (AAO) as the main theme, focusing on recreating animal cognition.
