Hitomi

Hi, I'm Hitomi. I'm a UX designer/front-end dev/entrepreneur from Boston, born in Japan but raised in the US! I started this group because I didn't know a lot of people, and wanted to find designer friends in Tokyo. I think it'd be awesome to do some team-based creativity stuff, as I've had some amazing experiences at some meetups back at home in Boston. I speak both English and Japanese, so if you need help with anything in Tokyo, feel free to reach out. :)

Mike

Hi I'm Mike. I'm a Designer from California and I recently moved to Tokyo to work, eat and play. But mostly eat. I'm still learning Japanese and in "tourist" mode for being new to living in Japan. I love exploring and eating. Did I mention food? I pretty much came back to Japan for the food. Design and stuff is just something for me to do in between meals.

Future and the Arts: AI, Robotics, Cities, Life - How Humanity Will Live Tomorrow
What Is True Affluence, What Is It to Be Human, What Is Life?

Advances in technology over the past few years are now starting to have a significant impact on various aspects of our lives. It is said that not too far in the future, human beings will be entrusting many of their decisions to AI (artificial intelligence) which will then supersede human intelligence; the advent of “singularity” will potentially usher in enormous changes to our society and lifestyles. Another development, that of blockchain technology, looks set to build new levels of trust and value into our social systems, while advances in biotechnology will have a major impact on food, medicine, and the environment. It is also possible that one day, we humans will be able to extend our physical functions, and enjoy longer life spans. The effect of such changes may not be necessarily and universally positive, yet surely we need to at least acquire a vision of what life may look like in the next 20-30 years, and ponder the possibilities of that new world. Doing so will also spark fundamental questions about the nature of affluence and of being human, and what constitutes life.
