Artificial intelligence has proven over and over again to be crucial in the development and improvement of certain areas: in the medical-scientific field it proves to be of essential importance every day, as well as within the industrial sector. The proper and respectful use of this technology can lead to significant improvements.

Japan is currently facing a serious crisis: the population is shrinking year after year, and the 2023 birth rate has underscored the possibility of a particularly complex future. In the face of this severe reduction in the workforce needed to sustain the country, artificial intelligence plays a cardinal role.

From the implementation of AI cameras that check the quality of packaged goods to the use of applications to diagnose diseases and pests in crops, this technology is helping to support the country.
