Title :  
 Solving Social Challenges with Mathematics and AI
Abstract :
Arithmer is an AI company that started at the Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Tokyo. Our research in modern mathematics and AI systems provide new solutions for diverse issues. Many of the recent developments in AI systems are not limited to the benefits seen in work efficiency and automation. They also lead to further progress in highly specialized technologies and techniques beyond human skills. As a result of our research and development activities, we aim to apply mathematics for social improvement in fields including medical treatment and social safety. Mathematics is the foundation of all sciences and technologies, and the unrestricted applicability of mathematics is an incredibly useful tool for describing core issues in society. In the business world, work that cannot be standardized will be at significant risk in the future. However, mathematically computable algorithms handled by computers and AI can reduce most of this risk. To open up a new world, we firmly require modern mathematics, and in the process of development, we wish to have further discussions with more mathematicians, hoping to create new theories in mathematics.
