A series of lectures on cutting-edge issues in solving real-world problems and realizing super smart society will be provided to master-course and doctor-course students enrolled in the WISE (World-leading Innovative & Smart Education) program for Super Smart Society, in cooperation with the Super Smart Society Promotion Consortium.
The aim of this course is to help students cultivate high-level understanding of both quantum science and a super-smart society, professional expertise in specialized fields related to both cyber space and physical space technologies, and critical-thinking skills to solve multidisciplinary social issues. In particular, the student will be able to explain the current status and future of the three workplaces, as well as the environmental controls of the workplaces and their design.
