Class1-Class7: Lectures

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Solution business developed by a tire manufacturer that creates value through real x digital Bridgestone is driving a company-wide digital transformation to transform itself from a traditional manufacturing company to a solutions provider. In this presentation, we will introduce how we are digitizing our entire value chain and how we are fostering a culture within the company that utilizes the data obtained from this process for decision-making and value creation.
Class 2 Analysis of time-series data acquired from IoT tires With the progress of miniaturization and power saving of electronic devices, it has become possible to obtain real-time data on the usage status of various objects. The automobile is the best example of this trend, and it has become a moving electronic device based on the concept of CASE. Tires, a component of automobiles, are no exception, and data such as air pressure, temperature, and acceleration can be obtained in near real time. In this lecture, we will discuss how to realize algorithms that convert such data into more useful information such as tire wear and load with lower load and less memory.
Class 3 Data Science in Real Business Activities The presentation will introduce current data-driven corporate activities based on data science and digital technology, including the extraction of firing conditions for ceramics in materials research and development.
Class 4 Machine Learning with Differentiability and Uncertainty and Industrial Applications Differentiability" and "Uncertainty," which are very important concepts supporting future machine learning technology, will be introduced with the lecturer's research on their fundamentals and applications, and expectations for industrial applications such as robot control and automatic monitoring will be discussed
Class 5 New Trends in SDG/ESG Finance - Science Thinking Required In recent years, many companies have adopted the SDGs and are focusing on creating social impact. The goal of this lecture is to introduce examples of positive social impact created by integrating data science, data engineering, and business skills, using the SDGs as a subject matter, and to give students a sense of business that utilizes scientific, evidence-based, and rational decision-making skills without being bound by precedent.
Class 6 How to design and proceed with AI application projects Practical AI application projects require optimal management of various uncertainties. This lecture will introduce several real-world AI application projects and outline the uncertainties and how to deal with them at each stage of project conception, design, and execution.
Class 7 Finance and Data Science Using currency forecasting as the subject matter, this hands-on course introduces participants to the business of currency trading and the data science used in it.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.



Reference books, course materials, etc.

Materials will be provided on T2SCHOLA in advance and shared in the Zoom lecture
