Our Activities

Activities


Project Promotion
The association is engaged in a variety of project activities based on the principle of "solving social issues through technology".


Management of Singularity Lab
We run the community "Singularity Lab" and support people who want to be active outside of school and work.


SDGs Promotion
The SDGs(Sustainable Development Goals) are initiatives to address global social issues proposed by the United Nations since 2015. In order to promote the SDGs in line with the policies of the United Nations, the Association has developed an original board game and regularly holds workshops to convey the importance of the SDGs and to think about what we can do to achieve the SDGs with many people.


Contracted development
We dispatch lecturers on the latest technologies such as AI, RPA, and blockchain, and develop websites and smartphone applications on consignment.
We also provide planning, development, and operational support for online learning tools such as e-learning and course production.
We also design and produce websites, landing pages, and flyers.

Greeting

 

Ever since I was in the Faculty of Science at Kyoto University, I have wondered why there is no innovation in Japan, even though there are many talented people around me. When I was in graduate school, I had the opportunity to do research at Stanford University, and after graduation, I worked at the research center of a major manufacturer, where I spent time with highly skilled people, and this feeling became even stronger. Through trial and error, I held study sessions and discussions with my colleagues and engineers from other companies to see if we could somehow make a social impact by launching Japanese engineers.

The association for the promotion of future technology was established in 2017 by a group of members, mainly engineers, who empathized my thoughts. Singularity Lab, a community led by our association, is an organization that aims to solve social issues using technology. Nowadays, not only engineers but also company executives, NPO-related people, lawyers, pharmacists, and many other people have joined Singularity Lab.

In the future, we will create various social problem-solving projects with people who are interested in the latest technology, and contribute to solving social problems in Japan by involving companies, researchers, investors, and entrepreneurs.
