Air pollution particles probed by satellites
Lecturer Professor Sonoyo Mukai

The term "PM2.5" became famous after Beijing's air pollution problem in January 2013.The Earth's atmosphere is made up of not only molecules but also aerosols, which are particles less than 1/10,000th of a millimeter in size.Of these, those with a particle diameter of 2.5 micrometers or less are called PM2.5.The smaller the particle size, the greater the risk that it will be taken into the body through the respiratory and circulatory tracts.Atmospheric particles are difficult to analyze because of the contribution of various factors such as natural origin, anthropogenic origin, and a mixture of the two.I will talk about the satellite-based analysis method that is most suitable for understanding these air pollution particles on a global scale.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and the Potential for Digital Transformation (DX)
Lecturer Professor, Masaki Fujiwara

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a method of automating business processes and provides insights and internal controls, drawing on a central database that collects inputs from the entire company to achieve management efficiency. Today, the integrated system to realize this is called ERP.

The term DX (digital transformation) has been gaining traction in recent years. DX is about enabling business innovation predicated on the incorporation of digital technologies into your operational process, products, solutions, and customer interactions. ERP is about internal transformation, whereas DX is about creating new customer value.

In this lecture, we will show that ERP will play a role as an IT infrastructure to promote the new trend of customer value creation called DX.

Commoditization and Applications of AI Technology
Lecturer Associate Professor Takao Nakaguchi

Various AI-based technologies, such as machine translation, image recognition, and voice recognition, are spreading and changing society. Furthermore, with the trend toward open source, the latest technologies are now available to anyone free of charge, and AI technologies are being used in a variety of systems. We will review the development of AI technologies that have attracted much attention in recent years and introduce examples of applications, and actually write simple programs to experience machine translation and image processing technologies.(A Google account is required for the experience.)
