Comments from Professor Sugiyama
I am honored to receive the FUNAI Achievement Award for my academic and its related achievements in information technology. I am grateful to all that supported me. In recent years, information technology, including artificial intelligence, is rapidly advancing and research development competitiveness is globally overheated. Japan also needs to promote activities multidimensionally; research, develop, and implement technology in society, and establish legal framework for it. I will continue to devote myself to development of this field.
