※record [J]

    • The 24th AI Art and Aesthetics Research Meeting “Reregion and Mathematical Brain”
      May 2 (Thu/holiday) 14:00-18:45
      Yodobashi Church Obara Memorial Chapel
    • New announcement from AI Art and Aesthetics Research Group (AIAARG).
    • From 2 pm on May 2 (Thu), we will hold the first research meeting in Reiwa, entitled "Religion and Mathematical Brain" at Yodobashi Church Obara Memorial Chapel in Okubo, where concerts of contemporary music are often performed.
    • As a lecturer, we would like to invite Shun'ichi Amari, a leading figure in mathematical brain science and a founder of information geometry, who had already introduced the back propagation method in the Showa 30's, and Junshin Kawasaki, a priest of Taiso-ji Temple, who has created a Blockchain e-Government System - Commons OS and is currently conducting demonstration experiments, and Hisakazu Inagaki, who started as a theoretical physicist, now stands at the forefront of Christian philosophy, religious philosophy, and public philosophy. All the lectures and the discussions will be held in Japanse.
    • This is to reorganize and carry out the same title session, which was scheduled on January 27, but canceled at the request of some teachers who considered the issue of Twitter flaming. We look forward to your participation.
    • In addition, the day before the meeting, on May 1 which is the first day of Reiwa, we will celebrate the third anniversary of our establishment. We will continue to pursue the true AI appearance as a matter of art existence. Thank you very much for your continued support.

Lecture Content

  • "Mathematics, Beauty, Brain and Artificial Intelligence"
    Shun’ichi Amari (RIKEN Honorary Science Advisor, professor emeritus at Tokyo University)

    • People are moved by the beauty of many things. We feel beauty in wonderful scenes, human behavior, pictures, music and even mathematics. Religion may also be beautiful. These are all works that a brain can do.
      The human brain was made so wonderful in the process of evolution. However, evolution was achieved through a random process based on random mutations in which those suitable for survival survive and develop. Our brain, which feels beauty, is also formed in this process. Beauty is consciousness and it sprouts in the heart. Because it was advantageous for survival it was formed.
      Mathematical brain science is trying to elucidate the principle of the brain using mathematics. Using this, it is possible to approach artificial intelligence. In the age of AI, I would like to think about what beauty is, what role it has in individuals and in society.
    • * Shun’ichi Amari, who presented the back propagation method that caused AI boom in the 80's under the name of probabilistic descent learning method in the 60's, was a leading figure in mathematical brain science and founder of information geometry. He won many awards at home and abroad. He had written "Brain, Mind, Artificial Intelligence". (* Nakazawa takes responsibility for the wording.)

  • "Realize the Society of "Wa" from the Infinite Sympathy Value Creation Device of Love"
    Junshin Kawasaki (Priest of Taiso-ji Temple, Blockchain Engineer, Representative of Gftd Japan)

    • There are three types of capital: human capital, financial capital, and social capital. Human capital is the ability to create financial capital and social capital, and financial capital is credit. Then what is the social capital? For example, friends and family are not unconditionally worthwhile. Some families have love and working well, others do not. The standard of value is "empathy," and while sharing time and exchanging information with each other, social capital which is invisible value is accumulated more and more. If converted to financial capital, its value will increase infinitely to billions, tens of, hundreds of billions of yen. In this lecture, based on this "empathy," from from the point of view of Buddhism and technology, I would like to show the faith of the coming age by AI and blockchain technology. In other words, it is the realization of a society of "wa" that harmonizes different things.
    • * Junshin Kawasaki was born in Jehovah's Witness family, and established a religion that allows anyone to realize "God" through a blockchain. He created a Blockchain e-Government System - Commons OS and is currently conducting demonstration experiments. Priest of Taiso-ji Temple. (* Nakazawa takes responsibility for the wording.)

  • "Homo Deus v.s. Free Will"
    Hisakazu Inagaki (distinguished professor of Tokyo Christian University, specializing in Christian Philosophy, Doctor of Science)

    • Y. N. Harari raises the question "Is living thing only an algorithm?" in his recent book “Homo Deus,” and answered “No, human beings have a consciousness (mind) separately from intelligence unlike AI. The lecturer (Inagaki), on the other hand, assumes that human beings are complex systems that can not simply separate intelligence and consciousness (heart). He says that there is an emergent process of brain → consciousness → society, or circuits in the opposite direction also work, and views the real world correlatively as hierarchical meaning structure, 1-world 2-world 3-world 4-world. The lecturer is in a position that there is a pseudo purpose in the universe, and a position that free will is real. The ultimate of the work of consciousness (mind) can be expressed as complete love. All love and mercy are not reciprocity but gifts. I think that whether it can be trusted determines the future of human beings, that is, it determines whether a healthy society can be created by dialogue and practice.
    • * Hisakazu Inagaki was a theoretical physicist and a researcher at the Theoretical Division of CERN , and then turns to the forefront of Christian philosophy, religious philosophy and public philosophy. Distinguished professor of Tokyo Christian University. He had written "Religion and Public Philosophy"et al. (* Nakazawa takes responsibility for the wording.)

  • "Will a Religious Mind Emerge in AI?"
    Hideki Nakazawa (artist, representative of AI Art and Aesthetics Research Group)

    • As for God and the brain, we can ask if God created the brain or if the brain created God. If everything is a creation of God, it is the former, but as a materialist position, "God is the concept created by the human brain," it is the latter.
      As for God and AI, we can ask whether AI is God or AI believes in God. If humans do not think by themselves and enter AI religion in which we rely everything on AI, it is the former, but if AI is made to resemble the human brain, AI will eventually create the concept of God and the religious mind will also emerge in AI it will be the latter.
      The latter of the first question and the latter of the second question are premised on "intelligence that can not help creating the concept of God." We will replace this with the mechanism that seeks causality and think about the implementation to AI.
