FORUM8 Sponsor the 2019 MIT Start-up Showcase in Tokyo
FORUM8 has continued to demonstrate its commitment to supporting industry research and innovation through its sponsorship of the recent MIT Startup Showcase in Tokyo. Part of the MIT Industry Liaison Programme (MIT ILP) this year’s conference was focussed particularly on Fintech, Digital Transformation and AI, addressing the big questions on how can businesses best integrate fintech for digital transformation? and what can an organization gain from utilizing AI in their daily operations?
FORUM8 has participated in MIT ILP since December 2015, conducting research and development to expand existing VR-related businesses and develop new businesses such as robots and medical care as well as strengthening the collaboration in the overall software engineering business by extending marketing into Europe and the United States.
Speaking at the conference Yuji Ito, President of FORUM8, introduced the latest 3DVR simulation technology illustrated with real examples of industrial applications and how it is being used in a variety of industries including in helping manufacturers develop the next generation of autonomous vehicles.
Japanese and international delegates at the conference were also given the opportunity to try out the technology for themselves on the latest Automatic Steering VR simulator with torque control at the FORUM8 booth.
