[Topic ] Beautiful butterflies in my garden

 I have seen some beautiful butterflies in my garden for several years.
They seem to be similar ones I saw in Indonesia as a business trip in 1990s.
My mother who lives in our next house asked me to seek a name of the butterfly through Internet. She does not connect Internet and cannot use mobile phone, either.

[Topic] AI in Japan
The situation might be the same in your country, but it seems to me that media coverage on “Artificial Intelligence (AI)” is recently increasing in Japan, with the hope of convenient and smart future society that would be brought by AI. Here are some examples of news in Japan related to AI, in which I felt interested; Canon announced a plan in August 2015 to establish a laboratory to enhance manufacturing technology for digital camera with an investment of 13 billion yen [1].  The details were not revealed by Canon, but some media reported in Japanese that the plan included development of AI Robot to realize Canon’s vision of fully automated manufacturing of digital camera in Japan by 2018.

[Topic ] Nursing Care Robots in Japan

What do “robots” remind of you?
“Doraemon” or a robot cat is coming from the 22nd century?

In fact, the 80% of robots in Japan are industrial robots to support production in the manufacturing industry. Now there is a growing need for robots in the service sector, with improving functions more elaborately and flexibly by AI, cost-effective parts and so on.
