CICC TOKYO DAYORI vol.55
[Topic]
Thanks for your paying attention to and support for me.

Dear Gentle persons

I am Kazuki Yasui, taking care of Research & Information Division.
This year, we have not so many rainy days so far, but it is said that we
will have terribly hot summer.
This is my 4th " Tokyo Dayori" , and also my final one. I will quit NEC
Corporation soon, and will terminate my assignment for CICC, too. I
appreciate your attention for my "Tokyo Dayori", and support for CICC’s
activities.
I will work for non ICT companies. They try to expand their business
using ICT related service. They have several operation sites on south
East Asia, U.S.A and China. I hope that I could work with you several
areas in ICT in near future.

And, let me put short comment regarding to ICT as my final message to
you.
First of all, as I comment for my next job, non ICT companies will
deploy ICT to expand their business. Many automobile companies have
invested to auto-driving, etc. Amazon was not an ICT companies for the
first time, but they are offering cloud service like IBM, Microsoft,
etc.
And, let me share what I have learned through the CICC activities. It
seems to be getting tougher to get Japanese governmental Fund to support
the project for developing countries just with the purpose of the
contribution using ICT. It is easier to get funding for social
infrastructural project. They have several reasons to put negative
prioritize for ICT. I often hear those reasons from Japanese government
in local are as follows;
1. Those countries are not the phase of ICT investment, rather than
fundamental investment, like road and bridge.
2. Those countries have not enough number of skilled ICT people.
3. It is not so easy to maintain invested system by local people. And,
it means that Japanese companies to support them so long period. I don’
t think above comments are 100% correct and CICC membership companies
and local government would be those problems together.
So, time is coming to finalize my menu, and thanks you so much for your
kind support.

Best regards
Kazuki Yasui(Mr.)

A new School term starts on April 1st in Japan.
I work for PTA(Parent-Teacher Association) activities for the first
time in 10 years in our elementary school.
People say, “Ten years make a short age.”  
To be honest, I felt a little bit worry to restart PTA activities,
because the advent of new technology might make me a deadwood.

[Topic ] Can Asian countries take initiatives for innovative technology?

Dear Gentle persons

I am Kazuki Yasui, taking care of Research & Information Division.
Most of Japanese are fed up with typhoons which have come near to us more than 10 times in this summer. Because of global warming, Japanese islands have become good sandbags for typhoons. And, luckily, we didn’t experience so much hot weather comparing with usual year.

[Topic ] Agricultural Drone

I have watched a video image of an agricultural drone which is splaying a crop with pesticides over a large farm stretching to the horizon.
The agricultural drone which I was interested in by the news report a few days ago is a little different. This drone was developed by Saga University, Saga prefecture and a Software company OPTiM together.

[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.

Reduction method for the telecom fee in my household

The stagnation in the Tokyo stock market from the beginning of the year symbolizes the rupture of " Abenomics " the economic policies of the current Japanese government.
After 8% of the consumption tax was introduced in April 2014, real GDP plunged about 14 trillion yen. Since then, real GDP include sluggish growth and the wages in the ordinary household are not increased. This tax increase amount was supposed to be pressure on the household budget.

[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.
