In recent years, the importance of mathematical sciences has been increasingly recognized in various fields, as exemplified by the rapid progress of AI technology and the development of DX (Digital Transformation) in companies.
In academia, research centers have been established in fields such as space, materials, life, and medicine, where experts in the mathematical sciences play an important role in research activities in their respective fields.
At the same time, the universality of mathematics and the quantitative and predictive nature of data analysis are also being considered useful in industry, and some companies are actively using mathematical science in their own business. Some companies are actively utilizing mathematical science in their business.
In this symposium, researchers who are conducting research with the mission of returning research using mathematical science to society and implementing it will gather to discuss, based on the results of their cutting-edge research, "Can social issues be solved with mathematical science? -Attempts and Challenges" and discuss the role of mathematical science in society.
