Sony has announced that they’ve established a new “Sony AI” organisation, with offices in Japan, Europe and the USA. Its goal is to advance the research and development of AI. They see AI playing a vital role in the future, particularly when it comes to imaging & sensing, robotics and entertainment.
Their purpose, Sony says is to “Fill the world with emotion, through the power of creativity and technology” and that AI will play a big part in that. Sony AI will drive the R&D of AI through “multiple world-class flagship projects”, and they’ll be looking into the ethics of AI technology, too.
