Title :  
 "Modern Rosetta Stones and Mathematics"
 
Abstract :
Today, it seems as if AI is sweeping the world. However, current AI relies on machine learning (deep learning), so to speak. It can be said roughly limited to pattern processing. Moreover, the black box problem and the unconscious bias problem that do not involve explanations of judgments and decisions present serious social problems. In addition, there are many issues that cannot be parted with, such as over-expectations for medical use and machine translation, although dreams are widespread and interest is high. It's fun to have a moderate amount of problems we don't understand. However, it is a situation that cannot be said so. In this talk, I would like to give an opportunity to think about the future development of mathematics and its relationship with society, while introducing symbolic examples that connect mathematics and society and the words of our predecessors, not limited to AI.
