About the Event 关于活动

Whether our behavior is controlled by our own will or by other’s is a basic philosophic issue that defines identity achievement. Today, we are bombarded by massive information, and intentionally or not, we are influenced by what we see on TV and in advertisements to make decisions and take actions. In other words, technologies available in the modern society could influence and even sometimes control how we behave in a stealthy manner. In this case, could we claim that our thoughts and behavior are truly determined by ourselves?

This question has led NTT DOCOMO, a mobile phone operator in Japan, and Osaka University to initiate a project “Saving YourSelf!!!”. The project concretizes the connection between the internal world and the external world to help us gain a better understanding of how difficult it is to make decisions on our own will in the modern society. We are honored to invite Hideyuki Ando, an associate professor at the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University, to share the details and highlights of the project “Saving YourSelf!!!”.


这思考使得日本NTT DOCOMO与大阪大学制定了一项名为“拯救你自己!!!”的计划,通过具象化自我与外部世界之间的关系,帮助我们认识到在现代社会,我们究竟可以依靠自己的意愿走多远。在这里,我们很高兴邀请大阪大学信息科技系副教授安藤英由树介绍“拯救自己!!!”的详细体验及特点。
