The iTL Faculty is stepping forward to embrace the demands of the AI and IoT era. Although the Faculty focuses on basic knowledge of IT - Information Technology (information systems) and the ability to manage information with Law, it is an arts and social science faculty that, through global liberal arts, equips individuals with unique problem solving skills based on synergistic knowledge of academic fields.
Recently the Council for Principles of Human-centric AI Society, under the auspices of the Cabinet Office, stated the importance of STEM education, SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHEMATICS, and of learning ELSI knowledge, ETHICAL, LEGAL, AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS, which enables individuals to understand AI’s ethical, legal, and social impacts. In short, Japanese policymakers now recognize the importance of synergizing basic IT education with the study of arts and social sciences.
We look forward to welcoming you to the iTL era and together embracing the excitement of a future in the field of information.
