Dubai – Asdaf News:

Experts anticipated that people may have robotic digital twins in the future to carry out their work and responsibilities on their behalf, allowing them to have more social freedom, during a lecture session titled “Moonshot Aim 1: Introducing Cybernetic Avatars” conducted at Dubai’s Museum of the Future. The workshop was a component of a partnership between the Japan Science and Technology Agency and the Dubai Future Foundation’s Dubai Future Laboratories, which brought together science and technology experts from Japan and the UAE to study the junction of reality and the Metaverse using robots.

The talk emphasized the possibilities for a world free of physical, mental, spatial, and temporal constraints by 2050. The Moonshot Aim 1 program of the Japan Science and Technology Agency encourages creative concepts and research initiatives geared on preparing societies for digital futures and creating the framework for deploying cutting-edge technologies that can enable virtual social activities by 2050.

The idea of robots becoming digital twins of people, carrying out duties and labor more correctly and swiftly than humans, was one of the opportunities explored throughout the sessions. This development might result in more time being available for socializing and other activities.

Khalifa Al Qama, Director of Dubai Future Labs, said, “Promoting research and development in cooperation with various scientific, technological and research institutions at the local and international levels is critical to anticipating future opportunities and transforming innovative ideas into real solutions for a better future for humanity.

“This event aligns with Dubai Future Foundation’s efforts to identify the most important opportunities and upcoming technological transformations, and to exchange experiences, best practices and knowledge about the best ways for societies to benefit from future technology.”

Coexisting Between Digital and Real World

The Moonshot Goal 1 program, which consists of seven research projects focused on developing a variety of cybernetic avatars to enable people to actively participate in the development of their societies while taking ethical, economic, environmental, legal, and social factors into consideration, was introduced in the first talk by Dr. Norihiro Hagita, program director and professor at Osaka University of Arts.

Hiroshi Ishiguro, Project Manager and Professor at Osaka University, said during the second lecture, “Our lives will change drastically by 2050, and we will have greater freedom in choosing our location and how we spend our time participating in various activities such as work, education, medical care and daily life. We aim to develop levels of digital and real coexistence in a balanced manner.”

Junichi Ushiba, Deputy Project Manager and Professor at Keio University, spoke about promising technologies for analysing brain activities and body language to predict human interactions and behaviours, helping to develop the virtual reality world.

Kouta Minamizawa, Project Manager and Professor at Keio University, noted during the final lecture that the Moonshot Goal 1 programme helps people make full use of their abilities and share their skills and experiences with others to promote joint innovation.–WAM
