    • What happens to the car industry when self-driving cars appear? → coexistence and retrofitting from non AI to AI

 

Koizumi Junichiro’s speech:

  • On nuclear power and nuclear waste processing and neutralization

  • “Genpatsu Zero!” (Zero nuclear plants!)

  • Now Japan has only 3 nuclear plants

  • Natural energy such as wind and solar provide more than 30% of the whole electricity consumption in Japan and nuclear energy is only below 2%

サービス概要

「Moore’s collar™」のサービス名に込めるビジョン
ご存知の通り、Intel社を設立したゴードン・ムーア氏は1965年にムーア法則を発見しました。
この法則は半導体の集積密度が18~24ヶ月で倍増すると主張しています。
そして2020年の頃に限界を迎えると言われています。
それまではどんどんより高い計算量のマイクロチップが作られ計算装置に組み込まれます。
日々の生活の中で使われる電気・電子装置に搭載されます。
その中に最も注目を浴びているのはいわゆるIoT = Internet of Things = モノのインターネット装置であろうと考えています。
IoTはインターネット接続、実時間処理能力そしてセンサーを装備しているデバイスと定義できます。
更にその上に人工知能のレイヤーを重ねると賢い行動ができる、あるいは賢い決断が出来る道具が可能になります。
そしてブロックチェーン技術と連携させると、モノとモノとの間にお金の交換ができるようになります。
IoT、ブロックチェーン、そして人工知能、その三つの技術を合わせると黄金の三角形が形成され、想像を絶する、今までに不可能だと思われていたアプリケーションが初めて実現可能となります。
IoT産業に属している成長企業様や画期的なベンチャー様が抱えている最大の課題はビジネスモデルの発掘よりも、有用な人材の確保であると考えています。
だからこそ、私達、ムーアズカラー™(Moore’s collar™)は、IoT技術で日本中にイノベーションを起こす企業様を支援できるよう徹底的に努めていきたいと思います。
サービスの特長

IoT業界を中心に、その他AR/VR業界などの熟知
計1000名以上の厳選されたIoTエンジニア(日本在住)が登録
計300名以上の厳選されたAR/VRエンジニア(日本在住)が登録
IoT分野に属する人材ネットワーク規模(グローバルDB):合計190,000名以上
IoTを中心に、その他AR、VRなどに関連する技術を開発するベンチャー・スタートアップの厳選された求人案件をご用意
コンサルタント全員がもともとは計算工学や電子・電気工学の修士を取得していることから、IoT業界に転職されたい求職者に対して徹底的なヒアリングを実施し、最適な転職活動のサポートをすることが出来ます。
