future questions, art & science at the lodge run by Yahoo! japan

About the event

The Artian is happy to be back in Tokyo with another event of our ART X TECH X ENTREPRENEURSHIP series. This time we will host Toshiki Miyauchi from Yahoo! Japan.

Miyauchi leads many cross-organizational projects in Yahoo! such as media art manager, disaster prevention, GovTech, and Social Design.

He is the Future Questions magazine editor-in-chief, a magazine that explores future concepts and how we can get there. A few years back, he co-organized the Art & Science team inside Yahoo! that explores the connections between art and technological developments.

In this conversation, Toshiki will share some of the projects the Art & Science team has been working on; what are some learning from working between art and science; how it might influence technology, users or the company and more.

The event will take place at Yahoo! JAPAN new space The LODGE. Please enter through the gate on the 2nd floor, then take the elevator to the 18th floor and come to the reception desk.

The conversation will take place in Japanese and require registration.
