Hiroshi Ishiguro joins The European Conference on Aging & Gerontology (EGen2019) as Keynote Speaker

We are delighted that Hiroshi Ishiguro director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Japan's Osaka University, and visiting Director of Hiroshi Ishiguro Laboratories at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute (ATR), Japan, will be Keynote Speaker (joining via Skype) at The European Conference on Aging & Gerontology (EGen2019), taking place December 07-08, 2019, at University College London, London, UK.

An Intelligent Robot Infrastructure is an interaction-based infrastructure. By interacting with robots, people can establish nonverbal communications with the artificial systems. That is, the purpose of a robot is to exist as a partner and to have valuable interactions with people.

Our objective is to develop technologies for the new generation information infrastructures based on Computer Vision, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.


Hiroshi Ishiguro received a Doctor of Engineering in Systems Engineering from Osaka University, Japan in 1991. He is currently Professor of the Department of Systems Innovation in the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University (from 2009) and Distinguished Professor of Osaka University (from 2017). He is also visiting Director (from 2014) (group leader: 2002–2013) of Hiroshi Ishiguro Laboratories at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute and an ATR fellow. His research interests include sensor networks, interactive robotics, and android science. He received the Osaka Cultural Award in 2011. In 2015, he received the Prize for Science and Technology (Research Category) by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan. He was also awarded the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award in Dubai in 2015.
