Communicating with someone from a different culture and background is more difficult than one thinks. Various problems happen in sequence because of breakdowns in communications. One possible way of avoiding such breakdowns and activating communication ‘can’ be a creative use of new technology?
In the Tokyo Tech ‘HAPIC’ COI (Center of Innovation) platform, we propose the following four technology applications: a ‘connected co-created space’ service, a ‘multilingual intent translation’ service, a ‘tele-presence communication’ service, and ‘an information recall’ service. The ultimate objective is to realise a community which enjoys rich communication between people beyond any borders.
