When I was in elementary school, I wanted to build a real-life Doraemon robot cat. I have used that desire to motivate myself and have continued to work hard. Somewhere along the line, I started feeling that there was no meaning to having a real-life Doraemon that I built alone. Today, I am also focusing on creating a community of research lovers with “a Doraemon created with others” as the concept.
I founded Whole Brain Architecture (WBA) Future Leaders  when I was an undergraduate, and it is now supported by more than 2,300 people. I feel great enthusiasm for creating teams with not only people involved in artificial intelligence, which is my area of specialization, but also with those in other academic fields and even people outside of academia. The Masason Foundation is the best team for me to achieve my aim of building a real-life Doraemon.
