"As the new century settles in, the diffusion of new technologies such as AI, IoT, and Robotics is to disrupt 20th century common sense and to create new ideas of common sense for the 21st century.

The world embracing diversity and uncertainty  where the borders of regions, states, industries, corporate organizations, and values redefined is waiting for us.

What kind of relationships are required for Japanese corporations under this circumstance?
