Our goal is to commercialize promising technologies with the fastest verification and improvement, build an R&D ecosystem for this purpose and break out of societal, cultural and personal shells to allow businesses to succeed.
We will continue to have a beneficial and significant impact on society with our world-leading digital technology.
We will continue to grow by keeping it simple, and engaging with each other.
Our core technology combines simulation and AI, which has been developed at the
NEC-AIST AI Cooperative Research Laboratory.
We deploy this cutting-edge technology to dramatically accelerate your business,
even in volatile, uncertain, complex, and/or ambiguous (VUCA)
situations where historical data is insufficient.
Unlike big data analysis with deep learning, combining simulation and machine learning supports optimal decision making, even with small data, by automatically generating and complementing simulation data.
Unlike centralized control or mere matching technologies, AI systems independently negotiate agreeable terms and conditions with each other to coordinate detailed behavior and interests between systems that are working with different objectives.
Preparation for Launch
Creating a plan that includes business strategy,
intellectual property strategy and capital policy,
and aiming to maximize business value.
We provide consulting and prototype development services, which include applied research and development with researchers, to companies that want to solve their problems with digital technology and to companies that want to possess and expand their digital R&D capabilities.
We analyze the problems faced by the client and verify whether or not they can be solved by our technology considering the client’s site and circumstances.
Depending on your needs, we can provide the framework for validation.
We create a plan that includes business strategy, intellectual property strategy and capital policy, and aim to maximize business value.
Projects developed in BIRD INITIATIVE will be carved out and launched to become self-sustaining. Operating companies will formally commercialize projects and execute the system integration business.
