WHAT IS

MIRAI BOSAI?

Create a place where you can work with scientists and engineers from a wide range of research fields to start new business planning.
And, by moving the economy forward, we will achieve a safe and sustainable community.

In October 2019, an international collaboration agreement was signed between Japanese and U.S. research institutions (PEER) that conduct disaster prevention and mitigation research. Based on this agreement, the MIRAI Alliance of Kobe University will host the "Kobe PEER Workshop," an international series of workshops on disaster prevention and mitigation under the theme of "Disaster Prevention in the Future," to disseminate the latest research results from Japan and abroad to society and connect them to new projects.

PROGRAMS

Day 1

Lecture1 13:10-14:00

Urban Safety Assessment and Investment; The Possibility of Market Creation Using Whole City Simulation Technology

In 2016, a simulation of the entire city of Kobe was conducted at the RIKEN AICS@Kobe, where the city was reproduced in a virtual space. This is an urban digital twin. In this way, various disaster risks can be quantified. On the other hand, non-financial information is becoming more important for improving corporate value, which is ESG investment. The urban digital twin reveals the disaster risks to which a company is exposed. In this way, we can see a scheme in which economic activities during normal times lead to the strengthening of national land. In other words, disaster prevention and mitigation will be transformed from a passive defense by the public to an investment by the private sector.

Lecture2 14:10-14:40

Next Generation Disaster Prevention "Visualization", Toward the Realization of Autonomous Resilient Systems

In the face of the recent natural disasters, which have continued to record the highest unexpected values in the history of observation, it has become increasingly difficult to limit the damage using only empirical measures. It has become a social issue to create a resilient system where each region can accept the "unexpected" and autonomously make decisions and take actions to minimize the damage. In this section, we will introduce the next generation of disaster prevention "visualization" that we have started working on with local governments.

Ten Years’ Path of the Tsunami-Affected Enterprises in East Japan: Implications for ESG

When the state was a welfare state that exercises the progressive taxation and decisive redistribution for public policies, the corporate sector was allowed to be a simple profit-seeker. In the neo-liberal state aiming at the small government, corporations are expected to respond to the ESG investments that advocate to supplement the receding state role. By elaborating the objective method of evaluating the true added-value of corporate ESG activities, we will be able to prevent the ESG investment arguments to end up with a hideout of the capital gain tax evasion. This report intends to induce some lessons from the questionnaire survey on the tsunami-affected enterprises as of the 10th anniversary of the East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.

Learning from Leading Companies: How to Integrate SDGs and CSR into Your Business?

Guest;Daisuke Shigeta,Go Tsuboi

listener;Takara Yamamoto

Lecture 4 13:10-14:00

Visualization technology opens up the relationship between nature and humans in the Anthropocene, to the creation of market value.

Recently, the Earth is said to have entered the sixth era of mass extinction. About 1 million species of flora and fauna in the world are in danger of extinction, and the conservation of biodiversity and the establishment of practical monitoring (visualization) methods are urgent issues. Recent advances in image analysis using deep learning have been remarkable, and by automating the interpretation of image data obtained from mobile applications, it has the potential to become a breakthrough in efficient on-site data collection. In this presentation, I will introduce the bio-monitoring business using smartphone apps that I have been working on, and will discuss the relationship between biodiversity and humans by giving an overview of related fields.
