After a general explanation from Seven Universities Junior Association Chair Jico Hui, Osaka University Distinguished Professor ISHIGURO Hiroshi delivered a lecture on "Understanding People Through Robotics Research."The attendees listened to the lecture with bated breath as the lecture went over the scheduled time. The group discussion and questions that followed did little to cool the excitement, leading to a heated Q&A session.
At the social gathering following the lecture, the alumni broke into teams to answer original quiz questions based on the Seven Universities. Professor ISHIGURO's book was awarded to the winning team, which quickly turned into an autograph book.
