  1. 1. What’s attractive in Rakuten Technology Conference 2016.(English Version) Masaya Mori 森正弥 Program Chairman, Executive Officer
  2. 2. On the opening of Rakuten Technology Conference 2016 This year happily marks the 10th anniversary of Rakuten Technology Conference which is planned by Rakuten engineers with your support. The theme is “The next adventure of humankind” this time. In the past decade, we faced many challenges. Cloud Computing, Smart Device, Social Services, Bigdata, etc in a row. We have tried global distributed development, agile methods and DevOps. Now, IoT is popular. AI is emerging. Those are enabling innovative services and transforming industries. AR/VR are also evolving. Thinking about changes in the coming years, we should be overwhelmed. The disruptive trend like AI will shakeup the society. What next should people do then? Technology won’t give the answer what to do. We would like to think over the next challenges with you. We prepared sessions for that. We will cover challenging topics on AI, super computer, world-class OSS, the drone delivery “Soraraku”, Infra architecture, the latest research and so forth. TED fellows of Rakuten will also hit the stage. Plus, we plan to have an experience-based program named “AR/VR Robotics Park”. Join us to see the future and hopefully you will feel the excitement for the next decade. We are looking forward to seeing you. Masaya Mori Executive Committee Chair
