2007 Winter Session "Information Changes the World" Information is changing the world. Information technology made dramatic progress in the latter half of the last century, and now, it is greatly influencing every part of the society, from micro world of biology to global economic order and international relations. We now stand transfixed in the new world where information explodes, links, fuses together and be restructured. When we look around, the networked digital information society has changed our everyday concerns and behavior patterns, in the midst of internet, mobile phones, databases, games, contents industries such as animations, virtual reality, popularization of compact digital media such as iPod, streaming and other online music distribution technologies, development of blogs and search engines. Information serves also as the new foundation for our sense and imagination. What would a new expression for the globally- informatized world be? When robotics and simulation merge with art and music, what kind of new art would the 21st century people acquire? "Information" is a broad and profound theme.Don't you feel that "information" we access in everyday life or get from TV news and internet is far gigantic than "information" learned in school? This is why we invite you through this "Global Focus on Knowledge" lecture series to the new field of knowledge that broadens explosively, crossing boundaries of academic disciplines. In this series, we focus on three main topics; "Structuration of Knowledge and the New Order of Information", "From Life to Robots", "Interface of Information and Art".
