 For the "9" projects, information on sudden natural disasters such as guerrilla rainstorms, which Osaka University, Saitama University, Toshiba, etc. are working on, will be provided accurately and with sufficient time to realize safe tournament management and visitors. "Guerrilla rainstorm / tornado advance prediction" to ensure a safe stay, and "multilingual speech translation system" used by research institutes such as universities to realize stress-free communication with visitors from overseas. There is "smart hospitality" and so on.

 At the symposium, a panel discussion was also held by five experts, including Professor Masayuki Kawamoto of the University of Tsukuba. Opinions were exchanged on the current status and prospects of the "5 projects" and their practical utility to society from the perspective of consumers.
