Message & Team


AI Research Institute "NABLAS Co., Ltd." is a startup company from the University of Tokyo. We aim to realize a society in which people can live like people by delivering cutting-edge AI technology to society. ILect Co., Ltd., the predecessor of the company, has been focusing on activities to develop human resources who can use the latest AI technology, but what I strongly felt is that developing human resources is not enough. It was the very need for society to connect directly to address problems by solving problems. Under such circumstances, NABLAS wants to contribute to the realization of a society in which people can live like humans through human resource development, research and development, and consulting activities in the AI ​​field.
