KYOCERA Corporation Press briefing:

Development of Three Solutions for New Human Augmentation Technology

October 13th, (THUR)14:00~ 

*Demonstration experience available at the venue.


Human augmentation uses advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies to enable new experiences and skills by complementing and improving human abilities.


Research and development is being conducted worldwide, and the market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 18.8% from 2021 to 2027, reaching US $385.9 billion by 2027.


Particularly, in Japan, research and development of human augmentation technology are flourishing against the backdrop of the spread of new work styles such as teleworking, the declining birthrate and aging population, and a shrinking workforce.


Kyocera has developed three solutions to enhance human perception, cognition, and motor skills while improving human presence and interaction. It is expected to benefit multiple fields, from the healthcare and medical sectors to entertainment and manufacturing.



■System1:Motor skill Augmentation

Promoting optimal posture and walking for wellness

Using wearable sensors installed by Kyocera’s AI technology monitors the user’s walk and provides coaching instructions to improve posture and stride.


■System2:Presence Augmentation

Enhancing remote interaction with in-office co-workers

Persons who work remotely can be represented by Kyocera's devise placed in the office, enabling more natural visual and audio communication with others.


■System3:Perception and Cognition Augmentation

The device monitors a person’s surroundings, enabling them to instantly play back a missed cue, such as a train or flight announcement. The device supports attention and memory enhancement and can help reduce stress.
