MESSAGE FROM THE NEW SECTION CHAIR (2007/2008)
〜Toshiharu Aoki (NTT Data)〜
It is a great honor for me to serve as Chair of the IEEE Tokyo Section for the
two-year term beginning January 2007.
I am encouraged by the way members of the Tokyo Section actively participate in
various engineering society activities both in Japan and abroad, as members of the IEEE. In the short time
since I began to serve as Chair and became more directly involved in the Section’s activities, I have been
pleasantly surprised at the high level of these activities and have developed a deep respect for the members.
While most other engineering societies in Japan are suffering from a decline in their
membership, it is outstanding that Japanese membership of the IEEE is increasing. Of course, this increase is
largely due to the energetic activities of the members. It is also a fact that the IEEE has certain attractive
aspects that are absent in domestic societies. By building on, and developing, these appealing features, I hope
to contribute to enhancing the research activities of members through the further development of the IEEE.
The range of fields covered by the IEEE is extremely wide, and over the years since its
inception, the IEEE has contributed to the development of industry and the economy through stimulating the production
of research results. Recently the progress in technology in the field of IT or ICT, has given birth to various products
and businesses, which are now widely accepted. These are having a great influence in changing people’s lifestyles
and sense of values. These changes are, in turn, spawning further new industries, and accelerating a change in the
industrial structure. In other words, the mission of the technologies covered by the IEEE has changed from one of
mainly contributing to the development of the associated individual industries to one of applying technologies to
create new industries, while changing the sense of values and demands of consumers along the way. Innovation is
taking place in almost all fields of business, such as finance, physical distribution, content provision, and
manufacturing, but I would say that this innovation has been driven not so much by the desire to produce useful
and interesting things as by the need to respond to changes in the sense of values of consumers and to modify the
industries themselves to adapt to such changes. This means that it is more important than ever before to recognize
that our research results have a serious influence on society, and, to capture the demands and requirements from
society carefully and accurately when undertaking research and development.
It is a pleasure to work with the members to further enhance the activities of the IEEE Tokyo Section.
