- Professor Ichiro Innami
Introduction to the discussion
In everyday life, people face a lot of opportunities for decision making, but it is very difficult to make the best decisions in everything.
Improving the ability to make judgments is a good way to enrich your life by learning how to think in the right way.
In order to make good decisions, it is necessary for us to collect various objective information for judgment, and to analyze and select it from various aspects. Therefore, sometimes decision making by the group is effective in that a wide variety of perspectives and ideas are brought in that each individual could not imagine.
However, decision making by the group will sometimes discourage creativity or individual responsibility.
Therefore, I believe decision making by group and decision making by individuals should be combined to make the best decisions
Finding the problem
Here, I would like to consider the intellectual resources needed to make good decisions.
In Japan, especially, in large companies, a round of prior consultations with the people concerned is part of the decision-making process.
However, it is infamous for its extremely time-consuming nature. Moreover, it is well known that this decision-making process discourages creativity.
As described, I do not deny decision making by group, because sometimes it is surely effective when a wide variety of perspectives and ideas are brought in. But honestly, I am wondering if people from the same corporate culture see things differently.
Anyway, I believe that the conventional decision-making process cannot cope with a rapidly changing society, and the new decision-making process should be explored.
Therefore, I would like to devise a new framework that leads to better judgment by utilizing AI technology in information collection and analysis to make the best decision.
Examining the conclusion
By studying with Professor Ichiro Innami, who specializes in decision-making theory, cyber business, and medical policy, I am sure that I could obtain various perspectives regarding my research and it would open up new horizons for me.
Therefore, I believe that Keio University’s Faculty of Policy Management is the most suitable place for pursuing my research and social contributions, and I am aspiring to enter your school and study in your laboratory.
