TOKYO, Feb 6, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) has announced that German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel visited the company's Tokyo headquarters on Tuesday, February 5, where she was introduced to NEC's advanced ICT technologies, including AI and biometric identification solutions, and engaged in dialogue with employees about technology, regulations and privacy protection.

Chancellor Merkel toured the "NEC Future Creation Hub," a newly established co-creation space at NEC headquarters, as she was hosted by NEC's Chairman of the Board, Nobuhiro Endo, and a wide range of NEC employees on her only visit to a private company during this trip to Japan.

The chancellor exchanged dialogue with members of NEC about the balance of technological innovation with legal regulations, privacy protection, human rights and ethics as digitization and the use of data continue making advancements among society and people.

NEC also introduced AI and biometrics use cases as part of illustrating the value that they provide to customers, in addition to the demonstration of a satellite-mounted radar system for monitoring urban infrastructure, the integrated management of various sensing data, disaster prevention and disaster countermeasure solutions. This was in addition to an active discussion between Chancellor Merkel and NEC employees on the application of ICT for helping to resolve social challenges.
