Open House 2022

Research for the Future of Humanity and Our Planet

Research opens up the future. And so this future first exists in the imaginations of researchers. Sony CSL researchers will introduce their researches and discuss on how they are battling the very limits of their imagination to create a brighter future, over the three days of the Open House. Guests outside of Sony CSL will be invited to join some sessions as well.
