Kazutaka Yonekura, CEO, alt Inc. x Saya Ichikawa

Zero Impact: A world without the need for people

Under the theme of Zero Impact—a world without the need for people—Yonekura will delve deeply into the creation and unlimited possibilities of a work environment in which people are no longer needed. In addition, the following innovative new services will be presented, focusing on the role AI will play in the future labor market and the creation of new value for humanity.


■ alt personal agent:

 An automated operation system based on a general-purpose LLM (large language model).

 This service automates and improves the efficiency of daily operations.


■ Clone matching (HR):

 A next-generation, LLM-powered matching system.

 By incorporating qualitative information that has not been taken into account in the past, the system can respond to complex needs in the HR domain.


■ Avatar interactive automatic HR system by altBRAIN:

 This system enables the AI (Brain) to autonomously perform everything from lead acquisition to the first interview, driving improved efficiency and quality in the recruitment process.


The presentation will also provide concrete examples of how the proactive use of AI technology is the turning point for companies to become the winners of the future. We will discuss with our audience the pivotal choice every business must make now: to ride the wave of technological innovation or to forgo it.


Yoshikazu Nishimura, CTO, alt Inc.

GenAI to PAI

What comes next after GenAI: I will discuss alt's vision of the future from a technological perspective. I’ll also talk about the future horizon of GenAI, from responsive to autonomous and from general to personalized.


Yusuke Hioki, Director and CFO, alt Inc.

“Human capital management” judges with AI

Examining human resources displaced by AI vs. human resources that continue to create value.

Imagining the world 30 or 100 years from now, what does essential "human capital management" (maximizing the value of human resources) mean? I will explore the optimal direction that society, companies, and individuals should aim for by judging some prevalent misconceptions with the help of AI.


Takahiro Ikushima x Kentaro Inui x Yoshikazu Nishimura

Special conversation (panel discussion)


Junki Komura, AI/DX Consultant Principal and Business Development Manager, alt Inc.

The illness and cure of Japan’s DX

Digital clones create labor production and accompany and support people. People add unique value.

alt can provide AI/DX solutions that are not traditional coping strategies, but cause-oriented. This program will include the results of alt's own research and will include a demonstration of one of our solutions.


Katsuya Asai, General Manager, AI Solutions Division, alt Inc.

The beginning of the clone business

Strategic implementation of AI brings significant added value to companies. An optimal AI strategy comes with benefits in many aspects, such as increased efficiency, faster decision-making, and improved customer experience, and is a key component to overall organizational growth and competitiveness. At alt, we create innovative initiatives to enhance the competitiveness of client businesses, discover new business models, and provide products and services that meet the needs of the market. We will introduce you to our clients with examples of actual initiatives.

Special conversation (panel discussion)


Masataka Inoue, AI M&A Managing Director, alt Inc.

–CloneM&A– Ending the M&A market pain

The M&A intermediary industry is booming at a time when the lack of successors for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their closure from profitability have been defined as pressing national issues.

Although it attracts attention from the stock market as a 20 trillion yen industry, it is in fact extremely labor intensive and does not reach the many SMEs that need M&A services.

The CloneM&A developed by alt will lead to a fundamental solution to this social problem. I will introduce alt's cutting-edge technology that will light up the future of SMEs with a demonstration.


Fumiya Hosaka, AE Manager, AI SaaS Division, alt Inc.

Next-generation sales models using AI: the end of the sales force–like SaaS business

This presentation will introduce the de facto standard for next-generation sales models utilizing AI.

In Japan, where the working population is expected to decline in the future, how do we reduce the workforce and secure the sales force that will be the starting point of management and planning by working together with AI? And how do we horizontally deploy the know-how of top salespeople? Here are some answers from alt.

Special conversation (panel discussion)


Yuta Hitomi, AI lead engineer, R&D Division, alt Inc.

People quietly changing the world of AI

In this session, I will introduce companies that are finding ways to get along well with foundational models in an environment of LLM model development dominated by big tech, and are seeking to apply foundational models and develop peripheral technologies. Through their strategic initiatives and technological approaches, we will explore new developments in the field of AI.
