back to article Fujitsu wants technology to shape a better future – its technology, of course

Fujitsu wants to make the world a better place and thinks technology is the way to do it. Fujitsu technology, naturally. The Japanese multinational laid out its vision – outlining an automated, converged world, with AI to support decision making – for the next decade or so during its ActivateNow: Technology Summit online. …

    All of this from a company that can't run a post office accounting system.

    I am aslo quite bored with the over use misuse of AI, something that is simply an abbreviation of (Al)gorithm.

      Yes, this futurism stuff is a matter of gazing at the distant Horizon.

      Let's not let that one drop until some of those really responsible find themselves gazing at it from the dock.

        The Distant Horizon will be Enlightening, with the rising sun of a mushrroom cloud or 3. the way Gov. xx is going.

      Compared to Boeing

      At least they did not kill 250 people.

    Oh! Aaaaahhhh! Fujitsu-u-u-u-u-u!

    When I worked for them they often regaled us with tales of these lofty ambitions. Some cool stuff did leak out through the gaps, the rest of it was NPfIT and Horizon.

    new solutions for challenges such as reducing CO2 emissions and people's wellbeing

    We're already damn good at reducing peoples wellbeing. Don't need Fugitsu or anyone elses' help for that.

    You mean more technology will make the world an even better place than it is now?

      That could very well be the case, IF we manage to get moneygrubbing oligarchy off medical policy. If not, truly dark ages of quick+dirty injections ahead.

    Perhaps Fujitsu can use their quantum technology to speed up the compensation process for all those wrongly prosecuted in the Post Office Horizon IT scandal which - due to the Post Office’s further gross incompetency they seemed to have got away largely scot free from.

      I am amazed that Fujitsu was not prosecuted and still wins government contracts, considering the following from Computer Weekly:

      "Fujitsu can’t avoid scrutiny as its role went beyond just supplying and supporting the software. It also provided data packs to the Post Office, which were used to wrongly prosecute subpostmasters and even provided witnesses to the Post Office in trials of subpostmasters accused of theft and false accounting"
