GrooveX CEO Kaname Hayashi releases book “Warm Technology, No Mirage” and wins Innovation Award


Staff member
GrooveX CEO Kaname Hayashi has won a prize for his book on his views on the future of AI and humanity that draw from his experiences that lead up to developing Lovot. Sounds like an interesting read but seems to only be available in Japanese at present. I’m unsure the exact title of the book due to it getting lost in translation but think it is called “Warm Technology, No Mirage”.

Comments by 林 author要要"Why did I, who was an engineer developing race cars and mass-produced cars, create a robot that does not work on behalf of people, nor does it speak a language, to be loved?It is often asked, "What are you doing?"It was the result of the accumulation of experiences and awareness in my life until now.Trying to reproduce the reality in a virtual simulation, competing for a thousand seconds in a race, working abroad and tears of regret, touching nature and walking on dead animals - all the experiences were necessary to create LOVOT.As a result of that trajectory of contemplation, LOVOT was born.

One part of that is the warm technology.Will technology hunt humanity down?Or do you make people happy?It is in our choice.If everyone does not forget that they have the reins, the future will surely go in a good direction.We hope that it will be an opportunity for those who are not interested in technology or LOVOT to take it in their hands and think about the symbiosis between technology and humanity.、

In order to deliver this book to more people, we will publish a new edition with a renewed binding while keeping the contents as it is.
