Each year, the results of our innovation come together at the NTT R&D Forum, held at the NTT R&D Center at Musashino and NTT DATA HQ in Toyosu, Japan. Tens of thousands of staff, clients, journalists, analysts, partners, and members of the public come to experience exceptional, world-class research and development projects from NTT and NTT DATA that will shape the future of how we live and work.
The result of an annual spend of $3.6 billion, the work of thousands of researchers, and over 16,000 patents, the Forum hosts over one hundred breakthrough initiatives, ranging from early proof of concepts to market-ready technologies. Spread across three primary areas – communications services, information networks, and cutting-edge technologies – these technologies boost industrial competitiveness and address several pressing social challenges. Crucially, they also help NTT DATA clients to develop and execute on their agendas, now and in the future.
