*Lectures will be given in Japanese.
There seems to be no end to corporate scandals, such as accounting fraud, intentional mislabeling of food products, failure to report recalls, etc.  Also, the corporate environment has drastically changed these couple of years, through economic globalization, increase of M & A (merger and acquisition) cases, changes in attitude of stakeholders, such as employees, stockholders, clients, and consumers.
Taking into consideration the present situation of corporations, this course will offer students the opportunity to study following issues:
What are the recent changes in the corporate environment?
What revisions of legal status pertaining to corporate governance, compliance, etc. correspond to these changes?
What changes have arisen in corporate awareness of issues, such as business ethics and in-house systems, etc.?
What issues have corporations addressed and what measures have been taken?

The lecturer will explain intellectual property rights protection, management and utilization indispensable for the development of IT technology and business, using concrete examples and starting from the basic knowledge in an easy-to-understand manner.

We will take a general view of what is intellectual property, intellectual property system in Japan and overseas, situation of its utilization, and how intellectual property is utilized by companies and universities.

Among intellectual property systems, from the viewpoint of protection of research and development results, we will focus on the most important patent system. Lectures deal not only with acquiring knowledge, but also handling practical contents such as methods of preparing patent application documents and investigation methods such as patent information.

In addition to patents, lectures also deal with protection of other intellectual property rights such as utility model system, design system, trademark system, copyright system, and unfair competition prevention act etc.

The lecturer will explain specific examples of intellectual property strategies such as open-close strategies used by global companies, and ways of obtaining, managing and utilizing of intellectual property rights in companies and universities.

Lectures also cover the noticeable topic of protection of IoT, AI, learned data, computer software, computer program, and business-related invention by intellectual property rights which includes copyright.

/Course outline
Tentative new title of this course: SOFTWARE and CULTURES.
Expected teaching model: face-to-face classes.

This course is an introduction to contemporary discourse on understanding software engineering within the context of liberal arts, cross-cultural communication and human-centric design paradigms. We discuss interdisciplinary nature of software and its links to humanities and fine arts.

The course is oriented to software engineering students that want to extend their knowledge on software philosophy, on how software appeals to contemporary societal problems, and how approaches and models used in non-technical disciplines may help in understanding software and improve its qualities. We offer an introduction to current research discourse via a number of practical foresight sessions and workshops using recent research publications and analytical reports.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
After course completion the students will have the following learning outcomes:

• Understanding particularities of major software development paradigms, their connection, their mutual dependencies and their links to other natural science and humane science disciplines.
• Understanding of major software engineering principles and methods and their implementation.
• Ability to critical analysis of studies on software development and philosophy.
• Ability to create and use of object-oriented models in software design.
• Understanding of multi-paradigm approach.
• Understanding the human-centric design paradigm.
• Ability to define, describe and use design patterns in software development.

授業の概要
/Course outline
There is a myth that only artists, composers, writers, singers, actors, inventors and others of these types are creative people. There is also a myth that creativity is mysterious and uncontrollable burst of inspiration available only to a lucky few; the creative process is considered the same as the process of spiritual growth, etc. In fact, IT specialists are the most creative persons: they understand people needs, applications; corresponding abstract models and transforms knowledge into design and implementations.
In this course, creativity is considered as ability to create new and useful things and/or to add new and useful features for existing things. Each person has talent to innovate, but to demonstrate the creativity, it is necessary to be in good physical and mental conditions, possess special knowledge, and regularly practice in the use of the knowledge. In the first half, this course provides some approaches and methods to develop creativity based on ideas of dualism of processes and phenomena, alternative actions, multiple views of objects, and a concept of good classifications. In the second half, students will engage in practical creative activities featuring extensive use of classification to organize information and to generate innovative ideas (hands-on creativity sessions).
This course involves much discussion and exchange of ideas but may be carried out in conventional face-to-face style or in a remote/web-conference style depending on the surrounding situation. The course style will be decided and announced to registered students at the beginning of the quarter.
