Founder & Director
EMLS RI Ltd. (Evolution of Mind Life Society Research Institute)
Dr. Yohko Hatada is an evolutionist who established EMLS RI to implement a better future society by all global citizens with symbiotic functions through two ways:
- Understanding of fundamental multi-disciplinary researches;
- Suggesting for implementing functions as global institutions / mechanisms / policy frameworks / regulation / standards / certificates in the real society.
1. Understanding: Dr. Hatada researched and published interdisciplinary academic research in
- Evolutionary Behavioural Population Ecology (M.Sc.: Durham U., UK)
- Evolutionary Developmental Neuroscience (Ph.D: Oxford U., UK)
- Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology, Neural Correlates of Consciousness (Research fellow: Columbia U. USA; UCL, UK; INSERM, France)
- Vajrayana Buddhism (Ordained by the 41st His Holiness Sakya Trizin, Tibetan Buddhism)
- Political Economy, Patent Law, Trade, Law (Ministry of Economy Trade Industry, Japan; Keio U., Japan)
2. Suggesting for implementation: Dr. Hatada proposed
- Party Manifesto for Japanese Political Parties (DPJ, Japan; LDP, Japan)
- AI and Media Reform (DPJ, Japan; LDP, Japan)
- Liquid Democratic system for Musashino City (Tokyo, Japan)
- Capacitating disabled people economically by institutional support for own works (Kagoshima, Japan)
- Democratic Electoral Processes in Digital Era (EuroDIG, WSIS)
- Calling Rights supported by enabling state system (UNESCO)
- Safe and Secure Investigative Journalism System (UN)
- Ethical Standard for Algorithmic Governance (IEEE)
- AI Transparency and Accountability Regulation Policy Framework (EP).
3. EMLS RI: In 2013, Dr. Hatada combined her understanding and expertise into the services of the Evolution of Mind Life Society Research Institute that was founded by her.
EMLS RI researches for better future global society evolution. It proposes policies, institutions and mechanisms for governments, organizations and individuals. It helps to support secure global future AI governance.
Four Research Pillars of EMLS RI:
- E HDS: Evolvability of Humanity, Democracy and Symbiosis increase as civilization develops.
- All individuals hold unique Calling: to pursue throughout life as life-work. Each of us lives own Calling to realise own World Vision (the Vision beyond own interest, the meaning of the interest in the World) of E HDS, which deepens peaceful authenticity and bears genuine responsibility to lead the world from conflicts to a co-operative order.
- Global governance must secure international citizens / organizations / civilization to thrive with accountable institution frameworks and collaborative efforts to build/ evolve global civilization.
- The above three perspectives can align when the individual understanding deepens and connects to the self. Then the individual can consciously feel peaceful fulfilment from within, and the individual internal drive can flow out to develop the functions of the outer world ecosystem with less conflict.
