With a standing-room-only crowd of more than 300 people overflowing the auditorium into the multipurpose room next door, and hundreds more watching a live telecast to Keio University in Tokyo, the program also featured short talks by scientists who provided first-hand recognition of the impact that Akaike and his AIC have had in various fields. The talks are now available for on-demand viewing from the Calit2 Multimedia archive.

The other Kyoto Prize Symposium events in San Diego highlighted this year's prizewinners in two other categories: advanced technology, awarded to Stanford geneticist Leonard Herzenberg, who spoke at San Diego State University; and arts and philosophy, for which fashion designer Issey Miyake was honored this year. He spoke at the University of San Diego.
The Kyoto Prize is an international award honoring those who have contributed significantly to humankind's scientific, cultural, and spiritual development. Consisting of academic honors, a commemorative gold medal and a cash gift of approximately $450,000, the prize is Japan's highest private award for human achievement.
