Uchida-Kraepelin performance test and DX (Digital Transformation)

Dealing with human characteristics with DX

The Uchida-Kraepelin performance test is the best way to handle a person's " Capability traits" and "Behavioral and personality traits " with DX (digital transformation).

DX definition

Digital transformation is the concept that "the penetration of IT will change people's lives for the better in every way ", and it is said that it was proposed by Professor Eric Stortermann of Umeå University in Sweden in 2004, and is generally said to be. Abbreviated as DX.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan defines DX as follows in the "DX Promotion Guidelines".

Companies respond to drastic changes in the business environment, utilize data and digital technologies to transform products, services, and business models based on the needs of customers and society, as well as the business itself, Group, processes, and corporate culture.・ To change the climate and establish a competitive advantage.

Uchida-Kraepelin performance test and DX

At first glance, the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test, which is taken using paper and pencil, seems to have nothing to do with digital.
However, in reality, the unique inspection method of handling only the "work" of adding numbers and the "data" of the amount of work per minute and the number of incorrect answers is digital by nature.
The graphs and sentences displayed on the Results sheet are merely visualizations of digital data so that humans can easily see them.

Uchida-Kraepelin performance test There are two main types of data that can be derived from the Kraepelin test.

  1. Raw test data such as amount of work per minute, number of incorrect answers, age, etc.
  2. Judgment Results data obtained by passing raw data through the judgment model

The judgment model is a function obtained by comparing raw data with clinical data (General Working style style, learning style, compatibility with specific tasks, accidents, health, etc.), and is the most suitable for the purpose that changes with the times. It is constantly upgraded to improve sharpness.

If you use the cloud judgment of the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test, a CSV file will be provided, which is the Results data generated when the raw data is judged by a specific model.

If there is a judgment model that matches the purpose, the Results data can be used, and if there is no matching model, the relationship between raw data or existing Results data and clinical data is analyzed by AI. It is also possible to develop a new model.

Please use the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test to realize DX.

DX proposal example) Use of Uchida-Kraepelin performance test to reduce traffic accidents

The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) Goal 3 “Health and Welfare for All” includes Target 6 “Reducing fatalities and injuries from road accidents by half”.
There are many ways to reduce traffic accidents, but here we will consider a method that utilizes the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test.

To determine whether the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test can be used, it is necessary to investigate whether the Capability traits of human ability, Behavioral and personality traits correlate with traffic accidents. Comparing the Results of the group that caused the accident and the group that has never caused a traffic accident, it is known that the distribution of the characteristics of Capability traits and Behavioral and personality traits is clearly different.

We tentatively set the criteria for distinguishing between safety and danger, and using actual data, we divided the accident group and the accident-free group into two groups, A and B, respectively, and the results were as follows. ..

Accident group Accident-free group
Group A 38% 76%
Group B 62% twenty four%
total 100% 100%

Looking at this, it is not possible to completely separate the accident victims from the accident-free ones, but at least it can be said that Group A is a safer group than Group B.

So, if Group B doesn't drive a car, consider whether the accident rate will drop.
It is said that the probability that Japanese people will have a car accident in recent years is about 1% per year, so let's apply the above table to a group of 10,000 people in total.

Accident group Accident-free group
Group A 38 people 7524 people
Group B 62 people 2376 people
total 100 people (1%) 9900 people (99%)

Group A accident rate: 38 ÷ 7524 ≒ 0.5%
Group B accident rate: 62 ÷ 2376 ≒ 2.6%
So Group B is more than five times more dangerous than Group A, so if Group B decides not to drive, the accident rate will drop from 1% to 0.5%.
In other words, it is possible to "reduce traffic accidents by half."
However, not letting Group B drive (not giving a license) is not realistic because even 2,376 accident-free people will not be able to drive.
That's where IT comes in.
For example, the same effect could be achieved by preferentially switching from Group B to ASVs (advanced safety vehicles) and self-driving cars.

In Japan today, there are very few traffic accidents in the world, but it is clear that even in Japan, the reduction will be even more effective in countries where the license system and traffic rules are not in place.
Health and welfare for all.
