Aiming to improve the collaboration and productivity of human beings, we conduct research from the following two standpoints: basic research on pattern recognition, media processing, machine learning, and knowledge discovery; and applied research on collaboration support and medical and welfare informatics based on the findings of the basic research.
In the basic research, we study the theoretical foundations of pattern recognizer training methods, speech/image recognition algorithms, and machine learning/knowledge discovery algorithms, aiming to contribute to a wide range of science and engineering disciplines.
In the applied research, we are developing an experimental remote collaboration support system, termed "t-Room," to create a media realm beyond time and space. Specifically, we are engaged in research on advanced multimedia information processing and communication, including the development of technologies to edit high-quality images, the application of communication networking technologies, and the development of intelligent human interfaces.
Our laboratory includes two experimental apparatuses for the remote collaboration support system, "t-Room", to enable testing regarding "the sense of being in the same room." The equipment enables the development of t-Room controlling software as well as the application of basic research findings on pattern recognition, media processing, machine learning, and knowledge discovery.
By conducting your research with a transdisciplinary approach in this research environment, you will be able to contribute and make a difference in academia. This transdisciplinary approach requires knowledge and skills in the following areas: the technologies of media processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, and knowledge discovery, based on theory and mathematics; and the utilization of these technologies in human collaborative environments. The supervising professor will guide you in acquiring these skills and knowledge and in accomplishing your research.
