Environmental Information Science Laboratory

Itaru SANO
Professor

Aerosols, Remote Sensing
Information on aerosols has been attracting attention as a path toward understanding air pollution data represented by PM2.5 particulate levels, changes in cloud properties in weather phenomenon, the impact on controlling global warming, and the like. To understand aerosol data, we conduct research from many different angles, including global satellite observations and local ground measurements.

Multi-Agent Laboratory

Shiro TAKATA
Professor

Intelligent Informatics, Modal Logic
For robots to work together with humans requires the ability to understand common purposes and goals. Accordingly, we are conducting research on software to enable each to understand the mind of the other with the aim of embedding this software in robots.

Mathematical Information Engineering Laboratory

Kiyoharu TAGAWA
Professor

Mathematical Information Engineering, Optimization Methods, Statistics
The design of goods and systems can be described as an optimization problem. We study algorithms that will efficiently find the best solution to an optimization problem from among a number of candidate solutions. However, optimization problems having more than one measure of the goodness of a solution may not have only a single solution that is the best solution. So, we determine groups of multiple different solutions called Pareto optimal solutions.

Logic Information System Laboratory

Takashi ISHIMIZU
Lecturer

Parallel Algorithms
In the same way that a single task can be completed sooner if performed by 10 people, using 10 computers to perform a single task means it can be processed more quickly. This laboratory does research on methods for using multiple computers working cooperatively on various processing tasks.

Image Processing Laboratory

Mikiya HIRONAGA
Lecturer

Multispectral Imaging, Image Analysis
The colors of objects photographed using a camera are affected by the light source and the sensor, and are thus not the colors as seen by people with their eyes. We conduct research to estimate these effects and develop computer graphics that can reproduce the colors of objects accurately.
