OHBOSHI Naoki

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Laboratory of Medical Informatics
Medical Informatics

We apply information technology to medical care safely and without imposing a burden on doctors or patients. To this end, we conduct research on ubiquitous computing, advanced image and video processing, and user-friendly interface technologies.

HANDA Hisashi

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Computational Intelligence Research Group
Evolutionary Computation

Humans and biological life forms appropriately sift through information while achieving intelligent behavior. In this laboratory, we are researching efficient, high-performance learning and evolutionary algorithms inspired by nature and living organisms.

YAMAMOTO Hirofumi

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Spoken Language Processing Laboratory
Spoken Language Processing, Computer Translation

Fostering communications between people who speak different languages is difficult. This laboratory conducts research on using computers to transcend language barriers.

WADA Yoshitaka

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Fracture Mechanics Laboratory
Machine Learning for CAE surrogate modeling, Computational Mechanics (Automatic Model Generation, Finite Element Simulation), Fracture Mechanics, Crack Propagation Analysis, Non-Contact Strain Measurement

We assume that a cell phone will be dropped. Defects exist in structures. But…neither break immediately. To measure and simulate structural strength and damage caused by crack growth, and to develop and do research on evaluation techniques—these are our themes.

ABE Koji

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Laboratory for Media Informatics and Cognitive Science
Media Informatics, Pattern Recognition, Medical Image Processing, Computer Vision

Our goal is to build an intelligent computer that behaves like a human. We are engaged in research involving image and audio media on a variety of software systems that take into account human subjectivity, experience, and sensitivity.

OCHI Youji

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Information Science and Intelligent Software Laboratory
Educational Information Technology

This lab focuses on the research field known as e-learning, and conducts R&D on sensing technologies and systems to recognize behavior and actions in education and learning. We make full use of application technologies such as artificial intelligence, multi-media technology, and computer vision.

SHIRAHAMA Kimiaki

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Research Group for Multimedia Understanding
Multimedia Information Processing, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Human Activity Recognition

Our research goal is to extract semantic information (e.g., objects, activities, scenes, events, etc.) from multimedia data. Our main approach to this is to analyse patterns, relations and anomalies underlying in different forms of data (e.g., image, video, audio, text, etc.).

HABE Hitoshi

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Computer Vision Laboratory
Computer Vision, Image Processing, Pattern Recognition

We study techniques to process images captured by a camera and understand the things in the image and what is happening in the image. We are working on analyzing group behavior from security cameras as well as the movement of schools of fish in water, and we are tackling development of basic technologies for object recognition.

OTANI Masayuki

Position
Lecturer

HAMASUNA Yukihiro

Position
Lecturer
Laboratory
Fundamentals of Intelligent Informatics Laboratory
Clustering Machine Learning Data Science

This laboratory is promoting greater sophistication in data analysis techniques, in particular, clustering, and is actively working on the development of new data analysis methods that will constitute useful tools for data mining, as well as their application.
