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.

SANO Itaru

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Environmental Information Science Laboratory
Aerosols, Remote sensing

Understanding of aerosol properties is impotant role in the climate research. The aim of this work is to estimate aerosol properties by remote sensing from space and ground.

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.

KASHIWAO Tomoaki

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Soft Computing and Optical Design Laboratory
LED Packaging, Soft Computing, Control Theory

My research interests include LED packaging optimal design based on ray-tracing simulation and machine learning, and big-data analysis of a railway telemeter system.

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.).

TAKEMOTO Yasuhiko

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Industrial Management Engineering
Industrial Management Engineering, Quality Management, Operational Research, Applied Statistics

Industrial Management is a activity of achieving efficiency, rationalization, and optimization in production systems. This laboratory researches and develops some methods of Industrial Management based on data science and ICT.

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.

MIZOBUCHI Shoji

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Natural Language Processing Laboratory
Natural Language Processing

This laboratory uses text data on the Web to gain important information from them. Based on this, we conduct research into technologies to search for needed information and make practical use of it.

HIRONAGA Mikiya

Position
Lecturer
Laboratory
Image Processing Laboratory
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.

FUKUTA Youji

Position
Lecturer
Information Security
