My Areas of Research

Cutting-edge research into brain and visual measurement, recognition and understanding and their controls

The robots and computers of the future will need the abilities to understand their surroundings, discover knowledge, think logically and form images to fill in information. Besides aiming to make these abilities reality, we are developing robots and software that are useful in CG-creation software and 3D games, are applied in robot controls and help communities by giving them the ability to make decisions corresponding to highly-trained technicians with expert knowledge and skills, including doctors.

My Teaching Philosophy

“I figure things out. You do the same.”
While preparing lessons and materials, while figuring things out, I always think about how learning can be fun for more people, how the students can be interested, how they can act courageously, how they can keep going without worrying and whether what they learn will be useful to the community. Of course, everyone is different, so please figure out your own best ways of doing things. I hope I will be able to help you a little bit with that.
