Research Themes

Building better relationships between humans and machines

My research interest focuses on developing better relationships between machines, such as robots, and humans, for which technologies to help machines understand people (human sensing or HS) and the boundaries between machines and people (human interface or HI) are important. My laboratory is engaged in basic research on computer vision using artificial intelligence and evolutionary computation, HS and visual information processing, as well as applied research, based on physiological and psychological findings, in areas such as HI, human tracking and visual information processing systems for autonomously-operating robots.

Teaching Philosophy

I foster engineers and researchers who can contribute to the community from an international perspective and have the basic academic skills in the fields of science and technology as well as, in the field of engineering, the specialized skills required to resolve problems in intelligence and media information, especially those such as computer vision and human interface.
