Department of Intelligent Systems


The Department of Intelligent Systems conducts research and education to explore theories and techniques for acquiring, enriching, and circulating real-world information in areas that span human intelligence, sensibility, body and information systems.
As a theoretical and technological foundation, students learn processing of images and videos, audio and acoustics, behavior signals, natural languages, applied artificial intelligence, applied data science, and so forth. The Department also offers intelligent user interface, human assist technology, and data analytics for knowledge and skill development in the design of intelligent processing systems. We also conduct research in various fields such as medical, law, history, educational information processing, and so forth, for implementing socially intelligent systems through knowledge and skill development.
Intellectuals having such knowledge and abilities are expected to contribute to society through careers such as technologists who can organically merge existing technologies, tools and frameworks to quickly create new products, persons bringing innovation to public services, and researchers in each of the fields mentioned above.
