Software is the dense package of information needed to run a computer. That means of course the software commonly found on personal computers, and also the software that runs robots, machinery, household goods and websites. Making these machines operate more cleverly and conveniently requires software to be ever more ingeniously designed, which in turn makes it ever more complex. Developing and maintaining software requires a lot of skill and many tools. The University of Aizu directs its energies in particular into:
- Technologies for producing software that is easy to use and easy to maintain;
- Technologies for producing software that generates new value;
- Technologies for the reliable and efficient development of software.
