Travelling, listening to audio-books, and riding a bicycle
School days' Dream
To get knowledge about everything, it was my school days' dream.
Current Dream
Every motivated student has many abilities. To display students' talents is my current dream.
When I was a school boy, my grandmother told me many times: All things that are created or done by you must be very good. Every time, when I start a new project, I recall these words.
Favorite Books
V. Pekelis, Small Encyclopedia of Big Cybernetics (in Russian), 1970. I received this book as an award at the graduation ceremony at my high school. I read it within two days. I understood that programming and computers is my major for university study.
Messages for Students
Every student should say him/herself: I must contribute to the society to get the leading positions for Japan in the world!

Main research

Semantic Methods for Information Retrieval

A new trend in computer technologies to store all the data in the cloud is rapidly gaining popularity among computer manufactures, operating systems developers, and users. As a result, there is a strong demand for intelligent semantic search technologies supporting retrieval of appropriate information from the Internet.

Web Apps with Machine Learning System TensorFlow

TensorFlow is a brand new machine learning system released by Google in November 2015 as an open source project under an Apache 2.0 license. Nowadays, mobile device users have accepted and come to expect accurate speech recognition, language translation, human-like interpretation of photos and videos, and anticipated search results. These are all the result of Google's machine learning.
Students involved in this research will begin to study TensorFlow in detail. They should find news application areas of this tool, for example computer security, opinion mining, etc. Designing a WebApp, running using this machine learning system, is the final goal of this research.
