In and Around Science Bldg. 7

Hagiya Laboratory
Masami Hagiya / Tsukasa Fukunaga

With background in formal logic, our laboratory is seeking for new computational models, developing new methods for analyzing and verifying such models, and implementing new tools for analysis and verification. While our main target is software systems and programming languages, we also deal with molecular and biological systems, and we are currently doing research on molecular computing.

Imai Laboratory
Hiroshi Imai / Hidefumi Hiraishi
  1. Design and analysis of algorithms. In particular, geometric algorithms and their application to computational algebra, discrete system and optimization, including system analysis.
  2. Giving impact to new disciplines, such as computational biology, database theory, geographic information system, vehicle navigation, knowledge discovery, on the basis of the study of algorithms.
  3. Quantum computation and quantum information science
Suda Laboratory
Reiji Suda / Masaharu Matsumoto
Parallel numerical processing
Kobayashi Laboratory
Naoki Kobayashi / Takeshi Tsukada

We study theoretical foundations for software, and their applications to programming languages, program verification, and program transformation. The recent topics include automated program verification based on higher-order model checking.

Igarashi Laboratory
Takeo Igarashi / Tsukasa Fukusato
User interface, computer graphics
Sugiyama Laboratory
Masashi Sugiyama / Issei Sato / Junya Honda

We study various topics in machine learning.

  1. Fundamental theories of supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning.
  2. Practical algorithms of supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning.
  3. Applications in natural sciences and industries.
Miyao Laboraltory
Yusuke Miyao / Katsuhiko Hayashi

Our research is focused on natural language processing and computational linguistics. Examples include:

  1. Computational model of language and language analysis technologies: e.g. syntax/semantics, parsing, semantic analysis
  2. Application of natural language processing: e.g. machine translation, question answering, dialog systems
  3. Grounding of language to non-linguistic data (e.g. visual data, statistical data).
Yoshimoto Laboratory
Yoshihide Yoshimoto

Computational science is a new approach in the science after the experimental and the theoretical approaches and has developed with the exponential evolution of computers. By utilizing the first-principles electronic structure calculation as a core, the laboratory carries out the educations and researches in the interface region between computer science and compuational science.

Kato Laboratory
Shinpei Kato

Our research interests include operating systems, real-time systems, and parallel and distributed systems, with a particular emphasis on resource management for heterogeneous computing environments composed of many cores, GPUs, and FPGAs. We also work on parallel processing on those processors and its performance analysis. Furthermore, we develop autonomous vehicles, high-definition 3D maps, and online machine learning frameworks.

Takamaeda Laboratory
Shinya Takamaeda

The center of our research interests is computer architecture. We are pursuing various researches on highly-efficient next generation computers, such as custom computing employing FPGA and domain-specific hardware, algorithm/hardware co-design for machine learning, and high-level synthesis compiler for productive hardware design environment.
