About Us

近年、脳の機能やその生理学的知見の多大な蓄積が進むなか、脳神経網をモデルにした学習機能をもつソフトウェアによる情報処理機構が長足な発展を示している。特に深層学習(deep learning)と呼ばれる機械学習方式は、人間の柔らかな知能の実現を強く示唆する機能をもつことが明らかになり、これを期に近年GoogleやFacebookを含む多数の企業が人工知能に関する研究所を設立している。



In recent years, as knowledge of brain functions and their physiological aspects has been accumulated, information processing mechanisms based on software that has learning functions modeled on neural networks in human brains have rapidly and greatly evolved. Especially, it is shown that a machine-learning approach called deep learning has functions that strongly suggest the realization of flexible intelligence of humans. Taking this opportunity, numerous companies including Google and Facebook established research institutes for artificial intelligence.

Meanwhile, computers continue to become widespread and popular as a social infrastructure which is essential for our life. It is even hard to find a service which is benefit little from computers: mobile phones, automobiles, transportation, business transactions, financial services, entertainments, and so forth. Therefore, the importance of software technology is further increasing because it is one of elemental technologies that are essential for making computers operate efficiently and correctly as intended. Moreover, from the viewpoint of making the results of artificial intelligence researches accessible to the general public, the research on software technology and its development are important.

In light of the background, we believe that it should be meaningful to establish a research institute dedicated to study and development of artificial intelligence and software technology from various aspects and meet a social need technically, and hence contribute to social development and people development, which are the core missions of universities.
