工学博士。1979年東京大学大学院工学系計数工学修士。同年三菱電機中央研究所に入所。1982年から86年まで第五世代コンピュータプロジェクト(ICOT)に出向。1991年ソニーコンピュータサイエンス研究所シニアリサーチャ、96年ソニー株式会社アーキテクチャ研究所所長、2005 年ソネット(株)シニアリサーチフェロー。2015年4月よりSTAIR主席研究員。

人工知能、ニューラルネットワーク、コンピュータヒューマンインタラクションの研究等、幅広い分野で研究に従事してきた。コアにあるのは人間(知能)への興味。80年代の第五世代コンピュータプロジェクトにも参画。ソニー(株)およびソネット(株)では ビッグデータ解析、Web マイニング、ネットワークサービスの開発等に従事。

I am a principal research scientist at STAIR Laboratory since April 2015.

I received BS and MS in Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics from University of Tokyo in 1977 and 1979, respectively. I joined Central Research Laboratory of Mitsubishi Electric Corp. in 1979 and engaged in AI research. During 1982 - 1986, I participated in the Fifth Generation Computer Project, and worked at ICOT. Later I received a PhD in Parallel Logic Programming (works in those days) from University of Tokyo in 1991. In 1991, I joined Sony Computer Science Laboratory Inc. and engaged in Computer Human Interaction research, and in 1996 joined Sony Corp. as a head of one of corporate research laboratories. In 2005, I joined So-net Corp, a Sony company, for web related research and development.

I have been engaged in various research areas such as AI, NN, CHI etc. Always motivating me is interest about how human intelligence works. Current research areas are Deep Learning theories and their application to visual recognition, language acquisition, and conversation models.
