The Media Information Laboratory is organized into five research groups: media recognition, signal processing, computational modeling, biomedical informatics, and computing theory. We are promoting basic researches on information processing technology and fundamental principles related to "media", which is a medium for transmitting information in communication.

"Media" is a medium for transmitting information in communication among people or between people and computers. It can also be regarded as data obtained by observing various information in the real world and virtual world. Based on this idea, not only sounds and images that can be observed through sight and hearing, various observable data from real and cyber worlds can be subject to media information processing.

In this way, we take a broader view of the state of media information processing. We are aiming to approach the fundamental principle of communication and to develop technologies that enrich our lives in the real world and virtual world --- by bringing together the experience and knowledge of experts in a wide range of fields such as real-world measurement, modeling, signal processing, media recognition understanding, media generation, and the basic mathematical theories and algorithms that support them.
