The Media Information Laboratory is organized into three research groups: media recognition, signal processing, and computing theory.
Today, technological advances are occurring so rapidly that it is as if a technology should have already been realized by the moment someone imagines it. In the media information processing domain, the gap between fundamental and applied research is getting narrower and narrower.
Under such circumstances, we not only pursue principled and theoretical approaches to address various issues, but try to learn as much as possible from findings and experiences in the real world as well. Our goal is to contribute to solving social problems and creating a prosperous society through our activities.
