Here we introduce NTT research centers in specific fields.
At the Machine Learning and Data Science Center, we are solving issues in big data by taking a multidisciplinary approach to implementing an advanced and scientifically tested big data analysis framework based on machine learning.
The Innovative Photonic Network Center (IPC) aims to establish the base technologies toward a scalable petabit-class optical network that can accommodate future increases in traffic driven by the expansion of cloud services and spread of smartphones.
The Nanophotonics Center utilizes nanophotonics technology to conduct innovative research with the aim of establishing large-scale photonic integration technology that integrates optical devices with various functions in large numbers at high density, and reducing energy consumption of photonic information processing to the absolute minimum.
The Research Center for Theoretical Quantum Physics sees the potential for quantum information science as it relates to computation, measurement, and communication. The Center will develop a deeper understanding of physical systems determined by strong quantum mechanical correlation, and by engaging in fundamental interpretation of quantum physics, will identify trends in new technology from various perspectives.
BMC promotes basic and applied research such as biocompatible new materials, biosensing technology, medical care and behavioral information analysis technology, and co-innovation with partners.
The NTT Smart Data Science Center conducts R&D on practical data analysis and AI technology for value creation from data based on actual problems.
Our mission is to formulate strategies and research plans so we can promote the Digital Twin Computing (DTC) concept, promote societal implementation by integrating technologies and services, conduct research and development into key technologies, and build a collaborative system with external partners aimed at academic research, technology development, and social implementation.
It will work on establishing a basic theoretical framework for modern mathematics and will take on the challenge of clarifying the basic principles behind the superior power of quantum computing, which still require clarification. It will also seek to contribute to NTT's R&D aimed at realizing the IOWN concept by proposing the use of modern mathematics in groundbreaking new approaches to various research problems, including the elucidation of unknown diseases and the discovery of new drugs.
