Interaction Research Group

 Our communication environment research group aims to enhancements and exploration of communication environment technology that supports ICT-based business of the future. Especially we focus on following three research topics;
・A communication environment that understands the states of conversation scenes among the participants.
・A communication environment that supports people in distant sites working collaboratively
・A communication environment that supports people communicating actively among them.
Group Leader Noboru Miyazaki

Agents that Encourage Emotions and Intelligence

Personal contact with people and nature can produce tranquility and a sense of warmth. Occasionally, quite by chance, we experience the pleasure of intellectual insight or learn something surprising and extraordinary. During calm reflection, we realize that the accumulation of such slight events enhances our lives. Yet faced with such social developments as urbanization, computerization, smaller nuclear families, and aging societies, people tend to feel more stress and unease in their lives...read more

Lexical and Syntactic Learning in Children

We are unique animals because we use language for complicated social communication and conceptual problem solving. Although human children appear to acquire easily language within a few years of birth, a computer cannot learn a human language like human children, even if we use very advanced technology represented by current computer science. Our aim is to clarify how children acquire language and to apply scientific evidence to support parenting and early education with ICT technology...read more
