Information system is playing a more and more important role for conducting smooth communications and effective society activities. It has the enormous potential power to change our life deeply, and to affect extremely wide areas. Thus, in order to study the information system well, we should not be limited to the conventional research fields, but rather challenge the interdisciplinary approaches.
The mission of the Information Processing Dept. is:
Conducting the education and research about Human Centered Information Science and Technology.
In our department, we take the fusion of interdisciplinary research subjects, fusion of approaches, and fusion of values about science & technology and human & society as our fundamental policies, in order to promote: 1, comprehensive education & research about human information and engineering technology by taking perspectives of Human Science, Information Technology, Infrastructure System, Measure & Control technology; 2, creative education & research about leading-edge Information System in near future which is convenient to all human beings.
In order to conduct these merged education & research mentioned before, we employ the leading experts in the following fields as our faculty members:
1, Information Technology, Human Science and Infrastructure System;
2, Human Information, Vision & Audition & Sense information processing system, Human Interface, Image & Sound & Brain information, Human Communication, Integration of Multimodal Sensory Information;
3, Image Processing, Presence Communication, Multimodal Processing, Remote Medical Technology, Network Interface, Super High Performance Parallel Computation, Computer Graphics;
4, Multidimensional Signal Processing, System-on-a-chip, Security, Neural Network, Microprocessor, Ultrasonography, Actuator, Somatometry.
Information Processing Department is not for students from some specific area, but for students from extremely wide areas, like Mathematics, Physics & Applied Physics, Electronics & Information, Measurement & Controlling, Mechanics, Chemistry & Applied Chemistry, etc. Based on the fundamentals learned during their undergraduates, students are educated by the unique & new perspective of our department. As a result, they can master the technical knowledge, and the ability to do the advanced research work.
Numbers of our alumnus are very successful in wide areas of academia & industries after they obtained research & develop abilities based on our new education system. On the other hand, we also aim at training leading researchers in their field. Through lots of supporting measures and the doctoral curriculum, we are making efforts to build the necessary fundamentals to help them stand on their own feet.
