Contemporary society relies heavily upon the massive amount of information connected to each other via the Internet. Social progress will depend upon the establishment and continuous revision of technologies to enable the rapid and accurate transmission of data, and technologies to allow a quick search of the massive volume of data to retrieve required information in a timely manner. For this reason, we will conduct fundamental research on database, multimedia information systems, web/SNS data mining, and information retrieval and recommendation. We also conduct application-oriented research such as sightseeing informatics, investment informatics, and informational nutrition (information access) in cooperation with domain experts.
