【Recruitment Notice】ICT Research Center for Cyber and Real Spaces
|Number of recruits||One Project Associate Professor or Project Assistant Professor, or Project Specially Appointed Researcher (Postdoctoral Researcher)
Interdisciplinary ICT Research Center for Cyber and Real Spaces, Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Tohoku University
|Research field and Human resources required||In future telecommunications, it is expected that people will be able to communicate with each other in the cyber/virtual space with objects and information from the physical/real space they are located.
The successful key to realize such rich telecommunication is to unlock “communication with nonverbal information” by appropriately conveying the subtleties of “non-spoken signals,” which plays an important role in our daily interpersonal understanding. When AI for “verbal information” has become a useful tool to transcend the barriers of language differences, we hope creating AI for “nonverbal information” to build an accessible and inclusive society that accommodates diversities in physical competences, cultures, gender, etc.
In April 2023, the Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Tohoku University will establish a new Interdisciplinary ICT Research Center for Cyber and Real Spaces to accelerate research and development of “telecommunication with nonverbal information” through interdisciplinary integration. This center will synergize basic and applied AI research, networks and security, human sciences (psychology, brain sciences), human-computer interactions, and VR/AR/MR communication technologies, to impact the society with the research results.
We are looking for candidates to promote cutting-edge research focusing on human-computer interactions or VR/AR/MR communication technologies in interdisciplinary collaboration within the university and with our domestic and international partners.
