Cooperative Research Projects I
Integrated photonics technologies have proven useful for quantum information processing experiments using photons. In this talk, I introduce our attempts to develop quantum information systems using silicon- or silica-based on-chip optical waveguides.
To understand information processing in the brain for future applications in artificial intelligence, firing patterns of living neurons cultured on micropatterns that define the connectivity between neurons are investigated. Here, we report on the results from computational analyses to understand spontaneous firing of single neurons in autaptic culture.

Identification of the contributors’ genders from posts in the social media has been finding applications in different fields like forensics, literature, security, marketing, trade etc. Researchers have found that the writing styles of authors of the same gender share certain aspects, which can be captured by certain stylometric features (SF). Moreover, word vectors can be constructed from the text to determine the gender of the author. In this paper, we build deep neural network models by applying these approaches to identify the author’s gender from Bengali texts. We evaluate the performance of our model using a new dataset of user posts in Facebook Groups. Our proposed approach shows 76.28% accuracy and 85.91% F1-score in determining gender from the text.
Projects & Urgent
This paper describes time-of-flight imagers with sub-100 um range precision. Such a high range precision is obtained by our proposed techniques: indirect TOF method with impulse photocurrent response, jitter reduction techniques using reference plane sampling. Using those techniques, the range precision is improved up to 52 um and 27 um at single frame and 10-frame averaging, respectively.

With the new safety guidance implemented as the new norm after the Pandemic (e.g. facial cover, distance), it is critical to develop new models to understand emotion with reduced cues (e.g. partial face). We will study cross-racial effect on facial expressions between Taiwanese and Japanese, with the whole face or part of the face. The goal is to develop a computational model to characterize the cultural effect in facial emotion recognition.
Cooperative Research Projects II
The collaboration between MIT and RIEC on the research of the new in-storage/memory computing platform for brain neuro-science strongly enhances the inter-discipline academic approach to unveil the microscopic and multi-scale neuron topological analytics as well as the functions with intelligent in-storage/memory computation scheme. The collaboration establishes the academic foundation as opportunities of future joint research projects such as in-situ expansion sequencing computation or whole brain neuromorphic computation.

Since "Crowmunication Project (カラスと対話するプロジェクト) " as a wildlife countermeasure, our study group has been exploring ways to improve rural issues through open-source UAV research and development. In this report, we introduce our activities to utilize open-source UAVs, involving students and the local community, based at the Japan Aviation Academy located in the Noto Peninsula, an aging and depopulated area.
