What are the core research subjects in computer science and engineering? This question may be difficult to answer in our modern society where computers have been used in almost all areas and there are various different demands on computer systems.

Our department think that the following research topics would play key roles for providing sophisticated and highly reliable computer systems.

  1. Design of high speed and reliable computer architectures.
  2. Efficient and high quality software development and large scale software development.
  3. Natural language understanding and processing. Development of high performance inference systems and expert systems
  4. Pattern recognition and image processing. As their applications, improvement of interfaces between computer and human.

These are research topics studied and taught in our department. For more detail, please see laboratories for each groups' research topics.
