    Aiming to realize a safe, secure, comfortable and inclusive society by clarifying the mechanism of “Learning” from human characteristics.

Realizing an inclusive society by clarifying the mechanism of “Learning”

In this course, we will create an innovative “Learning” aiming to realize an inclusive society where everyone can play active roles in the super smart society (Society 5.0). We will also establish a methodology for developing diverse human resources and explore sharing methods with novel evaluation axes by clarifying the mechanism of human “Learning”. Specifically, we will systematize methods for sensing human physiological and psychological condition, effective feedback methods for learning, and multiple evaluation methods by focusing on human “Learning”.
Our research areas are based on knowledge of ergonomics (human factors), pedagogics, human interface, and technologies of signal processing, AI, XR and more. Our goal is to combine those knowledge and technologies to develop human-centered learning system. In addition, this course features efficient and speedy research suitable for real world by cooperation with Nagase Brothers Inc.
