Makoto Onizuka Professor

As represented by the phrase “Data is the new oil”, it is expected to make social impact by discovering knowledge from Big data. In the real world, since databases are managed independently in multiple companies, it is important to research and develop technology that integrates and analyzes those heterogeneous databases. We are engaged in research on a technical field of distributed/parallel data analysis, efficient graph analysis algorithms, and exploratory data mining. We publish our papers at top conferences, such as VLDB, SIGMOD, ICDE, EDBT, KDD, AAAI and also collaborate with major industries for practical research.

Yuki Arase Associate Proffesor

Languages are so familiar with us; we read, speak, and write text daily. But at the same time, languages are so mysterious. We don’t know how we process them to think and communicate. I’m working on natural language processing with the dream of unveiling this secret hidden in our brains.

Chuan Xiao Associate Proffesor

I am engaged in Onizuka laboratory's project on the research and development of data integration systems, taking part in project management and student supervision. My research interests also include information retrieval, textual data management, and spatio-temporal databases.

Yasuhiro Fujiwara Guest Associate Professor

My research interests are in the areas of data engineering, data mining, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Due to the rapid developments of database and internet technologies, it is possible to manage large volumes of data in high capacity systems. I work on developing of computationally efficient algorithms for large and complex problem.

Yuya Sasaki Assistant Professor

Research is necessary to create a new and better world. I am trying to generate new ideas and concepts through research activities such as writing papers and social implementation. It gives us great experiences and opportunities. Research is really enjoyable and fantastic.

My research interests are in the areas of graph processing and optimization.

Hajime Kumami D4 (10月入学)

Seiji Maekawa D3

Graphs are unifying abstractions that represent real- and digital-world phenomena. However, graph-related problems typically run into difficulties due to the huge number of combinations in graphs. Thus, I am interested in finding the optimal or semi-optimal solution at a reasonable time. My research interests include graph mining and graph database systems. My hobbies are judo and basketball.

Chenhui Chu Collaborator

My research interests center on natural language processing, particularly machine translation and multimodal machine learning. To overcome the language barrier, I have been studied machine translation for a long time. To better understand the diverse and difficult language phenomenons, I am also studying novel approaches that use multimodal data such as images.
