Hidenori Kawamura, Professor
Graduate School of Information Science and Technology,
Hokkaido University, Japan


Dr. Hidenori Kawamura is Professor at Graduate School of Information Science, Hokkaido University, Japan. He received the Dr of Engineering from Hokkaido University in 2000. He has been working in Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Hokkaido University since 2000. He is currently a professor of Hokkaido University. He was also an overseas research fellow for Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) from 2007 to 2008. His current research activities are on Artificial Intelligence and he is working on Neural Network, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Evolutionary System, Multi-Agent Simulation, Data Mining, Robotics, and so on.


In this presentation, some of the collaborative works that the presenter is carrying out with other universities and companies will be introduced. One of the collaborative studies is about an autonomous driving by “Mutual Concession,” which is like a human know what to do without exchanging words. The experiments were done with radio-controlled cars using deep learning. Another study is for image recognition of fashion. There are impressive words without a clear definition, such as “subdued color”, “natural and effortless” and “girlish”. There is some common perception of impressive features that are heavily influenced by consumer subjectivity and difficult to define precisely. Therefore, the presenter built an AI for structuring and digitizing the image. The other example is about an automatic Haiku generation using deep learning. This collaborative research contributes to the development of advanced technology for creating documents with AI. The AI can accurately express the situation in short sentences through haiku generation that requires “sensitivity” and “creativity” like human beings. More examples using AI will be introduced.
