The Honda Research Institute Japan (HRI-JP) and the Graduate School of Informatics at Kyoto University are undertaking joint research to further accelerate research into artificial intelligence (AI).

Professor Takatsune Kumada, who specializes in psychoinformatics, will head up the project, and Professor Hisashi Kashima, department head, will also play a key role. 

Professor Kumada said, “We have high expectations for Honda’s creativity and technological strengths as well as HRI’s research and development capability. Creating a new concept of AI and presenting it to our society is also a very attractive challenge for us in the world of academia. Also we would like to explore new ways of collaboration between industry and academia through this project.”

Hiroshi Tsujino, president and CEO, HRI-JP, commented, “RI has a long history of conducting joint research with the Department of Intelligence Science and Technology at Graduate School of Kyoto University, which has top-class researchers in a range of areas that include discovering how human beings process information, theory establishment and intelligent information processing. Through this new project we have just begun, we would like to continue proposing new AI research.”
