Course Description:

Students will investigate intelligent informatics

This course focuses on clarifying the mechanisms of information processing and applying that expertise to the development of versatile high-level applications. We study not only how computer systems achieve and transcend human cognitive ability in vision, auditory, language understanding, but also the psychology, brain science, and biological information. The curriculum offers a wide range of topics covering mathematics and information science, including discrete algorithm, intelligent algorithm, statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, cognitive science, biological information, etc. These theories are explored as students investigate how technologies are applied to an application-oriented research project. In our department, we work with algorithmic principles; make use of state-of-the-art technologies; and inspire students to take their knowledge and imagination into new studies.

Associate Professor Xuefeng Liang is with the Department of Intelligence Science and Technology, Graduate School of Informatics. 

His interests include visual perception, computer vision, and pattern recognition.


Our program creates an environment for discovering science and enjoying the fun of research, and trains students to think independently, free their minds, and embrace the spirit of innovation. We expect students to make passionate use of the excellent learning opportunities provided by Kyoto University in classes, seminars, and by using the learning support services. We genuinely encourage students to seek help when necessary and to be in a fit state to learn state-of-the-art technologies of informatics. Meanwhile, communicating and cooperating with classmates and university staff, meeting the requirements of the course and taking responsibility for personal development are all part of the program at Kyoto University.
