Research Interests

Japan is the first country that became a hyper-aged society in 2007. This demographic movement provokes many issues from personal scale to social scale like labor force reduction, health care, and regional revitalization. Information media technologies such as, virtual reality, IoT, and social media, make fusion of cyber world and real world: human, community, and society. These technologies can re-design the society in a way that diverse people can make use of their skills and participate in their society in a diverse way.
Understanding of society and human beings as a system, we are conducting research that augments both human and society: physical skill transferring using VR, teleworking using telepresence robot, and activating crowdsourcing through social media.
