We study and develop artificial intelligence systems that can understand language like humans. In particular, by combining findings and technologies of computer science and linguistics, we work on world knowledge acquisition/utilization and text analysis/understanding. Furthermore, we aim at elucidating the mechanisms by which humans understand language and developing systems which incorporate such mechanisms.
In collaboration with computer science laboratories of universities and research institutes, we have developed a site that aggregates worldwide information on COVID-19 (currently for Japanese citizens).
We will have the first meeting with the assigned students on April 1 online and offline.
If you want to have a meeting to discuss the assignment to Kawahara Lab on March 20 or 23, 2020, please make an appointment at this form. The location is the Multimedia Room at the 9th floor, Bldg. 55 N. If you have any questions, please send an email to the mail address below.
