    [Key Words]
    • Development of stand-alone suppliers for life infrastructure
    • Handwork DX
    • Development of best friend AI that accompanies you for your well-being
    • Exploratory Research on Biomimetic Materials/Systems for Achieving SDGs
    [Research Themes]
    • We develop water and electricity supply systems that can be maintained by individual households or small municipal units even when separated from the rest of the community by a disaster.
    • We work on the automation of manual labor - from kitchen work to micro-farming - using micro-controllers. The goal is to develop a fundamental technology that will easily engage anyone to dual-income with a small cost, and to ensure a stable income.
    • We are developing a learning machine that determines a person's psychological state based on human facial expressions and gestures, which are expressed in less than one second.
    • We recognize that in order to maintain symbiosis between human society and other living systems, it is important to better understand one aspect of life as a "proliferable resource" and to use it in a cyclical and planned manner. We will continue our exploratory research on how to cover the necessary resources from life and how to achieve control over the amount of resources by proliferation of the organisms themselves.
