Here at Dolylab (Prof. Sugaya Midori: Doly), our research focuses on emotion classification research, its innovative application, or system development, and so on.

Research regarding emotion classification will require the following additional knowledge, on top of basic computer science subjects.

  • Measurement of biological information, analysis of the measured data (from heart rate sensor, brain wave measurement), signal processing and analysis
  • Statistical analysis
  • Machine learning
  • Application (Robot, Embedded system, Computer Graphics and so on)

The IGP students will not only systematically learn this knowledge, but also support laboratory students in their research. We strongly wish to create the most suitable education method for IGP students by combining the IGP curriculum and the lab curriculum.
