Advanced Communication Design Laboratory

Inventing (designing) communication of the future

It is fun to chat with people, and the use of voice is the best to convey one’s intentions and feelings. So it will be so convenient if we can casually engage in verbal communication with computers and robots. Our laboratory studies the technologies of media content processing and generating and encoding technologies—mainly verbal language interfaces, but also other broad areas—and their communication methods. We will invent (design) communication of the future based on comfortable-to-use networks, which allow anybody to manipulate multimedia as desired.
