Data/Simulation Laboratory

Using data and simulations to scientifically examine urban cities and environment

There are many phenomena in society and urban cities that can be understood through data analyses and simulations. We are building a computer-generated artificial society and reproducing various phenomena to evaluate and analyze policies as well as countermeasures. We are trying to answer questions such as how environmental problems impact local residents; how the health of evacuees in the wake of a disaster is managed; and what the optimal countermeasures to solve urban problems are.

Study Fields

For Society

We conduct computer simulations on policies and countermeasures, which cannot be implemented in the real society, by creating an artificial society or urban city. We use artificial society simulations to propose or evaluate new policies.
