Our laboratory has been conducting researches mainly in Robot Audition and Environment Understanding since we started as Nakadai Laboratory in 2006.
In July 2017, we launched the next-generation AI robotics joint research laboratory with Honda Research Institute Japan Co., Ltd. (HRI-JP), and made a fresh start.
We are working on creating new fields that combine AI/Machine Learning, Robotics, Signal/Speech Processing in addition to core research in robot audition and scene analysis such as sound source localization, sound source separation, and automatic speech recognition.
For the benefits of joint research laboratory, we have a system that enables students who have been assigned to this laboratory to proceed in their researches not only in this university but also in HRI-JP. We operate our laboratory in cooperation with Imura Laboratory and Hayakawa Laboratory.
