Offices in USA and Japan.

P.L.A.C.E. -- the human factors that we consider in computing.

Intelligent Informatics Initiative (I3) promotes advancement of informatics in various domains. We utilize Soft Computing approach (centric to Fuzzy Sets and Logic) that often leads to a breakthrough for issues that the above human factors are significantly involved.  Our experienced domains include, but are not necessarily limited to, Finance, E-Commerce, Health Records, Linguistics, Networks, Security, Privacy, Trust, Computer Games, Education and Engineering. Such diversified experiences very likely bring solutions that are not only novel and unique but also enlightening and convincing.  Our activities take place on the globe, thus we are always stimulated by peers in the world and are never stagnant.
