<Research>

I am interested in embodiment artificial intelligence. I have been working on motion generation, multi-modal sensors, time-series data based on machine learning, especially deep learning.
The research composed of the following projects (Detail is described here):

    • Training with small dataset

    • Multi-modal learning such as Image and tactile sensor

    • Natural language processing (NLP) with robotics

    • Manipulation of flexible objects using multi-DOFs

    • Dynamics motion learning for multi-DOF flexible-joint robots

    • Tool-body assimilation model based on motor babbling
