<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 following projects (Detail is described here):

  • 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
