As many of you know, I have a close working relationship with the Osaka Institute of Technology, Japan. As a result of our collaboration, Koji Hitomi and Kohei Fukuyama will be working in our BISITE Research Group until November. These two Japanese students belong to the Robotics Engineering Department of the Robotics and Design Faculty, an innovative campus located in the centre of the Japanese Osaka City.

Both of them have fantastic ideas for innovation and their own projects. Koji is researching about reinforcement learning technologies. It is a type of machine learning, in which the agent’s behaviour complies with the obtained results. It is frequently used in the games industry and the automotive sector. During his stay in Spain, he will work on improving his algorithm which will allow him to get a greater understanding of autonomous vehicles control.

Meanwhile, his colleague Kohei is working on a project entitled Deep net Technology, in which researches deep learning. This technology is based on a structure which imitates the human brain. Therefore, it is possible to automatically extract and learn about the characteristics of input data. In collaboration with our research group, he wants to improve his current project on odour detection systems, improving the learning approach of several machines.

We will definitely learn a lot from Koji and Kohei and will exchange ideas with them for future projects.

Welcome to our group!
