In computers, all information is represented as a sequence of characters or “strings.” With our signature phrase “Everything is String” our laboratory studies matching/compression/searching/learning/discovery on string data. Through discovery of novel mathematical characteristics of strings allowing increased data-processing speed and reduced memory usage, we aim to develop not just evolutionary but revolutionary technology. We believe it is most necessary to build timeless and universal fundamental theories not swayed by short-sighted or short-lived applications.
