Our primary research interests is in the development of statistical learning methods, which gives foundation for data science and deep learning. Due to the recent public interests in artificial intelligence and machine learning, various industries are seeking a way to make good use of it. In solving real-world problems, however, what is required for data scientists is not only to have deep understanding on various machine learning methods, but also to become familiar with the domain of the facing problem. In this regard, we put an emphasis on dealing with real-world data, and always use it for evaluating proposing methods.
One of the characteristics of this group is its focus on biology and chemistry, such as developing methods for handling genes and chemical compounds, however, our research interests is not limited to these areas.
