Human Activity in the World.

Making a fantastic goal at a football game, playing an instrument, spreading manure over the field, watering flowers, manufacturing a trial, caring elderly people, or performing an operation by doctor..., what we commonly have here is human "activity". If we can automatically track the human activity, a computer will be able to support or provide a new service for these activities. Those can be utilized not only for entertainment such sports or instruments, but also for agriculture or medical care which are crucial domains for human beings. In our laboratory, we are developing a system by which accelerometer information from smartphones such as iPhones or Androids is easily and globally gathered, and based on the information, researching technique which will be utilized to various services by recognizing those activities automatically. So far, large-scale data about 40,000 records from 250 people has been gathered, and our study also attracts attention from the world.

Curing Future Diseases.

Today, the increasing cost of national health care is a serious problem in the nation. Young people who will enter the workforce several years later could bear a tens of thousands of yens larger tax than today. To avoid this, "preventive medical care" will play an important role. Under this concept, people receive treatment before getting ill even without going to the hospital. In our laboratory, we are researching with Tokyo University, Kyushu University, many hospitals, and medical checkup service providers, on the scheme to monitor and capitalize on biological, behavioral, and health information of patients for preventive medical care by applying computer technology. So far, approximately 300 subjects have participated in our experiments, and we have conducted advanced data analysis on information obtained from those subjects, provided feedback of results to them at the right time, and thereby found that these processes improved their health, encouraged them to exercise, and helped discover their crises early. Through advanced data analysis and application technologies, information science and technology will be able to provide "information as a drug," which is expected to be as effective as real drugs.
