The DENSO IT LAB Recognition and Learning Algorithm Collaborative Research Chair, established by Tokyo Tech’s School of Computing and Denso IT Laboratory, Inc. (Denso IT Lab), hosted an event at the Meeting on Image Recognition and Understanding (MIRU) 2022, a conference on image recognition held on July 25 in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture.

DENSO IT LAB x TOKYO TECH Discussion Night in MIRU 2022 consisted of two parts. Part 1 was a talk session by three invited speakers from Tokyo Tech and Denso IT Lab. Part 2 was a poster session involving a broad range of students, researchers, and Tokyo Tech and University of Tokyo alumni, which also served as a social gathering.

During his opening remarks, Denso IT Lab CTO Hirotoshi Iwasaki highlighted the importance of transferring basic research outcomes to real applications in a timely fashion, particularly in the fast-moving field of AI. The type of large-scale collaboration implemented by Tokyo Tech and Denso IT Lab seems to be effective in accomplishing this, Iwasaki noted.

Part 1: Invited talk session

Part 1 of the event included talks by the following participants.

Comments from participants

Thoughout the event, feedback from participants was positive. Comments included the following:

  • I was very excited that the invited talks shed light on future AI research.
  • The posters were all so interesting and I learned a lot from them.
  • This large-scale collaboration seems to be fairly new in the information science area.
  • It is intriguing to see research management for this type of academia-industry collaboration.

In his closing remarks, School of Computing Professor Koichi Shinoda, who is also the leader of the collaborative research chair, shared his thoughts. "This collaborative research chair, now consisting of nine faculty members, postdocs, many RAs from Tokyo Tech, and company researchers from Denso IT Lab, has grown into a large research group on image recognition and machine learning. You can expect more research findings to come."
