2021 New Year's message: Adapting to and creating the new normal

2021 New Year's message: Adapting to and creating the new normal

As we build on our understanding in 2021, I call on all members of the community not only to adapt to the new normal, but to look beyond these times of uncertainty and into a better future. By continuing to respect diversity, inclusion, and the voices and ideas of the public, we can make 2021 a year of new creation, impact, and value. applications from an engineering standpoint.

Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plaza — The new landmark on Ookayama Campus

The construction of Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plazaouter (Taki Plaza), a 4,900-square-meter student exchange hub in the heart of Ookayama Campus, has finished approximately four years after the concept was born.

An eatery that creates connections

An eatery that creates connections

In the future, how will human and information networks expand? Sekai Kobayashi is the owner of Mirai Shokudo, an eatery with twelve counter seats in Jinbocho, a neighborhood near Tokyo Station. Professor Tsuyoshi Murata examines the spread of human relationships via network structures by conducting research on themes such as social network analysis and web mining.

For COVID-19 recovery and beyond Sharing Tokyo Tech research through the New Normal Research Map

For COVID-19 recovery and beyond — Sharing Tokyo Tech research through the New Normal Research Map

With the advent of COVID-19, humanity is seeing various shifts in society that are becoming the "new normal". In response, Tokyo Tech has created the New Normal Research Mapouter, introducing Tokyo Tech research that will contribute to COVID-19 recovery and beyond.

Artificial Intelligence Finds Surprising Patterns in Earth's Biological Mass Extinctions

Artificial Intelligence Finds Surprising Patterns in Earth's Biological Mass Extinctions

The idea that mass extinctions allow many new types of species to evolve is a central concept in evolution, but a new study using artificial intelligence to examine the fossil record finds this is rarely true, and there must be another explanation.

Turning the Heat Down: Catalyzing Ammonia Formation at Lower Temperatures with Ruthenium

Turning the Heat Down: Catalyzing Ammonia Formation at Lower Temperatures with Ruthenium

Scientists report that the metal ruthenium, supported with lanthanide oxyhydrides, can efficiently catalyze the synthesis of ammonia at a much lower temperature than the traditional approach.

Novel Crystalline Oxide May Solve the Problem of Overheating in Composite Materials

Novel Crystalline Oxide May Solve the Problem of Overheating in Composite Materials

Scientists synthesized a novel material that displays unique thermal expansion properties. The method used by the scientists enables the production of a unique crystalline oxide containing zirconium, sulfur, and phosphorus, that exhibits two distinct mechanisms of negative thermal expansion.

The Neurobiology of Thirst: The Neural Mechanisms that Control Hydration

The Neurobiology of Thirst: The Neural Mechanisms that Control Hydration

Scientists provide deeper insights into neural thirst control. Their study indicates that cholecystokinin-mediated water-intake suppression is controlled by two neuronal 'thirst-suppressing' sub-populations in the subfornical organ in the brain.
