Tokyo Institute of Technology and DENSO IT LABORATORY have established an innovative AI technology platform for collaboration in future mobility development.
DENSO IT LAB is developing technology capable of changing the concept of next-generation mobility, concepts such as autonomous driving and advanced safety vehicles as well as other onboard systems and services. Tokyo Tech established the Data Science & Artificial Intelligence Research Group for Social Goodouter, headed by Haruo Yokota, Dean, School of Computing, to work on solutions for social issues by leveraging data science, AI, and interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty members and industry.
Recognizing the need for strong industry and university cooperation, Tokyo Tech and DENSO IT LAB have partnered to work on the acceleration of machine learning via super computers as well as other areas.
Tokyo Tech and DENSO IT LAB are further enhancing collaboration through a joint research agreement, led by School of Computing professor Koichi Shinoda, and have established the DENSO IT LAB Recognition and Learning Algorithm Collaborative Research Chairouter. The integration of Tokyo Tech’s advances in mathematics and computer science with DENSO IT LAB’s autonomous driving, motorization, and MaaS technologies has allowed for the creation of an AI technology platform to realize possibilities in future mobility.
In addition, as part of its continuing efforts to enhance industry-university collaboration and promote open innovation, DENSO IT LAB sponsor, DENSO Corporation, established the DENSO Mobility Research Collaborative Research Cluster at Tokyo Tech to facilitate research planning and development between the two organizations.
