RIKEN Interdisciplinary Theoretical and Mathematical Sciences Program
Introducing iTHEMS researchers who are active in various research fields.
Many people think of experiments when they hear the words “biological research.” However, Jeffrey Fawcett researches the evolution of species by analyzing genetic information using computers. Below, we will introduce some of his theoretical research.
The rapid development of AI is driven by technology called deep learning. However, no one knows yet why AI with high performance can be achieved through deep learning. We asked Dr. Masato Taki, who is working on deep learning in iTHEMS, about applied technology that extends from deep learning.
Dr. Ade Irma Suriajaya (Chacha) is originally from Indonesia and shifted her field from aeronautical engineering to mathematics. We will introduce the beauty of mathematics, which Chacha has been eager to learn, going so far as to move from Indonesia to China and then onto Japan.
