Cyber Informatics(CI)

 Designing the Ubiquitous Network Society

HATTORI, Takashi
Professor, Program Chairperson

The computer, the Internet, and other digital technologies developed in the 20th century now provide the social infrastructure that supports people and society in the 21st century. The CI Program conducts a broad range of research aimed at creating a future society that is affluent, safe and fun. This includes research on the technology and methods required for network construction and the digital processing of information, including representation, archiving, transmission, encryption, and decryption; research on completely redesigning physical space based on the information technology that is ubiquitous computing; research on applications and interfaces that connect people to technology; and research on the design of a new society, which we will have to consider once this connection is made.

There is a Professional Course related to the CI Program: the Cyber Security Course, which we encourage our students to acquire a certificate from.
