• Big Data Application Symposium


The JST CREST Program on “Advanced Application Technologies to Boost Big Data Utilization for Multiple-Field Scientific Discovery and Social Problem Solving” started in 2013 and the final call for proposals was completed in the last fiscal year. Nine research projects in the application fields corresponding to the Research Supervisor’s Policy are awarded. This research area consists of various research fields such as drug discovery, disaster response and prevention, personalized medicine, epidemic prevention and control, e-agriculture, text-based knowledge discovery, development biology, and statistical cosmology. We aim to establish comprehensive and integrated technologies for analyzing big data according to the characteristics of the application fields. The purpose of this symposium is to share the current achievements of the projects. It also aims to promote the exchange of scientific and technological ideas between local and international scientists in order to promote further international collaborations.
 We are looking forward to welcoming you at the symposium.
