Outline

 Remarkable progress in informatics and related technology development has continuously created new value in the scientific, industrial, social and cultural realms, and its importance continues to grow as the core technology for the creation of the society of the future. Informatics and IT already play an essential role in the development of every scientific field, in maintaining and developing of industry and the economy, in enhancing social infrastructure combining physical and information spaces, and in raising the quality of healthy and cultural lifestyles. Consequently, it is essential to pursue creative research and development in informatics, creating new value while solving the current and future problems facing humankind, so that we can enjoy a future of sustainable development.
 In this research area, we are supporting young informatics researchers with a pioneering spirit, pursuing research and development that will lead to the creation of new value. Specifically, we seek challenging research plans based on new ideas in a broad range of specialist fields concerned with informatics, including artificial intelligence, big data, IoT, and cyber-security. We believe it is important to undertake a wide variety of research and development based on original concepts that will change science, industry, society and culture in future.
 In undertaking this research activity, we will aggregate research and development that results in future development and value creation, providing a place for young researchers to inspire each other. We will foster research personnel who will implement advanced research that contributes to future society and promote among researchers the development of human networks that will bond them together for future collaborations. This will produce researchers with a more commanding presence, raising the hope for a brighter future society.
 This research area will operate as part of the Advanced Integrated Intelligence Platform project (AIP project) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
