 As a result of the rapid development and popularization of information science and technology, including AI (artificial intelligence), construction of novel techniques in various research fields, dramatic improvement of performance and expansion of the object range have all progressed, and we are also continuing to see the possibilities of innovative project setting and frameworks, and the creation of new academic fields.
 In order to take advantage of all these opportunities for academic innovation and creation, and to guide progress in a way that will lead to the creation of future innovations, it is essential to utilize AI/information science and technology, and to predict, describe and pioneer the world that will be newly opened by transdisciplinary approaches involving AI/information science and technology, based on ideas that display extraordinary excellence in respective academic fields and embody flexible concepts by progressive thinking.
 In this Research Area, we are seeking challenging research concepts by young researchers which aim at substantially strengthening and developing all academic fields, including both science/engineering fields and the humanities/social sciences, by introducing leading-edge AI/information science and technology in those fields, innovation in academic fields and creation of new academic fields by fusion with AI/information science and technology, and the creation of new value.
 In promoting research, our aims are to develop research-related human resources capable of promoting advanced research that contributes to the future and to build a human network of researchers that will lead to future collaboration by providing platforms for exchanges and mutual inspiration of young researchers in different fields, placing priority on human resource development.
 This research area is managed in the course of AIP Network Lab, which constructs the AI, big data, IoT, and the AIP Project.
