 In future, our society will recognize greater scientific, social, and economic value in abstract mathematical concepts, logical structures, and the indefinite perception and experience of human beings as ‘information’ in a broad sense. Towards the realization of this future, it becomes essential to develop new approaches of mathematical and information sciences so that mathematical concepts and structures from various scientific and industrial problems can be extracted and converted to useful information. It is also essential to develop mathematical methodologies to enhance the utilization of this information by combining deductive process-driven mathematical models with inductive data-driven models.

 The purpose of this research area is to establish fundamentals of mathematical and information sciences for the future society by elucidating mathematical structures and concepts hidden in various real/virtual world objects, making them valuable to the society and also expanding our cognitive capabilities. We will also develop methodologies and applications for utilizing this new information. We will accomplish this purpose by identifying novel mathematical concepts and structures, their underlying theories, and their informatization through collaborations with outstanding researchers from mathematics, mathematical science, and/or information sciences within this research area.

 Note that this research area will be operated as part of the Advanced Integrated Intelligence Platform project (AIP project) by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
