This laboratory has been launched since Sept. 2016 in Generic Technology Research Group in RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP).

When making predictions based on intelligent information processing such as machine learning, we usually have prior information about structures among variables in data. In our team, we study theories and algorithms for learning with such structural information. Moreover, we conduct applied researches by applying developed algorithms to a variety of scientific and engineering data.
