Major research activity
The Okadome Seminar Group using various sensors, we explores to design a new media that represents a physical or the state of a physical object in environments, and using the media, we create various contents, in particular, web contents, together with each person's favorite objects.
To attain the goal, on the basis of the technologies of sensor networks, physical computing, and machine learning, we attempt (1) to establish a method for interpreting sensor data and verbalizing or visualizing them, (2) to interpolate human actions or real-world events that cannot be directly inferred from sensor data by mining the information on the web, (3) to design "environment media" that represent the verbalized or visualized data, and (4) to create web contents using the environment media. We also investigate to develop a movie production system that enables us to produce a high quality (short) movie which only a few members can make a team to create.
