NOTE: Japanese Page is here.
Professor Horiguchi joined with School of Information Science, JAIST
in 1992. He received his Ph.D. in 1981 from Tohoku University.
He was a faculty of Department of Information Science
at Tohoku University from 1981 to 1992.
He was a visiting scientist of IBM Thomas J. Watson Research
Center from 1986 to 1987 and a visiting professor of The
Center for Advanced Studies at the University of Southwestern
Louisiana in 1994.
He has been involved in organizing many international
workshops, symposia and conference sponsored by IEEE, IEICE and IPS.
Our research interests are mainly concerned with
massively parallel computer architectures and parallel algorithms,
and multi-media systems.
1. Massively Parallel Computer Architectures
As a result of recent developments in VLSI technology,
it is now possible to construct multiprocessor systems with
thousands of processing elements.
Various types of multiprocessor system are under intensive investigation
in both industrial and university environments.
This has created the need for research on parallel architectures and
algorithms that can exploit the potentially high degree of parallelism
in multiprocessor systems.
We are studying hierarchical network architectures,
hypercube multiprocessor systems, and multi-port memory
e also are conducting research into principles of
WSI/VLSI architectures by investigating
reconfigurable architectures, hierarchical redundant architectures and
for massively parallel systems.
2. Parallel Algorithms
Massively parallel machines with a large (greater than $10^6$)
number of processing elements are
promising means of satisfying the continuously increasing need for computing
power in advance science and technology.
We are interested hardware algorithms in systolic arrays
and algorithms for massively parallel machines.
We are studying parallel simulations, parallel computation models,
parallel FFT algorithms, and
memory-intensive computations for massively parallel systems.
Our research focuses on high performance algorithms for
real massively parallel computers.
3. Multi-Media Systems
Virtual Reality is a high-end user interface
in which computer graphics is used to create a realistic looking
world that responds to user inputs.
We are studying recognition systems of manual alphabet and
3D-sculpture system using a hand gesture interface device.
Other current research in multi-media is to create an
automatic piano performance system that takes into account the
