Graduate School/Areas


Cutting-edge science and technology are expanding human intellectual, physical, and mental activities and promoting the power of knowledge creation. On the other hand, human beings have intellectual activities unique to them, such as comprehensive judgment to make responsible decisions, intuition to catch faint signals, and creative trial and error to create knowledge by posing new problems and formulating hypotheses. There is a need for research and practice on these intellectual activities and the deep communication and co-creation abilities that humans have with others. In our knowledge society, knowledge creation is the main activity of humans and a resource for organizational competitiveness. The co-creation activities between science and technology and humans are essential for the sustainable creation and development of value. We call the intelligence that creates new knowledge by integrating state-of-the-art science and technology with human intelligence and creativity ""co-creative intelligence."" By exploring this new kind of intelligence that people active in the knowledge society should possess, we aim at clarifying the essence of intelligence and creativity. Simultaneously we conduct research and develop cutting-edge science and technology and propose to the community the ideal form of intelligence and science and technology.

Education policy:

This research area brings together faculty members who research the nature of intelligence and knowledge creation and its social practice based on the fundamentals of language, cognition, knowledge, and philosophy. We will conduct comprehensive and interdisciplinary education and research from the theoretical level of intelligence and knowledge creation to the level of its application to society to explore the new intelligence necessary for activities in an advanced knowledge society. Students will learn the computational theory of cognition, decisionmaking theory, philosophy of mind and language, data science, and complex systems science at the theoretical level. Applied research covers, for example, the creation of intelligent systems, the design of institutions and educational programs for a knowledge co-creation society, service knowledge, creativity, and social innovation, and interpretable and symbiotic artificial intelligence. We will deepen students' ability to flexibly co-create knowledge from an interdisciplinary and diverse perspective through education and research. We aim to cultivate leaders who will pioneer the knowledge society by utilizing the most advanced technologies of the future.
