Research Division

Introduction

Our mission is to create a platform that offers solutions to scientific and social challenges which enterprises, local governments, other public sectors and on-campus research groups face in anticipation of our future data-driven society. University academics and researchers specialized in mathematical and statistical sciences, data science, AI and related technologies work together. Research Division is divided into three sections; AI and Data Science Section, Social Implementation Section and Value Innovation and Design Section. Each Section aims to cover basics and applied areas of mathematical and data sciences. Research Division consists of 51 academics across the various disciplines at Kobe University with the background of data science.
