Todai Robot Project


Overview of the Project

This project, with the NII at its core, has been launched with the purpose of opening up a new horizon by reintegrating the subfields of Artificial Intelligence that have come about since the 1980’s, and encouraging young people to have dreams. Research activities have been conducted with two specific benchmarks, to achieve high marks on the National Center Test for University Admissions by 2016, and to pass the entrance examination for the University of Tokyo by 2021. The accuracy of fundamental AI technologies accumulated up until now are intended to improve the future value creation of information technology, and deeper and more comprehensive understandings of human thoughts will be shared among domestic and foreign researchers. In this project, the research activities will not only be undertaken in order to amass interdisciplinary knowledge and advance technology, but also improve international collaboration.
