AI and IoT meet Design

We are realizing design that has never been done before with AI and IoT. There is still much that AI can do in design to shape the human world. IOT is a technology that connects the human world and the computer world. At the Design Laboratory, we aim to expand the possibilities of the human world with AI and IoT.

For human activity recognition, we realize human, object, and motion estimation without relying on videos. Constructing privacy-conscious systems realize sustainable sensing that coexists with human society.

For textile, we provide designs that humans could not have imagined. With the help of computers, we can realize ideas that humans have never achieved. Our method creates textile patterns that faithfully reproduce a given pattern while preserving the structure of the fabric. Conductive fibers can be woven into the fabric in an optimized pattern to achieve electrical functionality.
