Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems and Applications to Neurointelligence
I have been studying mathematical theory for modelling complex systems and its wide-ranging transdisciplinary applications in science and technology from the viewpoint of mathematical engineering and chaos engineering. In particular, I developed a theoretical platform composed of (1) advanced control theory of complex systems, (2) complex network theory, and (3) nonlinear data analysis and data-driven modelling. On the applications side, I am working to bridge neuroscientific and clinical studies with next-generation AI by mathematical modeling and analyses of brain dynamics to realize neurointelligence.

I received a B.E. degree in electrical engineering and Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from the University of Tokyo (UTokyo), Tokyo, Japan, in 1977 and 1982, respectively. I led the ERATO (Exploratory Research for Advanced Technology) Aihara Complexity Modelling project for JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency) from 2003 to 2008 and the FIRST Innovative Mathematical Modelling project by JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) through the FIRST (Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D Science and Technology) program from 2010 to 2014 for CSTP (Council for Science and Technology Policy).
