New Next-Generation Information Access Technology

The digitization of information resources, increasing speed of data transmission and increasing capacity of storage devices have led to a massive amount of digital contents. We have to perform various kinds of studies in order to realize extraction of the information that we need. At the laboratory of Professor Haseyama, we are conducting studies that will fulfill the needs of today’s information society. By using multimedia processing techniques, we are developing next-generation information access technologies.
The future is realized in our laboratory!

The Laboratory of Media Dynamics (Haseyama Lab.) is accepting Master & Ph.D. students who have interests in multimedia processing. Students with interests in topics such as image, video, audio, music and several multimedia processings are most welcome! Please contact our laboratory directly. Let’s start studies together!
If you are interested in joining our lab as a graduate student or a post-doctoral researcher, please make contact with Prof. Miki Haseyama (
