Koro Yamazaki (graduated from 1956, chairman of the current Yokogawa Research Institute)

Koro Yamazaki

 It was my teacher Isobe's lecture that made me aspire to the way of measurement. It was more than forty years ago.But I still believe that the choice was right.In the 40 years, measurement technology has changed a lot.The emphasis is shifting to correctly recognizing the state of the object from the time when it was said that it was good to detect the target, and to be able to write accurately quantitative.This is because correct recognition leads to appropriate actions that follow.

 I wanted to create a measuring instrument with my own ideas and got a job in Yokogawa.At that time, the Japan industry was an age of high growth.I worked so crazy for about ten years, and it was interesting and I was able to make a decent result.The strain of high growth caused pollution and environmental destruction, and the oil crisis.I also wandered back to the University of Tokyo when I came to be able to see the technology for what it was for.Then, I took over the course of Prof. Isobe, who was motivated to proceed with the measurement, and I was going back to the starting point to engage in research and education.It was 1975.At the university, I was able to improve my results on intelligent sensors and signal processing thanks to my colleagues and students.But what made me happy was that I was able to learn the road I had found by myself, and to meet students who had a wide range of wonderful activities after graduation.The progress and penetration of measurement technology has become a fundamental technology for society as a whole.On the other hand, it is true that the Eidentetay of the measurement became difficult to see.In 1993, he retired from the University of Tokyo, and was again called to Yokogawa to see the technology.While I was in college, the high-growth ended, but the internationalization progressed, and the Eddy Flowmeter which I had developed before became an international commodity, and it was a deep emotion infinite seeing that it was made in the factory in the United States and Germany.

 The twentieth century was a century of physics.The 21st century will be the age of life and the genetic information will be deciphered and the mechanism of life will be revealed.Therefore, the new measurement technology that recognizes the target correctly is not only requested in a different form than before, and it becomes a guideline which guides the next action, and knowledge is formed.And the acquired knowledge will enrich the measurement technology.I think that the measurement technology is expected to be a big innovation for the fruitful development now.

Ikeda, Akira

 Marry and meet her friends.I do not know whether the profession of researcher draws interest, the sound of the Research institute, or the phrase of brain study to give a dubious imagination, or to say in an amiable, "What are you studying?I often get asked.

 Because it is usually a seat of sake, I do not want the detailed explanation.If you are lucky enough to explain that you are doing this, you will be super dip.But it's hard to find a word to get a word.

 I think that this was experienced from the time when it was in the Department of counting Engineering.At that time, in the first meeting, especially those who are unrelated to the engineering department, what are you doing in the Department of Caseu Engineering?There was a question of being asked.Signal processing, biometric measurement, parallel computer, robotics, control, statistics, chaos…It's hard to say a word just by lining up keywords.

 This is a natural result because it is a characteristic of the Department of Computational engineering that people with various interests are not particularly concerned about each other and can research their interests as individuals.It is a good expression of the subject that cannot be expressed in a word.In the Department of Computational Engineering, I learned that there are various interesting researches in the world, and was able to renew my problem consciousness by explaining how interesting my research was to others.I think this was beneficial for the present study.

 Currently, I am studying the biological signal processing and speech processing for the brain.Many parts of the information processing system, which has different characteristics from the brain, are still unknown.I am interested in the process of brain signals to clarify it, or to learn the information processing that the brain does, and to build an intelligent system with the ability to learn.

 Some researchers have various backgrounds, such as biology, physics, chemistry, psychology, medicine, and engineering.I became interested in interacting with researchers in other fields and thinking deeply about my research.It is the same as when I was enrolled in the Department of counting Engineering.

 Standing on the stairs at the front entrance of Bldg. 6, looking straight ahead, a large ginkgo tree shines in the blue sky.In April, a third grader who joins the department of Computational Engineering will start a new life from the commemorative photography of this staircase.In March, I will take a commemorative picture of graduation and completion at the same place, and go to a new activity place.

 Just two years ago, I finished my sixth anniversary and moved to my current workplace from the Department of Computational Engineering, which spent seven years.In the Department of Physics and Information Engineering, Keio University aims to recognize and apply natural phenomena from the viewpoint of "information", such as material phenomena, life-biological phenomena, and so on, under the catchphrase "from Micro to Macro".Therefore, the research field of the staff is wide, physical properties, living body, measurement, and mathematics.

 When I look back on my undergraduate days in the Department of Counting engineering, I have also been reminded that I have received lectures in a wide range of fields, including quantum mechanics.I think that a variety of intellectual showers were bathed from various angles by the lecture and the experiment apart from how much the individual lecture had acquired concretely.From the environment, what I felt with my skin before I knew it, it seems to be steeped in some years.The curiosity to the unknown field might originate in such an environment.

 The undercurrent of curiosity to a wide field, for example, might be a desire for some universality.It might be said, "philosophy".I think that "sensibility" and "sense" to feel such universality also sprout in such an environment.

 When you look at a book that is called a masterpiece, you find that the author is a graduate of the count, and may be thrilled.It is the one to be able to study in the same place, and to receive the lecture, and to become the encouragement which is not replaced by anything easily.When I was a student, I didn't know how valuable the lecture was, and now I'm really regretful that I didn't have a lecture at all.

 I think that it was "it was not alone" when thinking what was the characteristic of the Department of counting Engineering.The experiment was a pair of people, and at the time of the exercise, we were making robots against a team of six or seven people.My thesis also reminds me of two subjects, sometimes helping, sometimes pulling their legs, and advancing in legged.

 At the time of four years, everyone participated in the May festival.Although the knowledge and ability of each were only known, he had a good-looking fellow graduate student to make a circuit, and the person who liked the festival involved a wise companion and a good professor of troublesome seeing, and it was an exhibition which seemed to be intelligent when ending.I remember that I felt great confidence and joy in the result of exceeding each person's ability.Some of the companions were fascinated by the speech recognition and optics that worked on this May festival, and some of them decided to follow the course.

 In this way, while we were helping each other, every day I relied on others was a department of Computational Engineering.I have learned many things here, such as expertise and research skills, the thing that remains in the mind most in it is that it is understood through the experiment and the May Festival, and "it is possible to achieve a big achievement feeling by supporting it with the companion even a little."

 After graduating for a while, I found the news to be happy.The junior who decided to go on to the counting to see the exhibition of the May festival that we did was to do the exhibition at the May Festival with the companion.I was glad to have felt something for our poor exhibit, and I was glad that it followed us.

 Not alone.I think this is a great feature of the Department of Computational Engineering.The study of "counting" that the subject is large and is not able to compete by one person easily is taught while being severely guided by the teacher and the senior, and it researches while communicating something to the junior while helping with the companion.This is a characteristic of the Department of Computational Engineering, which I think.
