I’m Hiroaki Yamane (山根 宏彰).

I have been involved in research and development on AI that is related to human emotion and mind. I’m also interested in AI that contributes to humans and health including well-being. First, in the field of natural language processing (NLP), I have conducted research on emotion-based research (advertising slogans, humor, and morality, etc.). In addition, I have experience in the field of brain decoding, which is the prediction of what a person was looking at based on brain activity, and I conducted researches using crowd sourcing services. In the field of medical imaging, I am involved in the construction of a medical diagnosis support system from CT to support medical doctors.

I received a Bachelor of Engineering, a Master of Engineering, and a Ph.D. degree from Keio University under supervision of Prof. Masafumi Hagiwara.

I was a member of the PRINTEPS (CREST) project, which was launched by Prof. Takahira Yamaguchi. I’ve been supported by the research fellowship for young scientists (DC2 starting from April 2013 to September 2014, PD starting from October 2014 to March 2015) by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

I worked as a project researcher at Harada lab. at the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo. I moved to Kamitani Lab at Kyoto University. Currently, I’m working as a postdoctoral researcher at RIKEN AIP and studying “Machine Intelligence for Medical Engineering”.

I’m reviewing Information Processing & Management Journal, IJCAI 2020, and I have a mebership for IEEE Signal Processing Society, MICCAI Scociety, Japan Society for Fuzzy Theory and Intelligent Informatics, and Japanese Association for Medical Artificial Intelligence with a certified qualification.
