We have challenges with the aim to solve the various problems of our society by enhancing our practical skills of software engineering and project management. We are also working on systems modeling, business analysis, agile, service science, lean startup, and design thinking.
My research interests is in the Network serivce on the Internet and security mechanism necessary for such services. By combining Services on the Internet with Smartphone, IoT Sensors and Smart card, we can deliver useful services and devices for our lives and business.
Infinite chances of active involvement for persons who understand development issues and ICT.
One of my research interests is human interface technology, with my students we study in particular the application of “floating images” to visualization of medical information, amusement, and other areas. Also with international students we are studying the application of sensor networks to agriculture, medical care and disaster prevention in developing countries.
Lived in Egypt, UK and Saudi Arabia and visited about 100 countries. I’d contribute to solving social problems in emerging economies through my experiences as diplomat, consultant and entrepreneur.
My profession is town planning and its environmental analysis. Comfortable city needs analyses of buildings, transportations, lifelines, co2 emissions, and disaster risks base on various data. Recently it is becoming important to evaluate a project economically and to make consensus between citizens utilizing ICTs’ recent evolution in addition to my continuous research on ‘Smart City’.
I had been with Japanese semiconductor company, and involved in development of SoC and embedded software for MCU and DSP. My current interest includes IoT and Ubiquitous Computing is based on various elementary technologies such as communication, security and calculation resources. Also acquiring the ability of problem definition, analysis and solving is another important education target in my lab. Let’s enjoy deep and intensive discussion.
Based on my experience of system development, usage, operation and management from mainframe to PC, both in private and public sectors, and staying 10 years in the developing countries, I would like to collaborate with students for ICT system development, operation and management, actual implementation and management of projects which can solve issues/problems in a practical manner.
My research field is Software Engineering and Business Science.
Requirement Engineering / Software Engineering / Software Quality assurance / Software Process Improvement / Development of embedded software
My familiarity with experiential cultural diversity will sure be a two-way avenue between you and me during your two years journey through the wonders of KIC and KOBE.
WELCOME TO KIC, WELCOME TO KOBE, a UNESCO DESIGN CITY.
Any student with a passion is most welcome, whether it be for technology, creativity, curiosity, or a challenge. Come on in, and turn your ideas and into a reality. ICT is fun, and it is yours.
I have always been interested in implementing technology in solving problems of any nature. Technology has been and in my opinion will continue to be a great tool in the hands of researchers.
I have worked so far on integrating technologies such as Virtualizations, Virtual Network Computing, and other web technologies in introducing virtual laboratories that can be used in ICT courses. I also worked on linking the virtual laboratories with the Learning Management Systems so that practical activities can be integrated into online courses. I have also worked on the use and implementation of Cloud Computing and Mobile technology in education.
Everyone who is seeking to implement web and mobile technologies in solving any kind of problems is welcome to my laboratory.
My interest in the area of ICT4D started during my graduate study, when I learned the power of ICT in a very personal manner during the calamity of Kobe earthquake in Japan in January 1995. During the disaster, different ICT tools helped coordinate, mitigate, and provided critical support information to the affected people, including my family. This personal experience led me to realize the power of ICT and gave me conviction to concentrate my study, and eventually led to my professional career.
Since that time, I have been supporting, both directly and indirectly, over 100 countries’ clients through various different developmental organizations which include UNDP, WHO/PAHO,and JICA. The experiences of witnessing ICT’s tangible impacts in the client countries provided me with substantive understanding of challenges which face the client countries but at the same time, emerging opportunities of using ICTs to leap-froggoing develomental steps. It is a true pleasure to be able to share these knowledge and experiences with the prospective ICTD practioners at KIC.
My Interest in ICT4D stems from my experience working as an ICT teacher at secondary schools in Ethiopia more than 10 years ago. Then, after graduating from ICT4D master course at the University of Manchester, I joined JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and worked for many kinds of ICT4D projects. My lecture is based on such experience and aims to provide a holistic viewpoint to plan and implement ICT4D projects.
