About

University of Tsukuba, Strategic Research Platform towards Digital Nature Powered by Pixie Dust Technologies, Inc. led by Associate Professor Yoichi Ochiai envisions Digital Nature, which is the natural environment of post ubiquitous computing era consists of seamless combination of computational resources and non-computational resources. The ecosystem of Digital Nature will provide more various alternatives of future between Human and Machines, Material World and Virtual World than industrial era. We envision the various application of computational researches between Humanity and Machines,  Materiality and Virtuality. We realize these alternatives in order to solve problems around industry, academic, and art towards forming new mixed culture of human, computation, and nature.

落合陽一准教授が主宰するデジタルネイチャー推進戦略研究基盤は,ユビキタスコンピューティングの先に「計算機自然(Digital Nature)」の到来を見据えています.計算機自然では,人と機械,物質世界(Material World)と実質世界(Virtual World)の間に,今までの工業化社会よりも多様な未来の形が起こりうると考えられます.本研究室は,そういった物質性と実質性の間で,計算機応用のもたらす様々な選択肢を想定し,それらを計算機科学的に実装することで,産業・学問・芸術に至る様々な問題解決に挑戦し,人・計算機・自然における新たな文化的価値の創成を目指します.
