my email address

I am a scientist working on cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and robotics. My major research interest is "the ability to imagine others' mind", which is the underlying core mechanism for interpersonal communication specific to human species. Where did it come from? How does it develop over time? Investigating these issues, I would like to make robots and artificial systems that have "the ability to imagine others' mind", which would enable them to understand people's feelings and pain, to make a promise with people, and then to live together with people in the community.

Keywords: human-robot communication, development of communication and its disorders, empathy and imitation, acquisition of language and culture, communication-care, universal design.
