Prof. Tadahiro Taniguchi

Visiting Chief Engineer at Technology Division
Professor at the Department of Information Science and Engineering,
Ritsumeikan University

After working as a research fellow at the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, he started working as an assistant professor of the Department of Information Science and Engineering at Ritsumeikan University and then became an associate professor. In April 2017, He became a professor there.
He has been promoting symbol emergence, which plays a central role in linguistic and symbolic communication for human beings. He has been working on communication tool designs based on constructive understanding and its related systems combining with AI and robotics. He also created “Bibliobattle”, a game-style activity to introduce books to each other. His publications include Symbol Emergence in Robotics (Kodansha Ltd.), Learning AI introduction with images (Kodansha Ltd.), and Bibliobattle (Bunshun Shinsho).
