Department of Informatics

"Information" is the origin of human intellect and sensibilities, and plays a central role in natural and artificial systems. Informatics is the study of "information", from the viewpoint of the foundations of sciences. Through systematic education and research in this new fundamental science and by supporting not only science and engineering but humanities from the viewpoint of informatics, the Department of Informatics aims to nurture researchers and engineers who have advanced expertise and are capable of contributing to the information society.
 
To achieve this goal, the department comprises three divisions : the Division of Mathematical Informatics, the Division of Intelligence Science, and the Division of Computational Science. The Division of Mathematical Informatics studies, in the field of Informatics, especially the construction and analysis of mathematical models related to information. The Division of Intelligence Science studies cognitive science, as well as fundamental theories in information theory and their applications to intelligent systems, with an aim to explore the principles of human intellectual information processing. The Division of Computational Science (operating in cooperation with the Research Institute for Information Technology at Kyushu University) studies foundations of computational science that span the field of simulation.
 
Informatics is an emerging synthetic science regarding information, that encompasses traditional information science as well as humanities with foundations in information science. With these divisions, the department aims to explore new methodologies and perspectives in informatics, and establish the basis for the creative development of informatics.
