Our laboratory has been conducting researches mainly in Robot Audition and Environment Understanding since we started as Nakadai Laboratory in 2006.


In July 2017, we launched the next-generation AI robotics  research alliance laboratory with Honda Research Institute Japan Co., Ltd. (HRI-JP), and to create a novel research field that integrates AI/machine learning, robotics, and signal/speech processing, in addition to our core research in robot audition and auditory scene analysis. In April 2021, we change the name of laboratory to the “next-generation Intelligent Communication and Social Interaction (ICSI) Research Alliance Laboratory” and start our research with a new look.


In addition to the core research topics such as robot audition, computational auditory scene analysis, and their integration with AI and robotics, we aim to build next-generation technologies applicable to intelligent communication and social interaction.


For the benefits of joint research laboratory, we have a system that enables students who have been assigned to this laboratory to proceed in their researches not only in this university but also in HRI-JP. We operate our laboratory in cooperation with Imura Laboratory and Hayakawa Laboratory.
