  • ・Solutions that allow personal characteristics to be identified from digital data such as photos or voice
    • - Technology to convert information of appearance such as expressions, voice tones, gestures, and glances into parameters

When you look back at the history of media, you can see that media started with typographic printing and changed to television and radio that appeal to the general public, and now, personalized media such as advertising and SNS based on analysis of actions on the Web are used. But, while personalization is making quick progress in the virtual world, personalization is not making progress in the real world in spite of emerging new types of products such as 3D printers and suits made from 3D body scanners.

In this situation, we are actively working on personalization through identification of personal characteristics mainly focused on bodily characteristics. To put it concretely, we are now using expressions, feelings readable from expressions, voice tones, and other similar factors, but we think that the factors we are using now are not enough. People have many more sorts of physical factors such as dress, hair style, make-up, direction of gaze, finger motion, way of walking, and dominant hand, and we think that we can identify personal characteristics by analyzing such various sorts of factors. Thus, we are looking for solutions to capture the factors using sensors to convert them to digital data and solutions to make use of the digital data.

We are aiming at personalizing all services and enabling individuals to receive personally optimized services.
