A Representation of Rhythmic Motions

Skill is an action requiring intelligence. It has been debated whether motions require representations because they are thought to describe procedures. The dichotomy between thought and execution has puzzled us because we are unsure how thinking process intervenes with execution and how execution is understood by thinking process. We have in other words no logical theory of...

Tensor-Based Shot Boundary Detection in Video Streams

This paper presents a method for content change detection in multidimensional video signals. Video frames are represented as tensors of order consistent with signal dimensions. The method operates on unprocessed signals and no special feature extraction is assumed. The dynamic tensor analysis method is used to build a tensor model from the stream. Each new datum in the stream is...

Metamathematics for Systems Design

This position paper describes the context, the goal, the strategy and the tactics of the ERATO MMSD project (2016–2022). The project aims at enhanced quality assurance measures for industry products like cars. In doing so, we follow a recent trend and exploit formal methods, a body of mathematical techniques originally developed for computer systems. However, there are...

The End of Moore’s Law: Opportunities for Natural Computing?

The impending end of Moore’s Law has started a rethinking of the way computers are built and computation is done. This paper discusses two directions that are currently attracting much attention as future computation paradigms: the merging of logic and memory, and brain-inspired computing. Natural computing has been known for its innovative methods to conduct computation, and as...

Visualizing Collective Attention Using Association Networks

The socialization of the Web changes the ways we behave both online and offline, leading to a novel emergent phenomenon called “collective attention” in which people’s attention is suddenly concentrated on a particular real-life event. Visualizing collective attention is fundamental to understand human behavior in the digital age. Here we propose “association networks” to...

Molecular Robotics: A New Paradigm for Artifacts

The rapid progress of molecular nanotechnology has opened the door to molecular robotics, which uses molecules as robot components. In order to promote this new paradigm, the Molecular Robotics Research Group was established in the Systems and Information Division of the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) in 2010. The group consists of researchers from various...
