The vision of the NMAIL group is to create a meta-human being with augmented intellectual or physical abilities. Toward this vision, we have primarily been investigating various essential technologies including autonomous machines, wearable computing, brain-computer interfaces, augment reality-based interfaces, and so forth. By integrating individual technologies, we attempt to augment intellectual and physical capabilities of human. Symbiotic integration between human and technologies is the key.  Let us describe engineering approaches to realize such symbiosis as augmented intelligence.

We deepen our insights through the integration of various disciplines and find any clues for new technologies through decisive attempts from the perspective of both software and hardware engineering. We acknowledge that promising technologies should be used not only to help humans but also to enhance human capabilities, rather than overtaking or replacing humans.
