About the Center


The Center aims at promoting research of informatics through resource sharing and collaborative research in the research community. We collect various datasets and provide them to the researchers, and in parallel conduct research and development on dataset building and their utilization platform, then develop those results to collaborative research activities.

  1. Providing informatics research datasets for researchers (Operation of IDR & SRC)
  2. Development of informatics research datasets (Operation of NTCIR)
  3. Research and development of a platform for shared content type research
  4. Promotion of collaborative research based on the shared datasets applying the platform
