Sensing and Intellectualization Unit

Research Summary

In the "Sensing and Intellectualizing Technology (S&I)" unit, innovative methods of measurement, analysis, and expression will be integrated to realize a new system for understanding nature.

Advanced instruments will expand the measurement area with unprecedented multi-spatial and multi-temporal resolution. Those acquired data will be analyzed using statistical mathematics and data science, which are complementary to the conventional physical perspective, to extract the maximum amount of information. Finally, various phenomena and data are converted into visual, auditory, tactile, and other information to elucidate interactively the complex structures and correlations hidden within the data.

By advancing these series of research methods, we will tackle the unresolved issues in fusion science.
