Research Divisions

Fujitsu Social Mathematics

In the end of August 2017, Fujitsu Social Mathematics finished its three years contract and completed its mission with a number of fruitful achievements. The collaborations between Fujitsu Laboratories LTD. and IMI will continue as before.

The division of Fujitsu Social Mathematics aims to develop mathematical technologies for modeling social system based on human behavioral and psychological factors, and to optimize the various policies of the social system with the model. It promotes the establishment of novel design methodologies for social systems based on interdisciplinary research that combines social science research, such as economics and psychology and data utilization techniques such as mathematical analysis, optimization and control. It also addresses to implement newly established design methodologies for resolving real social issues.
