SHALAB (Shuji Hashimoto Laboratory), established in 1991 as a part of Department of Applied Physics of Waseda University, School of Science and Engineering, conducts research, development and experimentation in many key technologies and systems for Image Processing, Music and Multimedia, Meta-Algorithm including Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithm, and Robotics.
Our final aim is to produce "artifacts" that is a kind of artificial creature, which enables communication between human and machine in a natural and intuitive manner. Throughout these works, we aim to realize a harmonized human-machine environment.

Our laboratory is a part of Humanoid Robotics Institute (HRI) and is responsible for research on the vision system and the Kansei information system for humanoid robots. The research topics include various fields such as environment recognition, human recognition and Kansei interface. Also, we are doing research in collaboration with WABOT-HOUSE Laboratory, Waseda University, and Waseda University Global COE Program, "Global Robot Academia".
