Homework Assignment for the Next Class (PDF)
A keynote lecture by Dean Yoko Hamada will set a tone to
explore environment and information studies at SFC.
The lecture illustrates current research issues and on-going
activities around us. A generalintroduction to the course will
also be provided.
Then, let's enjoy non-verbal communication through "squiggle game".
|#02||2018/10/04 Learning pattern workshop (Taichi Isaku)|
Learning pattern workshop: basic ideas behind the learning
style at SFC will be explored and discussed.
|#03||2018/10/11 Sustainable Development Goals (Norichika Kanie)|
Lecture material (PDF)
Global development cannot be adequately achieved as it was
in the 20th century. While science tells us that Earth system
in danger due to "great acceleration" starting last century,
changing the course of action is difficult because interests
are embedded in the social and international system.
It is now important to consider social, economic and
environmental aspects of sustainability in an integrated
manner, and opportunities are provided by the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) .
In this class, we will explore what the SDGs tell us.
|#04||2018/10/18 【塾内限定公開】Microbial Bioinformatics (Haruo Suzuki)|
While microorganisms have important roles in various environments,
they can cause infectious diseases which are threats to human
health. To better understand the emergence of virulence and
antibiotic resistance in microbial communities, we need to gain
insight into the mechanisms of the evolution of microbial
genomes. Bioinformatics is useful for handling large and complex
biological data such as genome sequences. In this class, we will
focus on the main tools used in the management and analysis of

Lecture material (PDF) [Enrolled Students Only]

In these days, we see data intensive science and
applications are emerging. Such examples are big science
such as astronomy and meteorology, AI technology including
deep learning, and block chain technology forming the basis of
virtual currency. Since these technologies are based on large
scale data, basic technology for managing them is necessary.
This basic technology is referred to as data system.
There are a variety of data systems such as traditional
relational databases and file systems, special purpose
databases tailored to specific uses such as time series
databases and graph databases. We see many products in
the wild. Although data systems seem complicated, the element
technologies are only query processing and transaction
processing. Query processing is a process of interpreting
contents that the user has asked “Please give this data”
to the system and returns the processing result. An example
of a query language is SQL. Transaction processing is a process
performed when transferring money to a bank or saving data
into a computer.
It has the property of ACID. The objective in this lecture is
to introduce beautiful design principles that adhere to these
technologies and sophisticated techniques for students.
|#06||2018/11/01 【履修者限定公開】Multicultural Communication (Takao Tomono)|
Lecture Material(PDF) [Enrolled Students Only]
Contemporary society has continued to develop through the free
movement of people across the globe, while the internet has
enabled individuals to connect instantly with one another.
In such a society, communication and collaboration among
individuals with different linguistic and cultural backgrounds
have become increasingly important. In this class we will
focus on the significance of such interaction, especially
|#07||2018/11/08 The science of the world’s music (Patrick Savage )|
Leture material (PDF)
What is music, and why did it evolve? How can we understand the
unity and diversity found throughout the world's music?
Scientific attempts to answer these questions through
cross-cultural comparison stalled during the 20th century
and have only recently begun to make a resurgence with
the power of modern computational methods. In this class,
we will investigate the past, present, and future of all
the world's music (including folk, pop, and classical music)
using comparative and computational methods.
