Message from the Dean, Graduate School of System Informatics

 The Graduate School of System Informatics was founded in April 2010 as the first graduate school on information-related fields at Kobe University. Our graduate school consists of three departments: Department of System Science, Department of Information Science, and Department of Computational Science. We are responsible for promoting education and research on methodologies for analyzing, designing, and operating large-scale complex systems, on theories and techniques for advanced information processing, and on the fundamentals and applications of large-scale simulations in a high-performance computing environment.

 The Graduate School of System Informatics has just marked its 10th anniversary this year. Although it has been only ten years, the situation surrounding our graduate school has changed dramatically during this period. Research topics closely related to our graduate school, such as artificial intelligence, data science, the Internet of Things, big data, robots, etc., have been gaining a lot of attention, as well as the upcoming Society 5.0, a rich human-centered society of the future. The supercomputer “K”, whose installation in Kobe city had been one of the triggers for starting our graduate school, has already retired and the development of “Fugaku” with further improvement of its performance is on its way.

 Development of human resources who can contribute to the creation of new values by deepening and integrating these cutting-edge technologies is our important mission as an organization that plays a central role in education and research toward the realization of Society 5.0. I sincerely hope that many students will gather at the Graduate School of System Informatics and enjoy studying how to create an attractive future society.
