About Us

The Kobayashi Laboratory at Ochanomizu University researches a broad range of topics, including natural language processing and artificial intelligence. We enjoy our research activities with our students, aiming at the computational realization of “linguistic intelligence”, in which humans think and perform intellectual activities using natural language.
