Fujitsu Laboratories in association with Japan's National Institute of Informatics (NII) has announced, "starting this fiscal year, Fujitsu Laboratories will participate in NII's artificial brain project, known as 'Can a Robot Pass the University of Tokyo (Todai) Entrance Exam?', otherwise known as 'Todai Robot.' Based on its formula manipulation and computer algebra technology, Fujitsu Laboratories will participate as the math team for the project."
The article continues, "For many years, Fujitsu Laboratories has been researching formula manipulation and computer algebra, which are necessary to exactly solve mathematical problems related to mathematical analysis and optimization technologies. Its participation in the Todai Robot math team starting this year will leverage the technological foundation it has already built."
It goes on, "Fujitsu Laboratories sees its involvement in the Todai Robot math team as a way to develop, along with the NII, the technologies that will be needed for human-centric IT. The hope is that the technologies developed as part of this project will enable anyone to easily use sophisticated mathematical analysis tools, which will lead to solutions for a wide range of real-world problems, and even the automation of mathematical analysis and optimization."
