Title: Kansei Information Processing and its applications
Kansei Information Processing is a part of Human-Computer Interaction research.
“Kansei” is a Japanese word that covers the meanings of sensitivity or sensibility.
Kansei studies is an interdisciplinary research field. It intends to understand what Kansei is,
how Kansei works, and how to apply an understanding of Kansei in the design of new products
and services. I would like to introduce Kansei studies and its applications in my talk.
