About us

With rapid development of social structure, generated by wide spread of Internet of Things(IoT) and advanced application of IT in social infrastructure, a vast amount of data such as sensor and device information needs to be properly managed at data centers.
Tackling the global warming issues such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and power consumption has been a social mega-trend, and the power consumption reduction at data centers is no exception.
In our laboratory, we aim to make a positive contribution to the society by making the data center meet the strict requirements with the utilization of AI and virtualization technology; precisely constructing an optimal air conditioning system & task assignment system.

We are also collaborating with several enterprises in order to meet the needs of society and also follow the current trends.
