Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Kazuya Takeda received B.E., M.E., and Dr. of Engineering degrees from Nagoya University, in 1983, 1985, and 1994. In 1986, he joined Advanced Telecommunication Research (ATR) Laboratories, where he was involved in two major projects: speech database construction and speech synthesis system development. In 1989, he moved to KDD R&D Laboratories and participated in a project for constructing voice-activated telephone extension system. He joined the Graduate School of Nagoya University in 1995. Since 2003, he has been a professor at the Graduate School of Information Science at Nagoya University.

Lab Introduction

Welcome to the Takeda Lab, located in the Grad. School of Information Science at Nagoya University, Japan.
Our laboratory focuses on applying digital signal processing technologies to a variety of problems that arise from the interaction of humans with the rest of the world.
We are interested in both understanding and modeling human behavior, as well as exploring the practical implications of our discoveries.
Our findings have had a significant impact on different areas of knowledge, including speech recognition, music processing, man-machine interfaces, driver identification and modeling, and the design of speakers and microphones.
Our research is concentrated in five major areas: driving behavior signal processing, speech and language, acoustics, music, and sensors.
We are, therefore, broadly organized into five independent groups, which keep an intense communication.
