Bio-inspired Information and Communication Technology
The ever-increasing scale and complexity of information and communication systems make conventional design and control methodologies infeasible any more. To establish sustainable information and communication systems which can continuously play a role of social infrastructure supporting our secure, safe, and comfortable life, we need new information and communication technologies (ICT) based on algorithms, mechanisms, and architecture completely different from conventional ones. As a basic principle enabling sustainable ICT, we focus on mechanisms of living organisms. Biological systems have scalability of the size and number, the adaptability and robustness against unpredictable changes and failures. As being found in from cells to society, biological systems have established structure and mechanisms which are energy-efficient and highly adaptive to live and grow in dynamically changing environment. By adopting biological algorithms and mechanisms, we solve various issues that future information and communication systems would face.

The four-digit phone numbers are extensions at Osaka University. To call directly from outside Osaka University, dial a phone number marked S after (area code 06) 6850 or a phone number marked T after (area code 06) 6879. For a phone number marked S (extension), however, first dial the main phone number (06) 6879-5111.
