The research group led by Professor Xiaoyang Mao at department of computer science and engineering, faculty of engineering, University of Yamanashi, developed new a berry counting AI technique for berry thinning, which can be executed on smart phone in real-time. [More]
Research paper, entitled “Image Recoloring for Red-Green Dichromats with Compensation Range based Naturalness Preservation and Refined Dichromacy Gamut”, was accepted by Computer Graphics International 2022 (CGI2022) (accepted paper will be published on the international journal The Visual Computer (IF: 2.601(2022)))
Shota Chi, a fourth-year bachelor’s student at the Professor Mao Laboratory at the University of Yamanashi, received the Student Encouragement Award at the 84rd IPSJ National Convention for his research “Automatic Prediction for Meat Cooking using Deep Learning.”
Following the study on grape, we will conduct empirical research on Lemon Cultivation using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented-Reality (AR) techniques.
We will continuously engage in study on compensation for people with color vision deficiency based on the latest techniques of Deep Learning (DL) and Augmented-Reality (AR).
Paper “Generative Data Augmentation for Automatic Meter Reading Using CNNs” has been accepted by IEEE Access journal (IF: 3.367(2020)).

It is difficult for beginners to thin a grapes as well as skilled farmers because of the experience and training are required. The development of “smart glasses” that transform beginners into skilled farmers is progressing.
