Outline of Department of Information Sciences

What is information? To define it exactly is more difficult than one can imagine. Thus, the goal of the Department of Information Sciences is to define "what is information" from a scientific perspective as information will become the essential reference for people and social organizations in decision-making. It is fundamental for the 21st century information-oriented society to conduct academic researches to collect, produce, distribute, process, store and retrieve, as well as present its reliable information. We will help you explore and learn in terms of Information Mathematics and Information Processing.
