Introduction

For more than a decade, I have been working on numerous real-world business problems using advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies while publishing research papers in premier academic conferences.

My major research interests include:

  • anomaly and change detection
  • questionnaire analysis
  • trajectory mining, and
  • service science.

My research work in anomaly detection is thought of as one of the pioneering efforts in sensor data analytics, which is the key enabler of IoT  (Internet-of-Things). My publications cover the fields of machine learning, material science, applied optics, service computing, and project management, whose breadth and depth make me special as a business consultant as well.

In addition to research work, I have served as a people and project manager for years both in Japan and the United States.
