Journey to Research: Takeo Kanade's Lecture at NCKU

Synergy Correlation

 
On November 6th, the Miin Wu School of Computing at NCKU invited Dr. Takeo Kanade, a renowned Japanese computer scientist, to give a lecture on "My Journey of Computer Vision and Robotics." The topic focused on his experiences and insights into becoming a researcher. The lecture, which attracted around 500 students and faculty members, was attended by NCKU President Meng-Ru Shen, Acting Dean of the Miin Wu School of Computing Huey-Jen Su, Chairman of Macronix International Co., Ltd. Miin Wu, and several professors from NCKU.


Dr. Takeo Kanade is an outstanding researcher in the field of computer vision and a recognized authority in robotics and image recognition. His research encompasses various areas, including unmanned vehicles, autonomous helicopters, EyeVision, facial recognition, and virtual reality. Dr. Kanade has received numerous awards for his contributions, such as the Bower Award from the Franklin Institute, the C&C Prize, the Okawa Prize, the Tateisi Prize Grand Award, and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Pioneer Award.


Starting from July 2022, Dr. Kanade has been providing guidance to the NCKU Intelligent Sports Science project through monthly meetings. The project aims to establish the Zhongzheng Hall as a smart sports arena. Led by Professor Lien Cheng-chieh from the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at NCKU, the interdisciplinary team comprises 16 professors and around 30 graduate students. The team received initial funding of NT$8 million from the College of Intelligent Computing in its first year. Under Dr. Kanade's guidance, the team completed the preliminary setup of an AI edge-cloud computing platform in July 2023, which will be showcased at the opening match of the Corporate Volleyball League in mid-October.


During the lecture, Dr. Kanade shared his early research experiences in areas such as facial recognition when technology was not as advanced. He also discussed later research endeavors in unmanned vehicles, EyeVision, and more. Dr. Kanade emphasized the importance of maintaining the mindset of "Thinking like an Amateur, Doing as an Expert" for researchers. He encouraged students to create scenarios, think about possible research outcomes, and consider how the research could be practically applied. Dr. Kanade stressed the need for researchers to retain a free and interesting way of thinking while actively sharing their research or stories with a broader audience, as such sharing could potentially influence or inspire others' thinking.
