Hi, I am Keishi Tainaka, doctor student.
Our research using TSUNDERE that was one of Japanese sub-cultures was broadcast on “Nanikore Chinhyakkei”!!
This is one of the most famous and popular TV programs in Japan.
It usually introduces unusual or interesting things and landscapes that you have never seen before.
In this program, it introduced our research that motivates workers using TSUNDERE characteristics.
In the program, They introduced the good points of NAIST, AR and VR technologies, and our research (TSUNDERE) in a very amusing way.
When I watched it live, I felt very happy that the contents were more complete and impressive than I had imagined.
Finally, if the three program committees feel it interesting and unusual, it will be registered as “Chinhyakkei”. (“Chinhyakkei” means 100 unusual and interesting views.)
Finally, our research was registered as “Chinhyakkei”.
We are proud to appear in such a program and get this title.
Hello, I am Keishi Tainaka, D3 student.
I attended a research group of Cloud Network Robotics (CNR) with Asst Prof. Sawabe at Okinawa on this July.
He presented “Evaluation of VR appearance changes and comfort impressions of multimodal interactive agents that ‘talk while stroking’.”
I presented my research of TSUNDERE at the award ceremony since I received the “Student Presentation Award” for my previous presentation “TSUNDERE Interaction – Investigation of the Influence of a Stroking AR Agent on Behavior Modification” last year.
At my presentation, during the 20 minutes I could speak freely, I talked mainly about my activities in the last year and future work. The audience seemed tired since the presentation was given in the evening, but “TSUNDERE” made them unexpectedly fun, and I was very satisfied with the presentation.
Also, listening to the other presentations, there were researchers who were focusing on “behavior modification using agents” from different viewpoints from ours, and it was very helpful to us.
I got to eat Okinawa’s specialties like root beer, hamburgers, and Soki soba!
The weather was perfect, we went snorkeling in a beautiful sea!
After all, it’s nice to present onsite!
I hope the corona will calm down and onsite presentation will become usual~!
