Class1-Class7: Lectures

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Data Science in Pharma Industries An overview of clinical research that observes and analyzes patient data to control factors affecting health and data science used in drug development will be presented.
Class 2 Challenges and Opportunities in Oncology Drug Development ---A statistical Point of View Various recent attempts to treat cancer and the role of data science for this purpose are described.
Class 3 DXing the Judiciary and the State of LegalTech This presentation will introduce the IT-enabled court system in Japan (online trials, digitization of court records, etc.), the trend of new services in legal practice called "LegalTech" (online contracts, contract checking, judgment prediction, etc.), and the use of AI technology in these services.
Class 4 Toppan Printing's Use of Data Science and AI in DX This lecture aims to understand and master the use of data in the manufacturing industry in addition to how research in academia is introduced into industry through case studies of image/document-based R&D in the printing business and manufacturing data analysis/solution development.
Class 5 Solutions for construction, technologies supporting smart construction (AI, 3D, web development) Smart Construction is a solution for the construction industry and as of July 2022 has been installed on over 20,000 construction sites. Smart Construction is developing in-house to quickly address customer needs, with particular emphasis on the areas of 3D technology, web development, and statistical machine learning. This lecture will introduce product development from the customer's perspective, the in-house development technologies (3D, WEB, ML) that support it, and Saas Plus a Box in actual business use.
Class 6 Digital Strategies and Data Use by Digital General Contractors Shimizu Corporation's mid-term digital strategy will be explained at the beginning of the session. Examples of data utilization will be presented and discussed for each of the areas that comprise it: "Manufacturing Digitally," "Providing Digital Spaces and Services," and "Digital Supporting Manufacturing.
Class 7 Practical Application of Data Analysis and its Challenges Machine learning algorithms have evolved over the years, enabling the efficient development of high-performance data analysis programs. However, there are various issues to be addressed in order to apply them to business sites and keep them running continuously. These issues will be introduced along with case studies.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.



Reference books, course materials, etc.

Materials will be provided on T2SCHOLA in advance and shared in the Zoom lecture
