About

Adansons Inc. is an AI startup from Tohoku University. We provide real-world data analysis, research and development, and solutions using our unique AI algorithm (AI-Reference). We primarily focus on providing an anomaly detection service based on time-series data analysis of voice, vibration, biometric data, and video, as well as a health status analysis service based on vital data analysis.


Vision

Triggering the Next Information Revolution

We aim for innovation in the next-generation information society based on our mission, which is “to contribute to the creation of a society in which everyone can live a prosperous life with peace of mind through next-generation AI technology and an information square where everyone wants to gather, by reconstructing AI from the theory on which it stands.” AI technology used in industry and society must be safe, correct, and essentially useful to people. We create AI technology that is lacking in the current information society, implement it as a service that is used naturally, and advance science and civilization.

Technology

AI-Reference (*) is a new machine learning algorithm that realizes the world’s first concept of “reference-based” AI, which can learn by reflecting human intentions and correlated data.

This enables highly accurate feature extraction and real-time analysis from very noisy data, mainly time-series data, by combining a significant reduction in preprocessing costs, a training time that is reduced by a factor of ten from that of conventional AI, and white-box nature.

It employs a forward propagation algorithm based on a unique concept that is structurally very different from existing deep learning.

(*) International patent pending

In the course of his research, he became aware of the problem that excellent research technologies are not implemented in society, and founded TUP Inc. in 2018. As the CEO, he experienced the development of several material-based seeds projects in collaboration with researchers. He then founded Adansons Inc. in June 2019 with Kimura and Nakaya for the social implementation of technologies that are truly necessary for the future of society.

He has had a high interest in programming and computer science since elementary school. White attending Kwansei Gakuin High School, he became the youngest member of the Mathematical Society of Japan (full member) and the youngest recipient of the 36th Young Scientist Incentive Award of the Information processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) Game Information Science Research Association. He also received many other awards in international academic conferences and programming contests. While studying at Tohoku University, he majored in computer science, specializing in machine learning and combinatorial game theory. His goal is to expand human potential through technology, generalize what was previously possible only for a few people, and create a world in which many people can freely do “whatever they want.”

Through working at Adansons, he aims to create AI technology that can be used safely in the medical field and that can coexist with humans, and to establish an AI ecosystem based on this technology. While studying medicine at Tohoku University, he is also well versed in computer science and leads and trains teams in infrastructure construction and application development on AWS and GCP. His hobbies include golf, sauna, and cooking. If he cooks without looking at a recipe, he usually fails.
