Grants-in-aid for scientific research
Research on Corpus Construction and Text Analyzer for Negation Focus in Japanese  Young scientists (B)  2013/04/01-2015/03/31  I have constructed language resources and tools for negation focus analysis in Japanese text. They include the following three main components: (1) a corpus of 2,147 pairs of negation triggers and their foci, (2) a new data format to support annotation layers for data sharing, and, (3) a detector of the focus of a negation trigger in Japanese, which achieved accuracy of 80 % in the domain of hotel reviews and news text. 
Research on creation of language resources for high- precision modality analysis in Japanese  Young scientists (B)  2011/04/01-2013/03/31  I have constructed language resources and tools for Japanese modality analysis. They include the following three main components: (1) a corpus of 41,799 eventswith extended modality tags, which are extracted from the latest version of “Balanced Corpusof Contemporary Written Japanese”, (2) a corpus of 1,785 pairs of negation triggers and their foci, and, (3) a detector of the focus of a negation trigger in Japanese, which achieved accuracy of 80 % in the domain of posted reviews about hotel service. 
Research on systematization and collection of lexical knowledge for recognizing synonymous predicate phrases  Young scientists start-up  2008/04/01-2010/03/31  I have constructed a system of lexical knowledge for recognizing synonymous predicate phrases, and compiled a knowledge base including the following two main components : (i) A list of semantic relations between two predicate-argument structures, whose size is 16,157 at abstract level and 351,264 at surface-form level ; (ii) A dictionary of 3,145 modality verbs and 517 modality adjectives.

External fund
自律機械と市民をつなぐ責任概念の策定  Other grants  JST RISTEX  研究助成  2017/10/01-2020/09/30  人工知能を搭載した自律機械の社会実装が現実味を帯びつつある中、社会的不安も同時に発生している。その種の不安が発生する理由のひとつは自律機械が起こした事故や、生み出した被害への責任の帰属先が不明瞭であることによる。 この不安を軽減するための手段として、本プロジェクトは、自律機械が実装された社会の中でも説得力を持つような責任概念を提案する。自律機械が社会になじむには、自律機械の社会的位置づけが、非専門家たる市民にも納得できるように、歴史的・文化的背景からも説明されなければならない。そのためには、現在の技術的・社会的状況を踏まえつつも、「自律機械が人間と対等と見なされるためには何が必要か」という問い―この問いは「人間とは何か」の裏返しである―を人類が積み上げてきた人文学的知見に投影する哲学的考察が必要である。そして、この考察に基づき、自律機械と市民をつなぐ新たな責任概念の策定を目指す。 
Development of Question Answering System which Answers with MOOCs Videos and Slides  Donations for research  人工知能研究振興財団  研究助成  2014/01/01-2016/03/31  授業の自動収録映像の内容理解と検索に焦点を当てて研究を進めた.個別学生や教室全体の活性度を調べるために,映像の時間差分量などを用いた解析手法を提案するなど,アクティブラーニングの定量的解析にも利用できる知見を得た.時系列・マルチモーダルデータの解析のためには,そのデータ量が膨大になっても動作することを目指して,オンライン処理を対象とした研究を進めた.言語メタデータの解析のため,含意認識を対象とした研究を進めた.
