Call for applications for post-doc positions at Physical Intelligence Lab


We are constantly seeking for highly motivated students and PhD researchers under the project in our lab to work in the fields of nonlinear dynamics, reservoir computing, and physical reservoir computing.
Looking forward to your applications!



Reservoir Computing Seminarを開催しています


2023年度秋学期のReservoir Computing Seminarを10月19日より開催します。
Reservoir Computingを中心に、

We are starting the reservoir computing (RC) seminar for autumn semester from 19th of October, 2023.

The seminar will be on zoom and cover RC approaches to soft robotics, nonlinear dynamics including chaos, spintronics, quantum machine learning.

We are planing for several open lectures by invited speakers, and if you are interested in joining them,

please contact for more details.
