◆We presented our company award to Osaka University’s Mr. Yokoyama for:


 Masahiro Yokoyama (Osaka Univ.), Takahiro Hara (Osaka Univ.), Shojiro Nishio(OsakaUniv.)

We’re very interested in the topics of how best to utilize location data, how to effectively extract data with the highest scores from large amounts of data (top-k), and how to ensure data diversity. So we have high hopes for further development in these areas.

Congratulations, Mr. Yokoyama!
