Profile Noboru Murata received the B. Eng., M. Eng. and Dr. Eng in Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics from the University of Tokyo in 1987, 1989 and 1992, respectively. He was a Research Associate at the University of Tokyo, and he was a Visiting Research with the Research Institute for Computer Architecture and Software Technology of German National Research Center for Information Technology (GMD FIRST) from 1995 to 1996 supported by Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. From January of 1997 until September of 1997, he was a Frontier Researcher with the Brain Information Processing Group in the Frontier Research Program at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) in Japan. From October of 1997 he was a Researcher at Laboratory for Information Synthesis in RIKEN Brain Science Institute, and from April of 1999 to March of 2000, he was a Senior Researcher. In April of 2000, he joined the Department of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering, Waseda University in Japan where he is presently an Associate Professor. His research interests include the theoretical aspects of learning machines such as neural networks, focusing on the dynamics and statistical properties of learning.
