TOMOBE Hironori

Born on 19th of September (1976). I come from Chigasaki. Chigasaki is famous for Tashiro Ramen. The school days, I'm interested in Natural Launguage Processing and Knowledge Representation for knowledge discovery. My research theme extends to not only the text mining but also the multimedia contents analysis in the COE project. Discussion Mining is an exactly suitable theme. I'm planning the support system for discussion activation and for extraction of useful knowledge from real world information. If you want more information of Discussion Mining Project, please see the project page (
