Tetsuo Kodera, Ryohei Banno, and Norihisa Kawashima were selected as the first-ever recipients of the Suematsu Digital Technology Award by a panel of judges from both inside and outside the Institute on September 12.
Tokyo Tech established the Suematsu Award "Fundamentals and Developments of Digital Technology" in 2018 to encourage young researchers interested in developing digital technology that will serve as foundational technology of the future. The award provides a broad range of support for researchers focusing on areas such as computers, robotics, and networks, and for research into applications of digital technology.
The award is funded by the Suematsu Fund, which was created within the Tokyo Institute of Technology Fund. In commemoration of the award's establishment, Special Awards for Remarkable Achievement were also presented to two other recipients.
