    Tactileology, which I proposed, is introduced in a British academic magazine. Tactileology is a novel tactile science and engineering that deals with "tactile sense that changes like music melody." New haptics based on next-generation natural computing (natural computing not using a digital computer but computerize human and nature by an algorithm) and their applications (beauty, medical / healthcare, acoustic engineering, etc.) are introduced.

    Tactileology Changes the World

    Humankind has forgotten that tactile sense has the concept of time. Tactile time evolution, a time-varying tactile sensation like a melody. We invented the Tactile Score to describe it. The invention of the Tactile Score has had a significant impact on tactile science and engineering. Next-generation tactile science and engineering Basic research and engineering applications of Tactileology has applied to medical and healthcare, the music industry, and creating new jobs for people with disabilities and the elderly.

    General Computational Science

    understanding nature as algorithms​

    I have been living in the Turing Universe as a computer scientist: and considering about nature. I do explore life by using an "algorithm." I declare it as "General Computational Science," GCS based on the natural philosophy of Minakata Kumagusu.

    Topics: Harness computing, Molecular Robotics, Molecular Artificial Intelligence, Model-driven data analysis, Systems Biology, Computational Aesthetics, e.t.c.

    Sensory Communications

    communications via tactile senses​

    We extract various kinds of tactile sense by using Tactile Score and have proposed SENSONIC (haptic vibration) for beauty treatments, vibrotactile for wellbeing (medicine), Tactile Music, Media Art, e.t.c.

    Computational Aesthetics

    "Aesthetics" is not only a matter in Art or Design; it is the core issue in Natural Computing. Because wild nature stops computing when it reaches a beautiful state. For example, a computer algorithm that modifies images by mimicking the rules of natural selection can work with people to evolve new works of art. (Communication ACM) "

    the era of cosmetics had been over ​

    We have developed "algorithms for creating beauty" as an application of Computational Aesthetics; we have developed Artificial Intelligence for generating Tactile Scores for hand massages and creating Haptic Vibrations (SENSONIC) for beauty treatments and Wellbeing. (Beauty Artificial Intelligence, in JPN) "

    No hay caminos, hay que caminar

    Tactile Music ... music for "skin"

    my portfolio.. mainly.. music, video, photo..

    Music for skin, (by Yasuhiro Suzuki) I have composed music not for ears but skin; all works transformed from something in nature or man-made things: everything (audio, visual) media turned into a Tactile Score, T.S: and the T.S. transformed into sounds: in some of the works include haptic vibrations in the background, so you can enjoy it not only listening but also touching ... touch the speaker unit ;-)

    the history of tactile score (short movie)

     Toward the Tactile Score, by Y. Suzuki, this work shows how the Tactile Score has been obtained. From massage to the tactile score; this short movie illustrates the brief history of the "tactile score". このショートムービーではマッサージから触譜(マッサージや触覚を記述するためのノーテーション)に至ったかの歴史がまとめられています。

    Creating Tactile Score from a Japanese Old Tale, "Tale of Heike"

    ACM Digital library _ CHI2014 we extract tactile sense from an Old Japanese tale, the tale of Heike and describe it by using Tactile Score and we generate music and haptic vibration by transforming from the Tactile Score

    Creating Tactile Score from a Poem

    Matchatria is an art performance project by Yui Kawaguchi and Yoshimasa Ishibashi; we transform a poem to Tactile Score and retransform from Tactile Score to haptic vibration waves and music.

    SENSONIC ... haptic vibration designed by Tactile Score

    Hand massage is the art of tactile engineering, it has several thousand years history, but we can not massage thousands of people in parallel; hence we have developed a method to convert Tactile Score into Haptic Vibration, SENSE + SONIC = SENSONIC

    Beauty Treatment by SENSONIC

    We have proposed SENSONIC, which is a highly designed haptic vibration wave composed of Tactile Score. We produced beauty equipment by using SENSONIC and did a demonstration at the event, Niconico Chokaigi http://www.chokaigi.jp/ (our activities addressed in an article (in JPN) http://news.nicovideo.jp/watch/nw1617188

    Society implementation ... Tactile Score in Education

    Tactile Score has implemented in society; it has used in the school of beauty treatments; this is a video text of massage (FaceTherapie Channel).  

    Society Implementation ... "Branding" Beauty Treatment Shop

    Tactile Sense is irreducible and essential but almost has ignored; implement research activities of tactile sense into society is the most important; I have been "branding" beauty treatment based on primary research of tactile sense as FaceTherapie(TM): in order to create "the brand", I have been working as a photographer, designer, movie maker ... (this photograph is one of my artwork).

    Shokkaku 2019

    29-30, 2019 at Kyoto University JAPAN

    We have developed various tactile/haptic techniques and new media: in Shokkaku 2019, we collaborate with cutting edge artists and explore the future based on Tactileology.

    I was planning and producing this event.

    we wrote and based on our activities

    Tactile Score,

    Springer Verlag

    Yasuhiro & Rieko Suzuki

    This book deals with one of the most novel advances in natural computing, namely, in the field of tactile sense analysis. Massage, which provides relaxation and stimulation for human beings, is analyzed in this book for the first time by encoding the motions and tactile senses involved. The target audience is not limited to researchers who are interested in natural computing but also includes those working in ergonomic design, biomedical engineering, Kansei engineering, and cognitive science.

    Computational Aesthetics: from Tactile Score to Sensory Language in "Pervasive Haptics, Springer verlag

    (to be published, in JPN)

    General Computation Science, GCS is proposed by this book. GCS is based on natural science philosophy by Kumagusu Minakata; in this book based on his philosophy, the concept of "computation" is newly defined (expansion of Turing's definition) then mathematical framework and computational model, Abstract Rewriting System on Multisets, ARMS is proposed.
