Protein Interaction Networks
I proposed a novel method for analyzing large scale complex networks and this method has applied to analyze protein interactions in yeast then prevail hidden structures and also my method can discover drug-targeting proteins
Create a computational life in PC
I proposed computational chemistry and by using it, I succeeded to create computational living systems in PC; they evolve themselves from single cells to multi-cell and can adjust to environmental change. And also I can implement chemically this system by using "real" DNA molecules... it may not be an Artificial Life but Real Life.
私は計算機内に化学反応系をつくり，そのなかに生命体を創発させることに成功しました．この生命体は自ら単細胞から多細胞へと進化を行いさらに環境の変動に対して適用します．私はさらにこのモデルをDNA分子により化学的に実現しました...これはもうArtificial Lifeではなく，Real Lifeといえるかもしれません．
Abstract Rewriting System on Multisets, ARMS
a model of Chemical Reactions
I proposed a computational model, Abstract Rewriting System on Multisets, ARMS as an abstract model of Chemical Reactions. This model is based on Computational Algebra and Physical Chemistry. Also ARMS a computational expression of the philosophy of Minakata Kumagusu, Japanese Naturalist. He is a monster, published 51 papers in Nature. ARMS did a simulation of Belouzov-Zhabotinsky reaction by using the symbol rewritings and made a "boom" of BZ reaction in Computational Algebra and in some PhD thesis treated ARMS (in EU).
Tactile Score / Tactileology
for creating Nature Computing model by using Tactile language
I and professor Masami Hagiya (Tokyo Univ.) have found a research group of Natural Computing in JSAI: and I've considered "what is Nature + Computing" then proposed computerized nature by the algorithm; the universal language in Nature is the tactile sense, so we proposed the Tactile Score. Tactile Score is a breakthrough to open up novel research area "Tactileology".. Please see "Mission" below

Abstract Rewriting System on Multisets
An artificial chemistry is a chemical-like system that usually consists of objects, called molecules, that interact according to rules resembling chemical reaction rules. Artificial chemistries are created and studied in order to understand fundamental properties of chemical systems, including prebiotic evolution, as well as for developing chemical computing systems. Artificial chemistry is a field within computer science wherein chemical reactions—often biochemical ones—are computer-simulated, yielding insights on evolution, self-assembly, and other biochemical phenomena. go to WikiPedia

from past works
Back Ground "Tactile" not Music. Tactileology is a science&engineering of time-varying tactile sense like a melody; which enable us to use Tactile Sense like a Music. Collaboration with an Tactile Artist & NTT we created an "Tactile Animation; animation + melody of various tactile. (ICC art-museum, 2018, her cushions vibrate the body, while watching the animation).
What is the Tactile Score?
describe method to a "melody" of tactile sense
what is Tactileology?
in Japanese (3min)
In this talk, I introduce Tactile-Sensibility Artificial Intelligence, which processes not logic or language but Informations transformed into Tactile Score,T-bit.
T-bit enables us to processing Tactile and Sensibility of Informations and also easy to combine with ordinal IoT or Information Techniques.
By using T-bit technique, we will able to create a "Draemon" in the near future.

Tactile Music ... music for "skin"
collective works, sonification of tactile sense
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 ;-)
サウンドクラウド（soundcloud フリーの音楽サイト）には自然・社会・歴史的演説・などなどから抽出された「触覚」をそのまま音に変換した，触覚音楽があります．スマッシュ!ヒット（笑）は，競馬の実況中継の触覚，から制作したKEIBAです．この楽曲は英国のレコード会社からプロモーション契約を依頼されたこともありました ;-)
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 https://www.chokaigi.jp/
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).
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.
from books I published or edited
Foundation of Natural Computing
Yasuhiro Suzuki (in JPN)
In this book, a theory of computation based on Buddhist philosophy is proposed based on criticism of Leibniz. Furthermore, based on that theory of computation, tactile computation is introduced; Computing with Tactile sense is not just a theory on the table; the authors have commercialized and commercialized tactile artificial intelligence. Moreover, part of their business is applied to the treatment of dementia.
In this book, we proposed the philosophical and computational foundation of Natural computing. Namely, we built a novel framework of Natural computing as Inter-Induced computing based on the philosophy of Kumagusu Minakata, a Japanese naturalist. We show an example of Inter-Induce computing as Computing with Tactile sense.
The first-ever book to explore the value of tactile sense studies for ergonomic engineering
The essence of natural computing is aesthetics; for example, in cooking, one of the most common forms of natural computation, the decision to add salt, and how much, is based on the aesthetics of taste. Because touch perception is instinctively related to a sense of beauty, the aesthetics of tactile sense are considered as algorithms by using the Tactile Score, which encodes tactile sensation. This book will appeal not only to researchers of natural computing or aesthetics, but also those working in ergonomic design, haptic-Kansei engineering, philosophy, design and art.
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,
Based on General Computational Science GCS, Aesthetics is the core of computation; in this book we consider GCS and propose the Computational Aesthetics which is not relating to prior considerations by Barkov or Kawamoto
Creating novel Aesthetics
Fuminori Akiba (in JPN)
Our Research activities in Natural Computing, (Harness computing), Tactile Score, etc are introduced. I did design the cover of this book; the graphic of the book is the scientific visualization (related to the Lotoka-Volterra equations). He proposed novel Aesthetics based on our "Harness computing".
