What is Cross Labs?
Bridging the Gap Between Academia and Industry
Founded in Tokyo in 2019, the Cross Research Institute – Cross Labs for short – is a research institute for the fundamental principles of intelligence. We seek to uncover the mathematical bases of all intelligent processes, observable both in nature and in artificial environments, and to design new tools to better solve problems in the industry. Thus, Cross Labs bridges the gap between industrial and academic research, by promoting fundamental and applied science in connection with technological needs of society.
AI Improving Life in Our Society
Cross Labs is at the edge of a huge technological step, with applications quickly changing the dynamics of life in society. As we are facing a shortage of labor force in the industry, the advent of Deep Learning brought a new set of solutions to the industrial scene. Our researchers create and adapt cutting-edge technology to improve the quality of products, increase productivity, and assist workers in the various contexts of manufacturing, robotics, medical, IoT, marketing, and finance.
Cross Labs: Beyond AI
In addition to bringing the latest research to society, Cross Labs devotes a special effort to keep innovating in AI technology. We take inspiration and integrate research from the many fields that tackle the phenomenon of intelligence: artificial intelligence, robotics, cognitive neuroscience, artificial life, computer vision, natural language processing, and many other disciplines. By exploring intelligence from its very fundamental principles, we seek to invent new machine intelligences, unraveling new paths towards the achievement of an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).
An Active Hub for Intelligence Science
From April 2019, Cross Labs ‘s mission pans across the academic and industrial research, to catalyze progress in intelligence science. Additionally to producing state-of-the-art research, we aim to consolidate a scientific hub in all intelligence sciences, gathering university labs, tech companies, and research institutions to collaborate on research projects, target workshops and scientific meetings.
