Hirokazu Kiyomaru


Thank you for visiting.

I am Hirokazu Kiyomaru, a second-year master student at Kyoto University. My current research interests are in language comprehension and the computational realization.

I enjoy not only research but also product development. There are many technologies which have the potential to change the world dramatically but stay cooped up in research fields. I would like to take them out and produce a better world.
