University of Oxford signs Memorandum of Understanding with Waseda University


To support exchanges of graduate students and staff and to collaborate on research, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics at Oxford and Waseda University in Tokyo. The new Memorandum of Understanding was established following the visit of Professor Hironori Kasahara (senior executive vice president of Waseda) in November to give a lecture on green computing; Professor Jeremy Gibbons (Computer Science) and Professor Peter Braam (Physics) made the return visit to Waseda in January to set up the memorandum. Waseda is one of the top private universities in Japan, with particular strengths in robotics and green computing, and this agreement will provide new opportunities for working together, particularly in machine learning and programming languages.
