Profile

Noriko Arai received her doctoral degree in science from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1998.
Her research interests are mathematical logic, math education and computer supported collaborative learning, and she has been serving as program committee members in many international conferences in these research areas.
As the director of the center of Research Center for Community Knowledge at National Institute of Informatics (Japan), she is leading several projects. Netcommons Project and Researchmap Project.
NetCommons is the most popular content management system used in Japanese schools. More than 5,000 schools are now using NetCommons as their homepages or groupwares. She leads an AI project "Can an AI pass the entrance exams of the University of Tokyo (Todai Robot Project" since 2011, and also "Reading Skill Test Project" which measures basic reading skills for youth.
She was awarded Prizes for Science and Technology, the Commendation for Science and Technology by Ministry of Education and Technology in 2010, and Nexplo Awards in 2016.
