The Department of Creative Informatics (CI) within the Faculty of Computer Science and Systems Engineering at Kyushu Institute of Technology, was founded in 2002 (Quota: Master's course 27, Ph.D. course 8), and conducts research in new Information Technology (IT) concerned with the methodology of analysis & synthesis, modeling and kernel for practical problems.

As shown in the Figure, CI is composed of four divisions:
(1) MONO: Electrical devices involving computers (device performance),
(2) WAZA: Computer-supported operation of various technologies (efficiency of manufacturing and design processes),
(3) HITO: Computer-supported organization management (business modeling and integration), and
(4) CHIE: Computer-supported personal activities (activities of human intelligence).

MONO, WAZA, HITO, and CHIE, which are ancient Japanese words, mean object, skill, human, and intelligence, respectively.

Recently, rapid changes in the social situation have caused various kinds of serious problems such as unemployment, economic depression, poverty, and environmental destruction. Based on a needs-oriented approach, new information technologies of CI can play important roles in the resolution of these problems. In medical, educational, logistical, manufacturing, and telematics areas, CI technologies are widely applicable and create new business opportunities.
