Hideto Kazawa | TEDxTokyo 2013
A master of system design specializing in mechanics and natural language processing, Google’s Hideto Kazawa dove into the development of disaster recovery systems after the Great East Japan Earthquake as a member of the crisis response team. He called on a deep background in the field: a degree from the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Science, research work at NTT Communication Science Laboratories, the PhD program at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, and his work as a senior engineering manager at Google.
Hideto joined Google as an engineer in 2006, charged with overseeing the development of machine translation and web search. Now he also participates in a roundtable IT revival symposium sponsored by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and continues to support reconstruction efforts from the system end.
