研究概要 Supporting Intercultural Collaboration with Machine Translation and Intelligent Agent

For society and organizations, diversity provides vast benefits, because it has a substantial
impact on innovativeness. Cultural difference, which is the diversity of cultural background,
could lead to a wider variety of ideas, and one or some of those diverse ideas could lead to a
promising design or solution. Even though diversity has significant advantages, it also comes
with difficulties in collaboration. With different cultural and language backgrounds, communication and collaboration become challenging. It is crucial to distribute the chance of
communication, regardless of their cultural or language background, to maximize the benefit
of diversity. Understanding cultural differences is also essential to avoid misunderstanding in
communication.

My research goal is to design a support system that will lower the misunderstanding and
conflicts in intercultural collaboration and multilingual communication. Together with my
professors and collaborators, we conducted a field study and interviews to understand the real-world problems in intercultural collaboration. To solve those problems, our research focuses on designing the support system from two aspects, including language difference issues and cultural difference issues.
