TDAI discusses global partnership with University of Tsukuba

Over the past year, directors from both TDAI and the University of Tsukuba in Japan have been discussing new ideas for collaboration and innovation. This partnership has been a long-standing one, started by Ohio State alumnus Shuzaburo Takeda, PhD., who has been a steady advocate for a relationship between U.S. and Japan over the years. The premise of this partnership revolves around completing joint research and advancing data science through education. Takeda earned his PhD in physics from Ohio State in 1969 and is now President of Takeda & Associates, based out of Tokyo, Japan and is now a senior advisor to the Japanese minister of education.

Tanya Berger-Wolf, Faculty Director of TDAI and Cathie Smith, Managing Director at TDAI, hosted Drs. Tetsuya Sakurai and Caroline Benton from the University of Tsukuba along with Dr. Takeda last week to discuss many potential opportunities for further collaboration between both institutions. These plans are just a starting point and represent the growth and expansion of a global relationship that could provide invaluable research and data science opportunities.
