Collaborating with people to create new value

Our focus is on realizing a sustainable society by developing cutting-edge AI technologies that not only create new value but also contribute to the transformation of society and business.

Automatic machine learning, commonly known as 'AutoML,' holds great promise in democratizing the use of machine learning (ML) by automating a significant portion of the tasks typically performed by data scientists. However, the vast search space of potential pipelines presents a challenge, often leading to the generation of suboptimal or no pipelines, especially when dealing with large and complex datasets.

Fujitsu Research has actively tackled this issue by developing a unique AutoML technology called 'Fujitsu AutoML.' Leveraging a collection of pre-existing datasets and their human-created pipelines, this technology enables the efficient generation of high-quality pipelines for new datasets with predictive tasks. With Fujitsu AutoML, data scientists can rapidly create and modify AI models, as the code is provided along with detailed explanations. Moreover, citizen data scientists can easily create the desired AI models as well.
