<Intelligence> Dr. Kiki Ueno

Former KCG Institute of Information Sciences, a world-renowned astrophysicist of radiation transport theory, Prof. Kazuo Ueno = Professor Emeritus of Kyoto University / Kanazawa Institute of Technology = passed away on October 19 It was.I was 100 years old.In addition to making significant contributions to the scientific demonstration of global environmental problems, we have made significant contributions to the development of the University's education.I express my condolences.

Throughout the night, the funeral is run only by relatives.

Ueno graduated from Kyoto University, Faculty of Science, Doctor of Science.In addition to being a professor at Kanazawa Institute of Technology, he also served as a visiting professor at the Institute of Astrophysics in Paris, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, a visiting professor at the University of Southern California and the University of Massachusetts, and became the first director of the KCG Information Science Laboratory in 1988. I was taken.Not only was he led by the computer science research of the KCG group during his time as director, but he also made many contributions to the internationalization of the KCG group. It was.

The theory of radiation transport studied by Prof. Ueno is also called "radiation transfer theory" and is attracting attention as an important research field that scientifically demonstrates global environmental problems.Prof. Ueno is aware of the early occurrence of global environmental problems and is known for his vigorous efforts in scientific demonstration using satellite data.A science team of “atmosphere correction of satellite data” that is currently active in the Space Development Agency is born from the group that tackles the global environmental problems of artificial satellites created by Professor Ueno.In this way, I was able to continue my research activities on the front lines for a long time, and during that time, I left a great footprint in international joint research and academic activities.

Many researchers have been taught by Ueno, including Dr. Atsuko Hasegawa at Kyoto Computer Gakuin, Director of NASA Goddard Space Science Institute, Visiting Professor at Columbia University, Dr. James Hansen, and Dr. Ueno in March 2011. In commemoration of his 100th birthday (February 26), a symposium was just held at Kyoto Computer Gakuin Kyoto Station School.

The reliability of the eyes to read ahead of the times, the surrounding researchers were respectful, serious, generous personality and aspiring.I thank you from the bottom of my heart and pray for a peaceful eternal sleep.
