Dr. Keiichiro Taniguchi is an associate professor at The University of Tokyo.
The main theme of Taniguchi laboratory is to propose and practice the design methods that utilize thermal and air environment simulation to achieve an energy-efficient and comfortable building environment. Through detailed measurement surveys in existing buildings, we will improve the accuracy of prediction by simulation during design, and propose a prediction method that takes into account the uncertainties surrounding buildings that are inevitable in the operational stage. In addition, focusing on the environmental adjustment behavior of humans, which greatly contributes to the reduction of energy consumption during building operation, we will develop technology to encourage people to change their behavior by visualizing the thermal environment and air environment using real-time simulations under actual operating conditions using AI technology.
