'Eiji Osawa is emeritus professor of computational chemistry at Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan, noted for his prediction of the C60 molecule in 1970. Osawa received his Masters of Engineering in chemistry from Kyoto University Department of Industrial Chemistry and then became an engineer at Teijin Co. Ltd. In 1964, he returned to Kyoto University and earned a Doctorate of Engineering in chemistry. After three years of postdoctoral work at the University of Wisconsin, Princeton University and the State University of New York at Stony Brook, in 1970 he became an assistant professor at Hokkaido University. In 1990, Osawa became a full professor at Toyohashi University of Technology, where he retired in 2001. Upon his retirement, assisted by Futaba, Co., Ltd., Osawa started the research and development company Nano-Carbon Research Institute, Ltd.'
People start to believe that deep learning models can approximate any function, according to the ‘Universal Approximation Theorem’. However, when businessmen come to your front door and offer you projects, think twice before being captivated by their charisma or shinning golds, simply because you never know what kinds of data they will offer for the problems to be solved, and data matters. In this talk I will present you some experiences I gathered during the past years, including the data we dealt with, the approaches we tried, and the problems we encountered.
