 *Akihiko Shirai, Ph.D (Dr. Eng) [#u980aea9]
 -Science Communicator in Miraikan (Japan)
 --Currently working as ''Science Communicator'' in National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan), Tokyo Japan.
 --Development of new exhibition to tell the latest emerging science and innovation in ''Information Science and Technology for Socity'' area.
 -Computer Engineering Researcher (France)
 --Currently Emeritus Researcher of ENSAM Presence & Innovation laboratory. Working for research and development of virtual reality and computer entertainment systems. 
 //Computer entertainment industries are enlarging day by day. However, most commercial activities focus to graphics and sales in current market. When I had worked for Criterion, RenderWare, an official rendering engine on PlayStation2 platform, most game projects need beautiful computer graphics but they understand; graphics is not a goal, just a part of computer entertainment. Then I have decided to back to academia and got Ph.D diploma by "Future computer entertainment systems". It uses virtual reality techniques like haptics with full body interaction system. Actually, most current entertainment technologies, especially development of game contents by Japanese are build on experimental knowledge. In short, there are no actual researches to clear "Why we can enjoy with computer systems? 
 //Now, I'm working in Laval, a famous VR research city in west France. It has "Laval Virtual", annual VR festival and a great project of VR theme park that will be opened at 2007. My task is research, development and promotion for these projects, of course, I teach for master and doctor courses specialized for virtual reality development and research in Laval.

 NHK is national broadcasting company. I had worked for NiCT (National Institute of Information and Communication) project with NHK STRL (Science and Technology Research Institute) to realize ultra photo realistic real-time computer graphics environment for next generation TV platform. 
 I had developed image based rendering, modeling systems, global illumination rendering system on Maya platform, applications of Axi-Vision, a new depth camera system that was developed by NHK STRL, wire-based motion control camera system, etc in very short term. I had also learned project management and submission style for Japanese governmental research projects. 
 Part of research results are archived below;

 Criterion is a spinout of canon research institute, RenderWare, an official rendering engine on PlayStation2 platform, my task was launching Tokyo office to evaluate the next generational development style using RenderWare, optimized multi platform environment, to traditional Japanese game developers. 
 I had learned Japanese game developer tradition and techniques. Fortunately, RenderWare had been accepted a lot of game titles. The office has grown well then I could decide to back to academia. I also learned management of small company here.

 -System Engineer in printer factory, 
 Unfortunately, the posting by Canon human resource division had mismatched at my first selection, I had to work in BJ printer factory in north Japan. Then I had learned Japanese practical electronic manufacture, especially manufacturing management with information technologies like production control procedure, production management accounting, knockdown export, stocktaking, mainframe, database, end user computing, web interface, etc... 
 Fortunately, I had assigned as a project management of development an inventory management system using wireless barcode reader. These experiments are very important in my engineering method. And countryside life in Fukushima Japan was impressive for me.
