Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Co., Ltd.
Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Co., Ltd. (hereafter “NTT”) will launch a new research center on July 1st, 2019 in Silicon Valley, California in order to strengthen the fundamental and innovative research needed for global innovation and next-generation technologies in line with its medium-term management strategy, Your Value Partner 2025, announced on November 6th, 2018.
For the acceleration of new value creation, NTT drives collaboration with various service providers. In order to enhance competitiveness in global collaboration, NTT is focusing its efforts on “disruptive innovation” that will create new innovative solutions. NTT reinforces its human power, technologies and assets by enhancing its global network, communication, collaboration and R&D, in line with its medium-term management strategy, Your Value Partner 2025. NTT Laboratories will strengthen the structure of delivery and localization for R&D products and globalize their research targets. Furthermore, with the aim of further enhancing its fundamental and innovative research capability, NTT will establish a new research corporation, NTT Research, Inc., in Silicon Valley, California.
NTT Research, Inc., will launch a new research center, NTT Φ (PHI) Laboratories, on July 1st, 2019, to explore the interdisciplinary areas between physics (PHysics) and information science (Informatics), where NTT has explored unique concepts over the past thirty years. The official name of the new research center is NTT Quantum Science & Computing Laboratories. The laboratories will promote basic research on quantum theory of open-dissipative systems and its application to information processing. Yoshihisa Yamamoto, a professor emeritus at NII (National Institute of Informatics) and Stanford University and a program manager of ImPACT (Impulsing Paradigm Change through Disruptive Technologies Program) at the Cabinet Office of Government of Japan, will be invited to be the director of the laboratories.
In order to enhance the fundamental and innovative research capability of NTT laboratories, the following two laboratories will also be launched at NTT Research, Inc.
NTT Research, Inc. will invite excellent researchers from around the world through the human networks of the directors of laboratories and will form new research teams that will collaborate with NTT R&D in Japan. (Figure 1)
NTT Research, Inc. will actively share information on advanced cutting-edge technologies with our operating companies and enhance the competitiveness of our global business as One NTT.
