There are no required courses or knowledge to join us. Regardless of your skills, you can join us if you are interested in our research topics and eager to work together.
About our activities
In Delight, we have regular meetings every Thursday's 3rd-5th period. Students who take our courses are required to attend these meetings on-site. In these meetings, we read papers, discuss research topics, and do group work to improve our knowledge and skills.
Our research topics relate to "decentralized systems" or "distributed systems." In particular, we focus on "digital identity," "verifiable data architecture," and "network architecture," but we are not limited to these topics. As long as it is related to "decentralized systems" or "distributed systems," you can freely work on it.
For example, we have done the following activities in the past.
- Read papers and acquire knowledge that is the basis of research activities
- Learn the basics of computer science using CS50
- Read a book named "Mastering Bitcoin" and learn the basics of blockchain
- Read a book named "入門 コンピュータ科学" (Introduction to Computer Science) and learn the basics of computer architecture
- Do a hackathon for a semester as a team and acquire basic software development skills
- Hold a discussion meeting and discuss hot topics in the field as said above
In addition, Delight is collaborating with the Delight Working Group of the WIDE Project, and we are also interacting with researchers outside SFC.
