Masahiro Mori (roboticist)
MASAHIRO MORI (森 政弘, Mori Masahiro, born 1927) is a Japanese roboticist noted for his pioneering work on the emotional response of humans to non-human entities, as well as for his views on religion and robots . The ASIMO robot was designed by one of Masahiro's students. In 1970, Mori published "Bukimi No Tani" (不気味の谷 The Uncanny Valley ) in Energy. The article forwarded the hypothesis that as robots become more humanlike, they appear more familiar until a point is reached at which subtle imperfections of appearance make them look eerie. The observation led Mori to the belief that robot builders should not attempt to make their creations overly lifelike in appearance and motion. In 1974, Mori published The Buddha in the Robot: a Robot Engineer's Thoughts on Science and Religion in which he discussed the metaphysical implications of robotics

Shigefumi Mori
SHIGEFUMI MORI (森 重文, Mori Shigefumi, born February 23, 1951) is a Japanese mathematician , known for his work in algebraic geometry , particularly in relation to the classification of three-folds . He generalized the classical approach to the classification of algebraic surfaces to the classification of algebraic three-folds . The classical approach used the concept of minimal models of algebraic surfaces . He found that the concept of minimal models can be applied to three-folds as well if we allow some singularities on them. The extension of Mori’s results to dimensions higher than three is called the Mori program and, as of 2006, is an active area of algebraic geometry . He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1990 at the International Congress of Mathematicians
