KAIST announced on October 3 that '2018 KAIST key patent technology transfer briefing seminar' will be held at COEX, Seoul, from 1 pm on October 10 under the supervision of the Industry-academia cooperation team (chief, Choi Kyung-chul). This seminar was designed to create an industry-university cooperation model that not only creates jobs but also enhances corporate competitiveness by transferring the superior technologies possessed by researchers of KAIST to companies. Officials from industry-academia cooperation team said that "We prepared this briefing as part of the innovation plan for technology commercialization, one of the five innovation areas of KAIST Vision 2031, which announced in March that KAIST will become the world's leading university by 2031." and announced that they will hold a briefing every year to select patent technology and transfer it to companies. KAIST plans to provide business finance support services through cooperation with the Technology Guarantee Fund to companies that transfer selected technologies. These companies will also receive various services from KAIST, such as business model development, patent-R & D linkage strategy analysis, domestic and foreign marketing priority promotion. The technology that KAIST introduced this year is the core patent technology of bio, nano, artificial intelligence, and semiconductor which is the center of the 4th industrial revolution. ① New nano patterning platform technology (Prof. Jung Hee Tae, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering) ② Obtain candidate substances for immuno-activated chemotherapy (Prof. Byung-Seok Choi, Department of Chemistry) ③ Technology capable of mass production of biofuels using microorganisms (Professor Lee Sang-yeol, Department of Biochemical Engineering). ④ Compact single-shot ultra-spectral camera technology (Prof. Min H.

Establishment of smart science museum exhibition research group to improve exhibitions of the 4th industrial revolution era (Development of exhibition service technology that combines indoor location recognition technology with AR / VR, IoT, AI technology) The exhibition guidance for the science museum is expected to be renewed. KAIST (President, Shin Sung-chul) and the National Science Museum (President, Bae Tae-min) will showcase the smart science museum exhibition group that develops a system that guides the exhibition hall of science museum by linking indoor technology and key technologies of the fourth industrial revolution such as AR / VR and IoT Was launched. The research institute has nine universities including KAIST(School of Computing : Han Dong-su, Park Jin-a, Department of Industrial Design : Lee Ki-hyuk), Yonsei University, HanYang University and six research institutes including Electronic Component Research Institute and National Center for Science and Technology., A total of 15 tasks will be undertaken. From the second half of 2018 to 2022, about 13 billion won of government budget will be spent for four years. There have been many difficulties due to the lack of qualified and professional exhibition guides. The efficiency of exhibition guidance using smart phones was also slow. When the indoor location-based exhibition guidance system that the research team is aiming at is launched, visitors can receive exhibition information service through various methods including AR / VR technique depending on the location. Specifically, a service similar to the explanation of the exhibition guide will be provided through a smart phone. They will also apply living-wrapping techniques, which will be used to improve the exhibition, by conveying various feedbacks from spectators to the science museum immediately. The indoor location will utilize the KAIST Indoor Locating System (KAILOS), an indoor location recognition system developed by KAIST for a long time. Bae Jeong-Hoe of the National Science Museum said "Every year hundreds of thousands of young people visit the science museum. We should show them various examples of science contributing to the development of our society through exhibitions and instill dreams and inspiration through science. That is reason why the exhibition of science museum should be changed and developed in accordance with the 4th industrial revolution era. The exhibition should be changed in conjunction with the core technology of the 4th industrial revolution and the exhibition guidance should be made using the latest IT technology.”. Professor Han Dongsoo, the chair of the research group, said, "We will systematically organize the science museum display technology and exhibition contents into a smart science museum display platform, which will make the exhibition information system more flexible and easier to expand. AR/VR technology and indoor location recognition technology will be used in the exhibition guide.” The exhibition guidance system developed by the research team will be applied first to the National Science Museum and gradually expanded to 167 science museums across the country. It will be applied to museums and art museums in each district that show exhibits like a science museum. [그림] 주요 서비스
