The meaning of Research in the Age of the 4’th Industrial Revolution


Abstract

At the Davos Forum held in the last year, it was claimed that we were about to enter the 4’th industrial revolution which is characterized by the range of technologies that fuse the physical and digital worlds, and thereby not only industries but also our lives will be redefined in an unprecedented way. If this is the case, the framework for conducting research, and even further, the way we regard research itself will have be changed as well. In this talk, I will first present the historical context in which the technology advances are crystalized as ‘revolution’, and then will suggest how we should adapt ourselves to the ‘revolution’.

Kwangyun Wohn is Chairperson of NST (National Committee of Science & Technology), which oversees the 25 national research institutes including KIST and ETRI. But more importantly, he is Professor Emeritus and Founding Dean of the GSCT (Graduate School of Culture Technology) at KAIST (Korea Institute of Science and Technology), in Korea. Before he joined at KAIST, he had worked at Harvard University (USA) as Lecturer, and at University of Pennsylvania (USA) as Assistant Professor. Having returned back to his home country, Korea, he had been with Computer Science Department for fifteen years, until he established a new graduate school, Graduate School of Culture Technology (GSCT) in 2005. Major activities and accomplishments include: Director of Virtual Reality Research Center which is a national center of research excellence, Founding President of Korean Society of Human-Computer Interaction, Founding President of Korean Society of Performing Art, and Editorial Board of British Computer Society. While his research interests span a broad range of the intersection between art and science – from theoretical aspects to practicalities – he focuses his research efforts to the application of VR to various cultural artifacts such as stage performances, museum exhibitions and entertainment contents.

Underneath of Industry 4.0 : Hidden Issues and Opportunities for Us


Abstract

As we all know, Industry 4.0 is the hottest word in today’s industry. There are hundreds of attractive, fascinating, awesome and realistic words about Industry 4.0 we are hearing everyday. And I am sure there will be big changes in our daily life and work. As a computer scientist, I and we look at this 4th industry Revolution as tremendous fusioning of knowledge across different domains and technologies, using software. We sure that software will play the most critical role as an enactor. Automotive, transportation, medical clinic, school, communication, and even war will have big revolutionary advances using software. New era of rosy and shining future. However, there have been always risks and dangers underneath of every Industrial Revolutions in history. The every revolution has two sides of the shining future and the accompanied risks. In this seminar, we look at risk side of the 4th Industrial Revolution. We also look at the risk side of the past revolutions. The good news is that all risk eventually evolve into new business opportunities, the hidden opportunities for us.

Some Puzzles and My Research


Abstract

This is a slightly unusual talk designed mainly for students. For about an hour or so, I will present 4-6 puzzles, and encourage the students to solve those puzzles with their friends. The solutions of those puzzles will use some important ideas in computer science, which in particular form the basis of software verification and probabilistic inference. I plan to explain these ideas and their uses in those two important areas of computer science, which happen to be my former and current research fields.


Bio

Hongseok Yang is a full professor at the School of Computing, KAIST, Korea. His research area is programming languages, but he mostly works on problems that arise at the boundaries between programming languages and other areas, such as machine learning, statistics, probability theory and distributed systems. He is currently excited about probabilistic programming, the idea of developing a programming language and its system for writing and using advanced machine learning models effectively. He received his PhD degree in 2001 from the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. Then, he was a postdoc researcher first at KAIST from 2001 until 2003 and next at Seoul National University from 2003 until 2006. After finishing this postdoc training, he took a lectureship (corresponding to assistant professorship) at Queen Mary, University of London, UK for about five years, before he move to the University of Oxford, where he took an associate professorship (2011-2014) and then a full professorship (2014-2017). While he was at Oxford, he also held tutorial fellowship at Worcester College, one of the most beautiful Oxford colleges. He joined KAIST in 2017. He is a co-winner of the 2016 CAV award, received a distinguished paper award in PLDI 2014 and a best paper award in CONCUR 2012, and held an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship from 2007 until 2012.

블록체인의 원리


Abstract

암호화폐 비트코인의 기반기술인 퍼블릭 블록체인은 익명으로 누구나 참여하고 들여다 볼 수 있는 공통 기록을 만드는 기술이다. 아무나 수시로 들락거릴 수 있고 관리 체계가 없음에도 불구하고 일단 기록된 내용은 안전하게 보호된다. 네트워크에 퍼져있는 블록체인이 어떻게 하나로 수렴하고 사람들은 왜 그 기록을 믿는가? 본 강연에서는 블록체인의 원조인 비트코인에서 이런 문제를 어떻게 해결했는지 알아보도록 한다.
