Produced Amazon AWS AI Startup Challenge Award and..
Elice, a programming education startup that was established by KAIST's computer science Ph.D. students, was awarded at AWS AI Startup Challenge hosted by Amazon last year and produced some 80 related talent through data science education management. Elice operates an online programming education platform to effectively manage and operate large-scale computerized education in enterprises or educational institutions. Currently, the online coding platform is provided as a major service by introducing an environment that can be coded online without separate IDE, a free-material code evaluation system that applies grading code intended by professors, a system that prevents cheating, and pair-programming. In recognition of its technical skills, it won the AWS AI Startup Challenge last year, a competition that competes with domestic startups that operate leading technologies and services in the field of artificial intelligence deep learning. In addition, it produced more than 80 talents in related fields last year through an artificial intelligence data science program that has been operating since 2017. The program's faculty consists of KAIST and some of the best scholars in the field of artificial intelligence in Korea. Demo Day, which introduces students' projects, features major Korean IT companies such as Kakao, Naver, Samsung Electronics, and LG Electronics, as well as leading startups such as Baemin, K-Mong, and Rainist. Park Jin-woo, an engineer at Samsung Electronics who participated in the program, said, "The results of students were better than I thought, and I think it would be a good opportunity for the company if it was connected to recruitment." A trainee said, "It is meaningful that we can get advice on our career path through interviews with a business executive." The program is responsible for creating cases in which past graduates have employed at major IT companies such as Naver, NCsoft, Kakao, and PUBG, and for filling the needs of big data talent increased during the 4th Industrial Revolution. An Elice source said, "We will strive to develop technologies to create a smoother programming environment, and we will lower entry barriers and develop curriculums to foster the skills needed by technology companies so that anyone can receive coding education in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution." Elice is currently actively used by major Korean universities and companies, including KAIST, SK Telecom, and Samsung, and recently attracted series A investment from Altos Ventures.

The graduated members of the School of Computing d..
Last year, an undergraduate student at KAIST donated his earnings from his developed app to the school. This time, the graduated students donated their earnings from the app they sold. Last December, the School of Computing student, Young-Hoon Park (25 years old), donated 10 million KRW (＄8,200 USD). On September 9th, 2014, Park sold his smartphone application “Seoul Bus” to Kakao Corp. and donated the part of the earnings as a grateful to the school. In addition, Dong-Woo Kim (29 years old) who graduated from the school also donated 10 million KRW to KAIST with a message to use it for his younger students on last December. They are all graduated from the School of Computing at KAIST and worked together for the social commerce company, ‘Rottyful.’ The younger students’ donation news lead to the seniors’ donation; they founded a startup company, ‘Rottyful,’ together. The 8 co-founders of ‘Rottyful’—Kyung Ryul Goo (33), Dong Ju Kim (34), Dong Hee Yoon (34), Joon Ki Lee (34), Cham Sol Lee (33), Hyun Jong Lee (34), Sung Hoon Jang (33), and Joo Young Jung (34)—donated 100 million KRW (＄82,000 USD) total, on last December. ‘Rottyful’ is a social commerce company provides a discount sale information based on the location information. This is the first service provides a real-time nearby discount information from the user’s location information. The service has spotlighted for the investigation of SoftBank Ventures Korea Corp, and has merged to Kakao Corp. in 2011. The alumnus, Sung Hoon Jang said, “I heard the news that my younger students have donated to the school,” and said, “We used to talk about the donation before, but we couldn’t take it to action. We were very proud of them when we heard the news, so we decided to donate as well.” The alumnus, Cham Sol Lee said, “We decided to donate together without any hesitation because we all were interested in the donation before,” and said, “We get a benefit from the school even after the graduation. I hope this donation to be helpful to the school.” After Kakao Corp. merged Rottyful, the startup members of Rottyful have lead Kakao’s growth. Now, most members have retired from the company and preparing for the next startup. The alumnus, Hyun Jong Lee said with smile, “I hope our donation lead to the other student’s donation,” and said, “We are planning on another startup, so we will work hard to donate more.” President Sung-Mo Kang at KAIST said, “The graduated students’ interest and investment is the motivation of KAIST’s growth,” and said, “I greatly appreciate for the alumni to support and encourage our school.” The appreciation plaque to the Rottyful startup members will be held at 1:00 PM, on Monday, February 1st....Read more
