"DropMax," "Adaptive Variable Softmax," "Uncertified-Aware Attachment," a joint study by Professor Yang Eun-Ho and Professor Hwang Seong-ju of the KAIST School of Computing, were published by Neural Information Processing System (NIPS) 2018 (acceptance rate:20.8 ％), the world's best academic institution. The paper was published as follows: [DropMax: Adaptive Variational Softmax] In this paper, we propose techniques to improve the performance of the systeresis by applying Dropout techniques to softmax functions that are originally applied to multi-class identification. At each learning quarter, the whole class' subset is randomly sampled according to the learned Dropout probability and the discrimination is performed. There is meaning that is is a ensemble of different discriminations', and it also has the effect of making more comparisons between classes that are likely to be confused with each other. Deep Bayesian techniques enable the learning and reasoning of this probabilistic neural network. Specifically, it has been experimentally verified in this paper that inducing a Dropout mask, the probability of being a target label for each class, differently for each input instance and correctly deduplicating the values is important for improving performance, thereby enabling more reliable learning and reasoning. [Uncertainty-Aware Attention for Reliable Interpretation and Prediction] Existing in-depth neural networks cannot take into account uncertainty in the in-depth learning process of predictive models, so the learning model has the potential to predict the wrong situation, and the uncertainty present in the data and the model itself has led to false predictions. The "Uncertified-Aware Attachment for Reliable Interprevention and Prescription" paper is a way to overcome existing uncertainty problems. The "Uncertified-Aware Attachment for Reliable Interprevention and Prescription" paper is a way to overcome existing Uncertainty problems. Uncertainty-Aware Attachment Mechanism, which allows input-adaptive organic learning by identifying data and model conditions regarding uncertainty, was presented. This paper has experimentally demonstrated that, with respect to the performance of modern machine learning algorithms, the ability to interpret accurate models with corrected model predictive performance and uncertainty is outstanding through UA framework. [Joint Active Feature Acquisition and Classification with Variable-size Set Encoding] This paper addresses the question of learning policies to obtain effective information at a lower cost in situations where the cost of obtaining the necessary information in the classification (e.g., examination costs) is incurred, such as diagnosing diseases. When diagnosing patients, it is reasonable to perform the necessary tests according to the individual's condition rather than carrying out and diagnosing all the same types of tests. In this paper, it jointly learns about dynamic feature acquisition policies and classification models that determine the required information sequentially based on the information currently in place. To this end, we defined a function for the purpose of considering both the classification performance and the costs necessary to obtain information, and presented a joint learning framework for the feature acquisition policy and classification model using in-depth hardening learning. In addition, experiments using synthetic and medical data have shown that the performance is cost-effective compared to static feature acquisition methods or previous studies....Read more

Intelligent Service Integration (ISI) Laboratory of KAIST School of Computing(Prof. Han Dongsoo) has decided to carry out the international academic project for the development of Global Indoor Positioning System with Global H Company. Global H will support KAIST ＄ 400,000 for the project, which will be accompanied by technology transfer. The ISI Lab, which developed the KAIST Indoor Positioning System (KAILOS) in 2014 and released to the public, has recently developed a crowd sourcing AI technique that automatically labels the location of wireless signals acquired from unspecified number of smartphone users. In this joint international project, KAIST will upgrade location labeling AI technique using crowdsourcing to commercialization level. If the project is successfully performed, H Company is expected to install the system developed by KAIST its products and commercialize it. Professor Han Dongsoo, who will lead the international industry project with H company to be conducted over the next year, said, "It is a pity that the technology developed by KAIST will be commercialized through overseas companies before the domestic companies. The result is that domestic regulations on location services are too strict. " Professor Han Dongsoo said, "It is significant that a global company recognized the technology developed by KAIST and commissioned an industrial project for commercialization. Technology continues to decline and disappear if not developed. We will continue to expand international industry-academia cooperation in the field of indoor location recognition in the future.

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...Read more
