Eunji Lee, a Master student of Data Science Laboratory (Advisor: Prof. Meeyoung Cha) at our School won the paper award at JKAIA 2021 with the paper ‘Classification of Goods Using Text Descriptions With Sentences Retrieval.’ This work was jointly conducted with Dr. Sundong Kim and an undergraduate intern Sihyun Kim at the Basic Science Institute. This research was collaborated with Korea Customs Service and developed an interpretable model which predicts Harmonized System (HS) code using import/export declarations worldwide. HS code assignment has traditionally been done by customs officers and this code determines the tax tariff on customs goods. The model has an accuracy of 95.5％ in the top-3 suggestions of 265 4-digit HS code and provides previous similar cases and key sentences from HS manual. The team expects this algorithm will assist customs officers in the future. JKAIA is a conference established for technology development and academic exchange in Artificial Intelligence related fields, and this year’s conference is held on Nov 4-5....Read more

Title: Generative Adversarial Perturbations on Attention Space for Better Transferability Abstract: Adversarial attacks have exposed the vulnerability of deep neural networks by fooling them in various computer vision related applications. However, these attacks often suffer from low success rates against unknown black-box models, diminishing their viability in real-world usages. In this paper, we propose a novel method to boost the attack transferability from a white-box surrogate model to black-box target models. We perturb images on their attention space, attacking universal characteristics shared by different models and thus boosting transferability. Different from previous gradient-based methods that easily overfit to most vulnerable features unique to the surrogate model, we apply diversity regularization that guides our attack to explore more diverse features to perturb, decreasing the overfitting issue of the attack. We optimize these objectives using a generator. Extensive experiments on the existing benchmarks show that our attack outperforms the prior transfer-based black-box attacks in terms of transferability, thanks to the attention guidance and diversity regularization. Congratulations on winning the award！...Read more

KAIST-SKT signed an agreement on corona infection ..
This is an article on the recent agreement between KAIST and SKT to prevent the spread of the coronavirus using the PreSPI solution developed by Professor Dong-Soo Han in our school. Source: Korea Economic Daily (https://www.hankyung.com/it/article/2020110871301) KAIST and SK Telecom are commercializing a system that can prevent the spread of COVID-19. Using a smartphone as a black box, it is possible to can check the traveled paths of confirmed cases and whether there was contact with others nearby. On November 8th, KAIST announced that it has signed a business agreement with SK Telecom for the development and commercialization of “PreSPI,” a management solution for preventing the spread of COVID-19. PreSPI is a system that analyzes various signal information from the satellite positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi, wireless LAN, and base stations to determine whether a COVID-19 confirmed person was in contact with his/her neighbors. This solution applies the concept of a black box and stores the user's location information in the smartphone storage for two weeks. As this information is not disclosed outside and is discarded after two weeks, there is no fear of personal privacy exposure. It is also possible to report the risk of infection to nearby people by analyzing the pathways of confirmed cases and self-quarantine cases. Experimental results showed that the system can distinguish the contact distance between a confirmed patient and a nearby person at the level of 2-3m. When a user is confirmed or self-quarantined, the information stored in the smartphone storage device is transmitted to the server. Based on this transmitted information and the information stored in the nearby smartphones, the risk of infection is quantified by taking into account the degree and duration of path overlap. PreSPI users around the confirmed cases can check their risk of infection in a number ranging from 1 to 100 through the smartphone application. SK Telecom and KAIST plan to commercialize the PreSPI solution next year. Professor Dong-Soo, who developed this solution, said, "An epidemiological investigator who needs to track down the traveled paths of confirmed cases can obtain the pathway information using the solution. Choi Nak-hoon, head of SK Telecom's Industrial Data Business Unit, said, "We will present a solution that helps improve public safety and protect privacy from the COVID-19 threat."...Read more

Undergraduate Mina Huh received the URP Grand Prix
Mina Huh, an undergraduate student in KAIST School of Computing, received the Grand Prix at the 3rd presentation hall of the 2020 Winter/Spring Undergraduate Research Participation (URP) Program Workshop held online on Thursday, August 27th. (advisor: Prof. Juho Kim, TA: Ph.D. Candidate Minsuk Chang). URP program is a project supported by the Ministry of Education and the Korea Science and Creativity Foundation to enhance the creative research capabilities of undergraduate students and provide opportunities for self-directed research. Title: Data Modeling Techniques for Supporting Conversational Interaction in Video Tutorials Abstract: When watching video tutorials, viewers often need to pause, rewind, or skip to clarify misunderstandings, and to find missing or anticipated information. The target scene can be referenced in terms of their content, or by their temporal location. Voice interfaces are theoretically useful for controlling video tutorials, especially when the hands are tied by following physical tasks. However, they only support remote-control like commands such as “skip 30 seconds” that are based on temporal references. As a result, viewers must remember a sequence of events, their temporal locations and maintain a mapping between them while following the tutorial. We present RubySlippers, a multimodal system that allows users to navigate video tutorials by conversational description of the content, while keeping the time-driven navigation. The system runs on an NLP pipeline which compares the semantic composition of the user’s utterance and that of the video content to populate navigation target candidates. Our evaluation with 12 participants shows that users are able to navigate quicker with lower mental demand with RubySlippers than existing time-driven voice interfaces. Congratulations on the award....Read more
