Prof. Juho Kim of the KAIST School of Computing received an Honorable Mention Award at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2018) held in Montreal, Canada, on April 21-26. The CHI conference is the premier conference in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, and only the top 5％ of all papers receive the Honorable Mention Award. The study was a result of international cooperation with Ching Liu, a master's student from Taiwan’s National Tsing Hua University and also an exchange student at KAIST, and Prof. Hao-Chuan Wang from UC Davis. In the paper titled ”ConceptScape: Collaborative Concept Mapping for Video Learning”, they introduce a system that helps learners who watch lecture videos in an online education environment work together to create a concept map. Through the generated concept map learners can more easily explore and understand the contents of the lecture. paper link: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3173961 more: https://kixlab.org/publications/...Read more

The paper, 'Invasive Software Testing: Mutating a Target Program to Diversify Test Exploration for High Test Coverage,' published by Prof. Moonzoo Kim of the KAIST School of Computing won the Distinguished Paper Award at IEEE ICST 2018 (International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation, acceptance rate:25％). They suggest Invasive Software Testing, which is a new technology that goes beyond the existing SW testing paradigm. Invasive Software Testing extracts a variety of information from a number of variants of the target SW program and effectively detects errors in the field that the conventional SW testing cannot analyze. In the paper, they demonstrate experimentally that the SW analysis outcome is significantly improved compared to the latest testing technology through the DeMiner (guiDEed test generation using MutatIoN ExploRation) framework, which implements the Invasive Software Testing paradigm....Read more

Prof. Min H. Kim’s research, compact hyperspectral..
Prof. Min H. Kim’s research project, compact hyperspectral imaging, is in press of EurekAlert Science News and Photonics Media. The traditional hyperspectral imaging technology has wide reach and is being applied in fields such as military combat, astronomy, agriculture, biomedical imaging, and geoscience. Scientists, for instance, rely on hyperspectral imaging to observe and analyze materials for mining and geology, or for various applications in the medical field. However, hyperspectral imaging systems are expensive—ranging from ＄25,000 to ＄100,000—and require complex specialized hardware to operate. Prof. Min H. Kim’s team of computer scientists from KAIST, South Korea, and Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain, has devised a way for low-cost accurate hyperspectral imaging, ridding of expensive equipment and complex coding. This novel, compact single-shot hyperspectral imaging method captures images using a conventional DSLR camera equipped with just an ordinary refractive prism placed in front of the lens. The new method was tested on a variety of natural scenes, and the results, according to the researchers, compared well with current state-of-the-art hyperspectral imaging systems, achieving quality images without compromising accuracy. “These hyperspectral imaging systems are generally built for specific purposes such as aerial remote sensing, or military applications, and as such they are not affordable nor practical for ordinary users,” said Min H. Kim, associate professor of computer science at KAIST and a lead author of the study. “Our system requires no advanced skills, and we are able to obtain hyperspectral images at virtually full resolution while making hyperspectral imaging practical.” Prof. Kim’s collaborators include Diego Gutierrez, associate professor at Universidad de Zaragoza; Seung-Hwan Baek, computer science PhD student at KAIST; and Incheol Kim, MS student at KAIST in Min H. Kim’s lab. The team presented their new method at SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 and also published it in the top computer graphics journal, ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG). This annual conference and exhibition showcases the world’s leading professionals, academics and creative minds at the forefront of computer graphics and interactive techniques.
