IBS Winter School on AI-Boosted Basic Science 2022

IBS Winter School on AI-Boosted Basic Science 

Basic science research has been a pillar in improving human life quality and finding solutions to various global challenges. In finding solutions to these challenges, artificial intelligence (AI) has been a powerful tool that, when applied to basic science research, can provide models that help us improve our current understanding of nature and ourselves as human beings. At this event, hosted by the IBS Data Science Group, we invite a set of distinguished speakers performing crucial cross-disciplinary research involving climate, drug discovery, and neuroscience. The invited speakers will discuss how integrating AI and basic science can bring long-term societal benefits.

Date: December 13, 2022 (Tuesday) 10:00 - 15:00
Place: IBS B109 conference room, Daejeon

IBS Data Science Group at the Center for Mathematical and Computational Sciences, Institute for Basic Science focuses on problems in computational social science, which can have significant impacts on future societies.

Innovative analyses of data reveal interesting patterns that could provide keys to addressing social challenges. Data Science Group at the Pioneer Research Center for Mathematical and Computational Sciences, IBS, is pursuing research to analyze data from disparate sources such as the Internet, social networks, and biological signals to find meaningful insights for tackling various social problems. The group is currently working on improving the quality of life by developing algorithms that can characterize fake news, detect customs fraud, as well as that yield human behavior modeling to improve sleep disorders. Using high-resolution satellite imagery, the group is also developing artificial intelligence methods that can predict population dynamics and poverty mapping. We are dedicated to using data science and artificial intelligence to solving global societal problems.

[데이터 과학으로 사회문제 해결]
데이터 안에 숨어있는 패턴을 면밀히 파악하고 분석하면 사회 난제 해결의 실마리를 찾아낼 수 있습니다. 수리 및 계산과학 연구단 데이터 사이언스 그룹은 인터넷, 사회연결망, 생체신호 등 다양한 데이터를 분석하고 모델링 및 딥러닝 학습을 통해 유의미한 결과를 찾아내는 연구를 수행합니다. 가짜뉴스를 탐지하고, 세관 사기를 적발할 수 있는 알고리즘을 개발하여 사회 문제를 해결하는 한편, 수면 패턴 데이터를 분석해 수면 장애를 개선할 수 있는 인간행동 모델링을 제시해 삶의 질을 향상하기 위한 연구도 진행됩니다. 건물과 도로를 찍은 인공위성 영상을 토대로 개발도상국의 인구밀도, 도시 스프롤 현상, 경제 및 빈곤 예측을 위한 인공지능 방법론을 개발하여 전 지구적 사회문제 해결에 기여하고자 합니다.
