    Dr.Kim Jaesoo interview with Money Today "Agile is the answer to Digital Transf...

    "In the era of digital transformation, speed is vital. Rather than dragging one big project with elaboration, we need to proceed with an 'Agile' approach  that s 10 projects and gets one of them to success." In an interview with Money Today on April 29, Dr.Kim said, "The digital transformation is proceeding faster than expected, and we are going to introduce an agile strategy in all fields such as R&D and administration." The interview was held at the site of the Money Today global conference '2021 Key Platform'  held at the Conrad Hotel in Seoul on the subject of 'Dismantling the Group: Internalization of adaptive execution' on the 28th and 30th of last month. KISTI is a specialized research institute that provides science and technology knowledge information for industry-academia-research researchers based on supercomputing and data analysis technology, and supports corporate technology commercialization. Data is the beginning and end of work.   Dr.Kim who took office on March 23, emphasizes “proper timing” and  “capability"' the most. As it is an institution that deals with data called crude oil in the 4th industrial revolution and digital age, it should not be left behind the trend of the times.   Dr.Kim said, "As the public sector emphasizes accuracy and stability, it is inevitable to be cautious when making certain plans, but considering too much time often lead to bad result“. He also said "The digital age is an era of creativity and adventure, so public institutions shouldn't work the old way."   “KISTI’s customer service would be somewhat insufficient at first, but we will focus more on providing the necessary data in a timely manner and persuade customers.” “Customer could complain about the service, but now we are not afraid of such a thing,” he emphasized.   The change has already begun. Dr.Kim is introducing an agile strategy in all areas of KISTI work, including administration, planning, policy, and research projects. For example, He ed the '3 · 3 · 3 Talk' right after his inauguration. It is a program in which the President and employees communicate face to face on the third and third days of the month at 3:00 pm without a set subject.         Dr.Kim said, "In the past, it would have taken several months for the department in charge to plan the program, obtain approval from the top, and modify the program in order to have time to communicate with the staff." "If only the picture comes out, I'll try to run it," he said.   Dr.Kim suggested 'Changing the world with Data' as KISTI vision. KISTI will celebrates its 60th anniversary next year. He said, "People who have data in the past, people who know where the data is after that, people who use data well now are the best." and “Data should be focused on its utilization,” he said.   He cited the example of the flood prevention project with Incheon Metropolitan City. "In the past, building a levee around the area where there was a lot of flooding was all, but analyzing the meteorological model with big data and artificial intelligence, and opening the structure of the sewage pipe will come up with a new alternative." “I am trying to contribute to creating a happy and joyful world with data-driven solution” he said.   KISTI is also actively fostering data companies. Dr.Kim plans to upgrade ASTI, a window for supporting small and medium-sized business technology commercialization, to DX(Digital Transformation) ASTI(Association of Science and Technology Information). KISTI is focused on strengthening the digital capabilities of companies.   Dr.Kim said, "KISTI will provide technology consulting services so that companies can accumulate and manage data well and support them to develop their innovative growth capabilities." and “"Our goal is to make data unicorn companies appear among the companies we have supported."

      KISTI published a book entitled “A Study on the 3D Printing Industry Revitalization Plan,”  covering 3D printing technology  and material information by experts in machinery, metals, polymers, and ceramics. KISTI said, "In the situation that 3D printing is popular domestically and internationally, but related specialized books are insufficient, the principles of 3D printing, materials, software, application fields, etc. are systematically organized for each technology and material  to provide a clear view of the latest trends.“  Along with the 4th Industrial Revolution, 3D printing, which is called the digital revolution of manufacturing systems, is attracting attention because it is highly likely to bring about a transformation of the traditional business model along with the existing manufacturing method innovation. The global market for 3D printing is expected to reach 26.2 billion dollars (about 29 trillion won) in 2022. Currently, in the global 3D printing industry,  a number of overseas companies such as the United States, Japan, China, and Europe are leading the business based on their technology,  and they are taking the lead in product commercialization by applying 3D printing to the manufacturing process. In the case of the domestic market, it has been used for manufacturing prototypes in the fields of education, aerospace, and automobile parts manufacturing over the past several years, and is being used in the production of ed products, mainly in medical, dental, and consumer goods.  The market growth rate has been somewhat sluggish so far, but the government is actively discovering successful cases to raise the market size to 1 trillion won by 2022.

    KISTI, Developing Fluid Dynamic Simulation SW for SMEs

    KISTI has developed an open source based tool that can be used for fluid dynamics simulation. It is expected to be of great help to SMEs that cannot purchase expensive related software. KISTI M&S Center announced on Mar.1st that it developed “HEMOS Fluid” for this purpose and received GS(Good Software) certificate. HEMOS is an open source based solver(structural analysis software) and a library (a post-processing tool used for structural analysis). It is a entry level CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) software. HEMOS Fluid visualizes simulation and prediction performance results by entering multiple variables. KISTI researchers made it intuitive and easy compared to existing fluid mechanics software. The workflow method is applied to the user interface (UI) so that domestic SMEs can use it a lot, displaying the current work stage and all stages, and diagramming them. HEMOS Fluid can analyze basic steady-state heat flow. Currently, the focus is on versatility and plans to expand its functions every year. It is also a feature that has already received GS certificate. GS certificate is a national certification given to software that has passed the quality test based on ISO international standards. GS ensures objective quality, safety and reliability. This service is being served free of charge on HEMOS Cloud operated by KISTI. HEMOS Cloud is also linked with KISTI supercomputer Nurion. When complex analysis is required, Cloud and Nurion can be used at the same time. In addition to HEMOS Fluid, KISTI also operate HEMOS Structure for structural mechanics, and Hemos HVAC for indoor aerodynamics. In the case of HVAC, visualization tools using virtual reality and augmented reality are also prepared. They have received GS certificate too. “We plan to add functions such as movable material analysis and rotor analysis to HEMOS Fluid,” and “ It is expected to attract more use of SMEs experiencing SW purchasing problems.”  said Kim Myung-il, Director of M&S Center.

    An expert research society was established to study quantum computer security

    An expert research society was established to study quantum computer security that can easily penetrate cryptographic systems used in e-commerce, etc. KISTI announced on Feb. 01 that it will establish a “quantum security research group” in the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology and take the role of a secretary to research quantum and security technologies.  Public-key cryptographic algorithms used for authentication and digital signatures in electronic financial transactions utilize prime factorization and discrete logarithm problems. The password needs solution to be solved and is highly safe cause it will take decades or more even with supercomputers around the world. However, a quantum computer that uses a quantum mechanical state in which 0 and 1 exist at the same time, rather than the binary systemof 0 and 1, can quickly solve the problem, raising security concerns.   On the 15th of last month, the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology established a quantum security research group for academic development between quantum and security technologies. The goal is to study quantum computer security technologies such as quantum distribution keys and quantum resistant encryption, and to present technical standards and directions. Participants of the research group decided to share related technologies and contribute to information exchange between industry-academia and research institutes by holding bilateral and security technology seminars and training.  Jae-cheol Ryu, President of the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology(Professor of Computer Convergence, Chungnam National University) said, "Quantum and security technology area future technology that members of the society are very interested in and and we will also continue to provide support for the development of the quantum cryptography research conference.” Seok Woo-jin, Director of the KISTI Science and Technology Research Network Center, who served as a secretary of the Quantum Security Research Group, said, "Through this research group, we will continue to strive to cooperate with participants and create research results so that quantum security technology can be incorporated into KISTI's national science and technology research network." .
