    KISTI transfers fundamental technology of AI security control

    KISTI transfers fundamental technology of AI security control KISTI has concluded an agreement with WISEnut, an AI enterprise, on technology transfer of AI automation platform and AI security control model. AI automation platform has been developed in order to process all the stages without a break according to users' needs from collecting and processing of enormous source data to developing and building of AI model. This platform is versatile and expandable so it is capable of being applied in all the areas where data exist. In addition, in the case of extraction of AI's input data, which determines performance of AI model, the AI automation platform has superior competence on the field like cyber-attack where data that have atypical structures and dynamic behaviors should be learned as it can infinitely define and extract correlation features that is possible to represent space and time information, which is different from the existing methods which use basic features of data . This technology transfer also includes AI model for security control which KISTI developed by itself. As this model has learned the actual security log that the S&T cyber security center has had, it can automatically classify actual cyber-attack and normal behavior with more than 99.9% accuracy.

    KISTI and GIST jointly organizes workshop for AI & Computing Infrastructure

    KISTI and GIST jointly organizes workshop for AI & Computing Infrastructure The division of the national supercomputing of KISTI and the Institute for Artificial Intelligence of GIST, Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, has jointly organized workshop for building and operating of infrastructure for high performance AI computing, which is appropriate and preferred for the domestic environment of Korea, October 25th, 2019. Fourteen computing researchers and experts from the two organizations have discussed the orientation of building and operating preferred AI computing infrastructure; the platform for operating and utilizing AI computing infrastructure efficiently; AI computing chips for the next generation; and HW and SW for AI computing. High performance computers are advised to be operated optimally by inputting high quality and enormous data into the computers in order to flexibly support AI involved in almost all the area of human beings. According to openAI data, the necessary learning time of leading researches of AI technology, which is the amount of calculation, almost doubles every 3 and a half months. This phenomenon has driven the international research communities to have bigger AI computing engines and data repositories competitively. Therefore, the nationwide AI computing infrastructures have been built in the AI-specialized or HPC/AI -combined manner, worldwidely such as in Japan, Taiwan, USA, Europe, and China. In Korea, the project to build an AI cloud data center as part of the Gwangju AI industry complex has been in preparation for supporting GPU-based high performance computing which is specialized in Korea's domestic AI environment in addition to support of the KISTI's supercomputer NURION and GPU-based system, Neuron.
