    The 1st Anniversary of KISTI's Supercomputer NURION

    The 1st Anniversary of KISTI's Supercomputer NURION - NURION helps to create the world class research outcomes leading the future. KISTI has held 'Supercom Day' at KISTI Daejeon main research complex on December 3rd, 2019. KISTI had the opening ceremony of NURION, the 5th supercomputer of KISTI, in November, 2018, and has been operating from December in that year. To commemorate its 1st anniversary of the supercomputing service, NURION's current conditions of differentiated service and research outcomes have been introduced at the ceremony. NURION has accomplished more than one and a half million calculations of 140 institutions and about 2 thousand researchers for the period of one year. This shows us that NURION has been utilized properly by Korean researchers and has helped them achieve some excellent results to lead the future. KISTI has provided NURION's supercomputing resources without compensation for research projects selected from the R&D innovation-supporting program based on HPC. For example, NURION has helped 141 research projects such as the research of deep-sea robot behavior in the extreme environment of the ocean floor and the research of carrier of liquid organic hydrogen for saving and transfer of large scale of hydrogen. KISTI has been also cooperating to solve world-class gigantic research questions. By providing 2,500 nodes of its supercomputer, KISTI has supported one of the largest scale in the world of cosmological simulation and the research to find inconsistency of the Standard Model which is the basis of Physics. In addition, NURION also leads precision medicine of the future by supporting the project of the next generation genome-wide sequencing of about 1 Petabyte(PB) big data. Furthermore, KISTI already developed high-performance massive parallel processing technology which is capable of utilizing more than 100 thousand cores and it has helped KISTI support researchers to conduct gigantic researches efficiently.

    KISTI develops a new model for evaluation of the national technology level based on percentile distribution - Overcoming of the limitations of the existing indicator that average citation value is centered in evaluation of level - "The Macroscopic Change of the Global Science & Technology Research Level through Academic Dissertation Data" KISTI Data Insight Issue 7 It seems that understanding a nation's exact level of science and technology in the process of setting plans and goals of the national science and technology cannot be overemphasized enough. For past decades, various countries of the world has done a variety of work to evaluate one nation's science and technology level based on citation counts by using dissertation data. In spite of it, there have been a lot of controversies and problem raising in the existing evaluation way of their level since that way has not considered enough the difference among academic fields, the size variance among nations, and the entire global level distribution, which are necessary to evaluate superiority of the nations' level. In order to make this situation better, the future technology analysis center of KISTI developed a percentile-based mechanic that makes it possible to understand the types and changes of the entire level distribution, and has announced a new result of level analysis. KISTI selected 8 fields among the OECD science classification and analyzed the percentile distribution of influence over the citation of dissertations of 6 countries such as Korea, U.S., U.K., Germany, Japan, and China. In consequence, the level distribution of the dissertations of each country has a wide variety of types, and has been changing continuously by period. This research result appears in the issue 7 of KISTI Data Insight(http://mirian.kisti.re.kr/insight/insight.jsp). The KISTI Data Insight is the big-data-based analysis channel of science & technology industries. It is written in Korean language.

    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.
