NIMS has solved Seoul Metro's problem of predicting and detecting mechanical equipment failure in subway stations
NIMS and Seoul Metro succeeded in developing an automatic detection model for major parts and abnormalities applicable to various air conditioners in subway stations through joint research of 'Developing algorithm for mechanical equipment failure in subway stations in Seoul'.
Ventilation facilities at subway stations are important facilities responsible for cooling and pleasant internal air, but the frequency of breakdowns has been steadily increasing lately due to the aging of equipment, and a lot of maintenance costs have been put in place.
In response, Seoul Metro commissioned NIMS in May last year to develop mathematical data analysis methods for efficient control and maintenance of ventilation facilities.
NIMS Researchers conducted a pattern analysis on the condition and conditions of components by utilizing current data collected from air conditioners (transmission fans) in subway ventilation rooms and actual date of replacement of parts.
NIMS Industrial Mathematical Problem Solving Workshop in the First Half of 2019
NIMS held a workshop on solving problems in NIMS industrial mathematics in the first half of 2019, for three days from June 26 to 28
The Industrial Mathematics Problem Solving Workshop is an event designed to bring together mathematical science researchers such as mathematicians, engineers and others to present solutions through mathematical modeling, optimization, and data analysis.
In this workshop, three industry issues commissioned by companies and an institute were presented: △ scoring of oral health results, △ simulating nanofilter performance prediction, △ predicting erosion of low-orbital satellite components of atomic oxygen.
About 150 researchers in related fields, consisting of NIMS researchers, NIMS industrial mathematics experts' group, professors, and graduate students, conducted a process of mathematically defining and discussing the proposed problem and presenting and discussing theoretical methodologies.
NIMS-Busan City, Arrangements for the Promotion of Medical and Healthcare Industry
The NIMS and Busan City signed a business agreement to foster the medical and healthcare industries at the Busan University Hospital's grand auditorium on June 5 and held a joint symposium.
The agreement was arranged to promote mutual cooperation with companies, hospitals and universities through the hosting of NIMS Medical Mathematics Center (scheduled for 2023), which has fostered the field of medical mathematics research as a representative brand in the Echo Delta Smart City Healthcare Cluster in Busan since the end of last year.
Major agreements include △ fostering and providing mutual support in the science and technology fields and medical and healthcare industries, △ promoting joint projects related to smart healthcare clusters, △ exchanging manpower, facilities, equipment and space for the establishment of Medical Mathematics Center, △ analyzing big data, and planning new medical-related projects using AI.
Through this agreement, NIMS is planning to present solutions to problems that occur in the field of businesses and public organizations through mathematical analysis of huge data related to health care, and to provide customized support for industries such as convergence research using mathematical techniques such as deep learning.
NIMS-Seoul Metro signed a business partnership agreement
On December 20, NIMS and the Seoul Metro signed a business partnership agreement to apply the mathematical failure prediction algorithm to the automatic control of subway machines and equipment.
The two agencies agreed to: △ provide analysis and resolution for adding mathematical failure prediction algorithms to the SAMBA(Smart Automatic Mechanical Big data Analysis System), △ provide relevant data to increase the value of industrial math utilization, and to share performance.
Researchers from both organizations plan to develop mathematical data analysis methods that can be used to predict and detect mechanical equipment failures and to explore ways that can be applied to equipment in all subway stations.
The 2nd NIMS Industrial Math Problem Solving Workshop
The 2nd NIMS industrial math problem solving workshop in 2018 was held for three days from December 17 to 19.
This workshop is designed to solve three industry issues commissioned by companies: improvement of similar document detection system using natural language processing algorithms, reliability of oral strength measurement results through deep learning, and analysis of XOR computation and pattern analysis for semiconductor-based storage device data recovery.
More than 150 experts from related fields, including NIMS, industry math experts, professors and graduate school students, participated to solve the industrial problem.
In addition, the workshop was attended by Osamu Saeki, director of the Institute of Mathematics for Industry(IMI) at Kyushu University in Japan. NIMS discussed future cooperation with IMI.
NIMS wins '2018 Korea Education Donation’ prize
NIMS was awarded an educational donation prize at the '2018 Educational Donation Fair' hosted by the Ministry of Education on November 22.
NIMS was highly recognized for having contributed to the popularization of mathematics by conducting out-of-school math lectures for students and the public through the "Mathematics Talk Concert."
NIMS plans to continue its efforts to expand the math culture by operating various programs such as NIMS-IMAGINARY and the Math Experience Class.
Holds math fun day with family
The institute held the maths day event
"School Saturday" with family members on October 13th and 14th.
The event, designed to provide participants with an opportunity to experience and understand the mathematical principles hidden in daily life, including primary and secondary school children, will be held in October with their elementary school children's families and middle school children's families.
[In his welcoming speech on this day, Chung Soon-young said, 'I hope the participants enjoy math and go there today so that they can become math fun, not math fun.']
At the October event for elementary school children's families, around 300 families from all over the country participated in the math pattern painting, String Art, Fluren Soccer Ball, Mengus Funding, and various math programs
The institute plans to run a regular math Saturday event every year.
National Institute of Mathematical Sciences signed a
working cooperation agreement at Chungnam University Hospital
The institute and Chungnam National
University Hospital signed on October 10 (water) a working cooperation
agreement to conduct joint research in the medical convergence diagnostic
technology area in the third floor seminar room of the administrative building
of Chungnam University Hospital.
In the future, the two organizations
will work together to collaborate on joint research and development of advanced
medical technologies, exchange and education of researchers, joint utilization
of facilities, equipment and space, and joint utilization of scientific and
Research team of both organizations is planning to introduce cooperative research areas such as improvement of image quality in low-dose X-ray computer tomographic images and diagnosis and prediction of arteriosclerosis through continuous technology exchange starting from January of this year.
