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.
13th Anniversary Ceremony of National Institute of
The institute held its 13th
anniversary ceremony on September 28 (Friday) at 13 a.m. in the Grand Hall of
the Mathematical Institute to review past achievements and make a commitment to
a new leap forward.
In his speech, Director Jung Sun-young stressed the need to commercialize various brands, including medical mathematics, based on industrial mathematics, and urged employees to strive to have a culture of ownership and mutual respect.
Following the celebration, a congratulatory speech and cake cutting ceremony was held for representatives of labor unions and labor councils.
'NIMS Campire Team' hosted by Samsung Electronics
Samsung AI Challenge'
Participants in the event were
evaluated for their understanding of the data, accuracy of the model,
creativity and scalability of the model, after creating a 'damaged traffic
accident data recovery model' from existing data analysis.
The NIMS Campfire team presented a model of traffic accident data prediction using the Gradient Tree Boosting algorithm and won third place in the Challenge category.
※ Gradient Tree Boosting: To create a precise final
prediction model by continuously adding a simple prediction model using a tree
The 3rd Annual Research and Cooperation Meeting of
Chungnam University Hospital
The research institute and Chungnam
National University Hospital are conducting joint research on medical
The third research and cooperation meeting was held on September 6 at the University of Chungnam Medical Center in Seoul to announce an interim announcement on the ongoing cooperation project and exchange of technologies in the new research and cooperation field.
At the event, which was held by Jeong Soon-young and Lee Jeung-hoon, a researcher at Chungnam National University Hospital, the institute developed a machine learning model that can predict the occurrence and outcome of arteriosclerosis, and post-
The research institute and hospitals will continue to pursue research cooperation to revitalize research in medical mathematics, a new field of industrial mathematics.
