Artificial Intelligence Research Institute carries out research on intelligence to better understand the computation selves and to create spaces of practical applications. We are interested in the following topics:
Automatic Choreography Generation
Dancing along music is a highly cognitive human behavior. We are interested in creating dancing machines that learn dancing from motion and music pairs. Figuring out what dancing is to human in the first place is very crucial before we develop any machine learning technologies and this teaches us more about natural intelligence. This research initiative has won the 2019 AWS Machine Learning Research Awards.
Anomaly Detection
We are interested in anomaly detection on time-series data such as vibrations that come from for example city trains and factory machines. We hear much demand of anomaly detection applications from the industrial sector. However, we normally miss anomaly data since it’s very difficult to obtain which makes the problem more interesting.
AI and Art
We attempt creating artworks using AI. We develop robot performances and exhibitions that use technology. Interactive and intelligent works of art must be a new frontier of both technology and art.
Novel Robots and Embodied Computation
Body structure and the composition of material affect the intelligence of a robot. Thus, body must be a crucial element of a robotic agent. The apps running only in any computer cannot claim the role of body for intelligence. However, when intelligence possess body like robots, they write different story. We seek clever use of body for intelligence robots. We agree that the statement: “function follows form” and claim that intelligent robots are intelligent sculptures.
Taehee Kim
Professor at Youngsan University,
Head in project
Prof. Taehee Kim studied Artificial Intelligence in 90's at the Edinburgh University, U.K. to earn his Ph.D. He worked as a senior researcher at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information late 90's before he joined Youngsan University in 1999, now working as one of faculty members of the School of Culture & Content. He is interested in automatic motion generation for robots. He and his members are working on automatic dance motion generation according to given music. Prof. Kim is also an active digital media artist.
