Title of the Project
FAST (Fast, Advanced, Secure and Transaction) Artificial Intelligence Convergence
Although artificial technologies (AI) have significantly advanced at a rapid speed, they have also raised a range of issues including reliability, performance and security. To cope with these emerging issues, we need innovative research and education in AI in the FAST (Fast, Advanced, Secure and Transaction) way.
Our vision is to lead advanced core technologies in artificial intelligence and its applications worldwide, and foster creative and cooperative personnel both in academia as well as in industry.
Our goals can be summarized in four aspects: education, research, globalization and contribution to our society. In the educational aspect, we aim to build practical problem-based AI curriculums to foster cooperative experts. In the research aspect, we aim to advance innovative core technologies in AI, leading the market. In the globalization aspect, we try to build worldwide infrastructure for conducting joint research projects and opening joint degree programs with the advanced groups. Last, we will be committed to contribute to our society by resolving societal issues based on AI technologies.
