    KISTI develops KMAPS SELF Report

    KISTI develops KMAPS SELF Report - Automatic Analysis of Industrial Markets - < Part of KMAPS SELF Report > The Technology Commercialization Center of KISTI has developed and provides KMAPS SELF Report that can be downloaded in the form of report as a result of automatically analyzing the industrial market. SELF stands for Simple, Easy, Logical, and Fully-automated. KMAPS is KISTI's Market Analysis and Prediction System, and it has provided information of industrial market possible to support reasonable decision making of industries, universities, research institutes, and the government, at no cost, based on not only domestic and overseas public statistics data but also its independent industrial market analysis algorithm which has been accumulated for many years by conducting research on those fields. KMAPS SELF Report is compilation of KMAPS-owned technologies. If a user selects the target industry for analysis based on KSIC, the Korean standard industrial classification, KMAPS SELF Report automatically analyze comprehensive information about the industry such as the domestic and/or overseas industrial scale, the anterior-posterior industrial structure, competition condition, major enterprise condition, the average time-series financial structure of the industry, cross-industry comparison, and etc. In addition, it automatically makes and provides the most essential analysis in the form of sentences in accordance with a set of rules. This makes any users have the most important insight of the industry regardless of their analysis ability. KMAPS SELF Report has been periodically updated according to the update of source data and the change of the rule of making sentences. After more than 500 reports of the manufacturing industry was provided on a trial basis on December 2018, more than 3,000 counts of downloading was recorded, and those have been utilized as the material having public confidence by a majority of public organizations and private sectors for the last year. From December of 2019, the reports of agriculture, forestry, and fishery, and service industry will be provided, and they can be downloaded at no cost on the KMAPS website.

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( 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.
