Among the achievements by UNIST researchers, the number of publications on artificial intelligence (AI) that have been published in internationally recognized conferences in 2021 has increased significantly. According to the statistics, it has more than doubled since the opening of UNIST AI Graduate School.
About 20 papers have been accepted at top-notch academic conferences, including NeurlPS, ICML, ICLR, CVRP, ICCV, ICRA (See the list below). There has been significant growth, compared to 2018 (5 papers) and 2019 (9 papers) before the opening of UNIST Graduate School.
These conferences bring together leading experts in the field of AI to share and discuss their research findings and latest ideas. Papers accepted to these conferences are highly valued both academically and industrially. Therefore, global companies, such as Google, Amazon, and Samsung Electronics consider these conferences as a place to promote R&D performance in the field of AI and recruit talents.
In 2021, researchers at UNIST have published a number of AI-related papers in leading international journals, which includes IEEE TPAMI, Nature Communications, and Information Sciences. These achievements are the result of UNIST’s steady investment in AI research and hiring AI talents.
Centering on UNIST AI Graduate School, UNIST will continually deliver excellent results through active cooperation with other departments, and via the expansion of industrial-academic cooperation with domestic and foreign research institutes. Indeed, the research achievements, produced this year, were based on research cooperation among UNIST’s Graduate School of AI, the Department of Industrial Engineering, the Department of Electrical Engineering, and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. This also includes cooperation among KAIST, Seoul National University, Naver Inc., Cornell University, Brown University, University of Bath, and Tsinghwa University.
