Research subject

Research on AI technologies that predict and discover by analyzing large-scale medical data.

Contents of research

The extension of each person's healthy life expectancy has become an important social problem not only in our country but also in the world. To solve this problem, this course develops new technology based on the latest AI theory for knowledge discovery and prediction problems using various data in the fields of healthcare, medical care, and drug discovery. In particular, it will realize a reliable AI technology with knowledge discovery, performance improvement, explainability, interpretability, and stability through the collectively exhaustive combination of information contained in incomplete, inaccurate and insufficient real-world data.
