Research goal

  • To contribute to the advancement of human life by studying about how knowledge can be innovatively utilized in solving problems and making decisions

Research area

We actively pursue the following three research areas:
  • Experiential Knowledge Acquisition & Utilization
  • Big-data Analytics
  • User-centered Personalized Service





Some major projects we have conducted are as follows:



Experiential Knowledge Platform


Building a knowledge management platform that digitalizes and manages experiential knowledge of field experts, in order to support mission-critical decision making
  • Proposing an inference algorithm that automatically creates decision tree based on the procedural knowledge acquired from field experts and accumulated cases
  • Providing evidence for the inference by discovering relevant descriptive knowledge extracted from a large set of documents


Social Taste Recommendation


Developing a core component of a personalized social taste recommendation platform out of the exploding amount of online/SNS contents 
  • Developing a knowledge structure representation of social contents
  • Analyzing social taste to construct a user profile
  • Developing a recommendation engine based on the social contents’ knowledge structure and users’ individual social taste


Knowledge Structure based E-book Recommendation 


Building an E-book recommender system using knowledge structure (KS) of E-book contents to support an intelligent digital book learning service
  • Designing an extended KS considering E-book contents and curriculum metadata
  • Developing a prototype for E-book and sub-contents recommendation based on the extended KS
