Provided by Naver.

Naver announced on the 15th that it had held the ‘HUST X NAVER AI NOW, Research & Development Conference’ with Vietnam’s top engineering university, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), to share the intermediate results of various industry-university cooperation projects in progress.

Naver is developing a variety of industry-academic programs such as global training, local special lectures, internships and scholarships, including industry-academic programs with HUST, which is the first local partner of the ‘global AI R&D belt’ in Vietnam. This conference is also the first conference held to share interim results since the two sides opened the joint AI center in March of this year.

Through the conference, Naver and HUST shared the intermediate results of various industry-university projects currently in progress. In particular, the mid-term presentation of industry-university cooperation with HUST also showed meaningful results. This is because the thesis written in the process of carrying out the task of extracting synonyms from large web documents was selected for the EMNLP 2021 (Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing), which is evaluated as the world’s most prestigious conference in the field of natural language processing. The content of the paper is that users’ opinions expressed in tweets and comments can be more accurately understood through a new method that improves weakly supervised learning.

In addition, the two companies include ▲ Scene Understanding for Autonomous Driving ▲ Intent Classification and Slot Tagging Dataset Construction and Conversational Model Development ▲ Vietnam OCR Data Construction (OCR) data construction and research) ▲Hand Pose Estimation dataset preparation and deep-learning modeling for human hand posture recognition. In addition, Senior Leader Ha Jung-woo and Senior Leader Nak-ho Seong also announced the R&D direction of Naver Clova AI and specific examples of applying HyperClova technology.

In the panel discussion that followed, plans and efforts to secure and nurture AI talents to strengthen Naver’s global competitiveness were also mentioned. Ha Jung-woo, Naver Clova AI LAB lead leader, said, “In the process of creating synergy between Naver and HUST researchers, we were able to confirm the meaningful results of the thesis being accepted at a world-renowned academic conference.” “Through stronger cooperation with HUST, We will do our best to create a virtuous cycle structure that discovers and nurtures talent in the industry.”

Huynh Dang Chinh HUST Vice-Chancellor said, “This ‘AI NOW’ conference, co-hosted with Naver, is a very important event to show the university’s goal of developing Vietnam’s IT field, including AI technology. We will continue to carry out various activities to foster research, industry, exchanges between researchers, and academic promotion.”

On the other hand, Naver held the second conference with HUST following the first industry-university cooperation conference held with PTIT University of Friendship and Communication Technology on the 1st, and is further solidifying the global AI research belt with excellent technical talents in Vietnam.
