Pohang City, Gyeongsangbuk-do announced that it held an opening ceremony for the ‘Industrial Safety Artificial Intelligence Research Center’ at the POSTECH Artificial Intelligence Research Center on the afternoon of the 6th.

The opening ceremony began with a commemorative address by Seo Young-joo, president of POSTECH AI Research Institute, followed by the introduction of the Industrial Safety AI Research Center, the unveiling ceremony of the signboard, and a commemorative photo.

Following the event, the research center held a seminar to discuss pending issues for research cooperation.

POSTECH Artificial Intelligence Research Institute was selected for the ‘Scientific Engineering Field University Research Center Support Project’ by the Ministry of Education (National Research Foundation of Korea) in June, and received research funds of KRW 8.2 billion for up to 9 years from the Ministry of Education, North Gyeongsang Province, and Pohang City to develop systems and advanced technology. We are in the process of developing talent.

POSTECH Industrial Safety Artificial Intelligence Research Center (Director Seo Young-joo) conducts core research to protect the safety of workers from harmful environments and industrial accidents occurring in the manufacturing industry based on advanced DNA (Data, Network, AI) technology in the future.

Over the next nine years, the center will develop a ‘DNA-based manufacturing environment harmful gas safety diagnosis system’, an AIoT-based worker safety management system, and an integrated support platform for manufacturing AI safety management using digital twins. It plans to develop into a safety-specialized research center that studies worker safety.

In order to predict and prevent industrial accidents that occur in the domestic manufacturing industry, when research using DNA (Data, Network, AI), a cutting-edge technology, begins in earnest, the city introduces a real-time intelligent image detection solution to detect and prevent accidents in the industrial field in real time. It is hoped that warnings and actions will be possible.

Pohang Mayor Lee Kang-deok said, “By demonstrating the technology developed for local small and medium-sized manufacturing companies and applying it to actual manufacturing plants, a safer industrial site will be created through accurate DNA-based accident safety diagnosis.” We will systematically respond to the era of great digital transformation by nurturing AI as a strategic industry and expanding its application to various industries.”

Seo Young-joo, head of the AI ​​Research Institute, said, “The competitiveness of the domestic manufacturing industry is ranked 3rd in the world, but it is unfortunate that the industrial accident mortality rate is also ranked 5th in the world. We will build a safer manufacturing environment in Korea through fostering.”

Meanwhile, the POSTECH Artificial Intelligence Research Institute is an artificial intelligence research institute established in 1991. Professors and full-time researchers boasting the highest level in the field of artificial intelligence are developing cutting-edge artificial intelligence technologies such as developing artificial intelligence technologies, cultivating specialized human resources tailored to companies, and supporting companies. are leading
