The KI for Artificial Intelligence (KIAI) started as the 6th KI on May 16th, 2017.
Artificial intelligence is regarded as the most-important enabling technology for the 4th Industrial Revolution. The establishment of KIAI, with 66 faculty members from 18 Departments/Schools will help KAIST to continue its leading role in this important multi-disciplinary technology....read more

A new optogenetic method has been developed to induce rapid and robust protein clustering.
BAF53b, an epigenetic factor involved in nucleosome remodeling, is induced in the lateral amygdala neurons after fear learning, and it regulates long-term memory consolidation.
We developed 300 Mbps low-power/low-complexity/broadband small base station technology supporting 4x4 MIMO by proposing a new antenna structure and a new RF structure based on LTE-A.
Professor Naehyuck Chang (KAIST KI) introduced a high-performance electric racing car. This racing car was realized by electric vehicle conversion in the first attempt in Korea.
This paper presents a pragmatic method to create mushroom-like microstructures and robust super-omniphobic surfaces by using localized photofluidization of azopolymers.
The demand for wearable strain gauges that can detect dynamic human motions is growing in the area of healthcare technology. However, the realization of efficient sensing materials for the effective detection of human motions in daily life is technically challenging due to the absence of optimally designed electrodes. Here, we propose a novel concept to overcome the intrinsic limits of conventional strain sensors based on planar electrodes by developing highly periodic and three-dimensional (3D) bicontinuous nanoporous electrodes. The 3D structural platform allows the fabrication of a strain sensor with robust properties, such as a gauge factor of up to 134 at a tensile strain of 40%, a widened detection range of up to 160%, and a cyclic property of over 1000 cycles. Collectively, this study provides new design opportunities for a highly efficient sensing system that finely captures human motions, including phonations and joint movements.
The phase transition of topological defects formed by liquid crystal (LC) materials was directly observed for the first time.
Combining holography with deep learning enables rapid optical screening of anthrax spores as well as other pathogens.
Delivery of synthetic receptors to tumor cell membranes using both synthetic and biological nanoparticles led to effective treatment of cancer.
We have developed a new user authentication method based on eye scanpaths on multiple images. Even for the same images eye scanpaths vary from person to person and are reflexive without any intentional control for absolutely safe authentication. It may be regarded as an interview approach for user authentication, but questions and answers are made on the basis of visual images and eye scanpaths, respectively.
This research aims to analyze refinery CO2 emission sources and to suggest the best CO2 management strategy for it by taking a systematic approach.
Prof. H.K. Lee’s team is expecting to commercialize CCU technology for production of construction materials.
The rise of atmospheric CO2 concentration has resulted in serious environmental problems. Dry reforming of methane (DRM) has gained tremendous attention because carbon dioxide can be converted into more useful chemicals with methane, which is also one of the most important greenhouse gases. In DRM research, noble metal catalysts have been extensively studied, but their high cost is a major obstacle. Nickel, which is considered to be promising due to its high activity but affordable price, has shown severe coke formation leading to rapid deactivation of catalysts so far. However, our nickel catalysts show high activity with exceptional durability for 600 hours of reaction. We believe these catalysts can contribute to environment and industries.
