Prof. Kang and colleagues win major grant from IITP
Prof. Byungkon Kang is part of a team that has won a major grant from the Institute for Information & Communication Technology Promotion (IITP).
The project (IITP grant RS-2023-00259678) is a joint effort by Inha University, Incheon National University, and SUNY Korea. It is intended to support graduate students including employees at local industries as part-time graduate students. Such part-time students will be eligible for up to 90% tuition support by this project. Regular graduate students can also be supported as RAs. The annual budget allocated to SUNY Korea amounts to 100M KRW (about 75K USD).
The theme of SUNY Korea's part is designing safety and convenience features of smart vehicles. Such features include, but are not limited to, the following scenarios: Hazardous situation detection, safety-aware path planning, and designing cost-effective on-board recognition systems. We expect this project to be a multi-disciplinary research involving many sub-areas of AI (such as computer vision, decision making, natural language understanding, etc.) and possibly other engineering fields (such as mechanical and electrical engineering).
