The Ministry of Science and ICT and Korea Radio Promotion Association have selected the AI2S lab (led by Prof. Jihoon Ryoo) as one of the national XR-labs. XR stands for mixed reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality. This recognition is a testament to the lab's excellence in the field of XR.
The lab's META-Factory project is a noteworthy initiative that aims to automate large factories using XR techniques. This is an innovative approach that can revolutionize the manufacturing industry by enhancing productivity and efficiency.
To support this project, the team has secured funds to help graduate students grow as XR scientists. The lab had already initiated this effort in 2020 by providing support to over 30 SUNY Korea students, including both undergraduate and graduate students. This is a great opportunity for aspiring XR scientists to gain hands-on experience and contribute to a cutting-edge research project.
Overall, AI2S lab's selection as a national XR-lab and the META-Factory project's funding are significant achievements that highlight the lab's leadership in the field of XR. We look forward to seeing the results of this project and the impact it will have on the manufacturing industry.
