Pohang City announced on the 6th that research using D.N.A (Data, Network, AI), a high-tech technology, will begin at Pohang POSTECH to predict and prevent industrial accidents in the domestic manufacturing industry.
POSTECH (Pohang University) Artificial Intelligence Research Institute held the opening ceremony of the “Industrial Safety Artificial Intelligence Research Center” at the Central Auditorium of the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute on the 6th. Through this study, it is expected that real-time detection and alerting of accidents at industrial sites will be carried out and real-time action will be possible through the introduction of real-time intelligent image detection solutions. Following the event, the research center held a seminar and also discussed pending issues for research cooperation.
POSTECH Artificial Intelligence Research Institute was selected as the Korea Research Foundation’s “University-focused Research Institute Support Project in Science and Engineering” by the Ministry of Education, Gyeongsangbuk-do and Pohang City in June, receiving 8.2 billion won in research funds for up to nine years. POSTECH Industrial Safety Artificial Intelligence Research Center (Director Seo Young-joo) conducts key research to protect worker safety from harmful environments and industrial accidents in the manufacturing industry based on D.N.A (Data, Network, AI) technology.
