Workshop on Biomedical IC to Be Held on March 26
KAIST will hold a workshop on "biomedical IC for future healthcare system" on March 26 at a lecture room of the School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. The workshop is organized by SEECS and the Korean Institute of Next Generation Computing. At the workshop, a variety of new technologies expected to expedite the development of biomedical systems will be presented. KAIST Prof. Hoi-Jun Yoo will speak on the "body channel communication" using the human body as the signal transmission medium and Dr. Seung-Hwan Kim of Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) on a wearable vital sign monitoring system. Other subjects are CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) fully electronic biosensor for biomolecular detection to be presented by KAIST Prof. Gyu-Hyeong Cho; nerve interface and IC (integrated circuit) system design by KAIST Prof. Yoon-gi Nam; design of neural recording and stimulation IC using time-varying magnetic field by KAIST Prof. Seong-Hwan Cho; low power multi-core digital signal processor for hearing aid by Dong-Wook Kim, senior researcher at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology; and a non-contact cardiac sensor by KAIST Prof. Seung-Chul Hong. With the advent of the ageing society, medical expenses of the elderly people are rapidly increasing. As a way to address the issue, interests are growing in "ubiquitous healthcare," a technology that uses a large number of environmental and patient sensors and actuators to monitor and improve patients’ physical and mental condition. The upcoming workshop is the first academic event on biomedical integrated chips to be held in Korea. The workshop will provide a valuable opportunity for experts in biomedical area to get together and examine the present status of Korean biomedical area and discuss about its future, KAIST officials said.
Final competition of 'UFC' contest
Final competition of ‘UFC’ contest Joint university team D-M2 won first prize The final winner of ‘the 2nd Ubiquitous Fashionable Computer (UFC) contest‘, co-hosted by KAIST and the Korean Society for Next-Generation Computing (KSNGC), was determined. At the final competition of November 17 among 9 qualified teams, the first prize went to D-M2, composed of students from Seokyeong University, Kookmin University, Hongik University, and Sungshin Women’s University. D-M2 manufactured a work utilizing a user’s motion information by applying motion capture technologies to UFC. Particularly, the work gained a high score at the item of the functional perfection by controlling the robot according to a user’s motion. The gold prize went to the smart jacket by Jjik-eo-cha-ki (Kwangwoon University and Duksung Women’s University). The smart jacket is embedded with an intelligent clothes function in terms of checking a user’s status in a real-time basis and delivering it to a doctor, etc. The silver and bronze prizes went to Samsung Software Membership (SSM) and Hanse University, respectively. SSM manufactured a training suit with sensors for grasping the movement of each articulation of a user built-in, and Hanse University developed a system enabling blinders to get a voice service of general documents or books regardless of time and place. The participants composed of university students or graduate students have passed the severe qualifying contest through the examination of written plan and presentation of last April and manufactured creative works that realize the fusion of IT technologies and fashion. At the contest, that fact that all winners of the first, gold, and silver prizes were the members of SSM gained more attention. UFC is a new field that pursuits the enhancement of computer technologies and the creation of fashion simultaneously by fusing IT technologies and fashions. UFC is a one-step advanced field of the existing wearable computer and an important cutting-edge field that leads a computer industry in the era of ubiquitous. “The level of the works exhibited was higher than I’d expected and the cooperation between the departments of Closing Textile and Electronics appeared to be so positive, which made me expect more brilliant future of the next-generation computing industry,” said Hoijoon You, Co-chairman of the contest and professor of the department of Electrical Engineering.
