The Fourth Industrial Revolution of Sangmyung University and Development of AI Modules
By Eun-Jae Choi, Reporter
Sangmyung University is taking the lead as a SW-oriented college by establishing new future advanced majors from this year. Sangmyung University founded the Department of Human Intelligence and Information Engineering related to Korea's first artificial intelligence in 2017. In 2021, six new high-tech departments are being promoted to lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution. However, not only the university but also students are showing many capabilities. So the students are working hard to develop according to the ideal that the school wants.
The university held many competitive exhibitions in order that students show their capability and achievement. Students from various departments, including the creativity design competition, received awards. We need to see carefully about results related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution among the awards. Representatively, many things can be learned through the department of 'identifying learner status among non- face-to-face lecture (AI) module systems' by the department of Human Intelligence Information Engineering. On January 21st, 2021, ‘untacticon team’ consisting of Lim jae-young, Ahm yun-ho, Koo dae-hong and Choi-fa-kyung developed an AI module and the team won the grand prize in the AI development category. While continuing to social distance due to Covid-19, many changes are coming and the development of AI modules tailored* to that is of significant value as the way universities operate has also been affected. This system shows the learner state and reaction as an icon of simple facial expression by perceiving face and gesture during non-face-to-face lectures. The intention is that instant interaction is impossible when using non-face-to-face lectures and that learners feel burdened to disclose private spaces like their own rooms. That is why they created the AI program. Through this, many students sympathized with the fact that they made up for the shortcomings of the non-face-to-face lecture and they could see that it was a brilliant idea.
Tailored: Made to fit well
There are six major new departments, including four on the Seoul campus and two on the Cheonan campus. ‘FinTech major’ is an innovative department that was opened in anticipation of changes in financial services and industries through the convergence* of finance and IT. "Big Data Convergence Major" is a major department that can lay the heart and foundation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution through ICT convergence that can gain insights from data using big data analysis technology. "Smart Production Major" will go through a curriculum in the manufacturing and service based on ICT by creating talented people who will lead innovation in manufacturing and service sectors. "Intelligent IOT Convergence Major" is a key based discipline* in the field of intelligent information engineering today, which can encompass* hardware and software, and teaches deep learning, drones, and AR-related knowledge. "AR.VR Media Design Major" plans to develop various content production and planning skills by describing expressions on ultra-realistic future strategies. Lastly, “Green Smart City Department” will train convergent experts in urban regeneration.
Convergence: It can be said to mean integration, convergence, and complexity. It is often used as a term for digital convergence in IT field.
Discipline: an example of the rules of conduct set for maintaining order or institution
Encompass: include many things
As new departments are emerging, and these new departments deal with the deepening part of the IT field, it can be seen that preparation of the basic part of the IT field has become more important than in the past. Even if it is not a related department, it can be seen that the atmosphere of the era of the fourth industry and the future are important in the curriculum, where computing subjects are essential as cultural subjects.
Even before the new departments, students won the Defense Minister's Award at the Korea SW Convergence Hackathon Competition last year, and three teams won the best prize at the Industrial Security Creative Design Competition hosted by the Korea Institute of Industrial Security Research. In addition to developing AI modules, Sangmyung University promotes many things to nurture talented people who can lead the future industry, and the students can also feel great passion for their dreams. Therefore, the ability of new department students to be further subdivided and innovatively opened at Sangmyung University is expected to continue to be positive for the development of our school and students.
Many talents following the Fourth Industrial Revolution are emerging through school competitions. The aforementioned 'identifying listener status among non-face-to-face structure (AI) module systems' can complement the deficiencies and inconveniences that humans feel in the digital age with cutting-edge technology and show that it is that important. It is expected that students who are recognized for their value in line with the changed educational system due to Corona and can implement the development of the fourth Industrial Revolution due to the change will continue to be seen in the future.
