Dr. Seung-Jong Choi (LG Electronics)
AI Chip Solutions and the Product Innovation
IT industry has been making great efforts to provide the innovation. Recently, the transition to the era of AI (artificial intelligence) is rapidly going on, and AI technology is being applied to the virtually most of services and products. The big wave behind these activities would be to meet demands for the increasing expectation of user experiences through the customer-tailored evolution.
Global top players such as Google and Amazon provide the speech recognition solutions to maintain and widen their platforms. Even more sophisticated image recognition and context understanding are also emerging to provide more advanced user experiences. On the other hand, AI technology has a great potential to innovate the fundamental performances of products. For example, the picture and sound quality of TV can be revolutionized with AI, and the energy efficiency of home appliance products can be improved with AI.
LG has been successfully launching various market-leading products such as OLED TV, and home appliances. As a system design/manufacturing company, LG has strong advantages for making innovative customer-tailored products with AI utilizing huge amount of accumulated data on products so far. This talk introduces LG AI R&D activities and achievements mainly focusing on the AI chip solution, which plays a crucial role for products to be intelligent.
Dr. Seung-Jong Choi has been at LG Electronics since 1989, and is presently a Senior Research Fellow. His main research activities has been related with TV system including HDTV, 3DTV, smart TV and UHD TV. He has been leading multiple generation of TV SoC solutions and successfully applied them to the LG TV products contributing LG to be the global top player in TV industry. Currently, he is the task leader to strengthen OLED TV SoC and to exploit the next-generation computing solutions.
Dr. Choi received the B.S. degree from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, in 1987, the M.S. degree from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Taejon, Korea, in 1989, and Ph.D. degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, in 1996, all in electrical engineering. His doctoral research topic was on video compression and video signal processing.
Dr. Joel Kim (Facebook, Inc.)
Future of AR/VR: Facebook’s View
In this presentation, along with a brief introduction on Facebooks’ activities in AR/VR area, the current technologies for VR devices and AR glasses will be discussed, focusing on the role of the cellular/wireless connectivity from the perspective of Facebook’s vision to merge the physical and digital worlds, blending what’s real with what’s possible, resulting in the next mainstream, must-have, wearable consumer technology. Details on the current technical challenges, progress and the direction will also be discussed.
Joel Kim was born in South Korea in 1969. He received the B.S., M.S.E.E, and Ph.D.in EE degrees from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea in 1992, 1994, and 1998, respectively. He also served as a research scholar at the graduate school of Stanford University for future wireless communication researches in 2010 to 2012.
He has worked in the mobile industry for over 20 years, focusing on wireless modem chipset development, mobile consumer devices development, and international standards. He is currently working at Facebook as a senior member of wireless ecosystems for AR/VR device development, mostly focusing on the technical enablement of the services envisioned for AR/VR.
