Towards High Definition Air Quality Analysis and Prediction

Summary of Keynote Speech

As the air quality of Korea becomes serious, Korea government has started national strategic project to reduce particulate matters, especially for PM10 and PM2.5. However, current air condition in densely populated cities with many skyscrapers cannot be easily analyzed as the number of national air quality measurement networks is not sufficient to precisely recognize and monitor different spatial characteristics of each district in the cities. Thus, we are starting an IT convergence project to measure micro leveled air quality in a big city with millions population. The major research parts include development and performance evaluation of air quality sensors, combinational air quality measurement by car/static/drone sensor networks, air quality stream big data preparation and processing, and air quality analysis and prediction based on machine learning like deep learning. As the first stage of this project, we are developing TuPiX, which is a big multidimensional array processing platform for providing operational and analytical libraries, and designing a stream big machine data preparation, which performs gathering/time-synchronizing/normalizing/transferring/integrating data. We hope this project continues to develop a tangible service which enables to provide behavioral guideline for citizens and makes spreading effects to other air quality studies. In this talk, I will discover and share various issues on this project.

Brief Introduction of Dr. Hanmin Jung

Hanmin Jung works as the head of the Dept. of Convergence Technology Research Planning and chief researcher at Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information(KISTI), Korea since 2004. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from Pohang University of Science and Technology(POSTECH), Korea in 1992, 1994, and 2003.

Previously, he was senior researcher at Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute(ETRI), Korea, and worked as CTO at DiQuest Inc, Korea. Now, he is also full professor at University of Science & Technology(UST), Korea, visiting professor at National Human Resources Development Institute(NHI), Korea, visiting fellow at University of Southampton, UK, guest professor at Graz University, Austria, guest professor at Paderborn University, Germany, standing director at Korea Contents Association, director at Korean Society for Internet Information, director at Computer Intelligence Society, director at Korea Information Technology Convergence Society, and committee member of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC32. His current research interests include Semantic Web, artificial intelligence, text mining, Big Data, information retrieval, human-computer interaction (HCI), data analytics, natural language processing(NLP), and internet of things(IoT). For the above research areas, over 520 papers and patents have been published and created (confirmed by Google Scholar).
