  • Parallel Computing and Architecture Laboratory
  • Parallel Computing and Architecture Laboratory image The research activities of this laboratory are focused on high-performance computing and algorithms. We are developing new enhanced applications/ algorithms for integer factorization, external sorting, and data mining. Many of them go through real experiments on a 16-node home-brewed Linux parallel computing cluster. Our research area includes fast integer factorization, enhanced associative data mining, e-science architecture, security of web servers, load balancing of web servers, and adaptive cluster management.

  • Computer Systems Laboratory
  • The research activities of this laboratory are directed towards the study of computer systems and computer networks in general, more specifically focusing on the processor and computer system design, internet security, ubiquitous computing, and wireless sensor and RFID networks. We have developed several new algorithms and architectures in the areas of the low power microprocessor design, the secure processor architecture for the defense and recovery against malicious code attacks, novel packet classification and filtering algorithms used for firewalls and routers, and MAC and routing protocols for wireless sensor networks, most of which are patented domestically and internationally.
    Recently we focus on the design of networking protocols for the next-generation mobile wireless networks such as ubiquitous sensor/RFID networks (USN), mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET), and next generation WLAN technologies. We also study the design of application-specific instruction-set processors (ASIPs), and the impact of new technologies on the design of computer systems.

  • Multimedia Information Laboratory
  • The research activities of this laboratory mainly deal with traditional database issues, heterogeneous data integration, multimedia information retrieval, multimedia indexing, and web applications. What we have developed so far includes (i) image retrieval system based on object’s spatial relationships and other features, (ii) humming-based music retrieval system, (iii) automatic video parsing system which utilizes both visual and audio features, (iv) shape-based leaf retrieval system for native aqua-plants in Korea, and (v) video adaptation for mobile devices, to name a few. We, also, have looked into QoS-related issues in multimedia applications and data service architecture in ubiquitous environment.
    Before that, we developed EPG system based on the VoiceXML for the disabled persons, automatic conversion/summarization of normal HTML web pages for mobile devices such as PDA. Currently, we are focusing on automatic transcoding/transmoding scheme in wireless multimedia applications, data service architecture in sensor network environment, algorithms for efficient shaped-based image retrieval, database issues in U-healthcare application, efficient routing algorithm for navigation systems and so on.
