Data & Knowledge Engineering Laboratory


Welcome to the Data & Knowledge Engineering (DKE Lab) in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Kyungpook National University! The major mission of our lab is to solve real problems involving heavy data processing engaged in diverse areas. We pursue a high-quality data-centric research that makes ourselves and the world happier. We will provide full support for your passion and commitment to achieve our mission!

경북대학교 데이터 및 지식 공학 연구실 (Data & Knowledge Engineering Lab.) 에서는 최신 하드웨어 및 머신 러닝을 활용한 데이터 관리 및 응용 기술에 대한 다채로운 연구를 수행하고 있습니다.

    • GPGPU 기반의 다양한 데이터 시스템들의 병목 현상 탐색
    • 머신 (혹은 딥) 러닝 기반의 데이터-주도형 서비스 기술
    • 대용량 한글 문서에 대한 효율적인 검색 기술
    • 프라이빗 의료 데이터 클라우드 기술 등
    • 지역 기업과 산학 협력 과제 수행


  • 본 연구실에서 함께 연구하고 생활할 성실하고 열정적인 학생 (학부연구생(4학년), 석사과정, 박사과정)들을 모집하고 있습니다. 이메일 (yksuh at knu dot ac dot kr)로 연락 혹은 직접 연구실로 방문해 주시기 바랍니다.
