프로필

Byoung-Tak Zhang is POSCO Chair Professor of Computer Science, Cognitive Science, and Brain Science at Seoul National University (SNU) and directs the Cognitive Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Center (CRAIC). He currently serves as President of the Korean Society for Cognitive Science (KSCS) and Chairman of the National Association of Cognitive Science Industries (NACSI) and had served as President of the KIISE Society for Artificial Intelligence (2010-2013). He received his Ph.D. in computer science from University of Bonn, Germany, in 1992, and his B.S. and M.S. in computer science and engineering from Seoul National University in 1986 and 1988, respectively.

His research questions center around: i) How does the brain build a model of the world to act so fast, flexibly, and robustly, and ii) How we can build an intelligent machine that can see, talk, reason, act, and learn like a brain in a real world. He has been investigating brain-inspired cognitive learning architectures and algorithms for artificial intelligence and cognitive science. He has developed the deep hypernetwork models of cognitive learning and memory and applied them to language, music, video, and robot learning. Recently, his AUPAIR robot team won the 2017 RoboCup@Home (Social Standard Platform League) in which humanoid robots should complete missions in real-world-like environments such as home, cocktail bar, and restaurants.

Before joining Seoul National University in 1997, he has worked as Research Fellow at the German National Research Center for Information Technology (GMD, now Fraunhofer Institutes) in Sankt Augustin/Bonn for 1992-1995.

He has been Visiting Professor at MIT CSAIL and Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department, Cambridge, MA for 2003-2004, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) for 2007-2008, BMBF Excellence Centers of Cognitive Technical Systems (CoTeSys, Munich) and Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC, Bielefeld) for the Winter of 2010-2011, and Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) for 2013-2014. 

He serves as Associate Editor of Journal of Cognitive Science, Applied Intelligence, BioSystems, and the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation (1997-2010). 

He has received numerous awards and honors, including Red Stripes Order of Service Merit, INAK Award, Minister of Science and Technology Award, Okawa Research Grant Award, Distinguished Service Award from the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, and Academic Excellence Award from the Korea Information Science Society.
