Professor Min Kyung-shik of Kookmin University’s School of Electrical Engineering was named recipient of the Korea-Italy collaboration project sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) and the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). The Korea-Italy collaboration project strives to lay the foundation for further cooperation between the two nations.

The state-sponsored project is titled “Memristor-based Hybrid Cellular System for Neural Applications,” and will receive a research grant of 89,965,000 won over the span of 36 months, from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2016.

The project will open doors for joint international research between Kookmin University and Italy’s Politecnico di Torino. Professor Min has accumulated considerable knowledge and expertise on circuit modeling and emulation circuit design through his experience at the memory development department in Hynix Semiconductor as well as his research on various memory circuits at the university, ranging from SRAM to DRAM, ReRAM, and PCRAM. Furthermore, Professor Min has also been extensively involved in the design of analog circuits and synaptic weighting circuits in cellular neural networks.

The research head of the Italian institution is Professor F. Corinto, who has received his doctorate degree at Politecnico di Torino and has been conducting research on non-linear circuit analysis. Non-linear circuit analysis is frequently used in interpreting neural network circuits.

About Politecnico di Torino: Established in 1859, Politecnico di Torino is Italy’s oldest technical university and it holds the 75th rank in the Academic Ranking of World Universities. The institution is named as the top educational institution for technical research in Italy.
