National AI Research InstituteMaking a Better Tomorrow

President Greeting

ETRI is continuously committing its resources to R&D efforts that could lead to digital transformation.
We will become a research institute beloved by the public, trusted by the government, and acknowledged by our customers.

President of ETRIKIM, Myung Joon

Today, we are living in the age of a great revolution called the 4th Industrial Revolution. This revolution is sometimes also referred to as the “Age of Digital Transformation” or the “2nd Period of the Information Age.” Regardless of the term used, the key enabling technology is ICT. Collectively called ABCI, Artificial Intelligence (A), Big Data (B), Cloud computing(C), and Internet of Things (I) are all ICT.

Therefore, we at ETRI are aware of the immense responsibility because our organization presides over all ICT research and development efforts sponsored by the national government. As a tool of innovation, ICT is not only intellectualizing the structure of industries from manufacturing to defense, medical care, culture, education, and agriculture/livestock/fishing industries but will enhance the individual lives of people in safe, convenient ways. The approximately 2000 employees of ETRI are diligently and strongly devoted to carrying out research to realize this national calling.

ETRI plans to acquire global technological competitiveness through the development of hyper-connected intelligent infrastructure technology and lend support to the innovative growth of the country. At the same time, based on ICT, we will contribute to the creation of a safe social environment that people can trust with peace of mind. We also wish to help build a nation that overflows with the spirit of caring through the development of “people-friendly” ICT that could be used in creating a people-oriented digital society.

ETRI is continuously committing its resources to R&D efforts that could lead to a better future, a safer environment, and a comfortable life. We will become a research institute beloved by the public, trusted by the government, and acknowledged by our customers.

We would appreciate your encouragement and advice in helping ETRI go beyond South Korea to the rest of the whole world. Inspired by public expectations, we shall respond by becoming a national research institute that can lead the future of humanity and the country through collaborations with domestic and international experts.

Thank you.
