Dr. Jungryul Seo, our expert in machine learning and emotion detection based on physiological sensors, received his doctoral degree at Ajou University yesterday. Jungryul’s journey at UbiLife started as a MSc student, but then he changed to a combined MSc+PhD track which officially ended yesterday at the graduation day. During this journey, he has grown into an independent and productive researcher who has without a doubt a bright academic future ahead.
Jungryul is heading to a post-doctoral position at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul to continue his research on machine learning, this time focusing on robotics and AI. It is a very promising area, thus providing Jungryul with a great opportunity to expand is knowledge and kick-start his academic career path.
I want to express my deep gratitude to Jungryul for everything he has done at UbiLife (which is A LOT). There is a saying that nobody is irreplaceable, but in the case of Jungryul it just might be true. It will be hard to find as loyal, hard-working, skillful and resourceful person as Jungryul. I look forward to continue collaborating with him in years to come.
