Hybrid Device-Based Circadian ICT Research Center

Hybrid Device-Based Circadian ICT (C-ICT) Research Center of Kookmin University which is located at the foot of Mt. Bugak was open in June 2016 by the financial support with ERC (Engineering Research Center) project of National Research Foundation of Korea and Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.

The goal of C-ICT Research Center is establishing the intelligent wellness-care/healthcare ICT platform which recovers the circadian rhythm disorder, e.g., insomnia and depression induced by a frequent night duty, the abuse of cellular phone, and light pollution. Detailed purpose is cultivating the C-ICT circumstance/infrastructure which measures the bio-signal of user in real time, analyzes it in comparison with the standard, and finally recovers the bio-signal within the normal range by using a customized light therapy.

In this process, a variety of high-level technologies, such as a big data, algorithm for analyzing a circadian rhythm, software platform, deep learning, and hybrid devices, e.g., circadian glasses, smart patch, nano-LED, and IoT sticker, will be studied and developed.

Therefore, the C-ICT is really a multidisciplinary and of convergence subject including hardware, software, wearable healthcare, IoT, artificial intelligence, semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, display, LED, non-silicon technology, and energy-harvesting.

If the C-ICT platform is successfully established, a new market and huge value added will be created with the synergy effect of Korea-driven technology, such as semiconductors, displays, and communications. Furthermore, the C-ICT platform will potentially contribute to a national welfare and paradigm change of healthcare/wellness-care by enhancing a circadian rhythm.
