SEOUL -- South Korea's Hyundai auto group has recruited Kyunghyun Cho, a renowned artificial intelligence expert, to bolster capabilities in mobility and future car businesses. He would advise on the application of AI technology to the mobility industry and the excavation of new AI-based business opportunities.

The associate professor of computer science and data science at New York University would work with AIRS, an organization dedicated to the development of Hyundai and Kia’s AI technologies and AI-based services. "We look forward to working with Professor Cho to explore ways to incorporate AI technology in the mobility industry," AIRS head Kim Jeong-hee said in a statement on April 23.

Hyundai said that Cho would advise on the application of AI technology to the mobility industry and the excavation of new AI-based business opportunities.

Cho has developed a neural machine translation algorithm that enables high-quality translation by understanding the overall context of translated sentences and showed achievements in the research of multimodal AI systems that can learn different types of combined data such as text and images.
