SKKU professors will teach theoretical courses related to Big Data techniques while researchers at Samsung SDS will be appointed as adjunct professors in charge of practical training and case studies.
In the meantime, Samsung SDS will provide an analysis tool called ‘Brightics AI’, which is an integrated data analysis platform based on Samsung AI, to students without charge.
