BMIL: Brain and Machine Intelligence Lab.

We build machine intelligence
by learning brains

두뇌의 원리를 이해하여 기계를 위한 지능을 만들고자 합니다

BMIL /Bi Mil/ (비밀; meaning “secret” in Korean) is Brain and Machine Intelligence Laboratory led by Prof. Minhae Kwon. We aim to learn the secret of the brain and build machine intelligence. Our mission is not limited to building algorithms for a single intelligence, but we also aim to build a network (society) of machine intelligence.

Our research interests include Artificial Intelligence, Network Science, and Brain Science (computational neuroscience).
