[Academics]Hanyang Intelligence Data System Laboratory Participates in a Consortium for a Digital-Platform-Based Enterprises Support

The Hanyang Intelligence Data System Laboratory of the Department of Industrial Engineering has been selected for the Digital Platform Based Private Business Proliferation Support Project (PoC) being conducted by the National Information Society Agency. The Laboratory will task with supervision and cooperation?) with Autocarz and Genieworks, tackling illegal parking on the digital platform. The project aims to solve Seoul's illegal parking problem by planning and implementing a new business model, using the base of the public consolidated platform developed by the Seoul Metropolitan Government last year. At the same time, the consortium aims to commercialize the business model planned by private enterprises. The consortium is planning to create an artificial-intelligence-based prediction probability model on illegal parking, by collecting, processing, and analyzing various data. Utilizing these data, the consortium is also planning to showcase an array of additional services by the second half of the year. One of the services is an Open API Portal Service on Parking Control Prediction Information, which designs and develops a parking control prediction probability model and provides the generated information to O2O businesspersons in an Open API form. Since the data make it possible to target when and where the number of illegal parking frequently occur, parking lot operators and others can use it as important sources for location-based marketing. Also, it could serve as baseline data for analyzing the business area regarding vehicle maintenance and car wash businesses. Mun Chang-hun, the CEO of Autocarz, mentioned that he hopes to raise awareness about illegal parking problems among drivers through the implementation of this empirical project. He also added that he would like to contribute to the mitigation of traffic through additional services, the creation of new jobs in areas such as parking and car washing through the release of the data to the third parties.

[Medical Center]Hanyang University Hospital Introduced the Mobile Electronic List to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19, to increase hospital visitors’ convenience, manage information correctly, and prevent further spread of the virus, the Mobile Electronic List was introduced on June 22, and contactless services are currently being enhanced. Using smartphones to register their entrance, the Mobile Electronic List increases accuracy in managing hospital visitors through easy and accurate self-authentication which prevents fallacies; thus, it is a visitor management system that can assist in preventing the disease from spreading when a person has been confirmed to have contracted it. Hospital visitors need to identify themselves through an NFC tag or by scanning a QR code placed at the entrance and having their temperature checked, as well as reporting any respiratory symptoms or travel abroad to easily confirm entrance registration. After this procedure, the person does not need to go through the self-authentication process and only has to check their symptom status. The personal information and visit history will be deleted automatically after 4 weeks. Moreover, for hospital visitors who do not possess smartphones or have difficulties in filling out the mobile health questionnaires, questionnaire forms will still be available. This allows solving inconveniences when visiting the hospital such as confusion at the entrance and reduced waiting time for entering. Yoon Ho-joo, director of the hospital, said that “the Mobile Electronic List is expected to be a great help in rapidly detecting the movements of an infected person to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” and that “we will do our best to create a safe environment where hospital visitors can get treatment in a safe and reliable environment.” Global News Team Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[Performance]Hanyang University Had the 4th Highest Number of Students Pass the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam

On June 11, the University News Network announced the status of the universities with the highest rate of students passing the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam. From Hanyang University, 25 students passed the 1st exam while 25 students passed the 2nd exam. While these student statistics have been announced over the years, this is the first time the numbers of examinees from each university have been specified. Hanyang University's ratio of successful applicants for the 1st exam was 16.9% (25 people / 148 people), and on the 2nd exam it was 32.3% (77 people / 239 people). The number of successful applicants by univeristy data was provided by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea through information gathered during the exam application process when applicants had to enter which school they were from. The Tax Accountant Exam, just like all the other exams for specialized jobs in Korea, requires a 1st and 2nd exam. Both the 1st and 2nd exams use an absolute scale system, where the applicants must get at least an average of 60 points, and 40 points for each subject. However, while the 1st exam can be passed according to the absolute scale system because usually there are fewer successful candidates than the fixed minimum number for the final selection, there is quite a large number of people that still pass the test despite receiving disqualifying scores. Additionally,there has been an issue with the 2nd exam being insufficient to judge the quality of universities. This is because of the fact that the majority of applicants that are taking the 2nd exam graduated a long time ago. Considering this fact, it can be said that the 1st exam is a better index to measure the effectiveness of the universities. ▲ [Contributed by] 2020. 6. 11th University News Network Article Last year, the Human Resources Development Service of Korea announced the list of 37 universities that have had the most people pass the exam during the past 10 years, from 2009 to 2018. Including the 56th exam that was conducted in 2019 and having 11 years as its basis, the University of Seoul has the highest number of successful applicants, reaching the number 357. Chung-Ang University (251), Kyung Hee University (241), Woongji Accounting & Tax College (225), Dongguk University (208), Hanyang University (190), Dankook University (174), Korea University (174), Soongsil University (168), and Konkuk University (158) followed after. ▲ [Contributed by] 2020. 6. 11th University News Network Article Global News Team Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Performance]Four Graduates of Hanyang University are Amongst the 70 New Law School Prosecutors for 2020

Among the 70 new prosecutors in 2020, four were undergraduate students from Hanyang University, placing Hanyang as the sixth-highest among other Korean universities, and five were graduate students from Hanyang University’s School of Law, the fifth-highest amongst other domestic law schools. On May 11th, the Ministry of Justice newly appointed 70 people who passed the 9th bar exam from the School of Law as prosecutors. This year marks the first time that more than 70 law school graduates-turned prosecutors have been newly appointed since 2012 when 42 people passed the first bar exam. This is due to the sharp decrease in the number of graduates from the Judicial Research and Training Institute. According to The Law Journal on the 18th, which published an analysis regarding the newly picked prosecutors, Seoul National University and Yonsei University had the largest number with 13, followed by Korea University with 12. Sungkyunkwan University and Ewha Woman's University were tied at 4th with five students each. Hanyang University and Sogang University tied for sixth with four students each. Also, after analyzing the newly appointed prosecutors coming from law schools, Pusan National University’s School of Law topped the list with nine students. Pusan National University’s School of Law ranked ninth with only two students last year but jumped to first place this year. Korea University’s School of Law (8 students) and Sungkyunkwan University’s School of Law (7 students) took the top three spots. Hanyang University’s School of Law had only three students appointed last year, but as the number increased to five this year, it rose to a joint fifth place with Kyung Hee University’s School of Law. Out of the 70 newly hired prosecutors, 41 (58.6%) were women, a sharp increase from last year (38.1%, 21 people). By age group, those who were in the 30-31 year-old group accounted for the largest portion with 27.1%, followed by the 28-29 year-old group with 25.6%, and the 32-33 year-old group with 15.7%. There were 22 (31.4%) prosecutors that majored in law for their undergraduate degree, while more than 60% were non-law majors. On the other hand, the Ministry of Justice announced that it had selected qualified candidates based on the results of personality tests, third-phase competency evaluations, and organizational competency evaluations in order to verify the candidates' in-depth public ethics, ethical awareness, balanced perspective and human rights awareness through document screening and working-level records in order to verify their academic performance and professionalism. The newly appointed prosecutors will receive intensive and substantial training such as but not limited to theory and practice of criminal law, prosecution investigation, lectures on investigative techniques, evaluation of working records, ethics education specifically for prosecutors, and working-level settlement of the frontline office (2 months), and will then carry out their duties as prosecutors.
