Exobrain is the national representative R&D project for artificial intelligence (AI), with an aim of developing AI technology in the language-processing field so as to support humans with intelligent labor by ensuring the core intellectual property right (IPR) through development and standardization of the original technologies of ① reasoning the meaning of a language beyond the analysis of language grammar, ② Learning and accumulating high-level knowledge, such as causes, procedures, and correlations in specialized fields, and ③ deep question answering through successive questions and answers of human beings and machines in specialized fields.
Exobrain has been under development for 10 years, in 3 phases, with a focus on development of language intelligence SW capable of understanding a language, knowledge learning, and provision of services based on expert level knowledge. In the first phase, it will develop the analytical type Exobrain SW core technology for general field, in the second phase, it will develop the application technology for Exobrain SW for specialized field, and in the third phase, it will develop the commercial technology for the deep Question Answering Exobrain SW that can be explained.
The Exobrain project is implemented by a consortium formed by major domestic research institutes for the purpose of developing a language intelligence SW capable of learning and accumulating languages and knowledge from text big data and providing knowledge in expert fields through communication with users. The detailed tasks of the consortium include the comprehensive project (hosted by ETRI), detailed task 1 (hosted by ETRI), and detailed task 2 (hosted by Saltlux). The roles of each detailed task are as follows.
Exobrain aims to contribute to the creation of new markets in various industries by supporting humans with knowledge labor such as investigation and analysis of vast amounts of text used by a large number of humans and developing an expert system for quick and efficient decision making. This expert system could be used as an AI lawyer, an AI patent attorney, an AI consultant, etc.
