The emergence of deep learning/artificial intelligence (DL/AI) technologies has discovered and developed many valuable and practical applications in the interdisciplinary field of information and communication technology (ICT) and medical applications, ushering in a new medical and disease diagnosis era. Medical big data makes it possible to apply newly developed ICT technologies to the increasingly popular medical field. In addition, the development of deep learning-based medical solutions is accelerating in the COVID-19 era as the demand for non-face-to-face medical services increases. The Medical Image-Based Intelligent Diagnosis Solution (MIIDS) Research Center is pioneering a new convergence technology field through joint research with universities, hospitals, and companies.


MYUNG HOON SUNWOO received an M.S. and Ph.D. from KAIST in 1982 and the University of Texas at Austin in 1990, respectively. He worked for ETRI in Korea (1982-1985) and DSP Operations at Motorola in Austin, Texas (1990-1992). Since 1992, he has been with Ajou University in Suwon, Korea, where he is currently a Professor. He has authored over 470 papers, held over 120 patents, and won over 60 awards. He has been an AE of IEEE TVLSI (2002-2003) and a coeditor of several books, including “Selected Topics in Biomedical Circuits and Systems,” 2021. He served as the General Chair of ISCAS 2012 in Seoul and ISCAS 2021 in Daegu, Korea. in 2022. He has been an IEEE CASS DL (2009–2010) and has served on the BoG (2011–2016) and the VP-Conferences (2018–2021). As VP-Conference, he founded IEEE AICAS, and the first AICAS was held in Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2019. AICAS has become the CASS Premier Conference. He is the director of the Medical Image-Based Intelligent Diagnostic Solutions (MIIDS) Research Center. His research interests include artificial intelligence circuits and systems and medical imaging diagnosis. He was elected as IEEE CASS President-Elect (2022–2023) and is an IEEE Fellow.

Clustering Applications Using Synchronization of Chaotic Circuit Networks with Weighted Coupling

In this talk, I talk about clustering phenomena in a network composed of coupled chaotic circuits. In this investigation, the coupling strength is reflected by the distance information when the chaotic circuits are placed in two/three-dimensional grid. It is possible to observe various clustering phenomena in the network of coupled chaotic circuits when the scaling parameters are changed, including the coupling strength, the distance between coupled chaotic circuits and the density of the chaotic circuits.


Yoko Uwate (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.E., M.E., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from Tokushima University, Tokushima, Japan, in 2003, 2005, and 2006, respectively.,From October 2006 to March 2008, she was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (PD) of the Japan Society for the Promotion Science (JSPS) with the Tokushima University, and she was also a Visiting Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with the Institute of Neuroinformatics (INI), University of Zurich, and ETH Zurich, Switzerland. From April 2008 to March 2010, she worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow for research abroad of JSPS at the Institute of Neuroinformatics (INI), University of Zurich, and ETH Zurich. Since April 2010, she has been working with Tokushima University, where her is currently an Associate Professor. Her research interests include complex phenomena in chaotic circuits and neural networks.,Dr. Uwate is a member of the IEEE CAS Society Board of Governors (2013–2015 and 2021–present). She was the Chair of the IEEE CAS Society Technical Committee on Neural Systems and Applications (NSA) (2019–2021). Now, she has been the WiCAS-YP Chair of the IEEE CAS Society (since 2021). She was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems—I: Regular Papers (2012–2013) and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems—II: Express Briefs (2017–2019). She has been an Associate Editor of IEEE CAS Society Newsletter (since 2012).
