Welcome to OMiLAB Korea!
This is the first collaboratory of OMiLAB, established on 2 Nov 2015 at Chonbuk National Unviersity in Republic of Korea. It was the first outcome of collaboration between Prof. Dimitris Karagiannis, The University of Vienna, and Prof. Moonkun Lee, Chonbuk National University since 2013. Further the lab became the bridge for MOU between the faculty of Computer Science, The University of Vienna, and The School of Engineering, Chonbuk National University.
The main goal of the laboratory is to initiate the Open Model Community in Korea, as well as, to expend the community to East and South Asia. Originally the Open Model is a movement of collective "open" intelligence from the Knowledge Engineering Group in The University of Vienna, as Jose Palazzo M. de Oliveira defined with goals as follows:
"Open models is the idea that certain models should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish,
without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control."
"The goals of the open models movement are similar to those of other open movements such as open source, open hardware, open content, open data, open science, and open access."
OMiLAB Korea will follow the notion and goals of the Open Models to realize the openness of the knowledge of mankind.
This will be the the first step for the OMiLAB movement in Korea as well as East and South Asia.
