Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment via Fast User Adaptation [article]

Hee-Seung Moon, Jiwon Seo
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Dynamic difficulty adjustment (DDA) is a technology that adapts a game's challenge to match the player's skill. It is a key element in game development that provides continuous motivation and immersion to the player. However, conventional DDA methods require tuning in-game parameters to generate the levels for various players. Recent DDA approaches based on deep learning can shorten the time-consuming tuning process, but require sufficient user demo data for adaptation. In this paper, we

Emergent Localization in Dodecagonal Bilayer Quasicrystals [article]

Moon Jip Park, Hee Seung Kim, SungBin Lee
2018 arXiv   pre-print
A new type of long-range ordering in the absence of translational symmetry gives rise to drastic revolution of our common knowledge in condensed matter physics. Quasicrystal, as such unconventional system, became a plethora to test our insights and to find exotic states of matter. In particular, electronic properties in quasicrystal have gotten lots of attention along with their experimental realization and controllability in twisted bilayer systems. In this work, we study how quasicrystalline

We focus on dodecagonal quasicrystal that has been demonstrated in twisted bilayer graphene system in recent experiments. In the presence of small gap, we show the localization generically occurs due to non-periodic nature of quasicrystal, which is evidenced by the inverse participation ratio and the energy level statistics. We understand the origin of such localization by approximating the dodecagonal quasicrystals as an impurity scattering problem.

Stepwise Current Increment Sintering of Silver Nanoparticle Structures

Dongkeun Kim, Arif Hussain, Hee-Lak Lee, Yoon-Jae Moon, Junyoung Hwang, Seung-Jae Moon
2021 Crystals  
Owing to its unique properties, silver (Ag) in the form of nanoparticle (NP) ink promises to play a vital role in the development of printed and flexible electronics. Once printed, metal NP inks require a thermal treatment process called sintering to render them conductive. Among the various methods, electrical sintering is a highly selective and rapid sintering method. Here, we studied the electrical sintering of inkjet-printed Ag NP lines via a stepwise current increment sintering (SCIS)

In the SCIS technique, the supplied electric current was gradually increased in multiple steps from low electric currents to higher electric currents to avoid thermal damage to the printed Ag NP ink lines. In less than 0.15 s, a line resistivity as low as 6.8 μΩcm was obtained which was comparable with furnace sintered line resistivity of 6.13 μΩcm obtained at 250 °C in 600 s. Furthermore, a numerical model was developed for the SCIS process temperature estimation. The results enabled us to elaborate on the relationship between the Ag NP line resistivity and the process temperature under various electric currents. Under the applied SCIS technique, a stable sintering process was carried out avoiding the conductive ink line and substrate damage.

2016 Medicine  
The aim of the study was to examine the clinical characteristics and prognosis according to severity of thrombocytopenia and response to treatment for thrombocytopenia in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We retrospectively evaluated 230 SLE patients with thrombocytopenia, and reviewed their clinical data and laboratory findings. Thrombocytopenia was defined as platelet counts under 100,000/mm 3 , and patients were divided into 3 thrombocytopenia groups according to severity:

Furthermore, complete remission of thrombocytopenia was defined as platelet counts >100,000/mm 3 after treatment. There was no significant difference in clinical or laboratory findings among the groups according to severity of thrombocytopenia. However, hemorrhagic complications were more frequent in severe thrombocytopenia (P < 0.001) and mortality was also higher (P ¼ 0.001). Complete remission was achieved in 85.2% of patients. The clinical characteristics and modality of treatment did not differ between the patients with and without complete remission. Mortality in patients with complete remission (1.5%) was significantly lower than in those without complete remission (29.4%, P < 0.001). Survival was significantly higher in patients with complete remission from thrombocytopenia (odds ratio ¼ 0.049, 95% confidence interval: 0.013-0.191, P < 0.001). The severity of thrombocytopenia in SLE patients can be a useful independent prognostic factor to predict survival. Moreover, complete remission of thrombocytopenia after treatment is an important prognostic factor. The severity of thrombocytopenia and response to treatment should be closely monitored to predict prognosis in SLE patients.

Sample-Efficient Training of Robotic Guide Using Human Path Prediction Network [article]

Hee-Seung Moon, Jiwon Seo
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Training a robot that engages with people is challenging, because it is expensive to involve people in a robot training process requiring numerous data samples. This paper proposes a human path prediction network (HPPN) and an evolution strategy-based robot training method using virtual human movements generated by the HPPN, which compensates for this sample inefficiency problem. We applied the proposed method to the training of a robotic guide for visually impaired people, which was designed

We collected 1,507 real-world episodes for training the HPPN and then generated over 100,000 virtual episodes for training the robot policy. User test results indicate that our trained robot accurately guides blindfolded participants along a goal path. In addition, by the designed reward to pursue both guidance accuracy and human comfort during the robot policy training process, our robot leads to improved smoothness in human motion while maintaining the accuracy of the guidance. This sample-efficient training method is expected to be widely applicable to all robots and computing machinery that physically interact with humans.
