 “In the near future, patients will see clean and wireless operating rooms,” said Kang Kyung-tae, an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Hanyang University(HYU). Kang conducted research in a real-time mobile care system and his paper titled MedicalGrade Quality of Service for Real-Time Mobile Healthcare, was published in the 2015 IEEE Computer, one of the most highly reputable computer magazines in the world, which only publishes 12 articles per year.

 Regarding his research, Kang said, “When I was a researcher at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign(UIUC), I had a chance to meet Julian Goldman, the recipient of the International Council on Systems Engineering 2010 Pioneer Award. At first, I was only interested in the operating system of computers, but he emphasized the importance of mobile health care in relation to computer science. After the discussion through a video call, I became more interested in the field. That is the reason why I started my research on mobile health care.”

 His new area of study, however, was challenging as he majored in computer science and engineering, and he did not know about communication networks and medical devices a lot. To overcome this difficulty, he consulted with Park Kyung-joon, a Professor in the Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology, about communication networks, and Julian Goldman about medical care. “Whatever the challenge is, I wanted to persevere in my studies because one of my friend’s sons was suffering from osteoporosis. He had to check his level of blood glucose twice or three times a day using a syringe, and he was tired of this routine. Then one day, in the United Kingdom, a new type of mobile -wan technology was developed and was launched with the ability to make diagnoses, using only microchips and cards while reducing the pain his son experienced. This became a strong source of motivation for me to study the mobile healthcare system continuously.”

 Professor Kang dreams of creating a medical care device that can diagnose in real-time and warn patients in advance about conditions before critical problems occur. “Ultimately, I want my research to be applicable to the operating room through remote devices that can diagnose, operate, and complete their tasks without much human control. However, it is difficult to do so because safety must be ensured.” He emphasized that it is necessary to guarantee safety in order to advance this type of technology in the future. Kang concluded by expressing his hope that more Hanyangians would be interested in this area in the future.
