We are a research group headed by Prof. Jaekyun Moon in the School of EE at KAIST. We work on distributed storage, communications, decentralized computing and learning, dealing with optimal ways to store, access and utilize big data in today's densely connected world. Distributed and decentralized ways of data storage and machine learning are essential in the era of IoT, big data and connected AI.

About & Contact

We are looking for new MS and Ph. D. students as well as post-docs in the areas of distributed storage, communications, decentralized computing and machine learning. Interested candidates may contact Prof. Jaekyun Moon via email (

Research Areas: distributed storage, communications, decentralized data processing (block chain), distributed computing/machine learning and high-speed/hardware-friendly learning algorithms, all using various theoretical tools and insights from the fields of communications, signal processing, statistics and information theory.
