G-Dragon was appointed as a visiting professor at the Korea Advanced Institute Of Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as KAIST).

According to KAIST, G-Dragon received a letter of appointment as a visiting professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at KAIST after participating in the “Innovate Korea 2024” talk show held at the KAIST headquarters in Daejeon on June 5.

Hosted by KAIST and the National Research Council of Science and Technology (NST), “Innovate Korea 2024” is an event where G-Dragon, Galaxy Corporation’s CEO Choi Yong Ho, and Lee Kwang Hyung, the president of KAIST, discussed future technologies related to artificial intelligence (AI) and K-pop.

G-Dragon’s appointment as a visiting professor is valid for two years until June 4, 2026. In addition to this, he will also act as a global ambassador for KAIST and will help strengthen KAIST’s overseas promotion. It is expected that G-Dragon will stand on the podium to give a special lecture on leadership for undergraduate and graduate students, sharing his experiences as an artist and providing students with vision and insight into the world.

Regarding his visiting professor appointment, G-Dragon shared, “It is an honor to be a visiting professor at KAIST, [an institute] which produces many scientific geniuses. I look forward to great synergy, or a ‘big bang,’ through the meeting between the best experts in science and technology and my expertise in the field of entertainment.”

Last year, G-Dragon signed an exclusive contract with Galaxy Corporation and has been pursuing AI-related activities, which he has been showing his interest in. G-Dragon also attended the Consumer Electronics Show 2024 (CES 2024), which is the world’s largest electronics and information technology (IT) exhibition held in Las Vegas last January.

Congratulations to G-Dragon!
