Sensor has been one of the core components of a lot of technologies for a long period of time. And it has continuously been evolving as a complex module that notices five senses as well as provides extrasenosory information. Along with the development of smart sensors that can be combined with high-tech industries, sensors have created a lot of added values. Sensor is a core technology for the operation of autonomous vehicles. Development of a sensor with fast recognition and precise judgement has contributed to the complete automation and commercialization of autonomous vehicles. Micro-sensors have also been closely connected with people’s daily lives. A portable sensor can check the surrounding environment and help a user deal with possible risk factors. Evolution of sensors into complex modules with improved functions have brought about innovative changes to the distribution sector as well. As it can chase the flow of customers and sense the objects that are chosen by customers, it can contribute to achieving sales increase. We report on the continuing development of smart sensors into complex modules.
The fourth industrial revolution has brought about significant changes to various fields including the financial sector. FinTech, which has led the digitalization of the financial sector, has created new types of financial services by implementing IT skills like AI, or artificial intelligence, big data, robot, blockchain and biometrics. And the global FinTech market, which used to be around 290 billion dollars in 2013, achieved rapid growth and reached 800 billion dollars in 2017. Such a rapid rise of the FinTech market has also provided various opportunities to the businesses specialized in financial services. A lot of differentiated financial services have been provided by adopting the cutting-edge IT skills. We analyze the major technologies that have been applied to the financial sector and a paradigm shift that is currently taking place in the field of financial services.
OLED technologies are expected to bring about a paradigm shift to the global display market. Aside from TVs and smartphones, it has been applied to a variety of different industries including display, lighting and VR. And it has shown limitless potential for further market expansion. A lot of domestic companies have played a leading role in the global market based on the advanced OLED technologies. Thanks to the rapid rise of OLED, the related companies have focused more on the development and production of materials for displays. Moreover, a lot of markets have been created along with the continuing development of flexible OLED panels. As a result, OLED has risen as a major growth engine for exports. We introduce OLED technologies, which have led a lot of newly emerging industries.
