Korea this year ranks eighth in global digital competitiveness according to the Switzerland-based International Institute for Management Development (IMD). (IMD homepage)



By Kim Hyelin and Yoon Sojung


Korea ranks eighth this year in digital competitiveness, up two notches from last year.


The Ministry of Science and ICT on Oct. 3 said Korea this year placed eighth among 63 countries in digital competitiveness as ranked by the Switzerland-based International Institute for Management Development (IMD).


The country has steadily risen on the list over the last few years, going from 19th in 2017 to 14th in 2018 and tenth last year.


The IMD rankings measure a country's capacity and preparedness in 52 detailed criteria under the three factors of knowledge, technology and future readiness.

The U.S. finished No. 1 and Singapore second on this year's list, the same as in last year. Denmark ranked third, followed by Sweden, Hong Kong, Switzerland and the Netherlands. China placed 16th and Japan 27th.  

Korea showed overall improvement by earning higher scores in all three factors.


Korea ranked third in future readiness, up a notch from last year, thanks to its top scores in e-participation and internet retailing under the adaptive attitudes section. The category measures a country's readiness in digital transition.

In technology, Korea ranked 12th, up five notches from last year and mainly led by having the world's second-fastest broadband speed. The category measures capacity for digital innovation development.


In the knowledge section that gauges the capacity for understanding, discovering and expanding new technology, Korea ranked 10th, up from 11th from last year, thanks to high scores in expenditures on research and development (R&D) and R&D personnel per capita.


The ministry said in a news release, ''Through cooperation with other government ministries, we will improve weaker indexes such as those on technology development and adaptation, fostering female researchers and investment in the communications sector.''

The speed of Wi-Fi will get five times faster. 


The Ministry of Science and ICT on Oct. 15 said it will supply an unlicensed 6-gigahertz frequency band.

This means broader channel width and more channels than those of existing Wi-Fi, allowing data transmission at the same speed as that of 5G.

The new service will feature a massive boost in communication speed, and be made available free to everyone at crowded public and indoor facilities such as large-size cafes, schools and public transit stations.

To launch the six-gigahertz band, the ministry said it will not only supply the service but also promote support for next-generation Wi-Fi demonstration projects and their commercial application by small and medium companies.

A few days ago in 2045, Su-yeong got a new tooth thanks to reproductive stem cell technology that replaced her old tooth with a healthy new one. People can replace not only their teeth but also skin, bones and internal organs such as the liver with artificial versions. Moreover, technology has restored aged cells to those of newborns, a development expected to significantly extend the longevity of human life.

Though it might sound like a science fiction novel, daily life in Korea in 2045 could see major scientific and technological advances.

The Ministry of Science and ICT on Aug. 26 announced the plan "Science and Technology Future Strategies 2045" at the 12th meeting of the Presidential Advisory Council on Science & Technology in Seoul.

The plan shows what daily life could be in 2045, the centennial anniversary of national liberation, covering eight challenges Koreans will face in the future.

For climate change, the ministry aims to slow global warming by using high efficiency and eco-friendly energy and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology. Its blueprint also envisions a data-based management system for disasters and the securing of technologies to tackle climate change, such as the use of materials emitting no fine dust.

Curing what are now incurable diseases and brain-related ailments is also among the eight tasks. The plan mentions gene editing and stem cell treatments for cancer and hereditary diseases as solutions to these problems.

Advances in science and technology are expected to raise abundance and convenience in society. The ministry will also secure food for the future by establishing ICT-based, 24-hour unmanned agricultural and fish farms and factories to operate year round.

By securing clean hydrogen energy and expanding urban solar power, the strategies aim to secure a stable energy supply and advanced futuristic technologies such as the development of mini-size batteries with large capacity, space-based solar cells and power generation through nuclear fusion.

The strategies seek to develop technologies contributing to equality, non-discriminatory communication and social trust. The ministry said the plan will help people communicate using virtual reality and enable humans, machines and animals to communicate through brain waves, which will allow unique experiences.

These strategies are expected to create a more trustworthy and safer network environment backed by blockchain, quantum cryptographic communication and next-generation future security technologies. 


Moving vehicles will see a major paradigm shift. For example, a manned spaceship will make a roundtrip from Seoul to New York within two hours.

President Moon Jae-in on July 14 announces the specifics of the Korean New Deal in a national reporting meeting at Cheong Wa Dae. (Yonhap News)



By Kim Young Deok and Lee Jihae


President Moon Jae-in on July 14 announced the specifics of the Digital New Deal, part of the Korean New Deal, saying "Adding our digital capabilities to industries across the board can help transform our economy from a fast-follower into a pace-setter."


In a national reporting meeting, he announced plans to invest KRW 58.2 trillion in the setup of a D.N.A. (data-network-AI) ecosystem to foster non-contact sectors and digitize social overhead capital to emerge as the world's No. 1 digital country.


For the ecosystem project, the government will first open 142,000 pieces of public data and utilize them in manufacturing, medicine and the bio industry. It will also push ahead with a convergence project combining 5G and artificial intelligence to create tangible content such as culture, sports and tourism, as well as set up smart museums and exhibitions based on information and communications technology.

A non-contact infrastructure will also be formed for fields closely related to daily life such as medicine and work to lay the foundation for the growth of pertinent industries. Eighteen smart hospitals to be built will also use digital technology in helping establish smart medical and caretaker infrastructure.


For public safety and convenience, a forthcoming management system for smart national infrastructure will focus on securing the people's safety and creating new industries. The government announced public investment of KRW 15.8 trillion by 2025 to set up a digital management system for sectors such as traffic, water resources and disaster response.

President Moon said, "Korea has the technology and capabilities to spearhead the digital revolution," adding, "We will strongly push digitalization in all areas of our lives, including the social, economic, educational, industrial and medical. In this manner, we will march toward becoming the No. 1 digital country, the global leader."

President Moon Jae-in on Oct. 28 emphasized his administration's resolve to make the country go beyond its status as an information and communications technology (ICT) powerhouse and make Korea a global power in artificial intelligence (AI), pledging "national-level support" for AI.


He was speaking at the AI conference De View (short for "Developer's View") 2019 in Seoul. Attended by entrepreneurs, AI developers and students, the event is a major stage for domestic tech startups and related exchanges that attracts about 1,200 AI virtuoso.


The president cited the example of a senior citizen who collapsed in May at midnight due to high blood pressure. He survived by seeking help through a government-provided AI speaker, which was part of social services for elderly who live alone.


President Moon said the world is now living in the AI era, adding, "AI transcends scientific and technological advances. It's a new civilization that is approaching us."


"Korea led the internet revolution when it went through the financial crisis of 1997. It now boasts the world's top-tier manufacturing competitiveness and No. 1 ICT infrastructure and an abundance of electronic government data."


"If we combine AI with our competitive fields, we can create the smartest and human-like AI," he added.


"The Fourth Industrial Revolution is an era in which imagination will determine the world."


President Moon pledged government support for AI developers so that "they can unfold and fulfill their limitless imagination," adding, "To aid developers, we will switch to comprehensive negative regulations and break down the barriers for each sector."


The government has earmarked KRW 1.7 trillion for next year's budget for data, network and AI, up 50% from this year's amount, he said.


"We will lay out a national AI strategy based on a completely new basic plan (for AI) by the end of this year," he added.


"We will provide educational opportunities so that anyone who wants to learn about AI can do so."


He also said the government will be based on AI and digitization and provide the people with high-quality services in fields interlinked with daily life such as the environment, disaster management, and national security and defense.

President Moon Jae-in on June 10 visits Otaniemi, a district in Espoo, Finland, known as the "Silicon Valley of Europe." (Cheong Wa Dae’s official Facebook page)


By Xu Aiying and Lee Jihae 

President Moon Jae-in has used his three-nation tour of Northern Europe to reconfirm cooperation and support from Finland, Norway and Sweden, three key partners in Korea’s policy toward "innovative growth."

On the first leg of his trip in Finland, the president on June 10 signed memorandums of understanding on sectors related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, 6G telecommunication technology and joint research. Both nations also agreed to exchange policies on information and communications technology (ICT) and cooperate in 5G, artificial intelligence and big data. 

Seoul and Helsinki will regularly hold meetings on the results of B5G (Beyond 5G) and B6G (Beyond 6G) and seek to form a next-generation global telecommunication network. 

Also on June 10, the president visited Otaniemi, a district in Espoo nicknamed the "Silicon Valley of Europe." There, he received briefings on how Finland became the world’s most innovative country in around ten years. 

On the second leg of his three-nation Northern European tour in Norway from June 11-13, he and the Norwegian government agreed to arrange a cooperative system in science and technology. 

Seoul and Oslo will also establish a joint board on science and technology by 2020 to exchange related policies, as well as press ahead with joint research or projects in renewable energy and ICT. They will also cooperate in producing, recycling and storing hydrogen, a pollution-free energy source. 

Arriving in Stockholm on June 13, President Moon will wrap up his Northern European tour after attending the Korea-Sweden Business Summit, where major corporations such as Ericsson, Volvo and IKEA will participate, to bolster bilateral cooperation in ICT and biohealth.
