I've got skills!

I started computer programming when I was 9. I began MFC(C++) Windows programming at age 14 and opened a personal website, "". I made a Hair Proportion Analysis algorithm and obtained a patent when I was 17. Now my interests are in machine learning application on computer vision and image signal processing.

"Kiyoon" stands for glowing field. I want to make my field of study glow in the future.
