Korea to adopt AI, big data, blockchain for customs service

The Korea Customs Service will adopt advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence, big data and blockchain, for its customs administration in response to growing trade and ecommerce volume, according to the agency on Wednesday.

“Adopting new technologies to respond to the ‘fourth industrial revolution’ is an overriding agenda for us as trade form is becoming more complicated,” said Kim Yung-moon, commissioner of the Korea Customs Service, during a meeting attended by Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon.

 

The Korea Customs Service plans to set up a big data analysis center to improve timeliness and accuracy of identifying illegal items utilizing big data technologies. The agency will build a platform by combining customs administration of all data within the organization and adopting related hardware and software.
