Pyongyang, September 23 (KCNA) — Unpaduk (silk go), a Korean computer go programme, took first in the 4th Fost Cup World Computer Go Championships held in Japan some time ago.
Silk go was developed at the silver star laboratories (SSL) under the Korean Unbyol General Trading Corporation, which was founded in Juche 84 (1995).
According to director Kang Yong Jun, researchers at the SSL are 26 years old on an average. Most of them graduated from Kim Il Sung University and other famous universities in the country after leaving Pyongyang Senior Middle School no.1, a genius-training centre.
The SSL develops silver mirror (a remote-controlling programme) and other communication software, silk go, Korean chess and other AI games software and OA (office automation) software.
It also produces Korean, English, Japanese and other national languages recognition programmes, editing programmes for multi-medium items such as Korean stamps and Taekwon-do, and electronic dictionaries including Korean-English, E-K, Korean-Japanese and J-K dictionaries.
Orders for various kinds of software from foreign countries are accepted at the laboratories.
The SSL proved successful at the 3rd Fost Cup World Computer go championships and the ING Cup International Go Congress in 1997.
