According to Yonhap News,

(JEONJU=Yonhap News) "The 14th Jeonbuk Science Festival" is to be held at Jeonbuk-do government building for three days, starting from September 20. The Festival is expected to give glimpse of major technologies in the fourth industrial revolution.

During the festival, core technologies leading the fourth industrial revolution, including artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), Robot, and 3D printing will be presented for visitors' experience.

Future new industries converged with these core technologies will also be introduced.

The Festival used to be held in the end of August until last year, but it will be moved to late September to avoid sizzling hot weather.
