Hidden Champion: Hongsuk Lee (CEO of Neurocle Inc.)

As big data, blockchain, artificial intelligence and virtual reality in the IT sector are emerging as keywords for the fourth industrial revolution, people are trying to jump on the new trend of the economy and seize opportunities. But most of the industries require developers in terms of understanding basic software development. But It is hard to hire highly qualified professionals for all industries. In response, There is a company that helps people to use deep learning technology to the level of experts and helps them seize new opportunities.

We want to create a new environment for creators to simulate ideas.

Talented members from Seoul National University, Yonsei University, and UCLA, as well as talent from leading IT companies such as Samsung, LG, and Kakao, have gathered to build a new deep learning SW ecosystem of universal AI technology. Although it is a company that has not been established for a year yet, the company that developed Deep Learning Image Interpretation SW that is easily available to anyone and can generate the desired level of deep learning model based on deep learning image/image recognition technology.

Founded in June this year, Neurocle is a team that seeks innovation in all areas necessary for startup operations, from product development to business expansion. Those who believe that innovation does not occur in only one field are constantly striving for the first goal of developing/launching Neuro-T and Neuro-R, deep learning-based image interpretation software. The software is an application that helps non-experts, who lack expertise in engineering, to make use of the creation of a deep learning model for image interpretation without difficulty. The actual users of Neuro-T and Neuro-R can create deep learning model of segmentation, classification, detection. and they can apply deep learning models to various industries such as defense, manufacturing, defense, agriculture. neurocle is also planning to extend its business abroad due to high demand of the overseas market.

Lee said” We want to use deep learning-based innovation to solve complex image recognition problems that various industries require,”, “We look forward to the new releases of Neuro-T and Neuro-R help make new applications more popular. We hope that a variety of users and creators of new applications will be identified as this software to help create a new environment that allows them to do what they want to do more freely, easily and quickly.

Growing Team

It has a flexible organizational structure that allows new talent to be melted at any time while being efficient with proper role sharing. Though technically the entry barrier is high and market uncertainty is also high, the biggest reason why they can grow is the team.

what difficulties there might have been in exploring new markets?

The biggest difficulty is finding a team member, but the reason why we can overcome it is also a team member. We want someone who has a high level of technical understanding and who is well suited to the team members. Deep learning, which is studied by Neurocle, is the latest technology, so securing a good engineer to understand and communicate it to customers was the biggest challenge. But the process of exploring these team members was not just difficult, and sometimes it's a fun time.

How could you overcome it?

“Fortunately, we`ve been joined by talented engineers and team members who are genuinely concerned about the company`s direction and are helping us build a framework for corporate culture as well as a performance as a startup. I would like to express my deep gratitude to those who give me faith in the greater adversity ahead."

What kind of company do you want to build in the future?

"A company is not an organization that can be grown by an individual. Therefore, I want to grow the company along with talented people who can sympathize with the direction of the company and put it into practice. Basically, we want to see "passion for achievement" as the most important virtue of talent, and we hope that the talent pool will join us in realizing the vision of the company more passionately and more reliably than anyone else. Please look forward to the future of Neurocle, which will grow into a solid company with them, because there is an environment in which all members can freely express their opinions and take initiative."
