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 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 gain 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. This would be possible by the Neurocle Incorporation (representative: Hongsuk Lee) which 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. Although it is a company that has been established for less than a year, it has developed notable products.
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. This 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, medical, agriculture. Neurocle is also planning to extend its business abroad due to high demand of the overseas market toward high-end engineers.
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 making new applications more popular. We hope that a variety of users and creators of new applications will identify this software to help create a new environment that allows them to do what they want to do more freely, easily and quickly.
Neurocle is a team of various outstanding individuals. From deep learning experts to front-end and back-end software experts, production managers in charge of product and product planning, and sales and marketing experts are evenly distributed. It has a flexible organizational structure in which new members to work efficiently at any time with role properly shared. This is the biggest reason why they can grow in the team even though in the deep learning software market where the entry barrier and market uncertainty is both high.
What difficulties there might have been in pioneering new markets?
Finding a team member that suits to the original team is the most difficult task but also the reason why we can overcome it at the same time. The fact that deep learning is the latest technology makes it hard to secure a good engineer who understand technology and communicate it to customers. Even though 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 that we can enjoy our way through 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 raised 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. We hope that the talent pool will join us in realizing the vision of the company more passionately and more reliably than anyone else since we see "passion for achievement" as the most important virtue of talent. Please look forward to the future of Neurocle, which will grow into a solid company with the environment in which all members can freely express their opinions and take initiative."
