– INFINIQ, AI FOR PET receives CES 2022 Innovation Award
– Proving status as an AI powerhouse with visible results of the government-led AI activation strategy
Artificial Intelligence (AI) companies based in Korea paved the way to the world through ‘CES 2022’, the world’s largest home appliance exhibition on the 5th of Jan, 2022. These companies participated in ‘The Open AI Dataset Project’ which is the world’s first government-led systemization and utilization of AI training data.
Six companies (INFINIQ, AI FOR PET, OUaR LaB, AIMMO, MJ Vision Tech, Alyce Healthcare, saltlux) using artificial intelligence training data established by the Ministry of Science and ICT (Minister Hye-sook Lim) and the National Information Society Agency (President Yong-sik Moon) and opened through AI-Hub participated in CES 2022.
In particular, as CES focused on future technologies such as AI, digital health, transportation, and smart cities this year, companies that build and utilize data for artificial intelligence training gained a lot of attention.
INFINIQ, a leading AI solution provider, received Innovation Awards in two categories: Software & Mobile Apps and Smart Cities for its artificial intelligence retail solution “AI Counter.”
The “AI Counter” applied AI computer vision convergence technology “HEX VISION” developed using data (Korean object image data, facial recognition, behavior recognition, and object recognition data) built through ‘the Open AI Dataset Project (AI-HUB, S.Korea)’. The solution is expected to be widely used in future retail industries such as unmanned stores as it enables detecting objects with its embedded camera.
AI FOR PET, a company that utilizes data for artificial intelligence learning, was also honored with an Innovation Award for its pet disease management service “TTcare.” AI FOR PET, which developed the industry’s first artificial intelligence service that diagnoses diseases with the image of pets’ eye and skin photos and actively used “Pet eye and skin disease data” for service development.
In addition, OUaR LaB, a healthcare company, has started to explore the global market of Sleeptech through “Oxleep,” an artificial intelligence sleep apnea treatment device. OUaR LaB, a company that builds and utilizes ‘Sleep Quality Evaluation and Sleep Disorder Diagnosis Image Data’ open to AI-Hub, is expected to make a global leap forward as Korea’s leading sleeptech company.
Through this exhibition, AIMMO, an AI data labeling platform company, introduced “Smart Labeling” technology that automatically labels data necessary for autonomous driving and smart city fields.
As the importance of “data” is repeatedly emphasized in the artificial intelligence industry, AIMMO expressed its ambition to leap forward as a global AI data company with the data labeling total management service “AIMMO GTaaS.”
MJ Vision Tech, which stands out in the domestic video analysis market, participated in CES 2022 with its AI-based smart control solution ‘AIBIS’. By securing data for AI advancement through the use of artificial intelligence training data, it aims to gain competitiveness in smart control solutions and accelerate entry into the U.S. market.
Alyce Healthcare, which developed an artificial intelligence service based on fitness posture image data, submitted an AI home training service “Weelo” to the exhibition. Alice Healthcare currently provides
the solution to Samsung Life Insurance and is expected to secure a growth engine for global expansion thanks to the growth of the home training market caused by COVID-19.
These companies are planning to verify the competitiveness of Korean artificial intelligence companies and leap forward as global AI companies through CES 2022. It is significant in that it has solidified Korea’s status by developing AI services using data planned and built by the people and introducing them to the global market.
Saltlux organized booths with a total of four themes: “Metahuman,” “Talkbot,” “AICC,” and “Deep Signal” at CES 2022. In particular, Deep Signal, a super-personalization solution, became the center of the topic in this exhibition. Deep Signal collects and delivers high-quality customized information from the world’s web in real-time through a multilingual super-large neural network that transcends language barriers.The lifelike Metahuman ‘ERIN’ also proved its advanced ability to produce interactive AI. Through this technology, expectations were raised for the expansion of the global market during this exhibition.
Meanwhile, the open AI Dataset Project organized by Ministry of Science and ICT and promoted by the National Information Society Agency will continue to build a total of 1,300 types of data by 2025. The project is acting as the growth driver of small and medium-sized artificial intelligence companies, venture companies, and startups in Korea by solving the difficulty of building high-cost and long-term data.
At the moment, 191 types of artificial intelligence training data can be easily downloaded by anyone with Korean nationality from AI-Hub website.
