  • Medipixel — Medipixel is a MedTech startup that aims to contribute to the improvement of the quality of human life by innovating the way we diagnose diseases and controlling surgical robots with the power of AI. Consisting of a group of AI experts in computer vision, deep learning, and reinforcement learning, Medipixel conducts research and product developmentfor lung cancer diagnosis and coronary intervention robots together with the best healthcare professionals in Korea such as Seoul Asan Medical Center. In November 2018, MediPixel won the championship in the QuickFire Challenge hosted by Johnson & Johnson. MediPixel currently offers three solutions for intervention surgeons:1. An AI Based Diagnosis Solution makes it possible for doctors to spot lesions while performing a coronary angiography, perform segmentation of the vessel in question within just one second and analyze the lesion’s status.2. A Guide & Planning Solution clearly visualizes the hidden part of the coronary artery to make doctors perform guidewire manipulation with more ease and confidence, which is quite useful especially in case of CTO. Furthermore, the solution frees doctors from the need to use contrast -- this is important because contrast can cause potentially fatal reactions in 5 to 10% of patients.3. An Automated Navigation Engine automates navigation through coronary arteries. Once the destination is reached, it controls a robotic unit by giving the most appropriate real-time commands in its existing situation, thus delivering devices such as guidewire to the destination in the most efficient way.We're open to any candidates who are excited to apply their knowledge and skill in deep learning to real-world medical data and surgery robots.

  • MangoBoost — Data Processing Unit (DPU) is a next-generation server accelerator designed to orchestrate various intra-server devices (e.g., CPU, GPU, SSD, NPU, NIC). By maximizing the datacenter’s overall performance and cost efficiency, DPU is now considered as the most important HW/SW solution to realize the next-generation extreme-scale AI serverinfrastructure.

Our DPU HW is fully composable by integrating its rich set of DPU features to construct our customer-optimal DPUs. At the same time, our DPU SW enables to seamlessly deploy the solution to any customer environment. As a result, our DPU solutions are considered very promising to realize the next-generation AI/datacenter infrastructure, and thus they are currently evaluated at various global-leading companies. MangoBoost was founded in early 2022 to commercialize 7 year of top-tier DPU research outcomes achieved at Seoul National University (e.g., many full-system DPU prototypes, many ISCA/MICRO/ASPLOS/OSDI/ATC papers).
