Hyun Jin Bae Promedius Inc. | Co-founder & CEO

Dr. Hyun-Jin Bae obtained his Ph.D. in astrophysics at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. During his Ph.D. course, he conducted various studies related to supermassive black holes. After obtaining his degree, based on his experiences in big data analysis, image processing, and machine learning, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Medical Imaging and Intelligent Reality Laboratory (MI2RL) at Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea, and as a Research Fellow at the University of Ulsan College of Medicine. He conducted various medical A.I. related research such as medical image segmentation, diagnosis support, and image generation. He co-founded Promedius Inc., a medical A.I. startup in September 2019, and is currently serving as the CEO.

Medical AI: Beyond Supervised Learning

With the recent rapid development of deep learning technology, its use in the medical field is also increasing. In medicine, various software to assist medical staff, such as CAD (Computer Aided Diagnosis) and CDSS (Clinical Decision Support System), are used. To date, more than 50 A.I.-based medical devices (SaMD, Software as a Medical Device) are available in Korea with KFDA approval. However, due to the inherent limitations of supervised learning-based A.I., the use of A.I. solutions is being carried out in a very limited area.

As a next-generation medical A.I. startup, Promedius Inc. aims to solve the problems of medical imaging and overcome the limitations of existing supervised learning-based solutions by using next-generation artificial intelligence technologies including unsupervised learning.
