2013, First Encounter with AI

Daeho delved deep into Deep-learning as soon as Kiyoung asked for his expertise on securing and expanding IP rights in AI for his startup.

2019, Proven IP Leaders in AI

In 2019, SUALAB was acquired by a leading U.S. manufacturer of machine vision systems at the highest price in the M&A history of Korean IT startups.
