  • [Success Stories #01] JLK Inspection, a leading company of the medical AI industry


  •  

    Image deciphering technology and a medical engineering Ph.D. join forces 

     

     When JLK was first founded by CEO Kim Won-tae in 2014, the company specialized in display testing equipment that combined simple AI technologies and image deciphering technologies.

    In order to expand the company’s business areas, an AI team was created in 2015, and the company began working in earnest to develop medical AI solutions. 

     

    Around this same time, several key people joined JLK, including co-CEO and CTO Kim Dong-min, who has a Ph.D. in engineering from the University of Tokyo. Co-CEO Kim, who is responsible for MRI-related research, has extensive experience working with MRI-based brain data.




    Applying deep learning to medical video deciphering

     

    JLK has been commercializing its assets and producing business outcomes faster than any other medical AI firm in Korea. These business outcomes are being achieved by increasingly applying video processing, deep learning, and machine-learned technologies to the existing fields of medical video analysis and industrial X-ray security solutions. JLK’s portable medical devices are applied with technologies that make them as small and lightweight as possible, meaning that the results of AI-based medical video analysis can be viewed anytime, anywhere. The company is currently making headway in various international markets, including those in India, Laos, Myanmar, Kuwait, and China.

     

    The world’s largest number of AI medical analysis solutions 

     

    JLK was the first company in Korea to develop a total analysis solution for strokes (JBS-01K). Today, the company holds the world’ s largest number of AI medical analysis solutions, boasting 37 solutions that can be used to analyze 14 different body parts. The company’s all-in-one platform, AIHuB, is associated with 85 patents and is a modularized version of traditional diagnostic algorithms.

    A JLK spokesperson said, “The AI source technologies and algorithms realized through AIHuB are what set our technologies a cut above the rest.” 

     

    Proven global competitiveness as the winning bid for the CHAI tuberculosis screening project in Laos

     

     JLK first gained recognition in the global medical AI market through its participation in an open bid conducted by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) in late 2019 for a tuberculosis screening project in Laos. JLK won first place out of all the project bidders and was selected for the CHAI project (CHAI is a program associated with the Clinton Foundation, a non-governmental health organization founded by former US President Bill Clinton to help citizens of developing countries).


     JLK is also currently collaborating with Intel on a medical AI device that blends worksites using cutting-edge and remote technologies. A JLK spokesperson commented that the company has high expectations for the collaboration: “We hope to create a synergetic effect between Intel’s vision for computers, its AI solution development tool, OpenVINO, and JLK’s medical AI algorithm.”

     

    Born2Global Centre, a stepping stone for expanding into international markets 


     As an active participant of the Born2Global Centre program since 2017, JLK has benefitted from the Center’s services and largely attributes its successful expansion overseas to the center’s specialized consultation services. CEO Kim Won-tae explained, “Through the Born2Global Centre we were able to create a US subsidiary, which is essential for branching out into more countries.”JLK also received legal consultations from Born2Global Centre on issues related to establishing an overseas subsidiary as well as patents.




    From a medical AI company to a comprehensive AI company 

     

    JLK is currently working on obtaining certifications in Korea and other countries for its AI-based medical solutions. In the future, the company will continue to strengthen its technological prowess and business value as a means of dominating medical AI markets at home and overseas. Its goal is to become a world-class company, based on its unrivaled products, and to lead the digital transformation of the healthcare industry by building global cooperative networks.
