Episode 33: Data-Centric Computer Vision, Productizing AI, and Scaling a Global Startup with Hyun Kim
About the episode:
Hyun Kim is the co-founder and CEO of Superb AI, an ML DataOps platform that helps computer vision teams automate and manage the entire data pipeline: from ingestion and labeling to data quality assessment and delivery. He initially studied Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering at Duke but shifted from genetic engineering to robotics and deep learning. He then pursued a Ph.D. in computer science at Duke with a focus on Robotics and Deep Learning but ended up taking leave to further immerse himself in the world of AI R&D at a corporate research lab. During this time, he started to experience the bottlenecks and obstacles that many companies still face to this day: data labeling and management were very manual, and the available solutions were nowhere near sufficient.
