Kakao Brain (Representatives Kim Il-doo, Kim Byung-hak) and Ajou University Hospital (Director Park Joon-seong) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of a medical image diagnosis support solution and advanced AI model using ultra-large AI.
Kakao Brain and Ajou University Hospital will jointly promote the establishment of research infrastructure necessary for data learning in medical imaging, advanced AI model enhancement through medical consultation and academic exchange, and performance evaluation of ultra-large AI models for technology commercialization.
Ajou University Hospital, as a medical institution providing the best medical services to patients with severe illnesses and trauma in the Gyeonggi region, will support Kakao Brain’s AI technology research and model development. Additionally, Kakao Brain and Ajou University Hospital have agreed to collaborate on verifying a medical diagnosis support solution based on an ultra-large AI model, aiming to jointly develop a medical image solution based on the world’s largest ultra-large AI model.
Director Lim Hyun of Ajou University Medical Center’s Planning and Coordination Office (also in charge of External Cooperation) stated, “This agreement will be a crucial turning point for Ajou University Hospital, which aims to establish a patient-centered smart hospital infrastructure, maximizing the capabilities of AI medical technology beyond big data through collaboration with Kakao Brain, which possesses competitiveness in the AI field.
