Deep Block is excited to announce its participation in the upcoming edition of VivaTech, an esteemed event held at Porte de Versailles in Paris from June 14th to 17th. During the event, Deep Block will proudly showcase its state-of-the-art AI model training MLOps platform at the K-STARTUP Pavilion (Booth G38), a special space organized in collaboration between KISED and VivaTech.
This year, Korea has been designated as the "Country of the Year" at VivaTech 2023, Europe's largest startup event. The Ministry of SMEs and Startups, led by Minister Lee Young, has forged a partnership with Viva Technology 2023 to highlight Korea's innovative prowess and create a global wave of K-STARTUP. It is a strategic initiative to propel the country's vibrant startup ecosystem onto the international stage. Seoul, ranking 10th among 280 cities in terms of dynamic startup ecosystems, and Korea, with its 10th position in the number of unicorn companies worldwide, truly epitomize the spirit of innovation. Minister Lee also emphasized the Korean government's proactive policies aimed at facilitating the global expansion of Korean startups.
As the honored "Country of the Year," Korea and its participating startups will enjoy exceptional opportunities at VivaTech. They will have a prominent presence in the exhibition, deliver keynote speeches, participate in major programs and pitching events, and benefit from extensive media promotion.
During VivaTech, Omnis Labs will showcase its innovative SaaS solution Deep Block. Deep Block is the world's fastest Geospatial MLOps platform. Using cutting-edge AI algorithms, geospatial specialists can analyze remote sensing imagery at an unprecedented scale by easily training and deploying machine learning models, without any coding required.
Why Deep Block?Every day,commercial imaging companies collect petabytes of Earth Observation data. The challenge is that there aren't enough people on earth, not even experts, to go through this wealth of information to monitor key areas, detect changes over time, or anticipate potential threats.
Recent advancements in AI and deep learning have made it possible toautomate 80% of geospatial analysis tasks, allowing analysts to focus on what really requires their expertise and reducing decision-making time.
However,only 53% of AI projects make it from prototypes to productiondue to the difficulties in scaling AI projects. CIOs and IT leaders face many obstacles in creating and managing a production-grade AI pipeline. Building in-house AI capabilities requires substantial investment and expertise, and developing and testing AI models takes considerable time before final deployment. Additionally, finding AI engineers, data analysts, and computer vision experts can be a challenge. Even if the team and infrastructure are in place, training high-performing AI models can be difficult due to the large amount of data labeling required, particularly for edge cases.
Deep Block delivers aproduction-grade AI pipeline that facilitates the deployment of high-performing Machine Learning models (MLOps) in days instead of months. On top of a library of pre-trained models, AI experts and amateurs alike can train and use their own computer vision algorithms, without any coding knowledge required.
KISED, the Korea Institute of Startup & Entrepreneurship Development, plays a crucial role in fostering the growth of startup businesses and generating employment opportunities to contribute to the development of the South Korean economy. With a steadfast focus on cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit, KISED actively supports future-oriented, technology-based startups.
