Seoul Robotics Recognized as Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum
Irvine, CA, May 10, 2022 – Seoul Robotics, the 3D perception solution company using deep learning AI to power the future of autonomy, today was announced as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers” for 2022. The company was selected among hundreds of candidates for its contributions in the mobility and robotics space. Founded in 2017, Seoul Robotics is democratizing 3D computer vision. By making 3D systems more accessible to public and private sectors, Seoul Robotics aims to make our spaces and cities smarter, safer, and more efficient.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the use of new technologies and innovation that are poised to have a significant impact on business and society. With their selection as Technology Pioneer, Seoul Robotics CEO HanBin Lee will be invited to participate at World Economic Forum activities, events and discussions throughout the year. Seoul Robotics will also contribute to Forum initiatives over the next two years, working with global leaders to help address key industry and societal issues.
“We’re excited to welcome Seoul Robotics to our 2022 cohort of Technology Pioneers,” says Saemoon Yoon, Community Lead, Technology Pioneers, World Economic Forum. “Seoul Robotics and its fellow pioneers are at the forefront of industries that are critical to solving some of our world’s most complex issues today.
