The AI Research Engineer is expected to be familiar with current machine learning technologies and have experience with the design and implemention of AI applications for production. We are currently building up the development team to prepare for the product launch and recruiting the first core members. The team mainly consists of international group of staff in their 20's and 30's with an open environment.  

Why PidPort? 

Globally, there is a severe shortage of pathologists, doctors who specialize in visually analyzing samples from tissues of a patient under the microscope to diagnose diseases and cancers. The turnaround time to obtain diagnostic results can take weeks, which causes tremendous mental stress to the patients and diseases to worsen. With our AI-driven product, PidPort, pathologists can now obtain a pathologic diagnosis in approximately 30 seconds with a 98% diagnostic accuracy. Pathologists and advisors from all over the world are collaborating to develop our product. Our product demonstration will soon begin at both domestic and international university hospitals. Currently, we are expanding our operation and organization to prepare for the official launch of our product. In the future, we envision PidPort to become a leader in the pathology space for both developed and developing countries.
