LG Energy Solution hires scientist from Nvidia
“Pyun will head the company’s digital transformation,” LG Energy Solution said Monday.
“He will also be responsible for transitioning the company’s global factories into smart factories on the back of his experience at Nvidia.
Pyun worked as one of five Principle Data Scientists at U.S. artificial intelligence company Nvidia, leading the company's development of technology related to autonomous vehicles and cloud services.
The Seoul National University graduate is known to have contributed to upgrading Nvidia's factories, according to LG Energy Solution.
“I will work to contribute in LG Energy Solution’s growth and development of Korea’s manufacturing industry,” Pyun said.
LG Energy Solution CEO Kwon Young-soo said last month it plans to deploy smart manufacturing in its global factories to reduce defect rates of its batteries. Manufacturing defects led to a number of recalls last year.
Last year, LG Energy Solution partnered with Siemens to adapt smart factory technology at its joint venture Ultum Cells’ factories.
