South Korean startup 42Maru Inc.’s Founder and CEO, D.K. Donghwan KIM, wanted to find ‘Answers’ to all the questions in the world. So, he took inspiration from his favorite science fiction book ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy’ and in 2015 founded the deep-semantic QA (Question-Answering) platform, which understands a user’s real intention in a question and derives a single answer from an extensive unstructured data.
