South Korea pushes for AI semiconductors as global demand grows

techcrunch.com, Oct. 13, 2020 – 

The South Korean government has made no secret of its ambition to be a key player in the global artificial intelligence industry, including making the semiconductors powering AI functionalities.

This week, the country's information and communications technology regulator announced plans to develop up to 50 types of AI-focused system semiconductors by 2030, Yonhap News Agency reported. The government will be on the hunt for thousands of local experts to lead the new wave of innovation.

"The Korean economy highly relies on the export of semiconductor. We don't have a [big tech] company like Google, Amazon or Netflix. I think it is the reason why our government tries to support making AI chips. We have to focus on what we can do," said an engineer at Samsung electronics who asked to be anonymous.
