S.Korea kicks off AI strategy talks with Naver, Kakao, Samsung, telcos

Korea joins the global race for artificial superintelligence by putting together all public and private resources

www.kedglobal.com, Sept. 08, 2021 – 

South Korean government has hosted the first top-level artificial intelligence (AI) roundtable meeting with representatives from the country's tech giants and telecom companies.

The Ministry of Science and ICT on Sept. 7 held the first series of CEO-level AI strategy talks with chief executives Han Seong-sook of Naver Corp., Yeo Min-soo of SK Telecom Co., Koo Hyun-mo of KT Corp. and Hwang Hyun-sik of LG Uplus. Samsung Electronics Co.'s Global AI Center chief Daniel Lee was also present at the meeting.

"AI is an all-purpose technology that will largely determine a country's competitiveness in the areas of economy and national security. South Korea, which lacks the amount of data and computing infrastructure compared to China and the US, must concentrate all resources under a strategic public-private alliance," said the Ministry of Science and ICT's head of AI policy bureau Song Kyung-hee.

Public-private partnerships in the AI sector has been active in the US as well. The country in 2018 established the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) as an advisory committee to the President and Congress. The NSCAI, currently headed by the former Google CEO Eric Schmidt with Amazon and Oracle chiefs as members, submitted a report to the Congress in March recommending the US to ramp up non-national security AI R&D expenditure from $1.5 billion in 2021 to $32 billion by 2026.
