Samsung launches AI research unit for semiconductor demand – reports

Samsung has launched its own AI research unit
under its device solutions division aimed at conducting research and creating AI
technologies designed to enhance the semiconductor manufacturing process.

The division, according
to sources
cited by The Korea Herald, is not yet fully operational but will
be led by Shim Eun-soo, a former head of AI software research at the Samsung
Advanced Institute of Technology. Samsung Electronics is now in the process of
scouting for AI researchers with doctorates from universities including the
University of Tokyo and the State University of New York, the report added.

The company’s bets in artificial intelligence
continue. In
, Samsung announced plans to increase its efforts in AI and 5G to
drive innovation across its business. During an AI forum held at the company’s
R&D Center, Samsung’s head of IT and mobile communications, Koh Dong-jin,
said: “In a hyperconnected society via 5G, AI and Internet of Things, a company
that innovates user experiences will be a global business leader. 5G, AI will
lay the ground for technology innovations for smartphones, wearables, speakers,
Internet of Things, augmented reality and virtual reality, and provide a
turning point for our everyday lives.”

In July,
Samsung researchers successfully managed to develop an AI that
generates realistic 3D renders of video scenes. The researchers, in a
paper detailing the neural network behind AI, explained the inefficient
process of creating virtual scenes in the modern day. Result of a 3D
scene created by the AI showed that such a solution could one-day help
game development, especially video game counterparts of movies that are
already being filmed.
