Lee of the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) chaired the 3rd 'Top-level
Strategic Dialogue on Artificial Intelligence Semiconductors' at NHN Cloud in
Pangyo and presented a commencement report for the first phase of the 'K-Cloud
Project' on June 26.
Project' is a policy to strengthen domestic cloud competitiveness by developing
world-class ultra-high-speed and low-power domestic AI semiconductors and
applying them to data centers. The government announced the "K-Cloud
Promotion Plan Utilizing Domestic AI Semiconductors" in December last
MSIT will invest a
total of 826.2 billion won from 2023 to 2030 to upgrade domestic AI
semiconductors in three stages (NPU → low-power PIM → ultra-low-power PIM), and
also promote a demonstration project to provide cloud-based AI services by
applying them to data centers step by step via this plan.
"In order for
the use of AI, including ultra-large language models, a significant number of
semiconductor chips are required to operate, and global companies are competing
fiercely to create high-performance and low-power AI semiconductors optimized
for AI computation," said Minister Lee. In addition, “we will spare no
effort to help Korea secure world-class AI semiconductor technology by
leveraging our memory semiconductor capabilities to advance AI semiconductors
in stages by 2030, developing additional to apply them to data centers, and
fostering AI semiconductor experts," added Minister Lee.
