Samsung Electronics has announced its intention to intensively invest in the industry associated with neural processors designed for further development of technologies related to artificial intelligence. One of the promising areas the company called the creation of a neuromorphic processor that works like a human brain.
Neural processors — semiconductor solutions, on the principle of data processing comparable to the human brain and capable of performing large-scale parallel operations. Samsung introduced its first NPU integrated into the exynos 9820 mobile chipset last year. Today, the company announced plans to expand the scope of its own developments in the field of artificial intelligence. The South Korean giant plans to create more than 2,000 AI-related jobs by 2030.
"As the era of artificial intelligence advances, Samsung is striving to achieve industry-leading results with our innovations in neural modules. Since we use differentiated technologies, work closely with global institutions and actively invest in the best staff, we look forward to the opportunity in the future with the help of AI to bring the data processing to a new level," said Inup Kang, President of System LSI at Samsung Electronics.
Further development of neuroprocessors the company connects with infotainment and control systems of cars and data centers of new generation for processing of large data sets. The company also intends to continue active implementation of artificial intelligence algorithms in mobile chipsets. System LSI Business and Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology intend to join forces to develop hardware neuromorphic CPU, comparable to the capabilities of the human brain.
