Recently, the Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association held an annual meeting, and Cai Mingjie, chairman of MediaTek, hosted the Artificial Intelligence Forum. Cai Mingjie said that AI will have a huge impact on human life and work. In the future, with the increasing demand for data calculus, the development of semiconductor technology will be an important propeller for artificial intelligence, and the key to implementing smart technology in various fields.
The guests included: Liu Deyin, Chairman of TSMC, and Wei Zhejia, President of Taiwan, Chen Liangji, Minister of Science and Technology of Taiwan, Kong Xiangzhong, Academician of Taiwan Academia Sinica, Zhang Yizhen, Vice President of Microsoft Research Asia, and Jane Lifeng, Managing Director of Google Taiwan, to discuss the future of AI prospect.
When introducing the words, Cai Mingjie pointed out that AI will have a tremendous impact on human work and life. In the future, human beings will coexist with artificial intelligence and grow into a new era of working together. According to the definition of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the first wave of AI applications is an expert system, and the second wave will progress to a deep learning neural network, which can perform various classification and prediction tasks from accumulated big data; The three-wave AI will have the ability to understand and reason, and the human-machine cooperation relationship will be deepened.
With the continuous evolution of artificial intelligence technology and the surge in demand for related data calculus capabilities, Cai Mingjie also cited the US “Electronic Renaissance Plan” as an example, pointing out that the world’s leading countries did not dare to neglect in this game by strengthening IC semiconductor technology. Innovative R&D, striving for a leading position in the development of AI, proves that the development of semiconductor technology is an important propeller for artificial intelligence generation, and also the key to implementing intelligent technology in various fields.
Chen Liangji said that the development of AI has considerable difficulties and challenges. No matter the algorithm, data quality and computing architecture, there are many difficulties to be solved. Therefore, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan promoted Taiwan’s homemade AI supercomputer “Taiwan’s No.2” and launched the “Semiconductor Shooting Plan”, which is the effort and contribution towards AI.
Kong Xiangzhong puts forward the advanced views of the top academic community on the AI calculus architecture, and provides a more energy-efficient AI operation with a better design structure. Zhang Yizhen believes that the industrial digital transformation has a huge impact on the entire semiconductor industry chain. .
