Samsung AI Forum 2023: A Glimpse into the Future of AI-Powered Technology

Today, Samsung Electronics launched the Samsung AI Forum, where it disseminated the most recent findings in computer engineering (CE) and artificial intelligence (AI), advancing the company’s next-generation semiconductor technology. This is a two-day event; Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) sponsored the first day, and Samsung Research will host the second day on November 8 at the Samsung R&D campus in Seoul, Korea. The newest research findings in these fields that support Samsung’s next-generation semiconductor technology will be disclosed during this year’s event.

Day 1 of the seventh edition of the Samsung AI Forum, with over 1,000 delegates including prominent academics, industry professionals, researchers, and students, was held in the Suwon Convention Centre in Gyeonggi-do, Korea, with the topic of “large-scale AI for a better tomorrow.” Essentially, two main subjects were covered on the first day of the Samsung AI Forum 2023:

  1. large-scale computing for simulation and LLMs
  2. LLMs and the Transformation of AI for Industry

AI and CE were the themes that were discussed. In addition to exploring the potential applications of future computing in semiconductor processing, such as large simulation accelerated by machine learning, SAIT researchers shared their vision for how the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into all aspects of semiconductor manufacturing and development will transform the industry.

Samsung AI Forum speeches:

“Towards a Safe AI Scientist System” was the topic of Yoshua Bengio’s keynote talk. Bengio is a professor at the University of Montreal and a specialist in deep learning technologies. His invention is a secure AI machine learning approach that can stop large language models (LLM) from evolving into waste that their creators had not anticipated.

During his presentation, “Own your silicon,” Jim Keller, the CEO of AI semiconductor company Tenstorrent, presented the open instruction set architecture (ISA) RISC-V and underlined that RISC-V would open up new possibilities in next-generation AI through innovation in hardware structure design.

Also, Samsung held an awards ceremony for the Samsung AI Researcher Award and Samsung AI/CE Challenge winners at the event. The purpose of these awards is to recognize and celebrate young investigators, scholars, and recent graduates who are making significant contributions in their home countries. The following 5 AI researchers received the Samsung AI researcher of the year awards:

  1. Virginia Smith at Carnegie Mellon University
  2. Connor Coley at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  3. Jason Lee at Princeton University
  4. Emma Pierson at Cornell University
  5. Xiang Ren at the University of Southern California

Out of 410 teams, 1,481 students submitted their work for the Samsung AI/CE challenge, and 16 teams were chosen as the winners. A poster featuring top research papers and displays of AI and CE research projects was also provided by SAIT. In order to engage delegates in the crucial AI and CE ecosystems, networking programs were also created.

Kye Hyun Kyung, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics’ Device Solutions (DS) Division, said, “The spotlight has recently shifted toward generative AI technology, as it provides us the potential to unlock new solutions and address long-standing challenges. But the need for in-depth research on the safety, trustworthiness, and sustainability of AI is increasing at the same time.” About the event, Kyung added, “We expect this forum—where top global experts have gathered—will be a platform to discuss ways to create a brighter future through AI and semiconductor technologies.”
