If we were to pick an event in which artificial intelligence technology is universally known, we can talk about the Go game between Lee Sedol and AlphaGo. In simple terms, AI technology is a software implementation of various brain processes such as human reasoning ability, perception, and learning ability. It seems like a story from the distant future, but it is no longer the technology of the future, but our technology for living in the present, as it is breaking the limits of the traditional method and achieving dazzling performances.
1) Smart home system
It is also called so-called smart home technology, and AI is being combined with IOT to help various real life. It analyzes the living patterns of residents to create an environment that suits them, and also adjusts the internal temperature appropriately according to the external temperature. And in the past, we had to be satisfied with controlling the home appliances from the outside, but now we have reached the stage where AI automatically shuts off the gas stove and controls the home appliances by itself to create a comfortable environment in advance. In addition, if you enter a parking lot by grafting it to the parking system, there is a system in which AI technology can analyze information in advance and guide you to the nearest empty parking space to your residence.
2) Pursuing a disease-free life through new drug development
Until now, it has been said that, on average, more than 15 years have been required to develop a new drug. And it was an inefficient method for the cost and time invested, with a failure rate of 92%. However, as AI technology is applied, the time and cost required for data analysis can be greatly reduced, and it is said that it greatly contributes to increasing the probability of success. Artificial intelligence is expected to cut the period of new drug development by less than half as it not only completes the data that several dozen people have to search for for years in one day, but also helps find a clinical target group suitable for the development of a new drug based on medical records. there is.
3) AI and semiconductors
In the semiconductor market where Korea is strong, semiconductors with AI technology are emerging as an item with the key to the future. In particular, AI semiconductors can quickly analyze big data and can be applied in various ways, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) mentioned above, as well as autonomous vehicles, so if you want to lead the future industry, there is a saying that you should preempt AI semiconductors. Until now, the CPU processed tasks, while the AI semiconductor processes a large amount of data simultaneously.
Patent applications for semiconductors incorporating AI technology are exploding around the world. Among them, Korea ranked third. Based on neuromorphic technology, we must strive not to be left behind in the future technological hegemony competition. I briefly introduced this, but the global economy continues to change rapidly, and the leader in the semiconductor industry is highly likely to seize the world’s technological hegemony, so please take a careful look.
