A group of world-renowned scholars, researchers from Samsung Electronics and industry experts will come together to share their insights into the future of artificial intelligence at Samsung AI Forum 2022.
Now in its sixth year, the Samsung AI Forum will be held from November 8 to 9 (KST). This is the first time in three years that the event will be held live. With more than 1,200 participants expected to attend, this global forum offers programs organized by the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT).1 November 8 and Samsung Research2 On the 9th of November.
The event will also be streamed live on Samsung Electronics’ YouTube Channel.
Day One: Creating the Future with AI and Semiconductors
Under the theme “Shaping the Future with AI and Semiconductor”, AI experts gathered to discuss the future direction of AI research that will create new milestones in AI-based semiconductor and material innovation.
The day started with an opening speech by Jong-Hee (JH) Han, Executive Vice President and Head of Device eXperience (DX) at Samsung Electronics. “I expect AI technology to provide convenience and new experiences for all, while also laying the groundwork for other key innovations in various sectors and applications, including mid-generation devices,” Han said. The latter, too.
Professor Yoshua Bengio of the University of Montreal, Canada shares his latest research in a keynote presentation, “Why We Need Amortized, Causal and Bayesian World Models.” He emphasized the use of depreciation and Bayesian methods in causal models for AI, which explores design theory and design experiments in science and general AI.
Then, technology courses such as “AI for R&D Innovation”, “Recent Advances in AI Algorithms” and “Large-Scale Computing for AI and HPC” are offered.
In the “AI for R&D Innovation” session, SAIT research director, including Executive Vice President and President of SAIT AI Research Center, Changkyu Choi shared the status and vision of Samsung’s research on AI. In particular, they discussed how AI technology will have an impact in various fields, including electronics and material development.
In a session entitled “Recent Advances of AI Algorithms,” Minjoon Seo, a professor at KAIST, and Hyunoh Song, a professor at Seoul National University, presented the latest research achievements on AI algorithms, including a large language interface for Ultra-literal search.
Finally, in an episode entitled “Large Scale Computing for AI and HPC”, leading researchers on modern computing, including former IBM and Intel Fellow Alan Gara, discussed the role of AI in the future of computing. High efficiency. They also introduced a clever case on memory processing, an innovative technology that was launched by the development of the next generation of modern computers.
The Samsung AI Researcher of the Year Awards, designed to find emerging researchers in the AI field, was also featured at the forum. The Samsung AI Researcher of the Year was awarded to five AI researchers, including Professor Mohit Iyyer at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
In addition, various programs, including posters of fine research papers, SAIT introductions, exhibitions of its research projects, and networking events for researchers and students in the field of AI, were held to accelerate active research in AI.
Day 2: Scale AI for the real world
Under the theme “Scaling AI for the Real World”, the second day of the forum, organized by Samsung Research, will be a place to share future development directions of AI technologies that will have a profound impact on our lives, including AI. Advanced digital humans, robots. Etc. that have become a hot topic.
Sebastian Seung, President and Chief Research Officer of Samsung, will give a keynote address on “First Steps of Efforts to Improve Ancient Brain Theory by Improving Biological Uncontrollable Learning Algorithms” Welcome.
Following a presentation on “Current Status of AI Research by Samsung Research” given by Daniel D. Lee, Executive Vice President and President of Global AI Center at Samsung Research, AI experts, including the recently President of the Global Research Center Acting recently. Research will be invited to participate as a speaker.
Professor Terrence Sejnowski of the University of California, San Diego, USA, who discovered NeurIPS, the world’s most prestigious AI conference, will discuss the intelligence of hyperscale language models based on experimental cases that test whether hyperscale language patterns are valid. Wise or not.
This will be followed by the introduction of next-generation AI research directions for ensuring responsible and fair use of advanced AI in business products and services, presented by Dr. Johannes Gehrke, Head of Microsoft Research.
Professor Dieter Fox of the University of Washington, D.C., then senior director of robotics research at NVIDIA, will explain how robots can process unlearned objects directly based on visual data without having to create them. 3D modeling. He will also discuss how to use natural language commands to guide the robot to perform various operations effectively.
Finally, Seungwon Hwang, a professor at Seoul National University, will discuss how to use reason, evidence, and other forms of knowledge to reinforce a larger language model.
There will be two live discussions facilitated by EVP Daniel Lee, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, in which participants will discuss various topics. There will also be a Lightning Talk session where researchers at the Global AI Center will give a detailed presentation of their current research.
In the Lightning Talks session, Vice President Joohyung Lee at Global AI Center will discuss how to use advanced AI models to combine the digital look of the human with inner intelligence. SangHa Kim will also explain machine translation technology that allows users to use various Samsung products without language barriers.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to view a variety of research presentations and posters produced by the Global AI Center at the booth where they can interact directly with researchers.
In addition, on the forum website, speakers and participants can communicate freely in Korean and English on the Q&A board., Where Samsung Research Translation Services “SR Translate” Is applied.
