Published

on

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Aitomatic today announced SemiKong, the world’s first open-source AI Large Language Model (LLM) designed specifically for the semiconductor industry. Unveiled at SEMICON West 2024, SemiKong aims to revolutionize semiconductor processes and fabrication technology, potentially reshaping the $500B semiconductor industry in the next five years.

SemiKong is the world’s first open-source AI Large Language Model designed specifically for the semiconductor industry.

SemiKong is the result of a collaborative effort within the AI Alliance, an industry-wide initiative promoting open and responsible AI development. Built upon the open-source Llama3 model from Meta, an AI Alliance member, SemiKong leverages expertise from leading semiconductor companies, including Tokyo Electron, and AI specialists like FPT Software. This approach exemplifies the AI Alliance’s commitment to open science and cross-industry innovation.

In industry-specific tasks, SemiKong demonstrates marked improvements in accuracy, relevance, and understanding of semiconductor processes, often outperforming larger general-purpose models. This performance boost offers potential for accelerated innovation and reduced costs across the semiconductor value chain.

Dr. Christopher Nguyen, CEO of Aitomatic, leader behind the SemiKong project, and Co-Lead of the Foundation Models Focus Area in the AI Alliance, stated: “SemiKong is set to redefine semiconductor manufacturing. This open innovation model, enabled by the AI Alliance, harnesses collective expertise for industry-specific challenges. At Aitomatic, we’re using SemiKong to create Domain-Specific AI Agents that tackle complex fabrication problems with unprecedented effectiveness.”

Dr. Yann LeCun, VP and Chief AI Scientist at Meta, the company behind Llama3 and a member of the AI Alliance, added, “SemiKong, built on Llama3, shows open-source AI’s potential to drive specialized innovation. It’s a prime example of why we advocate for AI openness.”

Atsushi Suzuki, Director of Product Lifecycle Management DX at Tokyo Electron and AI Alliance member, highlighted: “As an industry expert collaborating through the AI Alliance, I believe SemiKong represents a significant step forward in applying AI to semiconductor manufacturing.”

Daisuke Oku, Senior Specialist at Tokyo Electron and an early proposer of a Semiconductor Industry Model, added: “SemiKong is the beginning of an exciting journey in open-source AI for semiconductors. Aitomatic’s innovative approach has the potential to create huge leaps for our industry.”

Dr. Phong Nguyen, Chief AI Officer of FPT Software, noted: “FPT Software is excited to be part of this innovative initiative and eager to explore the potential applications of this model, especially to spark the convergence of global AI and Semiconductor. We are confident that our participation will reinforce our position as a frontrunner in shaping the future of the global semiconductor industry.”

As SemiKong drives down semiconductor production costs, consumers could see more powerful smartphones, laptops, and smart home devices at lower prices within the next few years.

Aitomatic, Tokyo Electron, and FPT Software are all AI Alliance members. Founded in 2023, the AI Alliance builds, enables, and advocates for open innovation across the AI technology landscape, including software, data and models, safety, security and trust, tooling, evaluation, hardware, education, open science, and advocacy.

SemiKong was developed as one of AI Alliance core projects addressing substantial cross-community challenges and providing an opportunity for individual contributors and members to collaborate, build, and make an impact on the future of AI.

Dr. Anthony Annunziata, IBM Director of AI Open Innovation and AI Alliance Engagement, commented: “This work exemplifies how The AI Alliance’s mission of open collaboration can bring together diverse expertise to drive advancement in applying AI to critical industries like semiconductor manufacturing.”

SemiKong will be available for download on HuggingFace and GitHub. It serves as a foundation for companies to develop proprietary models while leveraging industry-wide knowledge. The next, more powerful version of SemiKong is planned for December 2024, with the first process-specific models expected by September 2024.

The collaborators are committed to ongoing R&D, aiming to build an ecosystem of AI tools that will propel the semiconductor industry into a new era of innovation and efficiency. This breakthrough could accelerate progress in fields from quantum computing to renewable energy technologies.

Youth Power: Foreign Youth Embrace China’s Economic Prospects

Published

on

By

BEIJING, July 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In the latest episode of China Daily’s Youth Power, which aired on June 30, Jan Kerekes, a Canadian who has lived in South China’s Hainan province for six years, shared what led him to settle down here.

Hainan is really opening up. The whole world comes here, and you see the opportunities right in front of you,” Kerekes said. “It is a place where you can pursue your dreams.”

Now a teacher at Hainan University, Andreev Aleksei, a 30-year-old Russian, found Kerekes’s story particularly resonant.

“When I went back to my country, I missed the island so much that I had to come back,” Aleksei said. “Hainan not only hosts the Boao Forum for Asia but it is also the best place for windsurfing and parachuting.”

To encourage international talent to come, Hainan has introduced 16 measures to streamline living and working conditions for foreigners.

For example, Aleksei mentioned that Hainan offers numerous benefits and advantageous policies to assist global talents in establishing businesses in the region.

“[The application process] takes just three days, and it can be completed entirely online, even for foreigners,” he said.

The young guests visited the Haikou Municipal Government Service Center to learn more about these measures. There, they met people from around the world with different needs — whether for visas, education, or business.

“I think it’s a testament to the inclusivity of the entire province,” said Jood Ghazwan Sharaf, a 27-year-old Bulgarian student at Tsinghua University.

Dylan Walker, 27, from the United States, was impressed by the efficiency of the “one window for all” system.

“It’s like a one-stop service,” he said. “You don’t have to run all over the place.”

In addition to aiding tourists and residents in their daily lives and business activities, Hainan has made significant economic progress.

One notable example is the Yangpu Economic Development Zone, which has evolved from a small port into Hainan’s largest international port.

In the zone, the young guests explored the Yangpu Offshore Wind Power Industrial Park, where they discovered Hainan’s commitment to developing its marine economy and striving for a harmonious coexistence with the ocean.

According to Lin Qingsong, the park’s general manager, while Hainan’s wind power utilization is still in its early stages, this project stands out as a pioneering model for future large-scale offshore wind power initiatives.

“We can see that China is not an economy that goes within itself. It goes outward to benefit the rest of humanity,” Sharaf said, impressed by China’s innovative economic experiments.

As a global resident of Hainan, Aleksei believes that this island is not only a dynamic free trade model but also a natural paradise that strikes a balance between work and leisure.

“This is quite a unique place in China,” Aleksei said. “No matter what purpose brings you here, whether it’s tourism, starting a business, or work, just come here, and you will fall in love with it.”

Faith In Young Champions: Hisense Partners with UEFA Foundation to Bring the Beautiful Game to Hospitalized Children

Published

on

By

QINGDAO, China, July 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — During the EURO 2024 tournament, the global home appliance and consumer electronics brand Hisense and the UEFA Foundation jointly launched “Faith In Young Champions,” a public welfare initiative. Innovative robots powered by Hisense enabled hospitalized children from 22 countries to virtually connect with 23 EURO 2024 matches, fulfilling their dreams of attending the event despite physical limitations.

During these periods, children can employ the robot to gain entry into exclusive areas, such as the warm-up zone, locker room or VIP section, directing interaction with their beloved players or teams, so that every football-loving soul can express the purest passion of live football in this way.

As part of its commitment to improving the lives of children, Hisense wants to leverage user-centric technology and social responsibility worldwide. For this remarkable occasion, Hisense supported state-of-the-art commercial products like interactive displays to a hospital in South Africa, and the children had the enriching opportunity to learn how this technology works through interactive activities with the help of volunteers. Also, hospital can use that in their daily office, meeting or discussion, making their working processes more electronic and convenient. 

“We gladly accept the digital board and it will go a very long way to share ideas and brain storm with the directors, doctors and management teams of the hospital, this digital version will make life so much easier.” According to the manager of hospital.

UEFA Foundation was founded in 2015 as a charitable organization governed under Swiss law, with a long-standing philosophy that aligns with the concepts of youth care and social responsibility of Hisense. During the EURO 2024 tournaments, fans also noticed “BECAUSE EVERY CHILD IS A CHAMPION” slogan on the LED board at the pitch side, which perfectly coincides with the “Faith In Young Champions” proposal called upon by Hisense this year, also making the collaboration more possible.

Carine Nkoue, General Secretary of the UEFA Foundation, said, “Football is not only the number one sport in the world but is also a great platform to create solidarity projects for those in need. I would like to encourage all of you to join the activities of the UEFA Foundation for children and become a supporter of this global initiative. With Hisense’s support and the solidarity of the European football family, we can achieve even more.”

Engaging in charitable endeavors and fulfilling corporate social responsibility has long been a cornerstone of Hisense’s corporate culture. The company has proactively allocated resources towards public welfare initiatives with the concept of helping everyone enjoy every moment of life with user-centric technology.

Thanks to its global presence in the diversity industries, Hisense is empowered to take on a broad range of social responsibilities to enhance healthcare and education standards worldwide. Hisense exports ultrasound and other equipment to over 20 countries in Asia, Central and Eastern Africa, and Europe to meet a diverse range of those in needs. Hisense’s commercial display products have also gained market traction in over 40 countries, including Europe, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region.

For many years, Hisense has actively participated in public welfare activities initiated by world-class sports events. The collaboration this time is a spiritual inspiration to upgrade the CSR campaign from product sponsorship to beyond time and space.

Looking ahead, Hisense and UEFA Foundation will keep working to advance their philanthropic efforts and provide greater benefits to various regions around the world by leveraging their respective resources.
