South Korea's SK Hynix to launch US chip plant in 2023: Sources

Al Jazeera

South Korea's SK Hynix aims to select a US site for its advanced chip packaging plant and break ground there around the first quarter of next year, two people familiar with the matter said, helping the United States to compete as China pours money into the burgeoning sector. The plant, whose estimated cost would be "several billions", would ramp up to mass production by 2025-26 and employ about 1,000 workers, one of the sources said, declining to be named because details about the plant have not been made public. It would likely be located near a university with engineering talent, the person said. The company is "hoping to make a selection of the site and break ground somewhere around the first quarter of next year", one of the people said. SK Group, South Korea's second-biggest conglomerate, owns memory chipmaker SK Hynix and announced the new plant last month as part of a $22bn US-based investment package in semiconductors, green energy and bioscience projects.

Crab-inspired artificial vision system works on land and underwater


There had been many previous attempts to develop cameras that mimic the eyes of insects, fish and other living creatures. However, development of artificial vision systems that can see both underwater and on land has apparently been pretty limited. Further, biomimetic cameras are usually restricted by their 180-degree field-of-view. Now, a team of scientists from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) and Seoul National University in Korea have developed a new artificial vision system with a 360-degree field-of-view that can work on amphibious machines. The team was inspired by the semi-terrestrial fiddler crab, which has a 3D omnidirectional field-of-view.

Tinder swipes left on the metaverse as company reports $10M quarterly loss from the effort

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Dating app Tinder has a message for the metaverse: it's not you, it's me. The company is reducing its commitment to moving into the much-touted virtual reality realm as it reels from an operating loss of $10 million in the most recent financial quarter. In February, 2021 Match Group bought South Korean company Hyperconnect for over $1.7 billion. At the time, top executives hyped the purchase as one that would see Match Group's various dating apps slide into DMs of the future metaverse thanks to Hyperconnect's live video and chat technologies. The metaverse, which has been highly pushed by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other Silicon Valley moguls, can include virtual reality and also augmented reality that would combine aspects of the physical and digital worlds.

South Korean AI Firm Raises Funds to Build Synthetic Data


South Korean artificial intelligence (AI) data company CNAI has raised $4.1 million to expand its markets. CNAI uses synthetic data to train corporate AI systems. According to Gartner, 60% of the data used for the development of analytics and AI projects will be synthetic by 2024, and will surpass the use of real data for training AI models by 2030. According to the startup, one of its AI models powered by synthetic data for a healthcare client improved the accuracy of gastric cancer diagnosis by 10%, compared to a model without such input. "Training AI models on synthetic data created by a generative model can be more effective than using real-world information," said Wonseop Lee, CNAI chief executive.

Machine Learning Can Help Diagnose Alcohol-Associated Hepatitis from Other Conditions


Acute cholangitis is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection that often is associated with gallstones. Symptoms include fever, jaundice, right upper quadrant pain, and elevated liver enzymes. While these may seem like distinctive, telltale symptoms, they are similar to those of a much different condition: alcohol-associated hepatitis. This challenges emergency department staff and other health care professionals who need to diagnose and treat patients with liver enzyme abnormalities and systemic inflammatory responses. New Mayo Clinic research finds that machine-learning algorithms can help health care staff distinguish the two conditions.

Building The Ultimate AI Mind


I interviewed nine of the most brilliant minds in the AI space. Each of them possesses a unique perspective, vastly different paths to the world of AI, and one-of-a-kind approaches and principles on how AI can be used ethically to bring about positive change. What if we were able to take beliefs, values, best processes, and experiences from each of them to create one singular AI mind? Would that mind create a roadmap leading us to the light we all seek?

AI-Enhanced License Plate Security Camera Leads the Industry


Florida-based IC Realtime has been an "industry insider" B2B provider of highly automated HD & 4K video camera systems for security and operations management. While carefully operating during pandemic shutdowns, chip shortages, and supply chain disruptions, the company has also been moving most manufacturing to South Korea and adding Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration to its cameras and recorder products. "South Korea and Japan make our key components now, and we are getting even better performance and reliability," according to company founder Matt Sailor. "Our dealers & integrators value dependable products. Rolling a truck or dispatching a tech when something fails wastes a lot of resources, so reliable operation is job #1 for us."
