CSET: Assessing South Korea’s Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem

‘Should chip funds go to chaebols or underdogs? In South Korea, the question has taken on partisan undertones.’

South Korea’s semiconductor industry first made a name for itself through memory chips. Korea manufactures a staggering 44 percent of these chips that computers use for internal storage. Since then, the country has advanced in other chip segments as well. Notably, South Korea accounts for 8 percent of global sub-10 nanometer (the most advanced) logic chipmaking, with only Taiwan competing with South Korea in that space.

Samsung & semiconductors:
“…once TSMC joins us in the race for two-nanometre technology, Samsung will lead the way. Within five years, we can surpass TSMC.”
