Samsung Electronics Invests in Future Talent in AI and Computer Engineering

Samsung Electronics is committed to nurturing talented professionals in artificial intelligence (AI) and computer engineering. By investing in the development of young researchers, the company aims to strengthen its research capabilities for next-generation semiconductors and enhance its competitiveness in emerging sectors.

To support the activities of aspiring scientists and technologists, the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), Samsung’s R&D unit, has announced the Samsung AI and CE Challenge. The contest, now in its third year, is open to graduate and undergraduate students studying at local universities. This year, the competition has expanded to include computer engineering in addition to the existing AI field.

The challenge comprises four categories:
1. Image Recognition Technology for Autonomous Driving
2. Machine Learning Algorithms for Simulating Semiconductor Materials
3. Simultaneous Quantitative and Qualitative Evaluation of Camera Image Quality using AI Technology
4. Computing System Optimization for Large-Scale Language Model (LLM) Inference

Winners of the competition will receive mentoring sessions with Samsung’s research leaders in AI and computer engineering, providing an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas and showcase their research results. By engaging directly with Samsung’s technology leaders, the participants can expect to gain insights and expand their horizons in their respective fields.

SAIT aims to overcome the limitations of traditional R&D in diverse fields such as next-generation semiconductors, computer vision, and computing systems based on AI. The challenge is part of the institute’s broader efforts to strengthen the domestic ecosystem for AI and computer science research while discovering exceptional professionals.

By fostering close collaboration between academia and industry, Samsung anticipates that the event will generate new ideas and contribute to advancements in AI and computer engineering technologies. Participating students will have the opportunity to interact with Samsung’s technology leaders, creating a dynamic environment for knowledge exchange and innovation.

Students interested in participating can apply on SAIT’s website starting from Monday. The AI category will remain open until October 2, while the computer engineering category will extend until October 20. Winners will be announced at the end of October, with each category’s top prize-winning team receiving 10 million won ($7,444).
