The company said it had appointed Kim young-han, a professor at the University of California San Diego, as senior vice President and principal investigator of its data science laboratory.SK hynix, by recruiting Kim, is looking to apply artificial intelligence technology to the company's operating system to boost productivity.
Dr. Kim graduated from Stanford university with a PhD in electrical engineering and is a renowned data science expert.In 2015, he was also appointed a fellow of the institute of electrical and electronics engineers (IEEE), the world's largest association of professional technicians.In 2008, he received the national science foundation award for new academic career development, and in 2012 he received the IEEE award for information theory papers.
In the data research division, SK hynix has also established an affiliate called the machine intelligence and data analysis solutions (MIDAS) laboratory, which will be responsible for developing an ai-based company operating system.
SK hynix explains the importance of improving its ai based machine learning capabilities and deep learning technologies to improve productivity.
"There is a growing demand for technologies that can handle large amounts of data because recent chip manufacturing processes require higher levels of micromachining," a company official said.
