SEOUL, Nov. 15 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. held an artificial intelligence (AI) forum in China on Thursday, unveiling its latest semiconductor and display solutions to potential business partners in Asia's No. 1 economy.
The South Korean tech giant said around 500 representatives from major Chinese IT firms, such as Baidu, Xiaomi and Hikvision, as well as other Chinese startups attended the event.
During the forum, Samsung introduced various memory solutions such as High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) 2 dynamic random access memory (DRAM), which can be used for AI systems, and the 256GB DRAM module optimized for big data and storage systems.
