NTT DOCOMO, INC.— Japan's leading mobile operator— is set to revolutionize AI innovation with SAPEON, a global AI semiconductor company backed by South Korea's SK Group. This strategic collaboration, facilitated through DOCOMO Innovations, INC., marks a significant milestone in the advancement of the artificial intelligence landscape.

Pioneering AI Solutions

Focused on enhancing internal operations, cutting costs, and driving innovation, the partnership aims to accelerate the development of pioneering AI solutions. Through an extensive exploration of applications such as large language models (LLMs), image and video processing, and computer vision AI, both NTT DOCOMO and SAPEON will undertake Proof of Concept (PoC) initiatives to solidify their advancements.

Yoshikazu Akinaga, President and CEO of DOCOMO Innovations said, “As a leader in technological innovation, DOCOMO Innovations is committed to embracing new platforms and an open approach, enabling us to persistently push the envelope and innovate in order to provide our customers with unparalleled solutions. We are diligently evaluating SAPEON’s technology and are excited about the potential collaboration with them to pioneer a new generation in the AI world.”

The Importance of AI Semiconductors

As part of this initiative, DOCOMO Innovations has begun testing SAPEON's recently launched AI semiconductor, the X330, which allows them to test customized models and large language models (LLMs). This comes after testing the SAPEON X220, which has proven to be highly efficient. SAPEON 'X330' is an AI semiconductor for data centers that outperforms SAPEON’s current product (the X220) by more than four times and saves more than twice as much power.

AI semiconductors play a pivotal role in advancing cutting-edge services that have far-reaching implications across various industries. These semiconductors are instrumental in enhancing critical functions like voice recognition, converting conversations to text, and automating responses. In healthcare, they enable more accurate diagnostics and personalized treatment plans, while in finance and insurance, they enhance fraud detection and risk assessment capabilities.

Moreover, in call centers, AI semiconductors facilitate more efficient and personalized customer interactions, ultimately leading to improved customer satisfaction and operational efficiency. Overall, the development and deployment of AI semiconductors represents a significant technological leap that empowers industries to harness the full potential of artificial intelligence, revolutionizing the way businesses operate and deliver services.
