15 November 2013

The Samsung Group selected ice chemistry and next-generation computing cells as its first set of future technology research items for the creative economy policy of the government. 

The group announced on November 14 that it selected a total of 27 items for the purpose through an impartial judging process led by its review committee staffed with renowned scholars from both at home and abroad. Specifically, these are divided into 12 in the basic science fields including ice chemistry, seven in material technologies including optical materials not containing rare-earth metals, and eight in the information and communications sector including next-generation computing cells imitating cranial nerves. 

The announcement is a follow-up measure of its Future Technology Development Program, which was approved back in August. The company is planning to invest 1.5 trillion won (US$1.41 billion) in the three sectors for 10 years to come. 

In the basic science category, novel and innovative items such as ice chemistry and homology-based studies have been selected, while the development of photonic materials capable of improving luminous efficiency without using rare-earth metals is scheduled to be in progress in the materials segment. Also, in the ICT category, anti-stimulant nerve imitation elements and neuromorphic processors using them will be researched down the road. The company will receive applications for the second phase of the program until December 20, before a document examination in January next year.
