The Ministry of Science of Technology (MOST) of Taiwan launched a multi-year, US$132 million, nationwide Semiconductor Moonshot Project in 2018. The goal of the Semiconductor Moonshot Project is to challenge the key technology limits of AI edge, embrace the growth era of AI, cultivate AI talents, and create new value for Taiwan. The project includes six areas: 1) Innovative Sensing Devices, Circuits, and Systems, 2) Next-Generation Memory Design, 3) Cognitive Computing and AI Chips, 4) IoT System and Security for Intelligent Edge, 5) Component, Circuit, and System Designs for Unmanned Vehicle System and AR/VR Application, and 6) Emerging Semiconductor Processes, Materials, and Device Technology. In the first phase, 20 teams from major universities in Taiwan were funded. There are about 1950 M.S. & Ph.D. students involved. Up to now, the project has generated more than 1300 high-level academic papers, 6 start-ups, and 47 technology transfers to enterprises. The Taiwan Semiconductor Research Institute (TSRI) facilitates device fabrication and provides design platforms for chip implementation.
