In terms of the intelligent chip industry, according to the CIC Report, technologies that are critical to the intelligent chip industry have become increasingly mature since the beginning of the 21st century. Intelligent chips have also been entering into consumers' daily lives at an increasing rate as components to mobile phones, personal computers, and smart TVs. Since 2017, driven by the demand from emerging industries such as AI, smartphones, IoT, 5G, cloud computing, smart healthcare, and security, the global chip industry has grown from US$274.5 billion in 2015 to US$333.4 billion in 2019. Growth is expected to continue at a CAGR of 7.5% per year, reaching US$515.7 billion by 2025 due to increasing downstream demand. Notably, the AI market has significantly benefitted from the development of IoT, cloud computing technology, and an increase in government investments. From a quantitative perspective, the scale of the core industry is expected to reach RMB 400 billion by 2025, representing an increase of RMB 350 billion from 2020 to 2025. The development of AI will be a significant driving force behind the monetization market for central processing algorithm solutions intended to optimize intelligent chip performance.
From the perspective of applications of VIYI's central processing algorithms in relation to intelligent chips, VIYI understands that AI — from cloud to edge or down to terminals — is inseparable from the ability for intelligent chips to efficiently execute "training" and "inference" computing tasks, which cannot occur unless the baseline software and hardware are optimized correctly. Moreover, industrial applications of intelligent chips are wide-ranging and include information infrastructure services, electronic products manufacturing, image recognition, voice recognition, machine translation, smart IoT, and other smart applications. These demands create a distinct market for VIYI's central processing algorithms solutions, while giving off better energy efficiency ratios during such data processing exercises.
