HD Hyundai Teams Up with Google Cloud to Accelerate AI Innovation

HD Hyundai (former Hyundai Heavy Industries Group), a South Korean shipbuilding and heavy industries manufacturer, is partnering with Google Cloud to accelerate its digital transformation using generative artificial intelligence technology.

The collaboration will introduce generative AI across HD Hyundai’s core businesses, including its shipbuilding and construction machinery businesses in Korea. Google Cloud will provide enterprise solutions like its Vertex AI platform to develop industry-specific AI applications.

Starting in January, HD Hyundai will prioritize tasks like:

  • Building AI solutions tailored to each of its industry’s needs
  • Creating AI-based platforms to enhance customer digital experiences
  • Training AI experts

HD Hyundai has already piloted a generative AI service for after-sales calls at its construction equipment division. The collaboration with Google Cloud commenced in July, and HD Hyundai plans to establish a long-term AI roadmap to lead digital and business innovation.

The company’s earlier moves to boost AI capabilities in-house included:

  • Launching an AI Center to develop custom generative AI
  • Partnering with POSCO on smart unmanned technology
  • Collaborating with Siemens on AI for smart shipyards

In connection with this partnership, Philip Moyer, vice president of global AI business and solutions at Google Cloud, will speak at HD Hyundai’s CES 2024 keynote session.
