Summary
SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son aims to raise $100 billion for new chip venture, Project Izanagi, planning to rival Nvidia in AI processors and contribute to artificial general intelligence (AGI) development. It remains uncertain whether AI processors designed by Project Izanagi will use technologies such as instruction set architecture developed by Arm. How the new venture will co-exist with Arm's supposed plans to create reference chip designs for various workloads is also unclear. Son intends to invest $30 billion from SoftBank, with the remaining $70 billion potentially raised from Middle Eastern institutions. The specifics of Izanagi's funding and execution are still determined.
