Samsung Opens Artificial Intelligence Research Centre In New York
The smartphone industry owes a lot to AI(Artificial Intelligence) , especially when it comes to the new age revolutionary smartphones. And it seems like Samsung is keen to strengthen its hold on the field of AI to keep introducing better smartphones. Samsung Electronics Co has now launched its sixth AI research centre in the New York City. On Sunday, the tech giant announced that the research centre will mainly focus on robotics.
Samsung has Artificial Intelligence research centres in five countries including Russia, Canada, Britain, Silicon Valley in the US and its home country, South Korea. The new AI centre in New York will be led by Daniel D. Lee, Executive Vice President of Samsung Research. Lee, who joined the company last summer, is also a highly acclaimed AI robotics expert.
This move to open another AI research centre in New York seems to serve two purposes for Samsung. The company will now have access to a huge talent pool in New York, while being in close proximity with leading academic universities.
H. Sebastian Seung, a renowned neuroscientist and Chief Research Scientist of Samsung Electronics, will also be at the helm of the new research centre. Apart from this, Seung will help them identify areas for further growth opportunities.
Creating Value For Customers
The new research centre is aimed at creating better products by tapping into the unequivocal power of AI. This research centre, along with the other five centres, will enable the company to offer more value products to the customers. In fact, earlier this year the company affirmed its plan to expand its AI research efforts by soliciting the services of nearly 1000 AI specialists by 2020.
Samsung said that AI owes its wonderful achievements to technologies like neural networks. Further they asserted their intention to be a unanimous part of this new era of AI.
Do these claims mean that Samsung is gearing up to prove its indisputable mettle in the field of Artificial Intelligence?
