Samsung to Open AI Focused Research Center

In a recent boost to the field of artificial intelligence, Asian electronics giant Samsung will soon open a research center to facilitate development of consumer-focused artificial intelligence (AI) applications. Sources have indicated that the company plans to aggressively pursue research around AI in its mobile and consumer electronics business. However, the company has not disclosed where the research center will be located.

This news comes after other tech companies have started pursuing their research and development initiatives around artificial intelligence.

The company had clearly indicated its intentions to go full-speed into the field of AI when it opened a lab in Canada earlier this year. The lab focuses on self-driven cars and image recognition technology. This announcement came with another, as Samsung announced a slight change in the role of its Chief Strategy Officer Young Sohn. Young will now be responsible to look for new business opportunities. This move has been made to cater to the constantly changing market conditions.

Young had also orchestrated an $8 billion acquisition of Harman in 2016.

It has been a trend for Samsung to always wanted be ahead of itself, even before the company delivers a concrete output. Only time will tell how this plan to set up the AI research center will unfold. However, one good thing is that the company is finally establishing the AI space, an area where other contemporary tech companies have already made strong inroads.
