SAIT has been collaborating with Professor Yoshua Bengio of the University of Montreal. He has been known to be the world’s top authority on deep learning, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, since 2014, with other partners at the University of Toronto, McGill University, and NYU.
Samsung AI lab has professors from Korea who will be working with local professors and students. This team will be working with Prof. Bengio to develop key algorithms and components for artificial intelligence, such as voice/image recognition, translation, autonomous driving, and robots. The top-class researchers & students will be working with the aim of contributing to the future aspects of the company.
Eunsoo Shim, VP and Head of S/W Solution Lab at SAIT, said, “The joint research with Professor Bengio has been a foundation for the development of artificial intelligence in Samsung Electronics, and Samsung AI Lab will be a momentous step for us to leap forward.” he added that SAIT plans to establish and operate a “Neural Processing Research Center” with local universities such as Seoul National University during the year to accelerate its research in the field of AI processor.
We are aware of how the technological world is facing ferocious competition in the market. Apple and Google, on the one hand, are coming up with new strategies to conquer the tech market. On the other hand, Samsung doesn’t want to lose any opportunity and lag behind.
