In September, Patently Apple posted a report titled "Samsung Officially opened a new AI Center in New York Today, their Second in the U.S and Sixth around the World." Today we're learning that Samsung Electronics is planning to open their seventh artificial intelligence research center, this time in Montreal. The new center will become Samsung's second AI center in Canada, along with one in Toronto.
Samsung Electronics has AI research centers in South Korea, Britain and Russia, as well as in the United States, where it has a center in Silicon Valley and another in New York.
The upcoming center in Montreal is expected to employ tens of researchers, studying deeper into AI technologies, which can be applied in smartphones and TVs, the sources said.
Samsung Electronics earlier vowed to use AI technologies in all of its products by 2020.
Samsung is racing to get ahead of their rivals in the field of Artificial Intelligence including Apple.
Samsung's AI Center located in Manhattan New York will be led by Daniel D. Lee, Executive Vice President of Samsung Research and a global authority in AI robotics, who joined Samsung Electronics last June.
