Recently, smartphone manufacturers have been placing increasing emphasis on the development of Artificial Intelligence. We already have several virtual assistants on the market, and all the signs in the sky indicate that Samsung wants to be one of the leaders in this field.

Next specialists join the Samsung team

Not so long ago we informed you that with the premiere of Galaxy Note 9, the Korean giant is planning to present to the world Bixby 2.0. It will be a newer and more refined version of the already existing virtual assistant from Samsung. We also wrote that by 2020 the giant is going to introduce its Artificial Intelligence to as many devices as possible. It seems that the largest producer in the world does not throw words into the wind and actually plans to meet the goals set by the company. The team working on the development of AI in Samsung Electronics is joined by two key figures – H. Sebastian Seung and Daniel. D. Lee . The former is a lecturer at Princeton University at the faculty devoted to Information Science, while the other is a professor at the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania.

Samsung puts a lot of pressure on AI

A few weeks ago, we wrote that the largest smartphone maker on the market hired 1,000 new employees to support the development of the department dealing with the development of Artificial Intelligence. Employment of two more specialists can indicate in which direction the company is going and Artificial Intelligence will be one of the most important areas of the company's development.

Doktor H. Sebastian Seung

Both Lee and Seung have a very important role to play in the development of AI in Samsung Electronics. H. Sebastian Seung studied theoretical physics at Harvard. Before joining Princeton University in 2014, Seung worked as a researcher at Bell Labs and as a lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Doktor Daniel D. Lee

Daniel D. Lee graduated from the Bachelor of Arts in AI and robotics, also from Harvard, and a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After completing his work as a researcher at Bell Labs, in 2001 Lee became a professor at the College of Engineering in Pennsylvania. As you can see, both men have quite a lot of experience in the field of Artificial Intelligence and will certainly support the existing team of Samsung working on the development of AI. Only what interests me, will Samsung finally notice us Poles and Bixby will finally speak in our language. In the end, Google is working hard to make the Google Assistant speak Polish. Will the Korean giant do the same? Source: TheKoreaHerald
