Samsung Research Launched to Help Drive Samsung’s Leadership in Future Innovation
In December 2017, Samsung launched Samsung Research by reorganizing its Software R&D center and Digital Media & Communications (DMC) R&D center into a new entity. Samsung Research will function as an integrated R&D organization for Samsung’s Consumer Electronics as well as IT and Mobile businesses. Chief among the priorities for the organization will be to drive forward maturation and advancements within artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and other areas to ensure Samsung continues to lead the industry conversation.
As a global entity, Samsung Research will operate 22 R&D centers around the world, with a total of 20,000 staff. In addition to leading future innovation, the mandate of the new organization will also be to help explore and create new business possibilities.
At a recent launch event, Hyun-suk Kim, President and Head of Samsung Research, detailed the vision of the new entity, emphasizing to staff the vital role they would each play in making sure Samsung Research reaches its goal to ‘shape the future with innovation and intelligence.’
“Starting now, Samsung Research will drive the most advanced technological leadership and innovation based on AI technologies to realize the future that everyone dreams of, with the most talented people in the world,” Hyun-suk Kim told employees at the event. “In order to achieve this vision, one of Samsung Research’s first missions will be to instill a development culture where everyone encourages one another in creativity, as well as autonomously participates in the development process.”
As the capabilities of AI grow, Samsung’s continuing work and driving aim will be to build a single robust, flexible and expandable platform to integrate and optimally utilize the technology. Within its R&D environment, and with Samsung Research playing a key contributing role, Samsung will connect its technologies together to enable interoperability and simplicity for users, all powered by the latest in cutting-edge AI technologies.
