Samsung launches AI lab in Montreal, Canada

Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) has established an AI Lab at the University of Montreal in Canada. The AI Lab will be used to strengthen collaborative research with scholars in the AI ​​field.
SAIT has been collaborating with Professor Yoshua Bengio of University of Montreal, one of the world’s top authority on deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence, since 2014, and with other partners in University of Toronto, McGill University and NYU.

“There is a long-standing and fruitful research collaboration between us and Samsung and we are glad to see Samsung open a research lab here and join the amazing momentum which is turning Montreal into an international hub for AI, both academically and industrially,” commented Prof. Bengio regarding this event.

In this Samsung AI Lab, the researchers dispatched from Korea will work along side local professors and students including Prof. Bengio to develop key algorithms and components for artificial intelligence such as voice/image recognition, translation, autonomous driving, and robots. It will also contribute to acquiring global talents and strengthening Samsung’s AI technology.

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.”

In addition, 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.
