Samsung to work with Google on advancing artificial intelligence

According to a report by The Investor, Samsung is seeking to collaborate with Google in advancing AI. Samsung mobile division’s Lee Kyeong-tae stated in a conference call that “Samsung and Google will have to continue to maintain their strategic partnership to nurture the AI and the market for the emerging technology.”

He added that Samsung intends to increase its presence in the AI section, not just on smartphones but also tablets and smart TVs. This means that we’ll be hearing more about Bixby in the near future. The company is also interested in offering its solutions to outside companies and third-party firms. Samsung says that competition in the AI segment will help with technology advancement and bring growth to this segment.

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 will be equipped with AI virtual assistant Bixby, which will be integrated into almost all native apps on the phone. Some rumors said that Samsung disagreed with Google on the planned installation of its AI solutions on the new smartphone. Google is known to sometimes limit the installation of software solutions and apps by smartphone makers.
