Samsung Electronics Co. on Oct. 19, 2018 said it has opened a new artificial intelligence (AI) research center in Montreal, which marks the seventh of its kind around the globe.
"The opening of the AI center in Montreal will allow Samsung to expand its outpost for industry collaboration and talent recruitment in a major AI hub in Canada, dedicated to research and development of core AI technologies that entail machine learning, language, vision and other multi-modal interactions," the company said.
Samsung said it named Gregory Dudek from the McGill University School of Computer Science to head the Montreal center.
"We are excited to open a new Samsung AI Centre in Montreal, which will conduct research in machine learning and robotics enabled multi-modal interactions," Dudek said. "We are also looking forward to collaborating with the top universities and academic institutions in the region."
The company said the new center will collaborate with the other AI research center in the country, located in Toronto. Samsung has two more centers in North America, namely Silicon Valley and New York, along with those in South Korea, Britain and Russia.(Yonhap)
