Samsung Electronics announced the expansion of the SAIT (Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology). The Lab will help the company strengthen its fundamentals in AI research and drive competitiveness in system semiconductors. The AI Lab is located in Mila (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms): founded by Professor Yoshua Bengio at the University of Montreal (Canada), Mila is one of the greatest research centers in the field of deep learning and has a partnership with the University of Montreal and McGill University. SAIT AI Lab Montreal has an open workspace with the aim of working closely with the AI research communities in Mila. SAIT AI Lab Montreal will focus on unsupervised learning and Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) research to develop disruptive innovation and breakthrough technologies, including new deep learning algorithms and next generation of on-device AI. “SAIT focuses on research and development – not only in next generation semiconductor but also innovative AI as a seed technology in system semiconductors. SAIT AI Lab Montreal will play a key role within Samsung to redefine AI theory and deep learning algorithm for the next 10 years”, said Sungwoo Hwang, Executive Vice President and Deputy Head of SAIT.
