Samsung Invests $ 22 Billion in Artificial Intelligence Development Within Three Years

CEO of Samsung Electronics Mr. HS Kim has revealed that Samsung has invested billions of dollars in Artificial Intelligence in order to convince people that they don’t have to worry about the challenges of AI. At the IFA Science Fair in Berlin, he commented contrary to the artificial intelligence warnings from Elon Musk and Stephen Hawkings.

Artificial intelligence is the future of mankind. It is a computer technology that can think for itself. It has gained intelligence with the passage of time and has the ability to respond to requests like humans.
 


CEO of Samsung Electronics said:
“IN THE PAST TEN YEARS, WE HAVE BEEN LEADING THE GLOBAL R&D AND ARE COMMITTED TO UNLOCKING THE POWER OF AI FOR CONSUMERS. LAST YEAR WE INVESTED $140 MILLION IN AI RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. WE ALSO PROMISE TO CONTINUE TO INVEST 22 BILLION US DOLLARS IN THE NEXT THREE YEARS TO ENHANCE AI TECHNOLOGY.”

Artificial intelligence is now everywhere. Amazon opened the latest AI revolution with its Echo smart speakers, powered by Alexa Digital Assistant. Google and Apple are fast approaching artificial intelligence, by launching their own set of smart speakers such as; Sri- based HomePod, and Google Home. Samsung has its own artificial intelligence; the name of the Digital Assistant is Bixby, which can be seen on selected Samsung Mobiles phones.

However, Samsung is also facing a huge problem, and many people have serious concerns for Artificial Intelligence. From technology enthusiasts to celebrities associated with field of technology and science have concerns about AI research.

According to Professor Stephen Hawking:
“I am worried that AI may completely replace humans. If people can design a computer virus, then someone can design an AI that can self-improve and replicate. This will be a transcendence of humanity. New life form.”

Nevertheless, CEO Samsung revealed that the brand has created Artificial Intelligence research centers in the United Kingdom, Russia, Canada, United States, and its native Korea.

He further added: “By 2020, we expect that there will be about a thousand AI experts working in Samsung’s labs around the world.” At the beginning of this year, The Sun interviewed world-renowned futurist Ian Pearson. He also warned about the risk of robots ruling the world, which is quiet real.

And if the Artificial Intelligence finally goes astray, we humans may have to take responsibility. Luciano Floridi, the head of the digital laboratory at Oxford University is of the opinion that, “The real risk of AI comes entirely from humans, such as abuse, wrong choices, bad design, and timing of misses. If AI has problems, responsibility lies with us. It is unique to humans. The threat is humanity, and the rest is science fiction.”
