Samsung AI Forum 2020 to be hosted online next month
Samsung has announced that it will conduct the fourth iteration of its annual AI (Artificial Intelligence) Forum next month. SAIF 2020 will be conducted online on November 2 and November 3, and people can watch the live streaming video feed of its event online via YouTube. Amid the pandemic, experts will share their insights on future technologies related to human-like algorithms.
The first day of the event will be conducted by SAIT (Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology) to showcase AI technologies that can change the real world. Kim Ki-Nam, CEO and head of Samsung Device Solutions, will deliver the opening keynote on November 2. The next day, Samsung Research will conduct the event under the ‘Human-Centered AI’ theme. The company will also give away the ‘Samsung AI Researcher of the Year’ award to encourage young AI scientists (under the age of 35). The winner will get a grant of $30,000 and a chance to deliver a presentation at the forum.
Samsung Research Director Seung Hyun-Jun said, “We hope that this AI forum will be a place to understand the future direction of AI technology development and how to apply it, and we hope that many people interested in AI will be able to participate this year as it will be an online event.” Last year, the company showcased powerful on-device AI translation during SAIF 2019.
