Insight teams up with Samsung for major €4 million AI research project

Insight is teaming up with Samsung for a major €4m research project to build AI technology for their products.

The next generation of Samsung’s artificial intelligence (AI) personal assistant Bixby may be built with some major assistance from the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at University College Dublin (UCD), with the signing of a new research endeavour.

The €4m project announced today (10 January) aims to leverage deep data science and AI expertise at the research centre, including machine learning, user modelling and recommender systems.

The end goal is to help Samsung create smarter products and more personalised experiences for its customers as it competes in a hotly contested space, with Silicon Valley giant Amazon dominating the AI personal assistant sphere with Amazon Echo and Alexa.
