Korean tech giant Samsung announced major investment in artificial intelligence research in UK



Korean tech giant Samsung has announced a major investment in artificial intelligence research in the UK.

 
The company is to open an AI research lab in Cambridge, in a move that has been welcomed by the prime minister.


The lab will join other Samsung centres dedicated to the topic, based in Moscow and Toronto. The technology is now seen as key to competing in many industries.


The UK has been a hotspot for AI research. But there are concerns about a growing skills shortage.
Samsung says the lab will focus on health and communication.
Theresa May said the announcement was "a vote of confidence in the UK as a world leader in artificial intelligence" and would create high-skilled highly paid jobs.
