Samsung plans $22 billion for artificial intelligence, autos

Samsung announces multi-billion dollar investment in AI, 5G, and more

Samsung to invest $22 billion into new growth areas like A.I. and 5G

The investment is part of a broader KRW 180 trillion (roughly Rs. 11 lakh crores) package South Korea's biggest business group is planning to spend over the period to create jobs and secure new growth areas, as its core semiconductor and smartphone businesses weaken.

Samsung said it wanted to build "an innovation ecosystem" for the coming years.

The figure translates into around 43 trillion won annually, which is similar to Samsung's record high facility investment of 43.4 trillion won made past year. The investments will be focused on artificial intelligence, 5G network technology, electric components for cars of the future, and biopharmaceuticals. Those areas are seen as Samsung's new growth engines.

Considering Samsung has been cautious about commenting on its reentry into the auto business, the report said, creating the new team could hint at a strategic shift at the Korean tech giant.

The world's largest manufacturer of semiconductors and smartphones said it will greatly increase the number of its staff.

In the field of AI, which is becoming a priority for almost every technology company on the planet, Samsung said its aim was to increase its number of AI researchers to about 1,000 globally.




Samsung made the announcement days after its de-facto chief, Lee Jay Y, met with finance minister Kim Dong-yeon, at a chip factory south of Seoul.

Samsung Electronics plans to invest a total of 180 trillion won both at home and overseas as well as hire 40-thousand more employees over the next three years.

The company is one of the largest employers in South Korea, and is seen as one of the nation's shining lights to the rest of the world - a reputation that was severely damaged previous year when company heir Jay Y.Lee was imprisoned on bribery charges.

Chung said reformist President Moon Jae-in's campaign to clip the wings of the country's powerful family-run conglomerates, known as chaebols, appeared to be losing steam in the face of stonewalling business groups which are "wielding prospects for investment as their weapons".

The 130 trillion won investment in the nation is expected to have an effect of creating 700-thousand jobs.
