Samsung plans IoT sensor cloud aggregation strategy

PORTLAND, Ore.— The former director of Apple's Siri istaking Samsung's version of the artificialintelligence system to the next level.

LucJulia, vice president and innovation fellowat Samsung's Open Innovation Center in MenloPark, Calif., demonstrated SAMI (SamsungArchitecture for Multimodal Interactions),the Siri-like system central to Samsung'sInternet of Things (IoT) strategy, at theMEMS Executive Congress 2013 in Napa,Calif., Nov. 7-8.

Luc Julia heads the team working on SAMI,which is being developed at the center. SAMIis an interactive artificial intelligence(AI) similar to Apple's Siri that Juliahelped develop when at Apple.

Samsung'sSAMI, however, goes far beyond Apple's Siriby aggregating sensor data from all typesand brands of IoT devices in the cloud. Theopen system will then allow Samsungecosystem partners — some financed by a$100 million accelerator fund — to performdeep analytics on that data before sendingsmart advice back to users.

“IoT is all about sensing and collecting thedata — and then transporting it [to thecloud]. Once it's there, it's aboutmassaging it and sending it back to theuser,” said Julia, who described the sensingand collecting stage with the “big data”moniker, but who spoke of the machinelearning and analytic engines sending databack to the user as “small data” — advicethat is directly relevant to people's lives.

Samsung's Open Innovation Center in MenloPark is one of 27 OICs worldwide, and SAMIis just one of several ongoing projectsthere. So far, Samsung's Menlo Park OIC isexploring possibilities with about 48companies regarding providing the innovativesensors and actuators for wellness,smart-homes, and smart-cars, as well as thecloud-based “brains” for projects like SAMI.Samsung is engaging startups that it willfund with early-stage investments in the$100,000 to $2 million range from Samsung's$100 million accelerator fund.
