Samsung Wins at Two Top Global AI Machine Reading Comprehension Challenges


Samsung Research has ranked first in two of the world's top global artificial intelligence (AI) machine reading comprehension competitions.

Samsung Research recently placed first in the MAchine Reading COmprehension (MS MARCO) Competition held by Microsoft, as well as showing the best performance in TriviaQA hosted by the University of Washington.

MS MARCO and TriviaQA are among the actively researched and used machine reading comprehension competitions along with SQuAD of Stanford University and NarrativeQA of DeepMind.

Machine reading comprehension is where an AI algorithm is tasked with analyzing data and finding an optimum answer to a query on its own accord. For MS MARCO and TriviaQA, AI algorithms are tested in their capabilities of processing natural language in human Q&As and also providing written text in various types of documents such as news articles and blog posts.

For example in MS MARCO, ten web documents are presented for a certain query to let an AI algorithm create an optimum answer. Queries are randomly selected from a million queries from Bing (MS search engine) users. Answers are evaluated statistically by estimating how close they are with human answers. This is a test designed to apply an AI algorithm to solve real-world problems.

Samsung Research took part in the competitions with ConZNet, an AI algorithm developed by the company's AI Center. ConZNet features skillful capabilities through adopting the Reinforcement Learning technique, which advances machine intelligence by giving reasonable feedback for outcomes, similar to a stick-and-carrot strategy in a learning process.

With the recent acceleration in global competition to develop AI technologies, contests are widespread in areas of computer vision (technologies to analyze characters and images) and visual Q&A to solve problems using recognized images of characters as well as machine reading comprehension. The Beijing branch of Samsung Research won the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR) hosted by the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR) in March, putting them in a top-tier group for global computer vision tests. The ICDAR is the most influential competition in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies.

"We are developing an AI algorithm to provide answers to user queries in a simpler and more convenient manner, for real life purposes," said Jihie Kim, Head of Language Understanding Lab at Samsung Research. "Active discussion is underway in Samsung to adopt the ConZNet AI algorithm for products, services, customer response and technological development."

Huge Phone Factory in India

Seperately, Samsung also on Monday announced the opening of what it said is the world's biggest mobile phone manufacturing facility as the South Korean tech group seeks to expand production in the world's fastest growing major mobile phone market.

The facility, located close to New Delhi, will allow Samsung to manufacture phones at a lower cost due to its scale, while other phone making hubs in China, South Korea and Vietnam are getting expensive.

The factory will also help Samsung compete with rivals such as China's Xiaomi, which became India's biggest smartphone brand by shipments earlier this year.

Samsung also plans to export India-made handsets, the company said in a statement.
