This year, some 1,200 participants took part in the conference.
Samsung SDS Innovation Framework is a solution that helps companies to obtain strategic investments and technical capability, and run business project contests by publishing open source codes.
Among solutions unveiled at the event was a software tool that helps speed up the development of artificial intelligence programs. It improves the labeling work, which analyzes and attaches data with meaningful tags, by up to 80 percent compared to conventional solutions. It also helps developers to choose the optimized deep learning model -- for example, to utilize GPUs and memory chips -- in AI development.
Samsung SDS also showcased Site Reliability Engineering, a software program that allows companies to distribute and run services in global markets. The program has been adopted in a chatbot application by tech giant Samsung Electronics’ mobile division.
“The company will continue to nurture the ecosystem for developers by publishing open source code and holding developer conferences,” said Samsung SDS CEO Hong Won-pyo.
