Samsung has unveiled its Generative AI model, called Samsung Gauss. The company is already using the artificial intelligence tool internally to enhance employee productivity. It will be available to the public through the Korean firm’s products and apps in the “near” future.

Samsung Gauss is here to add to the generative AI hype

It has been almost a year since ChatGPT made its blockbuster debut to kick off a new era of generative AI. The hype has hardly waned since then, with many other companies coming up with similar AI tools. Samsung has now joined the trend with its Samsung Gauss AI model.

The Korean firm’s AI tool is named after the legendary mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss. Often referred to as the “Prince of Mathematicians,” Gauss established the Normal Distribution Theory, also called the Gaussian distribution.  This theory is regarded as the backbone of ML (machine learning) and AI. Samsung says the name reflects its ultimate vision for generative AI.

According to the company, its AI model consists of Samsung Gauss Language, Samsung Gauss Code, and Samsung Gauss Image. The former is a language tool that can generate answers based on natural language input. It helps users in tasks such as composing emails, summarizing documents, and translating content. Samsung says integrating the tool into mobile devices can make for smarter device control.

Samsung Gauss Code is an AI tool that specializes in coding. It features a coding assistant called “code.i” to help indie developers with in-house software development. The company says the tool allows developers to code easily and quickly and offers functions such as code description and interactive test case generation.

Finally, Samsung Gauss Image is an AI-powered image generation tool, similar to ChatGPT-maker OpenAI’s Dall-E. It can generate and edit images based on text input. You can change the style of an image or add more details or objects. It can also convert low-resolution images to high-resolution. Overall, Samsung Gauss is a complete generative AI solution from the Korean conglomerate.

The Galaxy S24 series may feature this tool

Developed by Samsung Research, Samsung Gauss was unveiled during the company’s AI Forum 2023 event in Seoul, South Korea on Tuesday. The firm hasn’t specified when it will be available publicly. However, based on previous leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S24 series could debut the generative AI tool.

Samsung reportedly wants to make the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra the best AI phones ever. Samsung Gauss could be integral to this plan. Hopefully, the company won’t make the AI features subscription-only, at least not all of them. The Galaxy S24 lineup is expected to arrive on January 17, 2024.
