SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics has showcased a real-time interpretation service, based on generative artificial intelligence technique, for users of Galaxy S24, Samsung's latest phone scheduled for release on January 31, 2024. Galaxy S24's instant interpretation feature will help users communicate with other people regardless of their language barrier.  

The technology giant's upcoming Galaxy S24 series offers functions based on generative AI, a type of AI that can produce new content such as text, images, or other data studied through machine learning processes. Samsung's on-device AI model is operated on the phone and does not require any internet connection or other internet-based services including cloud computing. According to the tech giant, the AI-based personal interpretation service feature supports 13 languages including English, Korean, Spanish, Chinese, and French. 

Samsung presented the AI-based smartphone at a Galaxy showcase event in California on January 17. A presenter on stage showed a video of a man speaking in English, and the new Galaxy phone displayed the message interpreted in Spanish on the screen. A male AI voice also read out the Spanish version of the English message. The whole process took about one second.

"Galaxy AI is built on our innovation heritage and deep understanding of how people use their phones," Samsung's mobile experience business head TM Roh said. "We're excited to see how our users around the world empower their everyday lives with Galaxy AI to open up new possibilities."

A report published in August 2023 showed that Generative AI has the potential to unlock South Korea's productive capacity by up to $476.6 million, equivalent to 29 percent of the nation's gross domestic product in 2022. The study estimated that the financial and insurance sector would be the most affected (10.1 percent), followed by the professional, scientific, and technology-related service industries (9.6 percent). The joint study was conducted by the Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry, American tech giant Microsoft, and Access Partnership, a London-based technology-focused public policy consultancy.
