News Oct 12, 2018 Samsung Catalyst Fund Team

At the #SamsungCEOSummit in San Francisco, guests enjoyed thought-provoking technology demos from some of Samsung’s portfolio companies as well as researchers from academia. The demos helped bring to life the theme of this year’s CEO Summit: how AI is helping shape our future.

Autotalks demonstrated its V2X chipsets, which allow secure communications between cars and other cars, trucks, motorcycles, and the infrastructure. By enabling cars to talk to one another, Autotalks helps cars—including, in the future, autonomous cars—avoid accidents and use the roads more efficiently, especially when there’s no line of site between vehicles.
