"Samsung aims to lead efforts to foster a vibrant ecosystem for innovations and growth, leveraging its technology and decades of experiences in creating successful businesses", the company said in a statement Wednesday. As part of the plan, it will open up its venture incubation programme to external and internal start-up projects and provide software training. With its investment in AI, it will increase its own capability, increasing the number of researchers to 1,000 across its global AI Centers.

In addition to components for devices, Samsung also sees 5G as a chance to transform its network equipment division into a major player that can compete with Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia.

Some of the funding will go to Samsung's biopharmaceutical businesses.
