De dónde vienen los ingresos de las tecnológicas: Samsung, el gigante surcoreano con tentáculos en la construcción, las finanzas o el deporte.

Divide y vencerás. 

Cualquiera diría que ese refrán ha sido pensado específicamente para Samsung

El gigante surcoreano engloba multitud de empresas. Algunas son filiales, otras operan de manera independiente, en otras es accionista pero no tiene el control y otras tienen una distinción especial, como los clubes deportivos.  Ofrecido por Samsung

A pesar de que fuera de Corea del Sur (su país de origen), es conocida principalmente por su fortaleza en tecnología de consumo, lo cierto es que es más, mucho más.

Un tribunal coreano ha declarado hoy culpables a ocho empleados de Samsung acusados de destruir pruebas de un presunto delito de fraude contable valorado en 3.522 millones de euros.

Samsung patents tech to measure body fat with a phone.

Phones and wearable devices now collect all kinds of biometrics data, but nobody has yet figured out how to use sensors to measure body fat.

Well, Samsung may have. A new patent describes a method of using four sensors installed in or near a phone. By “near” I mean that the Samsung method might involve four sensors embedded into the screen cover of a phone case.

Samsung to Develop 400 Smart Factories in Korea by 2017.

Samsung Group will develop about 400 ‘smart factories’ in Gyeongsangbuk-do in collaboration with the Gyeongbuk Creative Economy Center, by 2017. The partners will jointly develop fully automated assembly factories based on MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and IoT (Internet Of Things) technologies.

These factories will be also equipped with tailored intelligent ultrafine machining systems and simulation techniques. Samsung is planning to establish about 100 factories by the end of this year.

Samsung to invest $100M in Internet of Things developers.

Samsung chief executive Boo-Keun Yoon said that his company will invest up to $100 million in the developer community for applications for the Internet of Things.

This category — where everyday devices become smart and connected — is a big theme at the 2015 International CES, the tech trade show where Yoon gave one of the opening keynotes today.

He said that in 2017, about 90 percent of Samsung’s products would be connected in some way to the Internet of Things. To get ready for that day, Samsung needs to invest in a lot of developers and startups that can create meaningful applications based on all of the data collected from the newly created devices.

Samsung drives $17M investment round in Seeo to help build better batteries for electric cars.

Batteries offer perhaps the greatest opportunity for innovation in the technology realm. Whoever figures out a way to pack a bigger punch into a smaller space will undoubtedly make a lot of money, which perhaps explains why Seeo is seeing so much interest from investors.

The Hayward, California-based company develops rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and it has just announced the closure of a $17 million Series E round.

Samsung wants ‘SAMI’ and ‘Simband’ to be the start of a new biohealth ecosystem.

Samsung laid out its framework today for a new consumer-centered biohealth ecosystem, featuring a new sensor-filled watch (“Simband”) and a cloud platform for storing health data collected by the device.

The ecosystem would be built around a platform called SAMI (Samsung Architecture Multimodal Interaction), which the tech giant says is designed to “sit between devices that collect data, and algorithms in the cloud that analyze that data.”

Samsung says SAMI is like the brain of the new ecosystem and that the more data that health devices collect and deposit there, the better the health insights that medical professionals can mine from it.

Samsung’s Google Glass competitor, ‘Galaxy Glass,’ could debut in September.

Samsung’s own take on Google Glass could be coming sooner than you think.

The Korean electronics giant is reportedly gearing up to unveil its smart glass device, tentatively dubbed ‘Galaxy Glass,’ as soon as September’s IFA tradeshow in Berlin, an unnamed Samsung executive tells the Korea Times.
