Work life: 10 Reasons to Switch to the Galaxy Note9


For working users, some things are imperative when you’re on the go and trying to get work done on your smartphone. From responding to emails to annotating documents, even toggling between multiple windows while dialling into a conference call, it can be a real challenge to work solely using the productivity tools on your mobile device.

With Samsung’s Galaxy Note9, however, we make working from your mobile device, dare we say, easy. Thanks to the 6.4-in. Infinity Display, the S Pen, numerous smart productivity tools, oh and we can’t forget the wonderful app pair feature, the Note9 makes it easier to do more — and do it better. And, switching to the Galaxy Note9 won’t take long, and certainly won’t pose any problems thanks to the Samsung Smart Switch. In one seamless move, you can transfer contacts, photos, music, messages and other data, making the upgrade to the Note9 simply irrefutable.

So, without further ado, we give you the top 10 reasons why you should switch to the Galaxy Note9.


1. Protect Your Data
If you know security is imperative, you know Samsung Knox is top-notch. With Knox’s defense-grade security, you no longer need to worry if your employees are keeping business data safe. Built from the chip up, Samsung Knox provides a security platform for serious protection and integrates closely with all the leading MDM solutions.


2. Increase Your Productivity
Cue the S Pen. This snazzy little pen gives you full control over your device. Use Screen Off Memo to take notes in a meeting without even unlocking your screen, or mark up PDFs on the go. The S Pen provides higher levels of usability for business applications on the Note9’s generous 6.4-in. screen. Like the Note9, the S Pen is water and dust-resistant, meaning you can use it to capture signatures or take notes, even in industries where getting caught in the rain happens frequently on the job.

3. Be More Efficient
Did you know that Note users already multitask 40 percent more than other Galaxy owners? It’s not a coincidence. With App Pair, Note9 users can launch two apps with one tap and use them side-by-side on the Infinity Display. Need to jump on a conference call while on the go? No problem. Simply pair your calendar and your phone keypad and you’ll have everything you need in one place, on one screen. Gone are the days of jumping back and forth between apps, wasting precious time and making silly mistakes. No need to worry about the number of apps you have open: The 10nm processor and 6GB RAM will keep you running at top speed.

4. Snap Pro Pics
We get it — life isn’t all work and no play. That’s why we equipped the Note9 with the world’s first Dual Camera with Optical Image Stabilization on both lenses (yes, you read that right). Whether you’re shooting in the dark or from a distance, photos are clear. Clear Zoom allows you to zoom in closer with less blur so you can capture great portraits and enjoy low-light clarity for incredible photos. Does the photog in you want more control? Switch to Pro Mode for all the options you’d expect from a pro camera. With Live Focus, you can focus on what you want, when you want to. Change the depth-of-field to make your subject stand out, and you can even see what it’ll look like before you take the photo. But, it’s not only beneficial after hours. You’ve never looked as good as you will on the front-facing camera — perfect for video conferencing when you’re OOO.


5. See More, Scroll Less
Whether you’re reviewing PDFs, working on Excel spreadsheets or watching videos on demand, you’ll have all the advantages of a 6.3-in. Infinity Display in the palm of your hand. Working outdoors or from a cab on the way to a meeting? No need to worry about the sun putting a damper on your productivity, the Note9 is unbelievably bright when you need it most. Boasting sharp, true-to-life color with the Mobile HDR Premium-certified Super AMOLED display, the Note9 will give you a cinema-quality screen, and with the 83 percent screen-to-body ratio, you’ll have more screen to work with and less phone to hold. What more could you ask for?

6. Enable the Mobile Worker With DeX
Imagine sitting down at your desk with just your Note9 in hand, docking it into your DeX Station, plugging in a simple keyboard and mouse, and having all of your work right there at your fingertips. With DeX, it’s literally that simple. You can work in multiple, resizable windows, use drag and drop with your mouse and all the standard keyboard shortcuts on an intuitive desktop, powered by your phone. Working remotely? Leave your laptop at the office and travel lightly with just your Note9 and DeX — no need to lug around anything more. Traveling for work? Plug DeX in anywhere there’s a screen — it’s HDMI-enabled so pretty much any TV or monitor will work. Plus, it works great with Office 365 and advanced apps such as Adobe Lightroom.

7. Get More Done With DeX + VDI
With Samsung DeX, you can run virtualized Windows desktops and apps with enterprise-ready VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) solutions from Citrix, VMware and Amazon. It’s simple — dock your Note9 into DeX and get to work. The Note9 easily integrates into your existing virtualized environments so your team can get more done, easily and more seamlessly than ever. Employees can use their existing credentials to set up and log in, just like they’d do from the office. Thanks to the Note9, you’ve got all of the advantages of VDI on a smartphone managed by your MDM.


8. Separate Work + Personal – Part 1: Secure Folder
Keeping data secure shouldn’t just be of interest to your employer; it’s important to keep your personal data secure, too. That’s where Secure Folder comes in. It supports keeping your work and personal information separate, while still utilizing that defense-grade security that Samsung Knox offers. Drop all of your personal apps in one place and add multi-authentication to secure it — use biometrics or enter your PIN to access. Need to access your personal bank account? No problem. Just keep your personal apps in your Secure Folder and access them whenever, wherever, all from the same device.



9. Separate Work + Personal – Part 2: Dual Messenger
Are you juggling Facebook Messenger for work as well as your own personal account? Now, thanks to Note9’s Dual Messenger, you’ll never have to switch back and forth or re-log into accounts again — simply run the app as two separate instances. You can have two social accounts open and active at the same time. And it isn’t just Facebook, but also WhatsApp, WeChat, Viber, LINE, Skype and more. Dual Messenger lets you separate your work life from your personal life, giving you the ideal work-life integration.

10. Switching Made Easy
Let’s just get right down to it. Switching from an old mobile device to a new device, whether it’s a Samsung device, an iPhone, even your computer (PC or Mac), is usually a major headache. Transferring over all of your data — your contacts, emails, photos, you name it — used to be a bear, but with Samsung’s Smart Switch, transitioning from one device to another is undeniably effortless. There are three simple ways: transfer content directly from your old phone wirelessly, transfer content directly from your old phone via USB cable, or transfer content from a PC or Mac to your new Galaxy Note9 phone.

Equipped with the next generation of productivity tools, the Note9 is built for multitasking, letting you work from your mobile device anytime, from anywhere. Discover even more ways that the Galaxy Note9 can bring a new level of productivity to your enterprise.

Samsung Electronics Sweeps Coveted Global AI Awards


Samsung Electronicsartificial intelligence (AI) capabilities are being recognized globally in a competitive field with top researchers all seeking to dominate. Samsung Research, the advanced R&D arm of Samsung Electronics’ device business, has won recent competitions, which will be vital in ultimately rolling out AI in more real-world situations than ever.

In October, Samsung Research’s R&D Institute Poland (SRPOL), in partnership with University of Edinburgh of the UK, won first place at the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT), one of the world’s most renowned and longest-running automatic language translation workshops. IWSLT sits alongside the Workshop on Machine Translation (WMT) as the most prestigious competitions in the space. The IWSLT win is the second consecutive time that the Poland research center has topped the workshop.

Every June, IWSLT provides permissible training data sets and allows test run submissions from participants, evaluating the submitted runs with automatic metrics. This year, IWSLT featured two tasks: Low Resource Machine Translation and Speech Translation. SRPOL participated in the first sector, aiming to discover new technologies that can help overcome low-resource situations with scarcity in not only data but also in time and cost that are often required to use AI for multilingual translation.

Samsung’s task was using AI technology to translate text from Basque to English. The SRPOL team was first provided with limited amount of data – about a million Basque-to-English parallel data sets in the form of movie subtitles – to train and develop the algorithm model. Then, the team used this data to translate TED Talks given in Basque into English. Despite the difficulty of proposed translation direction and scarce data, when compared with the reference translations, SRPOL received the highest Bilingual Evaluation Understudy score (BLEU) of 26.21 – showing a high level of correspondence of the machine translation to the reference – and a  significantly low error rate.
On the bordering country of Ukraine, Samsung’s AI expertise is being applied successfully within the automotive field. Samsung R&D Institute Ukraine (SRK) submitted a solution that it developed to detect pedestrians for the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (KITTI) Vision Benchmark Suite, one of the top three benchmarking organizations for automotive driving technology, in August. KITTI sits alongside Caltech Pedestrian and CityScapes as the leading benchmarking institutions.

Among the nine KITTI categories including Stereo, Objects, Tracking, Road and more – SRK submitted its computer vision technology SiRtaKi in the ‘Pedestrian Tracking’ category. Since the submission, the solution has been recognized as the best in the field, retaining its top position on the leaderboard.

To enter the competition in the ‘Pedestrian Tracking’ category, AI algorithms are tested on their capabilities to not only detect objects but trace their movements – an upgrade from the previous technologies where only detection was possible. Likewise, SRK downloaded roughly 3,400 raw images of pedestrian movements from KITTI to run SiRtaKi which employs a tracking-by-detection approach. The team, using SiRtaKi, obtained and analyzed each passerby’s coordination and traveling direction countless times. As a result, SRK’s rigorous work paid off as they received the best score among competitors for a high level of accuracy in the object tracking.
Needless to say, such AI technology is expected to help create new possibilities in the automotive industry - that it can be implemented in autonomous’ sensors to detect nearby pedestrians and objects’ movements and reduce danger on the roads. Adding on, the new algorithm will also be applied in our daily lives like home appliances and also in the to-be-developed next-generation technologies.

It doesn’t end here. Last July, Samsung Research placed first in two of the world’s prestigious AI reading competitions, the MAchine Reading COmprehension (MS MARCO) Competition held by Microsoft and TriviaQA hosted by the University of Washington. To date, Samsung is still ranked first in the Web category of TriviaQA. And in March, Samsung R&D Institute China-Beijing (SRC-B) made mark in AI development in computer vision (technologies in analysis of characters and images), winning the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR), a global competition in Optical Character Recognition technologies.


“So much innovation took place by Samsung Electronics from all over the world. With multiple achievements in the world’s prestigious AI-related competitions, Samsung is leading the development of artificial intelligence and the related technologies on a global level,” said Seunghwan Cho, Vice President of Samsung Research. “We will continue to contribute to realizing a highly user-centric environment by applying the groundbreaking AI technology to our current products and services.”

10 Minutes to Mindfulness

Cvičenia mindfulness meditácie
Quick and easy mindfulness exercises that can improve your life


From working late in the office to running to social get-togethers, it’s easy to lose yourself in the shuffle of everyday life. Here are some tips for guided mindfulness that will help you be more present—and you can do them in 10 minutes or less

Image
Samsung Health: Take a second to reset your breathing with the Samsung Health app

1. Ready, set, breath
When we’re stressed at work, we have the tendency to not use our full range of breath. Even though you’re going 100 miles a minute, taking a few minutes to do a breathing exercise can help you make it through the day with your sanity intact

Making breakfast can be a form of morning meditation
TIP: Chia pudding is packed with protein and only requires 3 ingredients. Make it the night before and wake up to a delicious breakfast.

2. Make yourself breakfast
Cooking can be a mindfulness exercise, and breakfast is an important meal. It starts your day off right while giving you fuel to get through more gruelling tasks, like that pesky morning commute. Eggs only take a few minutes to scramble and overnight oats practically make themselves, so there’s really no excuse to start the day hungry

Micro workouts get your endorphins going with cardio
3. Do a micro-workout (it’s a thing)
Workouts are great for the mind and they don’t have to be an hour long. Micro-workouts are short 10-minute bursts of exercise that engage your whole body and elevate your heart rate. You can take 10 minutes to do 30-second intervals of jump rope or squats and still get your endorphins going with some cardio

Listening to music with headphones on can help you meditate and be present
4. Refresh your playlist
We can all be creatures of habit when it comes to music, but experiencing new things can help you be more mindful. Most streaming sites recommend artists based on what you’ve played recently, so it’s easy to find something new. To really experience the sound, put your headphones on, close your eyes and be present

Drawing on a tablet or smartphone can spark your creativity
PENUP App: PENUP is a thriving art community right on your Galaxy smartphone

5. Spark your creativity
Between work and working out, it’s easy to forget the importance of creativity. Every day, try dedicating 10 minutes to writing, doodling or even colouring. They’re all great for reducing stress and using your brain in a different way

Add a personal touch
With the Galaxy Note9 and S Pen, you can draw your own emojis or write a message on a photo and send it as a handwritten note

What is QLED TV and Why You’ll Want One

Samsung’s QLED tv in your home

The QLED TV in your home. Time to set up.
So, you’ve decided to bring a new QLED TV into your home. You head to the store, pick out the right size for your room, and bring it home. It’s out of the box and ready to go, and you can’t believe how good it looks. In fact, you realize it would look good anywhere you put it. While admiring its four-side bezel-less front, your eyes wander to the back that’s smooth and sleek—until the part that’s been cut out specially for the No-Gap Wall Mount. We designed the back panel so that the mount connects inside the back panel rather than to its exterior, allowing the TV to sit as close against the wall as possible for a seamless look in your home. Plus, it’s super easy to install. You’ll be finished quickly so you can get on your favorite show in no time at all.

Samsung’s QLED tvs express 100% color volume and HDR1500-2000
Turn on the TV to see the real world, in HDR.
It’s mounted and been swiveled to the ideal angle for your viewing pleasure, and now it’s time to turn on your new TV. But whoa! These colors are so vivid. This is like watching real life on your TV. That’s because QLED TVs can express 100% color volume. Color volume is what you get when you add light to colors and a fantastic range of hues is created. This is all thanks to the New Metal Quantum dot, which is uniform in shape and expresses color in a fine and dense manner that makes color realistic and keeps details clear.

You also notice that it’s easy on the eyes while still being really detailed. What’s at work there is the bright HDR technology. HDR stands for High-Dynamic Range, and in QLED TVs it can express HDR1500–2000, which mimics the brightness of 1500–2000 candles and is really close to what occurs naturally.1 So details shine through.

Smart remote controlling all your devices and content
You’ve connected all your devices and now have all you need at a press of the One Remote Control.
When it comes time to plug in your devices you realize there are no ports in the TV. But the Invisible Connection allows you to tuck your devices away for an elegant, minimalistic visual wherever you put your TV. Every device that’s plugged in is connected to the TV via the Invisible Connection and automatically detected, meaning no more playing detective to find out what’s plugged in where.2 And you don’t have to point the smart remote at each device to control it, just point at the QLED TV.

You can also download the Smart View app onto your phone to easily control your QLED TV in between text messages. You can even use it as a game controller for cloud games.

QLED tv’s bold contrast no matter how bright or dark your surroundings
The sun has set, the lights are turned on, and the QLED TV still has the same great picture quality.
After a long day, you decide to kick back and watch some TV. You debate whether or not you want to turn on the lamp, since you don’t want the glare, but ultimately you decide you should probably not risk kicking the coffee table in the dark. But wait, there’s less glare on the TV! That’s because Ultra Black minimizes reflections on the screen so the picture comes in clear, regardless of the ambient lighting.

There’s also Precision Black, which uses dimming technology to ensure the optimal contrast on-screen. Ultra Black’s reflectivity improvement works together with Precision Black technology that automatically adjusts the brightness of every scene. So no matter if it’s a sunny day with rays streaming through the windows or the dark of night with every lamp in the house on, you’ll get great picture clarity and stunning, lifelike colors on your QLED TV.

With QLED tv, every seat is a great seat preventing color distortion to the onscreen picture
No more fighting over the best seat (because every seat is!)
Now that you’re comfortable with the newest addition to your home, it’s time to introduce it to everybody. So you invite your friends over for a day full of TV fun. The Smart Hub has plenty of content no matter what your crew wants to do: stream a movie, play a game, watch some baseball… There’s something for everyone

Once you’ve settled on content, the battle for the best seat begins. Time out! The QLED TV is full of technology that works together to prevent distortion to the onscreen picture so that whether you’re sitting on the couch, the chair, or if you’re moving around while cleaning up after your friend who just spilled popcorn everywhere, you see the same great picture with stunning colors and impressive clarity.
