Samsung is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It comprises numerous subsidiaries and affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol .Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades, the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since 1990s, Samsung has increasingly globalized its activities, and electronics, particularly mobile phones and semiconductors, have become its most important source of income.Notable Samsung industrial subsidiaries include Samsung Electronics , Samsung Heavy Industries , and Samsung Engineering and Samsung C&T . Other notable subsidiaries include Samsung Life Insurance , Samsung Everland , Samsung Techwin and Cheil Worldwide .Samsung has a powerful influence on South Korea's economic development, politics, media and culture, and has been a major driving force behind the "Miracle on the Han River". Its affiliate companies produce around a fifth of South Korea's total exports. Samsung's revenue was equal to 17% of South Korea's $1,082 billion GDP.In 2013, Samsung began construction on building the world's largest mobile phone factory in the Thai Nguyen province of Vietnam.Samsung has been able to achieve the largest market share of nearly 31% in the global smartphone segment, as of 2013.

A method for manufacturing a charge pump-based artificial lightning generator comprises the steps of: forming a second electrode on a prepared substrate; forming a negatively charged body having a sponge structure under the second electrode; removing spherical polymer particles from the negatively charged body using a toluene solution; allowing metal particles to penetrate into the negatively charged body; forming a positively charged body in a location which is at a predetermined distance below the negatively charged body in order to generate charges; nano-structuring the surface of the positively charged body; coating the nano-structured surface of the positively charged body with second metal particles; forming a ground layer for charge separation while maintaining a constant distance in the downward direction from one side of the positively charged body; and forming a first electrode for charge accumulation in a location which is at a predetermined distance below the positively charged body. Accordingly, the present invention can be miniaturized, can produce high-output energy from minute energy such as a wind, a vibration, or a sound, and can remarkably reduce costs incurred according to energy collection.


A display device is provided. The display device includes: a graphic processing unit rendering strokes; a display displaying an image including the rendered strokes; and a processor identifying a redraw region when a redraw event occurs on the image, and providing rendering information for rendering strokes included in the redraw region to the graphic processing unit, wherein the graphic processing unit renders the strokes included in the redraw region using point primitives on the basis of the rendering information.


A motion estimation method for enhancing a video compression speed, and a video encoder using the same are provided. The motion estimation method includes determining a global motion type of a previous frame from motion vectors of the previous frame, setting a search area for a specified motion block included in a current frame based on the global motion type, and searching for a motion vector within the set search area.

A method for controlling an air conditioner is provided. The method includes calculating an index weight outdoor average temperature by calculating outdoor temperature data over a predetermined period, acquiring position information in which the air conditioner is installed, selecting an appropriate climatic model according to the position information, calculating a comfortable temperature of the day by substituting the index weight outdoor average temperature to the climatic model, setting the comfortable temperature as an indoor target temperature, and controlling a cooling or a heating of the air conditioner so that the indoor temperature reaches the indoor target temperature.


A method for being aware of user-defined context. The method comprises: defining a control command depending on a user input; receiving external audio through a microphone while playing media content; performing speech recognition with regard to the received audio; determining whether the speech-recognized audio corresponds to the control command; and executing a particular action assigned to the control command when the received audio corresponds to the control command. Executing the particular action comprises: pausing the playing of the media content; and displaying text and additional information corresponding to the speech-recognized audio on a display unit.


A display apparatus (300) includes a substrate (100), an inorganic insulating layer (110, 120, 130), a first conductive layer (215c), and an organic material layer (160). The substrate (100) includes a first area (1A), a second area (2A), and a bending area (BA) located between the first area (1A) and the second area (1A). The bending area (BA) is configured to be bent about a first bending axis (BAX) extending in a first direction. The inorganic insulating layer (110, 120, 130) is arranged over the substrate (100). The first conductive layer (215c) extends from the first area (1A) to the second area (2A) passing over the bending area (BA), and is arranged over the inorganic insulating layer (110, 120, 130). The organic material layer (160) is arranged between the inorganic insulating layer (110, 120, 130) and the first conductive layer (215c) and includes a central portion (160a) overlapping the bending area (BA) and a peripheral portion (160b) extending from the central portion (160a). An average thickness of the central portion (160a) is greater than an average thickness of the peripheral portion (160b).
