Paris, Jul 10 (PTI) Stressing the importance of responsible AI, Samsung Electronics president TM Roh on Wednesday said it is crucial to strike a balance between pushing the boundaries of AI's capabilities to benefit humanity and its misuse.

"We are proactively collaborating with industry leaders to develop and grow safe and inclusive AI technology so that no one is left out," Roh said.

The Korean tech giant expanded its wearables portfolio with the launch of Galaxy Ring, a health and wellness wearable device powered by Galaxy AI.

"Together with Al-infused connected Galaxy ecosystem, our new products will empower you and enhance your lives. I am excited to share that both Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6 are manufactured at our Noida factory," said JB Park, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia.

The consumer electronics giant also announced the new Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra.

Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra will be available for pre-order in select markets starting July 10, with general availability starting July 24.

"Today, we renew confidence in our relationship with technology and its potential to help society in once unimaginable ways," Roh said at the launch event.

"The impact will be profound," he said.
