In 2017, Google founded its People + AI Research (PAIR) team in order to conduct research and develop new technology that would facilitate productive partnerships between humans and artificial intelligence.

In 2019, the team will continue to expand its work for engineers, UX designers, and everyday users.

Other participants in the suit against Qualcomm include Samsung (which has since withdrawn), Apple, Intel, MediaTek, and Huawei. According to Business Korea, it will take several more years for the suit to come to a close.
