Samsung is bringing 8 futuristic projects to CES 2019
Samsung has given a glimpse of the technologies it plans to showcase at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. CES has a reputation for serving innovative technology, and the South Korean giant will continue that tradition with some really advanced AI-based projects. Its Creative Lab will showcase as many as eight projects covering a range of areas. Let's take a look.
'Tisplay' for virtual ads on clothes
With Tisplay, Samsung plans to demonstrate a way to advertise without disrupting the video-watching experience of the audience. The system, when ready and introduced, would allow creators to place ads on their clothing, for instance, T-shirts. The ads would be placed with the help of computer vision and graphics technology and appear as if they were really printed.
MEDEO for instant video recording and editing
Along with Tisplay, Samsung would also showcase MEDEO, a tool for instant recording and editing of high-quality videos. With this service, you'll be able to shoot and edit videos at the same time as AI will do half of the job, including tasks like analyzing scenes and context of the video and adding visual effects and background music according to it.
Grin Monitor Stand for correcting postures
Grin Monitor Stand, as the name suggests, would be a stand for computer monitors, but a slightly different one. It would be equipped with certain sensors, which will tackle the posture of the user, especially their head and neck. So, if the user is in a bad posture, the stand will automatically, but subtly, change its position so that user assumes the right posture.
Perfume Blender to make custom scents
Samsung also plans to showcase a perfume blender to create custom scents. This would be a service, which the user could use to create one good fragrance from the ingredients of their favorite perfumes. However, for this to work, a photo has to be taken with the blender app, which would analyze key ingredients and suggest custom recipes the user might like to create.
Alight for auto-adjusting lights
Alight can be described as Samsung's take on smart lighting with a particular focus on deskwork. The system would come with cameras, which analyzes user actions and adjusts the lights according to them. So, you'll see a different level of light while working (when you have to focus) and different light while simply resting and doing nothing.
PRISMIT for context and history of news
The PRISMIT system would prove handy for searching news on the internet. It would use machine learning and issue-clustering technology to create detailed timelines from articles that are most representative of a particular issue/event. This way, when the user looks up for something, they would get full context and history of the matter and not just the most searched or recent articles.
And, we will see aiMo and SnailSound
Along with this, we will also have aiMo and SnailSound systems. The former is an ASMR sound recording solution that simulates the human ear using a smartphone and cover case, while the latter would use an app and earpiece to help people with hearing troubles.
