Samsung robot feeds you and helps with the laundry
AI is making stunning inroads in the fields of medicine and science. It is helping to cure disease, combat global warming, grow crops and provide cleaner, cheaper energy.
The robot’s elongated “face” has two eyes that close or expand to convey emotion. A rolling base enables it to move seamlessly around a room. It conveniently can raise itself to place objects on the top shelf of a closet.
The robot is an effort to tailor AI more specifically to the needs of consumers, according to Seung.
“Among many things, your home has taken on a greater significance,” he said. “But what if that home, and those technologies in it, were actually built around you? At Samsung, we’re finding ways to do just that.
A second robot was unveiled at the CES show, held virtually because of the pandemic. Bot Care was designed “to take care of the little details of your life,” according to Seung.
Acting as an assistant and companion, the Bot Handy was shown in a demonstration video chatting with its human companion. At one point, Bot Handy calculates that the person had been on her computer for a long time and needed a break. It later noted the time and advised her of an upcoming meeting, rolling up to her and flipping open a built-in display screen to prepare for a video conference call.
Samsung released no details about when or if these models will be available to the public. No information about pricing was available.
