Samsung Prepares To Launch ‘Artificial Human’ Called Neon


Samsung is set to launch an "artificial human" at CES 2020 in Las Vegas on Jan. 7.

Samsung announced that it is launching an “artificial human” called Neon at CES 2020 on Jan. 7 and emphasized that it is completely different than its artificial intelligence (AI) assistant Bixby, according to PYMNTS.

Samsung’s Twitter account shared limited information about Neon, but included an “Artificial Human” teaser with the tagline “Have you met an ‘artificial’?” in several languages. 

“Honored to have so much coverage even before we unveil. But contrary to some news, NEON is NOT about Bixby or anything you have seen before,” Samsung tweeted. 

Neon is being developed under Samsung Technology & Advanced Research Labs (STAR Labs) and the effort is being led by president and CEO Pranav Mistry.

How Neon will be different from previously released Bixby is unknown until the CES 2020 in Las Vegas.
