“Artificial people” Samsung Neon is already working on smartphones

At CES 2020, Samsung announced a product called Neon, which the South Korean manufacturer has dubbed “artificial man.” The description on the official website says it is “a computationally generated virtual creature that looks and behaves like us.” Now it became known that Neon will be available on smartphones before the end of the year.

The announcement was made on Twitter by Pranav Mistry, CEO of STAR (Samsung Technology and Advanced Research) Labs. He shared photos of the Neon Frame device that “brings the Neon to the real world.”

After that, a well-known insider under the nickname Ice Universe, who often publishes reliable information about Samsung’s new products, asked Pranava Mistry when Neon will appear on smartphones. In response, Mistry replied that Neon was already working on his smartphone. At the moment, the Neon project is undergoing a testing stage, and ordinary smartphone users will be able to get acquainted with “artificial people” in person before Christmas.

Neon is not a voice assistant or a robot. Rather, it is a video chat with a computer person that looks as realistic as possible. The developers note that communication with such “artificial people” will be brought to a completely new level compared to traditional personal assistants, and the time to search for information and the correct answer from Neon is only a few milliseconds.
