We all know Samsung is one of the top technological companies, which keeps evolving and introducing new and advanced applications and devices.
NEON created quite a buzz around the world even before its formal introduction, which is to be held in CES 2020 at Las Vegas.
NEON is basically developed by STAR (Samsung Technology and Advanced Research) Labs. NEON is a virtually created human alike chatbot which can show intelligence and emotions, with looks of just as human.
According to company officials, NEON is not like a smart AI assistant but rather like an independent human look like virtual video chatbot, which learn from experiences and also show emotions.
NEON is composed of two technologies, which include Core R3 and Spectra. Core R3 (reality, real time, and responsive) is used for the responses of NEON. It can generate real-time responses and computational reality. The quick and real-time responses of NEON are due to R3, which is estimated at less than a few milliseconds. Spectra is used for the emotions, learning, memory and intelligence. Spectra is still at the development stage and will take time to perform its full abilities, while Core R3 engine will also see more development works.
As Samsung funds the project, so most of the people still think NEON as of next Bixby (Samsung assistant). But STAR Labs clarify this confusion through a tweet in which it explained that although Samsung NEON and Bixby fund the project, they both are two completely different things with no interaction.
NEON is already presented at the CES 2020, and according to company officials, it will be exhibited in the form of a fashion model, news anchor, yoga instructor and banker.
It is available for attendees to see live demonstrations and also can interact with NEON in real-time. According to the company, it can be used as a financial advisor, actor, news anchor, constant companion, TV anchor, health instructor, and teacher.
One of the differences which differentiate NEON from smart AI assistants is that NEON is not interfaced to the internet, unlike AI assistants, and cannot use for playing certain music on the internet or checking weather conditions. NEON is rather used for conversations, goal-oriented tasks, and for some jobs that require human interactions.
