Heralding the next decade as an ‘Age of Experience’, Samsung showcased human-centered technologies and experiences — a personal care robot, AI-powered home of the future, and a smart city driven by Internet of things (IoT) and 5G at the ongoing ‘CES 2020’ conference here.

The ‘Age of Experience’ will transform how we care for ourselves and our family and customise our homes to meet our individual needs.


“In the Age of Experience, we need to rethink the space we have to accommodate our diverse and evolving lifestyles,” said H.S. Kim, President and CEO of Consumer Electronics Division, Samsung Electronics.

“What makes Samsung’s approach unique is the fact that we have a very clear philosophy built around human-centered innovation,” Kim told a packed house here on Monday.

Kim unveiled Samsung’s vision of robots as ‘life companions’, and introduced Ballie, a small, rolling robot that understands you, supports you, and reacts to your needs to be actively helpful around the house.

Sebastian Seung, Executive Vice President and Chief Research Scientist at Samsung Electronics said that Ballie, with its On-Device AI capabilities, is a fitness assistant and a mobile interface that seeks solutions for people’s changing needs.


Samsung Electronics accounted for 11 per cent of the global market for telecom equipment in the third quarter, rising sharply from 5 per cent posted at end-2018, according to the data compiled by industry tracker IHS Markit. Wikimedia Commons

“It does all this while maintaining stringent data protection and privacy standards,” said Seung.

Samsung also showed how a room can be transformed with a screen like its MicroLED display, a convergence of software, AI, IoT and hardware.

“A screen is not a product — it’s your window to the world, allowing you to instantly connect to your loved ones and friends as if they are in the same room,” said Federico Casalegno, Chief Design Innovation Officer of Samsung Design Innovation Center.

“People can see and experience almost everything in the world and even the unknown world through the screen.”

Pointing to increasing global urbanisation, Samsung outlined its smart cities vision, where intelligent systems enabled by smart devices, platforms and data, will make city life much safer and easier.

“Smart cities that utilise AI, IoT and 5G will transform how we interact with the surrounding environment in ways that maximise convenience and enjoyment,” noted Emily Becher, Senior Vice President and Head of Samsung NEXT Global. (IANS)

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

Choose locally sourced material to uplift artisans
Sustainable can be luxurious too, incorporate some native flavour into the decor and theme. With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
