At CES 2020, Samsung introduced a small ball-shaped robot called Ballie that reacts to your needs to be actively helpful around the house.
Ballie’s on-device AI capabilities enable it to be a fitness assistant and a mobile interface that seeks solutions for people’s changing needs. It does all this while maintaining stringent privacy standards, the company said.
“We believe AI is the future of personalized care,” said Sebastian Seung, Executive Vice President and Chief Research Scientist at Samsung Electronics. “We see on-device AI as central to truly personalized experiences. On-device AI puts you in control of your information and protects your privacy, while still delivering the power of personalization.”
Samsung hasn’t shared details yet as to how much it will cost you to purchase your own Ballie or exactly when you might buy one.
