Televisions have been at the heart of CES since its inception.It seems that the big news related to these devices this time will be Samsung’s frameless display and a flexible LG OLED model that slides from the ceiling.
It is also likely to generate interest in 8K technology, which allows four times more pixels than 4K sets.The Tokyo Summer Olympics are going to be filmed, then, in a “super-high quality” format.And as if the differences between LED, OLED, QLED and microLED are not overwhelming enough, there will be a new technology: Mini-LED, which promises more accuracy, contrast and energy efficiency.
In terms of robots and artificial intelligence, there’s a lot of fabric to cut.The picnic company will display a restaurant machine that can prepare up to 300 pizzas per hour, each with a customized set of ingredients controlled by an application. The idea is to spread to sandwiches, salads and tortillas.Other robots will be focused on keeping us entertained, rather than focusing on the workplace.Elephant Robotics, a company from China, will demonstrate marsCat, a robotic cat that can maneuver with toys, recognize the voice of its owner and even interact with individuals of its kind, but real.
Yukai’sBocco robots are touted as an option for children to send and receive voice messages to their parents in their own language.And they can reveal when a family member has come home, what weather is doing, and whether or not the front door closed properly.Alongside these products, others using facial recognition will be displayed.
In that vein, the Cyberlink specialist will present FaceMe, a system to determine the age, gender and emotional state of passers-by, and thus show them personalized advertising.And then there’s the counterpart: D-ID seeks to thwart facial recognition systems with a program that makes minor changes to photos that people share on social media and prevents computers, but not the human eye, from recognizing people.
