The Samsung 'Ballie' robot was shown off by the technology brand at CES 2020 as a new roving solution for the home that would offer inhabitants a way to streamline their everyday routine. The rolling robot would work by activating specific smart solutions in the home according to the needs of the user by analyzing scenarios using artificial intelligence (AI). This could include turning on appliances, adjusting lighting and more without the need for any commands from the user.
Executive Vice President and Chief Research Scientist Dr. Sebastian Seung spoke on the Samsung 'Ballie' robot saying, "We believe AI is the future of personalized care. 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.”
