NEON Artificial Humans

At CES 2020, Samsung's STAR Labs research group unveiled Neon, a simulated human assistant, an animated "chatbot" that appears on a screen and learns about people in order to provide intelligent and life-like responses.

These "artificial humans" will be able to give responses to questions in milliseconds. Companies and people will be able to license or subscribe to Neons, with the goal of enhancing customer service interactions.

Said Samsung, "Over time, Neons will work as TV anchors, spokespeople, or movie actors; or they can simply be companions and friends." Samsung indicated that Neon will be beta launched with selected partners later this year.
