Neon’s super realistic digital people are real. Well, sort of.
The mysterious company, emerging from the Samsung Technology and Advanced Research Labs (aka STAR Labs), debuted late Monday at CES 2020 here in Las Vegas. It described its technology, also called Neon, as “a computationally created virtual being that looks and behaves like a real human, with the ability to show emotions and intelligence.”
Basically, Neon makes video chatbots that look and act like real people. Neons aren’t all-knowing smart assistants, androids, surrogates or copies of real humans, the company said in an FAQ shared with reporters. They can’t tell you the weather or how old Abraham Lincoln was when he died.
“Neons are not AI assistants,” the company said. “Neons are more like us, an independent but virtual living being, who can show emotions and learn from experiences. Unlike AI assistants, Neons do not know it all, and they are not an interface to the internet to ask for weather updates or to play your favorite music.”
