Are we about to see a leap forward in AI technology ? Image Credit: YouTube / NEON
The technology giant will be revealing a potentially 'next level' artificial intelligence known as NEON next week.
Amazon Alexa, which sits in your house and accepts voice commands enabling it to play music, activate lights, read news headlines and many other functions, is one of several intelligent personal assistants currently vying for dominance alongside Google Home and the Apple HomePod.

Now though, Samsung has announced that it will be revealing what could be the first truly next generation personal voice assistant at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 7th.

According to a series of cryptic tweets and comments, this new 'artificial human' will be called NEON and it will be a full-on 'artificial intelligence being' that can even serve as your best friend.
Samsung has emphasized that it is completely separate from its existing Bixby assistant.

"Finally, artificial intelligence that will make you wonder which one of you is real," wrote film director Shekhar Kapur. "Coming soon from the brilliant mind of @pranavmistry the amazing @neondotlife where artificial intelligence ceases to be artificial..."

While NEON certainly sounds interesting, we will have to wait until next Tuesday to find out more.

Cortana?  What sci fi show is that from?  That is the name google calls it's equivalent to Alexa, which neither are AI, they are search engines with voice activation and vocal response programs.

Wisdom here. People need to get over control issues and learn to interact with fellow humans in ways other then texting and Twitter.

Most people need other people (desperately). They'd never settle with AI's. So there's nothing to fear. But we are a few people who are anti-social, and who get annoyed by other people. We look forward to artificial no-BS companions, or servants, if you will. There should be something for everybody. Technology should not be dictated by PC.

Well in Japan more men under the age of 35 said they'd prefer a robot girlfriend then a real one so.... Japan is indicative of the urban future of the industrialized world, IMHO. Europe and the US have to a degree paralleled the same trends.

That sounds like some young men can't cope with interacting with another human being.  I hope that is not the trend, if it is, then that episode of Sea Quest where they accidentally find themselves in the future and there are only two people left on the planet, a teenage boy and a teenage girl who have robots to take care of them and spend their days playing a war game, not knowing that they are fighting each other.  I think the human race will perish before anything like that happens if we are headed that direction.

Sounds like just more useless garbage software to me.

Cortana is the AI in the Halo universe. Microsoft named their mobile voice assistant on the xbox Cortana then moved it to the phones. Great example of life imitating art.

OK.  I was wondering where google got that name.  I don't know much about gaming except that my grandsons like to play minecraft together over their headsets (one is 250 miles away and one is 1800 miles away from the one who lives with me)
