Samsung to take eight C-Lab start-ups to CESSamsung Electronics will introduce eight in-house artificial intelligence (AI) start-ups at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 to take place next month in Las Vegas, the company said Wednesday.
All eight start-ups are under Samsung’s C-Lab, an in-house incubating program that allows employees to embark on a one-year project to realize a business idea. Samsung will organize an independent booth to present their products and services at the four-day exhibition scheduled to take off on Jan. 9.
All eight of the projects use AI as a core part of their business.
For example, the mobile app SnailSound uses AI technology to remove background noise and provide clear human voices in a tailored way based on the app’s test results of the user’s hearing abilities.
Another app called Medeo uses AI to select the best shots in a video while it is being shot.
Prismit is an AI-based news app that shows news articles of the same topic automatically aligned in the form of a timeline.
The list also includes Girin Monitor Stand, which helps to correct posture while sitting in front of computer screens, and the Alight desk light, which adjusts light in the best way to enhance one’s concentration.
The Perfume Blender suggests the best perfume recipe based on a user’s preferences and also comes with a device to make the personalized perfume.
As well as the eight in-house start-ups that are currently working under Samsung’s C-Lab, eight groups that have already graduated from the scheme will take part in CES 2019 to set up booths of their own.
Among them, three have earned awards from this year’s CES. Since the program’s launch in 2012, C-Lab has produced 36 spin-offs that now conduct business as start-ups outside of Samsung.
