Description

Samsung introduced its vision of robots as "life companions" at this year's Consumer Electronics Show – a tiny, ball-shaped AI device that rolls around the house and responds to commands like a pet dog.

Unveiled on 6 January 2020 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Samsung's small, yellow Ballie robot is designed to act as a personal assistant for the home.

The device uses a mobile interface, on-device artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, voice activation and an in-built camera to recognise and respond to its users, and help them with various household tasks.
