The first is its shift to its DRAMs and SSDs in its data centres and servers, which can apparently make a 7TWh (Tera-Watt-hour) difference in energy consumption.

"Our world looks different, and many of you have been faced with a new reality - one where, among other things, your home has taken on a greater significance", said Sebastian Seung, who heads Samsung Research, the advanced R&D hub for the world's largest memory chip, smartphone and TV producer.

Together, "with AI as the core enabler for your better tomorrow", these 'bots represent Samsung's vision for the future: "Robotics and AI, adapting to you, and helping you do things more easily at home, and outside of it".

The new four-door model will be available across North America this spring.


The company's new 110-inch MicroLED display, which uses self-lit inorganic LED technology (March availability); it also features 4Vue (Quad View) allowing four-way viewing on the single screen. In the USA it will include 160 and more free TV channels that are available through Samsung TV Plus. As per the company, the Samsung 110-inch MICRO LED will be released globally this spring.

Lifestyle TV: Samsung's cutting-edge lifestyle TV lineup includes The Serif, The Frame, The Sero and The Terrace-a recently launched 4K QLED outdoor TV-as well as Samsung The Premiere, a cinema-like quality 4K laser projector.

SmartThings Cooking: A new service from Samsung SmartThings is created to make your culinary journey seamless. Smart fridges helped with remote shopping and meal prep. Smartphones were indispensable.

Focusing on life at home with COVID-19 forcing work from home and education from home, Samsung announced SmartThings Cooking with a meal planner that uses AI to recommend meals for the week and a Health Trainer to combine with 2021 Samsung TVs. Its Smart Trainer feature utilizes USB camera connected with TV, giving feedback on form and calculating calories burned. With video and interactive training via Bixby-enabled voice control, Samsung Health Smart Trainer elevates and personalizes the home workout experience.


All combined this lets this vacuum robot identify the objects it needs to avoid, from cables to toys, as well as recognize the shape of your room to more effectively manoeuvre around it.

The JetBot 90 AI+ can also be used as a home monitoring device using the device's SmartThings integration and camera.

The white design and monochromatic digital interface of the Bot Handy and the Bot Care are strikingly reminiscent of EVE from the Pixar movie WALL-E, and we hope that the robots themselves will be similarly pleasant or else 2020 will just have been a warm-up for a dystopian event of a different nature. The JetBot 90 AI+ will navigate across your house using a combination of sensors and AI-enhanced object recognition technology.

Samsung is also developing Samsung Bot Retail, an equivalent device to guide customers around retail stores.
