“We are dissecting Samsung’s Ballie functionalities and capabilities and where AI fits into the picture.
At CES 2020, Samsung brought to stage an envisioned redefinition of the personal home assistant. They called it Ballie.
And rightfully so, as this home literally came rolling in, with its vibrant sun-like yellow.
Ballie is a mobile assistant powered by Artificial Intelligence. Samsung’s short video demonstrating Ballie’s features (a couple of paragraphs down) shows how Ballie interacts with humans, its environment, and a pet dog. The video demonstrates a variety of functionalities that could be facilitated through AI and Machine Learning techniques.
We will kick things off with the detection abilities within Ballie.
From the demo video, we can derive the types of detection systems that are implemented within Ballie’s embedded AI.
– Object Detection
– Face Detection
– Change Detection
Object Detection and Recognition
Ballie is capable of detecting humans, and these detection capabilities extend to animals as well.
We could go further and state that Ballie’s detection system is widely robust.
For it to be as practical as depicted in the demo video, it has to be able to recognize a variety of household items. That’s a lot of training data! Before we go further, let’s define what object detection is.”
