5 AI Products You Won’t Want to Miss

Overview The appetite for artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow, and CES® 2020 saw a number of innovative solutions that highlight the increasing power and diversity of applications of AI.

From home to car to workplace, AI is playing an ever-expanding role in smart products, making lives more efficient and more convenient. Integrated into business processes and personal use cases alike, AI is poised to drive innovation for various industries.

At CES 2020, many AI companies put impressive AI applications on display. Here are five that are changing the game.

 

BrainCo Prosthetics

BrainCo built an AI-aided prosthetic hand that is controlled via the wearer’s brain waves and muscle signals. With surprisingly dexterous movements, the new prosthetic could be an affordable, game-changing technology that allows users more freedom than traditional prosthetics.

At CES, the BrainCo team showed how the hand can be used for various tasks beyond simply shaking hands. Even fine motor skill movements, such as writing calligraphy and playing the piano, are now accessible to those who need the prosthetic.

 

SelfieType

Samsung C-Labs’s invisible mobile keyboard, SelfieType, provides a virtual space for users to type on any surface in front of a propped up cell phone screen. The phone uses its camera to track your fingers, and artificial intelligence helps translate those movements into keystrokes based on the QWERTY keyboard.

The solution will prove helpful for smartphone and tablet users who still find the tiny touchscreen keyboard difficult to use. 

 

Whisk

Whisk, an AI-powered app, scans the contents of your refrigerator to recommend creative recipes based on research from more than 100 nutritionists, food scientists, engineers and retailers.

The technology, which works with Samsung, Walmart, Unilever and Kraft, among others, will not only make meal prepping more convenient, but will also help reduce food waste. Users are also able to share shopping lists and favorite recipes with others.

 

HeardThat

Singular Hearing founder and CEO wanted to address noise issues with hearing aids through machine learning. The company’s app, HeardThat, uses AI to tune out background noise, which enables users with hearing loss to hear speech more clearly.

AI algorithms are able to separate normal speech patterns from noise so that those who have hearing impairment can fine-tune their hearing aids beyond simple volume adjustments.

 

Envision

Startup Envision is a smartphone app that empowers blind and low-vision users to be independent by narrating the world around them. The prototype works with smartphones as well as smart glasses, and it turns a user’s smartphone camera into the user’s eyes.

AI helps to identify the visual information at which the camera is pointed, including food packaging, posters and display screens. Users are also able to use the app to scan and look for people and things around them. The app can learn faces of friends and family for easy recognition.
