In robotics Samsung introduced a JetBot 90 AI+, an AI powered Vacuum Cleaner that uses AI, Laser Technology like LiDAR and 3d recognition to integrate and observe the pattern of the objects and their placing and cleaning places that are hard to get without getting caught up in wires. Second, It introduced a Samsung Bot Care, an android AI robot that recognizes the user behavior and responds to them and adapts those mannerisms and behavior and works both as a user companion like a friend and also a robotic help for the user. Samsung Bot Handy, helps user pick up objects and help do home chores like cleaning pouring water or watering plants by Advanced AI learning, and become a version of a user.
