Samsung has announced that it will showcase eight new innovative projects at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019. Developed from C-Lab (Creative Lab), Samsung’s in-house startup incubator, the new projects are related to Artificial Intelligence (AI). In addition, eight C-Lab spin-offs will also showcase their newly released commercial products at the event.
The 2019 edition of the annual tech trade show will be held in Las Vegas from January 8 to January 12.
Samsung C-Lab to showcase eight new AI projects
Launched in 2012, C-Lab is Samsung’s in-house idea incubation program that assists its employees with resources to nurture their business ideas into products. The program has so far seen dozens of such innovative ideas being developed into commercial products. And the company will be introducing eight more such projects at the CES early next month.
The eight new C-Lab projects include: Tisplay – an in-video virtual ad service, aiMo – an ASMR sound recording solution, MEDEO – an instant video-making service, PRISMIT – an AI news analysis service, Perfume Blender – a custom perfume making service, Girin Monitor Stand – an auto-adjusting monitor, alight – an AI desk light, and SnailSound – a hearing assistant solution. This will be the largest number of projects unveiled by the C-Lab at a single event since its CES debut in 2016.
In 2015, Samsung introduced the C-Lab spin-off policy. Under this, the company provides support to the ideas that turn into concrete products to further grow into fully-fledged start-ups. Eight of such C-Lab spin-offs will be showcasing their products at the event next month. This includes MOPIC, LINKFLOW, lululab, WELT, Cooljamm company, MONIT, BLUEFEEL and analogue plus. C-Lab has so far given birth to over 30 spin-off companies.
If you’re planning to attend CES 2019, Samsung will have its booths installed between #52102~#52118 in Sands, Hall G (Eureka Park Marketplace) on January 8 – 11, 2019.
