Samsung Electronics is showcasing eight innovative new projects related to Artificial Intelligence (AI), developed from its C-Lab(Creative Lab) program. The new C-Lab projects include an auto-adjusting monitor ‘Girin Monitor Stand’, an AI desk light‘alight’, and a hearing assistant solution ‘SnailSound’.
An auto-adjusting monitor stand called Girin Monitor Stand ensures users have proper posture. The sensor embedded stand keeps tracking the user’s posture, especially neck and head, in real-time. When the user has a bad posture, it subtly moves the monitor which naturally trains users to assume better posture without noticing the change in monitor position. Users can correcttheir posture by repeating this pattern to avoid postural strain in the neck, back, and shoulders.
‘alight’ is an AI desk light which provides an optimal environment to increase concentration and provides lighting which isbeneficial for the health of users. It detects user actions through the embedded camera and automatically changes the light according to the situation such as study, relax and focus.
