There are also new tools for the novice chef or nutritionist – you can draw a family meal for a week on the calendar for everyone to see, and linking to Samsung’s cooking app provides meal inspiration, automated ingredient sorting, and cooking guides. directed through the 25W speaker of the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, the company’s latest robot vacuum – JetBot 90 AI + – pairs the usual LiDAR array with room meaning and multiple cameras powered by Intel’s image recognition algorithms on the device. We are told that JetBot can identify objects up to 5nm in size and, once it understands what it is looking at, makes decisions on the move about how to handle or weave around them – as needed.
If they are small and round, JetBot can identify objects that need to be spilled, cereals or pet food and plow right through them. And if the object has the telltale visual characteristics of a dog? Well, in this case, JetBot can choose to deviate so as not to smudge your pet’s mess on your otherwise clean floors. JetBot can even detect people; if it happens and you are not around, the vacuum will send you a notification to let you know.
In addition to these smart AI recognition features, you can set JetBot to avoid certain areas and schedule cleaning sessions as always. And perhaps best of all, all the debris that JetBot picks up is dumped in the docking station when they’re done, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the little robot after each trip around your living room.
