Nowadays a lot of Tech companies are getting crazy in AI Technology, and that is the normal thing the AI is the future. Bad or good here the opinions are divided. The truth is that we are going to see more and more AI Technologies ( or the devices that are using the basics of AI, or similar technologies) in our homes. One and a half week ago Samsung introduced its new 85-inch 8K QLED TV which will be using the AI technology based on machine learning, which will analyze the content and automatically upscale the images into 8k quality.
During the CES another two companies LG and Sony also presented their idea of new smarter TV but their “new abilities” are much different than Samsung present. Their TV is going to have Google Assistant installed. What does it mean for the potential customer? Basically, it means that those TV will be fully remoted by the voice. What is more, we will have the ability to connect the TV to google disc, or to control another “smart devices” which are inside our home by giving the comments to the TV. The customer will also have the ability to ask the TV about the program which he/she will watch or ask the TV about the weather or game scores.
The google assistant will all the time (even if it will be turned off) listen what we are saying. Is it ok to you? During the time of possible invigilation from all the sides it won’t help us to be more secure or to have the more private zone, moreover, such private zone might become a really rare thing. From the other side, such progress is needed to develop more and more advanced technologies.
Because such solution that Sony and LG did is very brave ( there will be a lot of bad opinions about such invigilation, in my opinion)
Samsung put a different smart solution which was mentioned above. How is it working? The graph below explains the whole process:
Basically, this AI technology supports three features:
The TV-based on AI Technologies equipped with a database which explores and analyze millions of images to improve the quality of the pictures we are observing. So it converts the lower quality by optimizing with a lot of filters and converting the sources into a high-quality image.
It increases image processing 64 times which ables the TV to project very natural images with the highest quality
It categorizes elements of picture quality such as black/blooming/brightness in input sources to obtain pictures with richer and very detailed contrast.
As we can see the leaders of TV industry LG with Sony and Samsung made a different decision about how to use the AI technologies within their TV’s. I would rather choose the solution of Samsung due to the fact that I don’t really want also my TV to collect so many info about myself and I won’t feel so comfortable with the knowledge that even my TV is all the time carefully listening to me.
