CES 2020 has barely started in Las Vegas, but it seems like everyone’s already talking about one company: Neon, a mysterious new venture funded by Samsung with their artificial human CORE R3.
CES in Las Vegas is the annual conclave put on by the Consumer Technology Association where the world’s leading innovators, big and small, go to dazzle the tech world with their latest innovations. This year, a division of Samsung called Neon is sucking all the oxygen out of the room with something they are calling CORE R3, an artificial human that as you can see from the main photo, is eerily lifelike. The world at large is catching up to the book of Revelation at a frightening pace, it would seem.
“And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” Revelation 9:6 (KJV)
All the major tech companies, (remember when Google was just a search engine started by college nerds?), are spending billions and billions of dollars to create a virtual world that is capable of stepping out from behind the screens of our computers and smart devices, to interact with us in real-time. They have been stunningly successful towards reaching that goal, and honestly, they are just getting warmed up.
We live in a day and time where we have become cyborgs, literally, as we have tied ourselves to our digital devices to such an extent that we cannot imagine live without them. We have become one with them, and that is the very definition of what a cyborg is. Welcome to the future, and buckle up.
Samsung Neon asks ‘Have You Met An Artificial?’
FROM CNET: Samsung has been tweeting out teasers over the past three weeks, hinting at something new to come. “Have you ever met an ‘Artificial?'” Neon tweeted several times since its Twitter account launched in December. Its LinkedIn page says it’s “bringing science fiction to reality” and has “the mission to imagine and create a better future for all.”
Heading into CES, little was known about Neon, beyond the fact it’s run by Pranav Mistry, the Samsung research exec who in October was named CEO of Samsung’s Bay Area-based Technology and Advanced Research Labs (aka STAR Labs).

On Saturday, Mistry tweeted out two photos of what appears to be an avatar, or ‘artificial human’ that he called “CORE R3.” And unlisted videos, spotted on Reddit and compiled into a video by the Good Content tech page on YouTube, show various other human-like avatars that look a lot like real people.
“It can now autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data,” Mistry tweeted.
The hints have caused people to speculate on what Neon could actually be. Could it be a replacement for Samsung’s Bixby smart digital assistant? (Neon shot that theory down pretty quickly.) Will it show up on Samsung devices? Does this mean we’re soon going to be living in a real-life version of HBO’s Westworld?
Many Samsung watchers expected the company to unveil Neon at its CES keynote Monday at 6:30 p.m. PT. But Neon won’t actually be a part of the keynote.
As companies like Google, Amazon and, yes, Samsung have discovered, the key to actually making smart devices useful is packing in artificial intelligence, typically in the form of voice assistants. Every tech heavyweight is investing in these assistants because they’re heralded as the future of how we’ll interact with our gadgets. The ultimate promise for the smart technology is to predict what you want before you even ask — or make you forget you’re not interacting with a real human.
“While films may disrupt our sense of reality, ‘virtual humans’ or ‘digital humans’ will be reality,” he told Mint in late December. “A digital human could extend its role to become a part of our everyday lives: a virtual news anchor, virtual receptionist or even an AI-generated film star.”
Two years ago, Samsung said it would spend $22 billion on AI by 2020 and would employ 1,000 AI specialists by the same time frame. It has opened AI centers around the globe to work on solving problems for making technology smarter. READ MORE

When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 13,131 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
