There is a growing need for Security Solutions that stretched Beyond just one product we need to protect multiple devices and the data they share across your entire ecosystem with that in mind Samsung is uniquely positioned to bring the industry’s most holistic security solution to the entire device

Experience from many be when we when you set up a device to when it becomes part of your connected home through smart things that solution is Samsung nox originally created 10 years ago as a mobile security platform Samsung nox has become so much more Samsung nox has evolved into a true Multi-Device security

Platform take nox Matrix it has evolved from a protecting connect your connected devices to offering true end to end encryption across Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets and starting this spring nox Matrix will also extend to protect Samsung Smart TVs and family Hub refrigerators with nox Matrix devices

Will be able to monitor each other for security threats and can actually isolate a compromised device to keep the rest of your connected devices safe and of course your connected devices often contain your most important data so we are also expanding nox Vault to more products and democratizing our security Innovations

Too and now the Galaxy a series will get the same protection that our galaxy S and Z series already enjoy Hardware level tamper resistance security for the most sensitive information like PIN codes pass passwords and patterns and since last year Samsung neq LED AK TVs are also protected by KNX

Vault we also know that robust security calls for collaboration since we are stronger and safer when we work together our partners and leading security researchers help us identify vulnerabilities proactively address threats and set new standards for privacy your way that includes features like our security and privacy dashboard and auto

Blocker which provide transparency control of your over your data on the latest Galaxy devices in an increasingly connected World Samsung remains committed to protecting your data and democratizing Cutting Edge security privacy demands strong security and we will continue evolving and innovating to keep you and your connected ecosystem

Safe so you can live life on your terms thank [Applause] you Please welcome to the stage inhe Chun vice president of corporate sustainability Center at Samsung [Applause] Electronics hello everyone it’s great to be back last year I shared how Samsung is using Innovation and Partnerships to safeguard guard our future that included changes to our manufacturing and operations which contribute towards a low carbon circular economy while we are continuing to fulfill these commitments we’re also

Expanding our efforts to build resource circularity to our devices from how they’re designed to how we use them at home and finally how they’re reused and recycled we start by incorporating recycled materials into some of our most loved products such as recycle fishing nets in our galaxy smartphones recycled plastic in our TVs

And recycled aluminium in our bespoke refrigerators recycled plastic accounted for 14% of the total plastic used in our products in 2022 we’re working towards increasing this amount we’re also mindful of the impact our products make during their use when you’ve unboxed your latest phone TV or Appliance for example

Features like smart things AI energy mode can immediately help you manage energy at home by harnessing connected intelligence in fact our data suggests that the number of smart things energy users worldwide has increased by more than 75% in 201 23 and at Samsung we’ve always believed that Innovative collaboration can create

Unique new ways to improve our Collective impact so today I’m excited to share that smart things energy is now integrated with Tesla power wall solar inverter and wall connector EV charging Solutions what this means for example is that smart things energy can enable Tesla power W storm watch to notify you

Before a severe weather event on your mobile phone or on your TV furthermore smart things can help prepare for power outages by activating energy saving automations like AI energy mode for heat pumps appliances and TVs to extend the power wall backup Reserve pretty cool right well we’re also introducing a new

Partnership with us energy leader Southern Company to bring the benefits of smart things and smart things energy not just to individual homes but to entire neighborhoods starting this year in Mississippi this is one of the first steps in our broader partnership with Southern Company to provide a smarter

And more sustainable future where your home works with a grid for enhanced performance and reliability all of these Technologies offer energy and cost savings when you’re using your devices but once you’re done using a device its Journey isn’t over reuse and recycling are major priorities at Samsung programs like

Certifi renewed here in the US and in select European countries offer refurbished phones for a more affordable price while Galaxy upcycling helps you reuse or purpose your old phones in Creative new ways speaking of upcycling let me share with you our work with Partners like the

Dlab at MIT and Quaker to develop new useful ways to upcycle Samsung devices and divert them from becoming electronic waste or e-w together we’re teaming up with communities in Africa where the impact of ews can be felt the most to share sh more about this intriguing project let’s hear from Amy

Smith founding director of the daab at MIT daab is a 21-year-old academic research and fieldwork program that develops collaborative approaches and practical solutions to Global poverty challenges I’m here today to tell you about our newest program designed for Second Life Innovations this program is focused on upcycling electronic devices to create a

Transform impact in lowincome communities we are grateful to be working with longtime Community Partners kulika Uganda TW Innovation Center in Tanzania and the youth social advocacy team in Uganda and South sudam these efforts are part of our creative capacity building program it’s a methodology developed by daab and

Implemented by our partners to enhance people’s creativity and build their confidence in developing technologies that can improve their lives working with you used digital devices is new to us and we’re excited for MIT students and our Community Partners to collaborate through our digital portals on upcycled Samsung TVs and to design

Alternative uses for upcycled Galaxy devices together we can give New Life to Samsung devices in innovative ways to create income generating and labor saving opportunities while also enhancing the agency resiliency and self-determination of these communities many thanks to our project sponsors KOA and S Son thank you

Recognition to avoid getting stuck on cables or rugs while identifying specific spaces like bathrooms and entrances and doorways our Innovations with screen equipped appliances featur AI are made possible through our outstanding AI chip specifically made for Samsung appliances and ties in OS advancements that support this now Technologies like these solve

Pain points but they also have the power to change how we think about chores and how we take care of ourselves and our families AI is going to help us work explore and create differently too whether it’s exchanging ideas or collaborating with others we all could use a boost to get the most

Out of our days that’s why we recently reimagined our Flagship notebook Galaxy book 4 of course today’s laptops are powerful tools already and they play a central role in our personal and professional lives yet with better seamless connectivity across devices we believe we can make these tools even better

Partners making routine bass a breeze so you can focus on those l stier to-do list items unveiled in December our new galaxy book 4 Series is our most connected and intelligent lineup of Galaxy books yet the galaxy book 4 Series is equipped with a new Intel Core Ultra processor

That features a newly added neural Processing Unit the galaxy book 4 ultra also comes with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 47d laptop GPU these components enable unmatched new AI capabilities and help boost your productivity but we’re not done here at CES I’m happy to share the latest developments for our continued partnership with

Too if you’re welcoming A New Roommate or your kids are home for the holidays smart things provides a QR code to get them signed up once everyone is on board smart things knows how your routines should be but it also knows when something’s different and maybe even unsafe using smart sensors with AI

Capabilities in your home combined with the understanding of your living environment and routines smart things can detect unusual circumstances such as a fall then it can inform designated family members and caregivers by sending emergency alerts and what about our furry friends the newly launched Galaxy smart

Tech 2 attaches easily to a color or a harness to track their activity and can digitally store information like name and address if they are lost now your smart home is ever more Dynamic where the capabilities of smart things are combined with the power of Bixby two key Technologies make this

Possible Multi-Device wakeup enables all the relevant devices to hear your requests but only the most appropriate one knows to respond and Samsung devices connected to smart things share a protocol to communicate with each other and understand required tasks so Bigby understands what you really want when

Intelligence you will see and experience the difference in your home under go and everywhere in between speaking of device Innovation I hope you’ll all stay tuned for f wi stor for you next year thank you and have [Applause] Graus W It could be it could be a New Hello and welcome back we just watched Samsung CES 2024 keynote and there is a lot to discuss the thing that is top of mind for me is we got a new an updated version of the Bali robot uh I talked about this in the pre-show but did not

Expect it to come up so I’m very excited uh this new Bali is described as a little companion the quote they used was bring home your new companion um it can hang out with you project visuals which I thought was really cool it can interact with other devices like it can

Turn off your lights that kind of thing AR what are your thoughts on this I love that all of our robot dreams are coming true today our wish list items have become a reality um I also love the fact that the crowd seem to like audibly like

A when it came on so who doesn’t love a cute little robot that can help you out and do things I think the the pet compan Canon element or like helping to you know make check on your pet is a really cool way to make the seam functional and

Like a like a nice to have you know um but yeah I I’m curious to know uh more details about when it’ll be kind of rolling out me too rolling out rolling I’m going to keep saying it I’m going to keep saying that it’s the one I got and

I’m going to use it yeah I love it um I I totally agree with you I’m really excited to hear more information about it and we also wanted to hear from you all about what your ideal robot would do uh so we asked you we asked you a poll

What function would your ideal robot carry out a household chores B work assistant C friend or D pet and ABR what are those results looking like okay this is not too much of a shock I think the only thing that I’m Amazed by is the margin here because for household chores

70% of you said household chores none of us want to do these things that are so mundane and so boring so I fully understand uh then 15% of you said work assistant which makes sense I kind of would have expected maybe like a little bit more

There but I think we’re also all scared of robots taking over our jobs so I totally get it the hesitancy there uh 8% said friend and 6% said pet and that’s interesting to me because we talk a lot about like robot pets like when I was a

Kid I had a little robot dog toy you know and it was so cute um but we’re not into Pets As for robots I mean I get it it’s not a living thing I’m not that shocked but that number is really low you don’t want

I agree I feel like it it sort of reveals this like interesting um this interesting takeaway which is like we maybe we don’t want robots to to take those like human and pet things away right now exactly yeah like we still want the connection which is good I’m

Glad to hear that we all still want to be around living things that is a very real feeling so those those results are very interesting the other buzzword we of course heard during the keynote um was AI um a lot about AI in the smart

Home how AI Works to kind of map your home and um and then be incorporated to into other devices like that smart vacuum that can like detect what type of floor it’s on um so not a huge surprise there also we heard about Ai and Bixby Bixby was another thing we hadn’t heard

About for a few years she made a comeback she made a comeback um we heard about her today um and just how like relevant devices will be able to hear your voice in your house and and the most relevant one will respond back to you that was interesting to me um how

Did you feel about the Samsung AI discussion today there’s a lot there to unpack there’s a lot and I think you know it’s one of those scenarios where a lot of the things that they talked about are Concepts that or products that have been out but it’s but it’s you know

Punching in that AI element and so like let’s just reemphasize that we have ai in our products and our services we’re going to talk about it um but I think you know the the smart home is a really um you know it makes sense there because that’s you know that’s where you want

Things to be smart and and you want the right devices to respond to you want your devices to um make your life easier what’s the point in spending a ton of money on a smart home appliance if it’s not doing what you need it to dot if things aren’t communicating the way that

They need to be communicating so I think there’s just like a lot of potential there um and again like you know we saw with LG like uh AI in in in appliances we’re seeing it with Samsung we’re seeing it in in smart things so um it

Just it clicks there it’s a big theme yeah it’s probably gonna continue to be a big theme this CES the other thing I thought was interesting about Samsung’s discussion of AI was how it needs to be secure it needs to keep all of our devices and data all the data that they

Share very secure and protected it talked about Samsung nox as sort of like the answer to that and something I thought was really interesting is it said that this Samsung nox platform will protect Samsung Smart TVs and family Hub refrigerators which makes me wonder bra how do you feel about a fridge needing

Data security protection in this day and age that we are in yeah I’m often worried about security risks to my refrigerator it’s something keeps me up at night uh so I’m really glad I don’t have to think about that anymore um I just think it’s so funny I mean I guess

It makes sense because again our these appliances are smart and they um are connected right they’re all connect it’s not just sitting there it’s it’s all connected and so I security to see that kind of go from just Security on your phone or your device to something like

You know an appliance this is the age we’re living this 2024 baby we’re just going to see it more yeah we are here I I totally agree I think like if the fridge has the data it definitely should be protected exactly I didn’t necessarily think we’d see a day where

The fridge has the data but it does so this is the age we’re living in we’ll keep her protected what a time to be alive I know what a time to be here um the other thing that I thought was cool was the smart things Hyundai collaboration um so the smart things uh

App will work with your vehicle so that you can remotely open and close your car windows change the temperature in Cabin I thought that was really cool cuz I feel like it’s a scary paranoia that I have that like I accidentally left my window open so absolutely great to be

Able to see that from home and it also works the opposite way so if you’re in your car you can like change the temperature in your home which I thought was cool but BR what did you think of that collaboration that’s very cool that makes maybe I’m biased cuz I’m feeling

Chilly and I want to be warm and I’m like that sounds nice bump up yeah exactly is the season for that um I think that’s cool I think you know again this idea of of finding practical ways to make those Integrations it’s a random integration you’re like what what are

They what’s this collab but it it works I mean if they find something that they can each bring to the table um clearly they can do that here so I’m again where the cars are just going to keep making an appearance it seems like uh for the foreseeable future all these companies

Are trying to get a piece of the pie here I totally agree we heard about more car stuff we heard about I think like an update to the smart car platform that Samsung introduced last year and just how it can better detect how you’re doing cognitive alertness give you more

Personalized alerts it can also distinguish between a child and adult for safety stuff like airbags which was really interesting so that’s really smart too I think that’s just genius that safety element is really the selling point totally totally yeah there was navigation stuff too with like being able to see directions and and

Indicators like on the on the windshield on the dash which is cool yeah I think the alertness element is really important too cuz there’s so many distractions you’re like on your phone or you’re like the changing picking the perfect song and Rising your life while doing so not great it’s not worth it

Yeah so cars are are perhaps shaping up to be another big theme at this year’s CS we’ll see it’s still early but we definitely heard about them today uh what else did we get we got a bespoke AI laundry combo that automatically senses fabric types and makes adjustments as

Need needed so again AI everywhere uh we got a new Galaxy 4 book which has some in interesting integration with co-pilot what did you think of that ABR yeah I thought this is cool because you know we’re going to be hearing a lot more about co-pilot and Microsoft um recently

Are they announced that they’re adding a co-pilot key to Windows computers and it’s the first time that Windows is getting a new key in 30 years which is like a really big deal and you’re seeing this in you know a lot of like some of the Dell computers will have them the

Surface laptops will eventually have them a lot of these computers um will get them and so seeing kind of uh Samsung find ways to integrate co-pilot um in other ways as well like this is really something that’s just going to be everywhere as we all kind of just get

Used to the fact that that these AI assistants are are just going to be they’re not going anywhere obviously so to have easier access and easier integration I think is just very very telling totally I totally agree um the other themes that reemerged were sustainability and accessibility so we

Heard about this in a prior press release but smart things energy and Tesla are integrating uh so that you can use smart things to keep track of energy production from your car that sort of thing uh and yeah we heard about accessibility in terms of again the

Announcements that we already got so um audio subtitles and the relumino mode split screen update which I was just happy that they reemphasized it yeah I’m glad that they still kind of very much leaning into that and and continuing to update things that’s a good sign when

It’s not just a onetime thing that was announced at a show a while ago and then you never hear from them again I’m glad that they’re continuing to build upon that I totally agree continuing to make it the best that it can be uh I think those were the major things the other

Things were again stuff that we’ve heard about that fridge that like keeps track of what you’re putting inside of it the vacuums I feel projector the fridge would judge me like the fridge would be like your fridge is pathetic and you need to go grocery shopping and you need

To cook more because this is sad you have like day old fries some baby carrots and like a smoothie it’s so real I feel like mine would judge me too I’m already like I’m thinking of all the things in my fridge right now that I know are expired I think it would just

Make me feel worse cuz I I already know I just put myself on blast right now but my fridge would also put me on blast so I think I’m yeah no that’s that’s very real I don’t know I don’t know if we need it’ll see I’m going to pass and

Then I don’t have to worry about security ARR to my fridge so it’s a win-win really yeah think I I totally agree um I think those are all of the major things from today this was so much fun watching with you guys and chatting about all of this uh you can

See us back here at 4:45 p.m. Pacific time and we will do a pre-show for Sony so we’re so excited and thank you again for Watching
