CES2020: A scary future brought to you by Samsung Neon

The Verge awards at CES2020.  (Verge, 1/10/2020)
MOST OVERHYPED: SAMSUNG’S NEON DIGITAL AVATARS In the lead-up to CES, nothing was hyped more than Neon, a somewhat mysterious project from Samsung. We finally confirmed what it is during the show: it’s digital avatars with speech and facial gestures created by computers. That’s intriguing, and Neon has some interesting ideas about what they could be used for, but neither the technology nor the business model is anywhere near ready.
