Come for the 8K TV, stay for the health-checking robot.

  This year at CES Samsung celebrated 50 years in the electronics business, and seemed intent on blowing things out with a combination of smart home products, AI and 5G.

  Besides taking a victory lap over its advances in next-gen wireless, the company showed off how AI and machine learning could touch nearly all of the many products it makes.

  Everything from washing machines to its Smart Hub refrigerator, or a connected car has had a touch of Bixby AI applied, and it plans to do more with the technology going forward.

  Samsung closed out the show by giving its first demo of a new robotics project.

  Its plans for AI and smart devices have a long way to go, and what it showed is supposed to only be a preview of what we should expect for its next 50 years.
