CES 2024 Unveils AI Marvels: AI-Enhanced Adult Toys, Baby Whisperer, Predicting Tech Breakthroughs, and Smart Hair Comb

The world's largest consumer electronics show, CES, concluded on Friday, leaving attendees buzzing about the potential of artificial intelligence (AI).

From merchants and automakers to restaurateurs and producers of chips, CES exhibitors showcased a range of unique AI products that could transform various industries.

While excitement surrounding AI was palpable, some experts cautioned that there is still much work to be done before widespread consumer adoption. Vivek Arya, managing director at Bank of America, noted that the tech industry is still in the early stages of harnessing the power of generative AI. "However, before we figure out use cases, the core infrastructure first needs to be built out," Arya said.

Despite the ongoing development, CES provided a glimpse into the exciting possibilities of AI. Here are four standout AI products that caught the attention of attendees:

1. Predicting the Future: Dutch startup Focus showcased its AI model that can predict major technology breakthroughs based on global patent data. By analysing patent updates, citation rates, and other indicators, Focus can determine the likelihood of success for emerging trends. The company has already made predictions about solid-state batteries, stating that they will not work out as other EV battery technologies are advancing at a faster pace.

2. Hair-Loss Prevention: Hong Kong startup HairCoSys introduced CombAI, a smart comb that analyses hair and scalp health to detect early signs of hair loss. Equipped with an embedded camera, the comb takes pictures of the scalp and hair, providing real-time analysis through a connected app. With an accuracy rate of up to 90%, HairCoSys' AI can identify various hair and scalp problems and recommend suitable haircare products.

3. The Baby Whisperer: Cappella, a startup based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, aims to help parents understand their babies better through AI. By analyzing different markers in a baby's cry, Cappella's AI technology can decipher the baby's needs with over 95% accuracy. The app provides live feeds and notifications, interpreting the cry to determine if the baby is hungry, tired, or uncomfortable. Caregivers can provide feedback to further train the AI if they disagree with its interpretation.

4. AI-Powered Adult Toys: Svakom, a China-headquartered sex toy maker, showcased how AI can enhance intimate experiences. By turning adult videos into structured data, Svakom's AI models learn to adjust the pressure, frequency, and movement patterns of their devices to simulate human sexual activity. While the sex tech industry is still exploring AI, Svakom believes it has great potential, but acknowledges the importance of first getting people comfortable with using sex toys.

As CES 2024 drew to a close, it became clear that AI is poised to revolutionise various aspects of our lives. From predicting the future to improving personal care and enhancing intimate experiences, the possibilities are endless. While there is still much to be done in terms of infrastructure and consumer acceptance, CES provided a glimpse into the exciting future that AI holds.
