Comment from CEO/CTO
Mr. Fujino, CEO and Chief Technical Officer of Fairy Devices commented below on the honor of the award.
“Assume that an AI can see what humans see and hear what humans hear. An intelligence different from human intelligence, equipped with human-like visual and auditory senses, supports humans from different point of view. And the future in which humans do what they excel and AI does what it excels, forming a life partner for each other.We are committed to realizing this vision without compromise. That’s why we have developed a wide range of in-house technologies from designing and developing hardware through OS, middleware, network, cloud, data processing, and machine learning. We are proud of our device, a unique wearable that you wear on neck, which has capabilities equivalent to a smartphone as a single device, being an outstanding pioneer in the global wearables industry.For global penetration, we have simplified LINKLET’s system a lot compared to our highly advanced tech portfolio to respond to the major needs only. It is a great pleasure that this system has been recognized by CES Innovation Awards in 3 different categories.That said, LINKLET is only a beginning of the roadmap to realize our vision. By unlashing a group of backbone technologies and infrastructure that support this system, we can ultimately realize a new world where humans and AI become a natural, true partner. When we look back the present from near future, we would finally understand that what we see now was just a small part of the whole.I’m very delighted to announce this memorable news towards future and share with everyone. See you at CES 2022 Japan Pavilion on Jan 5, 2022.”The CES 2022 Innovation Awards honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/innovation.
