“In addition to existing capabilities like note-taking and picture sharing, a new Family Hub upgrade will allow cameras with artificial intelligence to scan your fridge for items, then update its internal inventory on what you have, what you don’t, and how quickly you tend to use up certain items.

However, over the next year, the Neon team will work on the next version of Core R3, along with a project called Spectra that will add these important traits to Neon, and arguably bring it to life.”
