LG: Artificial intelligence will run more homes in 2018
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has long been a hotly debated topic, with some pundits claiming that it poses a grave threat to humanity while others believe that AI systems can help humans improve productivity and conditions around them. For technology company LG Electronics (LG), AI is being harnessed to achieve the latter.
The recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas saw a smorgasbord of personal computing wearables, smartphones and home appliances. And LG, through its Open Partnership, Open Platform and Open Connectivity strategy, is an emerging leader in this exciting field. The brand also showcased a diverse lineup of smart products that shows the world that LG is working to move technology forward while improving daily life for consumers worldwide in 2018 and beyond.
LG’s extensive portfolio of smart appliances comes with Google assistant capabilities. As of this writing, there are nearly 90 LG smart appliances that seek to deliver a simple yet future-ready connected smart home experience.
Some of the price competitive Wi-Fi connected home appliances in LG’s roster include: washing machines and dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, vacuums and air purifiers, among others. With these appliances in the home, domestic life becomes an interactive and intuitive experience.
The beauty of the smart home lies in the hands-free operation of these appliances with the help of Google Assistant. Homeowners can now use simple voice commands on their phones to check the time remaining during wash cycles, for example, or turn off their range after cooking. Running a household with this technology is made simpler and more convenient for the on-the-go lifestyles of today. Setup is user-friendly and convenient with the free LG SmartThinQ app, which allows users to control the entire lineup of LG smart appliances.
While not all smart appliances will be available yet in the Philippines, there are those that already made its way to a number of Filipino homes, such as the LG InstaView Door-in-DoorTM (DID). This smart refrigerator model allows users easy access to favorite food items by simply knocking on the mirrored glass panel twice. This innovation reduces cold air loss by up to 41%, making food stored in the refrigerator stay fresh longer. LG InstaView DID is also equipped with LG SmartThinQ. This allows users to set the refrigerator temperature, control HygieneFRESH+ and diagnose the refrigerator with a simple tap on the user’s smartphone.
But with further AI developments in the horizon, LG’s smart home appliances will be better equipped to predict the user’s needs. Its adaptive technology interprets usage habits and data to the point that LG smart appliances will know when to alert owners to order filter refills for the refrigerator or air purifier, as well as troubleshoot lint build-up in the dryer.
With these innovations, the future of artificial intelligence and smart homes indeed looks bright.
