LG is one of the first brands to host a keynote speech showcasing some of their latest and best products for the next step of AI technology.
In 2020, LG plans to incorporate the technology into pretty much all aspects of our everyday lives for the coming decade. That’s right, fridges, ovens, TV’s, and pretty much everything else that falls under the LG branding.
The Korean company showed off its 2020 wares to a packed room at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay hotel, with President and CTO I.P. Park touting how LGThinQ artificial intelligence had developed since it was revealed in 2019.
“Here, we can leverage the diversity of our product portfolio because we’ll need many intelligent touchpoints that interact with the user and gather information to understand the ‘why’ and establish causality,” noted Dr. Park. "All this week at CES 2020, we'll be all about the future where anywhere is home," he said, revealing LG's AI slogan for the show.
LG says that it’s heading up its OLED models with three new sets in its GX Gallery series, along with 88-inch and 77-inch Real 8K OLED models. The company is also launching a new 48-inch screen size for its OLED TVs, which may seem tiny compared to the 88 and 77-inch models it’s releasing. Still, a 48-inch TV will be a lot more affordable for the average customer, so no complaints there.
Alongside the new TV’s, we will see the arrival of LG ThinQ AI - a native AI that helps users to control multiple devices with voice commands. Similar to Alexa I presume. This will be incorporated into many of their models alongside Alexa.
LG CLOi robots manage the entire operation from taking orders, cooking, serving and cleaning.
“Potential diners would make reservations remotely via the ThinQ app and browse the menu via a smart speaker, smart TV or smartphone.” - LG Newsroom.
LG OLED TV’s will come with AI ThinQ, which we’ve touched upon, and will have self-lighting pixels to improve picture quality for gaming. Pretty standard as far as OLED goes.
