Patcay.com – LG Electronics has announced their latest technology, the Smart Home AI Agent, which will be officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024 on January 9th in Las Vegas, United States.
LG’s AI Agent is described as a specialized assistant robot designed for smart homes. The robot is equipped with advanced multi-modal technology that allows it to move, learn, understand, and communicate with users.
The purpose of developing LG’s AI Agent is to enhance users’ daily lives and realize the vision of a “Zero Labor Home.” With a design featuring two-wheeled legs, the AI Agent can navigate the home independently.
The AI Agent can interact verbally with users and has the ability to express emotions and movements due to its flexible leg joints. Its multi-modal technology combines voice recognition, image processing, and natural language processing, enabling the AI Agent to understand context, commands, and actively communicate with users.
LG’s AI Agent can connect to various Internet of Things (IoT) devices and operate them independently. Collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies has been undertaken to equip the robot with Qualcomm Robotics RB5, bringing various AI features such as user face and voice recognition.
Other key features of the AI Agent include a camera, speaker, and internal sensors to collect real-time environmental data indoors, such as temperature, humidity, and air quality. LG’s AI technology can analyze this data, learn from it, and integrate it with external information.
The AI Agent can also monitor and care for pets when users are not at home, function as a security guard by providing alerts for suspicious activities around the house, and autonomously patrol within the home.
Furthermore, the AI Agent helps save energy by turning off unused devices throughout the home if connected to smart outlets linked to the IoT. When users return home, the AI Agent can welcome them at the front door by analyzing the user’s voice and facial expressions to adjust the mood by playing music or other content.
