LG OLED, Super UHD TVs To Boast Next-Gen Processors, ThinQ Tech
At CES 2018, LG Electronics will bring to models within its newest lineups of OLED and Super UHD TVs what it says is its most advanced processor to date: the Alpha 9 – as well as Artificial Intelligence (AI) capability, via ThinQ technology – based on the company’s own deep-learning technology, DeepThinQ.
ThinQ allows the implementation of hundreds of voice requests using LG’s open smart platform, as well as offering compatibility with third-party AI services. AI functionality will enable LG TV owners to speak directly into the remote control to enable features of advanced voice assistant technology.
LG’s ThinQ -endowed TVs will also function as smart home hubs, offering access to other smart products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and other connected devices. The company’s ThinQ Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology is what enables this intelligent voice-activated control capability; LG says it has also streamlined the setup process for easier connection to gaming consoles and external sound bars.
