While I’m here looking for the physical platform of the future, CES 2018 has already proven that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is really the technology that people should be paying attention to over the course of the next year. AI is not a new concept, per se, but the implementation of the technology on a broader scale into the product that consumers use every single day is, and that idea was on full display during the LG press conference on Monday in Las Vegas.
Several new products were talking about during the South Korean company’s event, but the clear theme of the day was the role that LG’s new AI platform—called DeepThinQ technology (pronounced Thin-Q)—will have in its entire product line moving forward.
“DeepThinQ is the embodiment of our open philosophy—to provide the most powerful AI solutions to our customers via a strategy of open platform, open partnership and open connectivity,” Dr. I.P. Park, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics, told the gathered media. “ThinQ will completely change the way consumers use our products because ThinQ products will learn about them to provide intelligent services, not the other way around.”
