CES 2018 Media Day kicked off with tech giant LG. The day began with I.P. Park, the President and Chief Technology Officer for the company. Mr. Park began by introducing the company's focus for the next, which all seems to focus around seamless integration of all products, but also integration of LG products alongside other companies offerings, as well.
Another big focus was LG's Thinq campaign, which focuses on providing a better form of AI for users, with a specific focus on tailoring the AI to that particular user, with an emphasis on pattern recognition. The pattern recognition algorithm provides a better AI specific to each individual user. With time, Thinq can understand that on Tuesday mornings you go to the gym, and can prepare the bottom section of your washing machine for a small load of athletic apparel the night before. It can also control other devices, outside of the LG ecosystem, though the open nature of the platform, meaning that if you own devices that are not LG, you might still have the ability to include the device in your smarthome.
Along with the tailored AI, LG really is focusing on compatibility of all of its hardware and software to provide the greatest user experience for all consumers who decide to go with LG products. Just like their tagline says, Innovation for a better life. If LG holds to their principle focus for this year, that may just be the reality for all users of their products. We shall see.
