LG Electronics (LG) unveiled its innovative smart home artificial intelligence (AI) agent at CES 2024. LG’s smart home AI agent boasts robotic, AI and multi-modal technologies that enable it to move, learn, comprehend and engage in complex conversations. An all-around home manager and companion rolled into one, LG’s smart life solution enhances users’ daily lives and showcases the company’s commitment to realising its “Zero Labor Home” vision.

With its advanced ‘two-legged’ wheel design, LG’s smart home AI agent is able to navigate the home independently. The intelligent device can verbally interact with users and express emotions through movements made possible by its articulated leg joints. Moreover, the use of multi-modal AI technology, which combines voice and image recognition along with natural language processing, enables the smart home AI agent to understand context and intentions as well as actively communicate with users.

Functioning as a ‘moving’ smart home hub, this AI agent connects with and controls smart home appliances and household IOT devices. Through LG’s latest collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, the AI agent is equipped with the Qualcomm, Robotics RB5 Platform, enabling powerful on-device AI features such as face and user recognition. The AI agent utilises its built-in camera, speaker and various sensors to gather real-time environmental data, including temperature, humidity and indoor air quality. LG’s advanced AI technologies analyse this data, continuously learning and combining it with external information. The AI agent can even act as a pet monitor and security guard, providing users with the ability to see and care for their pets remotely and sending alerts if any unusual activity is detected.

What’s more, the LG smart home AI agent offers exceptional versatility and scalability. For example, it can autonomously patrol the home when no one is there, moving from one room to another and sending notifications to the user’s smartphone if it finds an open window or any lights left on. Additionally, it can help conserve energy by connecting with a smart outlet and turning off unused devices throughout the house.

When the user returns home, the AI agent greets them at the front door, discerns their emotions by analysing their voice and facial expressions, and selects music or other content to suit their mood. It also assists users in their daily lives by providing transportation details, weather updates, personal schedules or reminders to take medications.

“Our groundbreaking smart home AI agent combines cutting-edge autonomous mobility and AI technologies with advanced communication capabilities and services to help free customers from household chores,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “A smart life solution company, LG will continue to help customers experience a smarter, more enjoyable life at home.”

While the availability of LG’s smart home AI agent in South Africa has not been confirmed yet, LG Electronics South Africa is continuously evaluating its product line-up to potentially offer it to our customers in the future.
