How AI can fundamentally change the business landscape

10 Dec 2018

LG Electronics (LG) provided insight on the current state of AI technology and what it could mean for life, both inside and outside the workplace. 

Mohammed Ansari, senior vice president and general manager of the LG Silicon Valley Lab, participated in the discussion, joined by other global AI experts, sharing their views and knowledge on AI development and implementation.

Delivering a tech insider's take, Ansari noted that progress in creating relevant technologies, or lack thereof, is largely determined by specific factors in each sector.

He also cited a shortage of data and insufficient know-how as key issues preventing many companies from advancing and deploying AI solutions. 

LG is supposedly finding ways to overcome such obstacles, seeking out innovative methods for turning raw data into useful information and viable technical solutions.

Ansari Says, “This is an extremely interesting if not pivotal time to discuss how AI is being deployed and leveraged, both in business and at home.”

The contributors explored several topics related to AI in the home and workplace including how brands are currently incorporating AI into appliances and other household products, how AI differs from smart technology, and why some people are hesitant to integrate intelligent systems into their lives. 

And, of course, how AI can improve the human experience by making time for the things that really matter.

Ansari says, "LG ThinQ products are designed to provide a more personalised experience the more they are used, offer a seamless connection for the user both throughout their business and beyond, and are compatible with different platforms in order to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our customers, making their lives freer and easier.” 

“We hope to implement next-generation AI technologies to provide for a fully integrated digital-physical environment.”

Digital lifestyle influencer Carley Knobloch says, "The company's unique strategy is what makes LG ThinQ stand out from the crowd. 

“LG's AI solutions for home and business have the potential to transform daily life for the better.”
