LG to accelerate development of AI with own AI chip

Friday 17 May 2019 | 08:49 CET | News

LG developed AI Chip, its own artificial intelligence chip with proprietary LG Neural Engine to better mimic the neural network of the human brain and so greatly improve the processing of deep learning algorithms. The company said it plans to include the new AI Chip in future robot vacuum cleaners, washing machines, refrigerator and even air conditioners. In addition, LG will expand the reach of its AI products through collaborations with outside companies, universities and research laboratories.

 The chip incorporates visual intelligence to better recognise and distinguish space, location, objects and users while voice intelligence accurately recognises voice and noise characteristics while product intelligence enhances the functionalities of the device by detecting physical and chemical changes in the environment.

The chip also makes it possible to implement customised AI services by processing and learning from video and audio data in order to enhance recognition of end-users’ emotions and behaviors and the situational context, the company said.

Products that will use the chip take advantage of the On-Device AI to operate even without a network connection. What’s more, LG’s AI Chip employs a security engine to better protect personal data from external hacking. LG’s chip is designed to enhance the recognition performance in the products it powers such as an advanced image recognition engine for simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM). For example, its powerful image processing function corrects for distortion caused by wide angle lenses and generates brighter and clearer images in dark environments.
