LG to present next-generation home appliances at CES 2017
LG Electronics (LG) is set to showcase some of its home appliances that utilize “deep learning technology”at the upcoming CES 2017.

LG deep learning technology allow home appliances to better understand their users by gathering and studying customers' lifestyle patterns. This process never ends and improves over time to provide solutions to everyday problems.

Robot Cleaner: Using multiple sensors, LG's robotic vacuum cleaner can recognize objects around the home, such as wires and shoes, and react accordingly. By capturing surface images of different rooms, the intelligent cleaner remembers obstacles and learns to avoid them over time.

Refrigerator: By analyzing usage and eating patterns, LG's smart refrigerator performs tasks by “predicting” the family's activities based on past use patterns. For example, automatically filling the ice tray when cold drinks are most in demand.

Air Conditioner: LG's smart air conditioner analyzes behavior patterns of homeowners, like the area at home most occupied at certain times. With this knowledge, the air conditioner can assess how to provide the most comfortable temperatures efficiently, providing fast cooling for longer periods of time such as the living room or kitchen.

Washing Machine: The new technology helps LG's washing machine learn about the local environment and user activities to provide the optimal washing performance. For example, in areas with hard water, the washing machine adjusts the temperature and the amount of water used to counter the effects of hard water on clothes. In areas where dust storms are common, the washing machine will add another rinse cycle for enhanced cleaning.

Deep learning technology is the next phase in the evolution of smart appliances, according to Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics and Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company.

Even more important than what appliances are capable of will be how companies behave when entrusted with data, Song said. “At LG, we believe performance and convenience do not mean having to sacrifice security and privacy. They can and should exist simultaneously.”
