The recently concluded LG Smart Home Convention 2019 points to the continuous rise in AI-powered connected home appliances. Big data, machine learning and cloud platforms enable data collected across millions of connected devices to be used to provide predictive analytics that are then imputed into these appliances. This allows the appliances to acquire a new level of intelligence that helps humans to better manage their daily tasks at home from anywhere in the world. Smart household appliances are now able to make intelligent and relevant recommendations on a myriad of things - be it content, grocery lists, events to attend, recipes to make, hotels to book, clothes to wash, outfits to wear, etc.

At the convention, The Fast Mode spoke to Kim Kyutae, the Managing Director of LG Electronics Malaysia on the increasing use of AI in these appliances. Kim shared his views on the rise of connected home appliances and the various technologies, including cloud platforms that enable every user to experience the best of today's connected 'things'. The following is the interview:
The LG Smart Home Convention 2019 saw some of LG's own AI-powered products, namely the LG OLED TV and LG NanoCell TV being demonstrated. The TVs feature enhanced picture and sound via the LG ThinQ AI platform which enables the TVs to self-analyse and self-optimize source content, adjust brightness to room lighting, optimise sound and listen and act on consumers’ command. Apart from its range of AI TVs, LG also incorporates artificial intelligence in its AI DD Front Load washing machine. The sensors in the machine detect the weight of the load as well as the characteristics of the clothes and based on 20,000 accumulative data, recommend the most suitable washing pattern.
