LG Electronics is set to showcase its new smart home Artificial Intelligence (AI) agent at the upcoming CES 2024. The AI agent features a combination of robotics, AI, and multi-modal technology, which allows it to move around, learn from its environment, comprehend complex language, and engage in detailed conversations. This product is a part of LG’s initiative towards achieving a “Zero Labor Home” and is designed to enhance the daily lives of its users by acting as a home manager and companion.

The smart home AI agent is equipped with a ‘two-legged’ wheel design that enables it to move independently throughout the home. It can verbally interact with individuals and express emotions through movement, thanks to its articulated leg joints. The agent’s multi-modal AI technology integrates voice and image recognition with natural language processing, allowing it to understand context and intentions and to communicate effectively with users.

Serving as a mobile smart home hub, the AI agent can connect to and control various smart appliances and IoT devices in the household. It incorporates the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Platform, courtesy of LG’s partnership with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. This platform endows the device with robust on-device AI capabilities, such as recognizing faces and users.

The built-in camera, speaker, and sensors enable the AI agent to collect environmental data such as temperature, humidity, and air quality. LG’s AI technologies analyze this data, learn from it, and combine it with external information to enhance functionality. The agent can monitor pets, act as a security guard by sending alerts for unusual activities, and provide remote pet care capabilities.

The versatility of LG’s smart home AI agent is underlined by features like autonomous home patrols, notifications for open windows or lights that are left on, and the ability to conserve energy by turning off unused devices. Upon the user’s arrival at home, the AI agent greets them, recognizes their emotional state, and can play music or content based on their mood. It further assists with transportation details, weather updates, personal schedules, and medication reminders.

Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company, emphasizes that the smart home AI agent is designed to relieve customers from household chores by merging advanced autonomous mobility, AI technologies, and communication capabilities.
