Amid accelerating technological developments, Artificial Intelligence (AI) appears as more than just a modern concept or a new technology. It is a revolution that never stops amazing us. AI is increasingly used in various sectors, from finance and business to healthcare, transport, criminal justice, and national security. We have recently seen the world’s first AI news anchor, who read the news simulating the voice, facial movements, and gestures of real-life broadcasters.
So, what is AI?
Artificial Intelligence seeks to understand the nature of human intelligence through computer programs. It simulates intelligent human behavior and works in sync with machine learning and data analytics. Data may come in the form of digital information, satellite pictures, visual or text information, or unorganized information. AI systems are able to learn and adapt when making decisions.
The importance of AI lies in the tremendous opportunities it provides for economic development. According to a study by UK’s PwC, AI technologies will increase the global GDP by 14% by 2030.
Perhaps healthcare is the sector where the achievements of AI are manifested most. Medical diagnosis with AI technology is faster and more accurate than diagnosis made by humans. AI tools are useful because they predict future challenges and suggest proactive medical interventions to prevent the progression of diseases. AI is also used in the education sector to develop learning skills, performances, examination systems, and educational solutions.
LG, a leader in the era of Artificial Intelligence
LG, a global IT and electronics leader, soon realized the need to provide AI solutions for its products and enhance the three key pillars of its artificial intelligence strategy – evolve, connect and open – and provide customers with an improved experience for a better life. The company, therefore, developed its own artificial intelligence chip with proprietary LG Neural Engine to better mimic the neural network of the human brain to greatly improve the processing of deep learning algorithms in its smart home appliances, such as refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, and air conditioners. Lg’s chip employs a powerful security engine to better protect personal data.
