But there is already an AI in air-conditioning Toto

LG has jacked some AI under the bonnet of its ‘Whisen Dual Air Conditioner’ and says its cunning plan is to apply AI to its other household appliances.

The ‘Whisen Dual Air Conditioner’ ships with LG’s Deep Learning technology called ‘Deep ThinQ’ to its new air conditioners. This technology allows products to learn human behavior and environments surrounding products on their own.

Its major function is its Smart Care function that provides pleasant breeze to spaces where people usually stay. These new air conditioners will figure out air conditioning modes and appropriate timing to operate air purification and operate these functions on their own.

LG Electronics provided the air conditioners with about 500,000 images of indoors as a database. A camera that is installed within the air conditioner which records images for two weeks. By comparing these images with the database, the air conditioners can accurately detect spaces that are presently occupied with people.

By focusing its air conditioning function to areas that are necessary, they can save electricity up to 20.5% compared to dim air conditioners. hey also provide personalized breeze by automatically working out where you sit most of the time.

LG Electronics is planning to apply AI to variety of household appliances starting with its air conditioners.

President Song Dae-hyeon said that while LG had focused on selling household appliances individually in the past, now it was focused on connecting household appliances with each other.

“We are going to create an environment so that many products will be applied with Deep Learning technology by applying wireless internet to all our products that are going to be released this year.”
