LG will get Google Assistant with the introduction of ThinQ® artificial intelligence (AI) and an advanced image processor in its newest OLED and SUPER UHD TVs. ThinQ allows the implementation of hundreds of voice requests utilizing the company’s own open smart platform as well as third-party AI services via LG’s DeepThinQ, a deep learning technology, plus Natural Language Processing.
Users can search for information, images or videos featuring specific content by making a verbal request through the TV’s remote control such as “show me all the movies this actor has starred in” or “show me yoga videos”.
ThinQ AI supports Electronic Program Guide (EPG) to deliver information to instruct the TV to “search for the soundtrack of this movie” or “turn off the TV when this program is over” without repeating the name of the program or entering a specific time. LG TV users will be able to control smart home devices.
LG introduces new α (Alpha) 9 intelligent processor which provides images with rich colors, sharpness and depth for more realism. The new Alpha 9 processor will rely on four-step process for noise reduction and support 120fps high frame rate (HFR) content.
