CES 24 > LG Smart Home AI: and the robots are moving into our homes

Before being armed to the teeth to one day hunt us down in order to reduce us to slavery, robots will gently infiltrate our homes with cute faces and very useful functionalities.

The annual electronics mass - CES - will be held from January 9 to 13, 2024 in Las Vegas and the Korean manufacturer LG will take the opportunity to illustrate its commitment to achieving its “Zero Labor Home” vision with a little robot called Smart Home AI.

Robot Smart Home AI, a true concentrate of technologies

A concentrate of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), Smart Home AI has two legs with articulated wheels to move autonomously around the house. Ideal for carrying out a variety of surveillance tasks, such as keeping an eye on a pet, making rounds around the house when it is unoccupied, or turning off electrical appliances left on accidentally. Naturally, everything Smart Home AI sees can be viewed remotely, and alerts are sent to your smartphone if it detects any oddities. Moreover, if the LG robot can turn off compatible devices, it is because it also serves as a “mobile” control center for the connected home to control the home’s intelligent household appliances.

Smart Home AI robot can talk and show emotions

Finally, Smart Home AI is also an intelligent companion capable of verbally conversing with its users and expressing their “emotions”. Thanks to AI algorithms, it learns, understands and participates in complex conversations. It also provides information such as the weather and welcomes you by selecting music corresponding to your mood, which it can again detect.
