LG Develops Own Artificial Intelligence Chip

As part of its strategy to accelerate the development of AI devices for the home, LG has developed its own artificial intelligence chip (AI 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.

The AI Chip incorporates visual intelligence to better recognise and distinguish space,
location, objects and users while voice intelligence accurately recognises voice and
noise characteristics while product intelligence enhances the capabilities of the device
by detecting physical and chemical changes in the environment. The chip also makes it
possible to implement customised AI services by processing and learning from video
and audio data in order to enhance recognition of the user’s emotions and behaviors and the situational context.

Products utilising the LG AI Chip take advantage of the On-Device AI to operate even
without a network connection. What’s more, LG’s AI Chip employs a powerful security
engine to better protect personal data from external hacking. Processing that does not
require high security is designed to run in a general zone and jobs that require higher
security run in a separate hardware-implemented security zone.

LG’s AI Chip is designed to enhance the recognition performance in the products it
powers such as an advanced image recognition engine for simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM). For example, its powerful image processing function corrects for
distortion caused by wide angle lenses and generates brighter and clearer images in dark environments. LG Electronics plans to include the new AI Chip in future robot vacuum cleaners, washing machines, refrigerator and even air conditioners.

In addition, LG will expand the reach of its artificial intelligence solutions through collaborations with outside companies, universities and research laboratories.

“Our AI C​hip is designed to provide optimised artificial intelligence solutions for future
LG products,” said I.P. Park, president and Chief Technology Officer of LG Electronics.

“This will further enhance the three key pillars of our artificial intelligence strategy – evolve, connect and open – and provide customers with an improved experience for a better life.”
