At CES 2018, LG’s gearing up to announce their new OLED TVs line up with Google’s Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa built in alongside LG’s own digital assistant.

LG is committed to Artificial Intelligence (AI) for all their electronics, including televisions, refrigerators, and other home appliances. LG is said to be branding them under the name ‘ThinQ’ for 2018, which is iteration to its ‘DeepThinQ’ deep learning technology announced back at the CES 2017. The company already has few of its appliances under SmartThinQ branding, which are powered by Google’s AI Assistant.

The 2018’s LG TVs will incorporate a new line of processors, ranging from M16+ processors to LG’s new ‘Alpha 9’ processors, which will boost the performance up to 35 per cent. This results in a smoother motion handling, object-based contrast and a technology called True Color Accuracy Pro (replacement to LG’s previous True Color Accuracy technology).

LG is trying to integrate both Google’s Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa voice control for their WebOS, which already has a built-in digital assistant. With this integration, LG aims to help the consumers have a smoother experience by using their voice on the smart remote provided by the company.
