LG reveals upcoming smartphone AI features
LG took a while before being ready to jump in the AI wagon, but now they are less than a month away from the introduction of the company's set of AI technologies for mobile phones. The press release that details these technologies focuses on two main areas: Vision AI and Voice AI, which features exclusive voice commands for Google Assistant.
The first of the two is described by LG as "next generation image recognition" and its algorithms have been developed with a partner. More than one hundred million images were analyzed during the process, and more than one thousand unique categories were created for more accurate shooting mode recommendations.
In addition to the above, LG Vision AI can also automatically scan QR codes, initiate an image search, or provide shopping options.
LG Voice AI works alongside Google Assistant and comes with 32 LG-exclusive commands, up from 23 back in 2017. The list of features that can be activated with voice commands includes taking various photos and shooting videos, opening the camera app with various modes active, searching images, or scanning QR codes (not automatically as with Vision AI, but by opening the camera specifically for this task).
Obviously, some will go "meh" and they might be right since these AI features described by LG do not seem that impressive. However, the real thing might be better than its description. To take a closer look at LG's AI-driven future, you might want to visit the company's MWC 2018 booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via, between February 26 and March 1.
