Banner for the AIX Exchange's digital report titled 'The Future of AI and Human Experience'

SEOUL, Jan. 13, 2021 — At CES® 2021, LG Electronics (LG) president and CTO Dr. I.P. Park and Element AI CEO Jean-François Gagné will unveil AIX Exchange: The Future of AI and Human Experience, a multifaceted digital report that includes in-depth interviews with leading experts in AI, consumer advocacy, design and business. AIX Exchange builds on the Levels of Artificial Intelligence Experience (AIX) Framework which launched at CES in 2020 and proposes a shared definition for advancements in consumer AI while maintaining a focus on human-centric design.

The multimedia report explores AIX design across six core themes titled Public Perception, Ethics, Transparency, User Experience, Context and Relationships, each with multiple sub themes that interlink, such as the importance of user interface for building transparency and how a clear purpose for AI products can support adoption by end-users. To ensure it appeals to all stakeholders, there is also an Understanding AI section that helps public audiences follow along with some of the technical aspects of the discussion.

“We felt like there were many different discussions happening from different stakeholders across different platforms and we wanted to create an accessible way for the industry to explore these important topics in one place,” explains LG’s Dr. Park. “This effort isn’t about answering questions but to ask them in the frame of the end-user. We hope that by raising the issues and opportunities presented by AI, we can better understand what is at stake and help shape the future through collaboration.”

The report comes at an important time for a technology that is increasingly finding itself in our homes, our cars and our pockets. McKinsey estimates AI techniques have the potential to create between USD 3.5 trillion and USD 5.8 trillion1 in value annually while PwC estimates that 30 percent of jobs are at potential risk of automation by mid-2030s.2

“AIX Exchange was created to bring together a wide range of expert perspectives on the future of AI and its application for human spaces, such as in the home, the car, at work and in public,” says Gagné. “Many in the industry see the overwhelming potential of the technology but also the perils and the need to come together to help shape and safeguard our future.”

Interviews were conducted and captured over Zoom between September and November, 2020 and included talks with:

  • Yoshua Bengio, Scientific Director of Mila and recent Turing Award winner
  • Rodney Brooks, robotics entrepreneur who founded iRobot Corp., inventor of the Roomba robot vacuum
  • Christina J. Colclough, global policymaker focused on workers’ rights and the impact of technology
  • David Foster, Head of Lyft Transit, Bikes and Scooters
  • Yuko Harayama, who helped develop Japan’s Society 5.0 roadmap as Executive Member of Japan’s Council for Science, Technology and Innovation
  • Charles Lee Isbell Jr., Dean of Computing at Georgia Tech
  • Helena Leurent, Director General of global consumer rights group, Consumers International
  • Bo Peng, Portfolio Director at renowned design agency IDEO
  • Jeff Poggi, Co-CEO of the McIntosh Group
  • Sri Shivananda, SVP and CTO at PayPal
  • Max Welling, VP Technologies at Qualcomm Netherlands and research chair in Machine Learning, University of Amsterdam
  • Alex Zafiroglu, Deputy Director at the 3A Institute (3Ai, Australian National University)

Interviews can be watched or listened to through the AIX Exchange YouTube channel or through the report itself, which also includes references to recent developments in the industry, sharable consumer-friendly content such as an infographic on the History of AI and even an AI-generated conversational research report that uses natural language processing and deep learning to observe the different ways stakeholder groups are talking about AI.

      Hi All,
       
      i’ve got an OLED 55C1 with webOS 6.0 and a service remote in South America. 
       
      I’ve been able to find working area codes for almost all regions using the service remote based on previous posts and tables. 
       
      Of most use to me were:
      Brazil: 26895 (local DTV transmission settings) /22800 (BR/US DTV transmission settings)
      US: 1843 / 1793 / 22287
      UK/EU/Turkey: 3122
      AU Australia: 767
      JP Japan: 23439
      I’ve also found working codes for China (CN), Taiwan (TW), Hog Kong (HK), Philippines (PH), Australia, NZ & South Asia incl. India (AJ), certain African and Middle Eastern countries (JA or JA ME IL regions: note Israel is not an option even though IL appears in the code) , Canada (CA), Mexico (MX), Panama and Central America (PA), Ecuador (EC), Colombia (CO), Peru (PE), Chile (CL), and Argentina (AR).
      Notably absent were working codes for;
      Israel (IL)
      Korea (KR)
      Russia and CIS countries (RU CIS)
      Eastern Europe (ETC?)
      Does anyone know the working area option service codes for these countries?
      I am mostly interested in working IL and KR codes.
       
      thank you so much!

      Organizational Moves to Consolidate Company’s Capabilities to Create
      Differentiated Customer Value, Accelerate Future Growth Engines

      SEOUL, Nov. 24, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced organizational changes designed to bolster its preparedness for the future. The changes are being implemented primarily to accelerate the company’s future growth engines and enhance its ability to create differentiated customer value and experiences.
      A key piece of LG’s forward-looking strategy is the establishment of the Corporate Customer Experience (CX) Center, which will report directly to LG’s headquarters. The CX Center will be led by executive vice president, Lee Chul-bae, who previously served as head of the Corporate Design Management Center. The main role of the CX Center will be to create a seamless and expanded customer experience. It will also develop strategies and roadmaps to foster greater innovation at every stage of the customer experience journey from product planning and customer service to future business models.
      The CX Center will also encompass the CX Strategy Division, which will be charged with the discovery and promotion of company-wide goals and core tasks, and the LSR Customer Research Center, formerly the Life Soft Research (LSR) Lab.
      LG’s Platform Business Center will play a new role in integrating and organizing LG ThinQ services, responsibilities that were previously distributed across corporate and business headquarters. Established in July 2021, the Platform Business Center has been leading the creation of LG’s fandom based on data. Moving forward, the Center will be headed by LG’s vice president, Jung Ki-hyun, who joined the company in September this year. Jung has had a distinguished career with roles at eBay Korea and Google as well as acting as the CEO of Meta Korea.
      In 2023 and beyond, LG will continue to focus on improving supply chain management (SCM) and augmenting its already-strong Digital Transformation (DX) capabilities. To this end, the company’s Procurement and SCM Management Center has been renamed the Global Operation Center, with the functions and roles of the Production Planning Division transferred from the Production Engineering Research Institute. The Global Operation Center will create synergies across the company’s operations – such as production, purchasing and SCM – through promoting improvements based on DX technologies.
      Aiming to spur further growth through improved organizational performance, LG will strengthen its agile and responsive decision-making system across all four business units.
      Lyu Jae-cheol, head of the Home Appliance & Air Solution (H&A) Company, has been promoted to president in recognition of his success in improving H&A’s performance and product portfolio. An expert in his field, Lyu has worked in various areas of LG’s home appliance business since 1989, including in the R&D and production departments.
      Eun Seok-hyun, head of the Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, was promoted to vice president. Under his leadership, LG’s vehicle component solutions business has achieved operational stability with an improved profit and loss structure, and has constructed a strong business portfolio encompassing several key future mobility technologies.
      Another of the newly-announced changes, the H&A Company’s “Living Appliance Business’ and “Kitchen Appliance Business” will become the “Living Solution Business” and “Kitchen Solution Business,” respectively. The renaming aligns with LG’s renewed focus on customer experience innovation and points to the greater emphasis the company is placing on the expansion of content and services.
      The Home Entertainment (HE) Company is set to increase its capacity to create customer value by establishing the Indonesia Research and Development Division under the HE R&D Lab Institute to enhance collaboration between overseas R&D and manufacturing bases.
      The VS Company aims to strengthen its capabilities in purchasing, producing and SCM by establishing an operation group that manages the integrated operation of the electric vehicle component business.
      The Business Solutions (BS) Company set up a new EV Charger Business Division directly under the company to accelerate the full-fledged development of EV charging solution business that was launched last year.
      All appointments are effective Dec. 1 with promotions going into effect on the first day of the new year.

      A major part of any film project is the reviewing, editing and manipulating of video and sound – tasks that require high-quality displays that can run multiple applications and data streams and provide the most accurate image reproduction. LG has applied its self-lit display technology to create the LG UltraFine OLED Pro series, a lineup of professional-grade monitors offering various features and capabilities needed for media and film production.

      To promote its first-class displays and show its support for the cinematic arts, LG is actively seeking opportunities to sponsor professional societies and innovative educational institutions dedicated to advancing the medium of film. Recently, the company established a partnership program with Griffith Film School, a well-known Australian institution that continues to supply the entertainment industry with talented and capable people. Through the new program, LG will furnish Griffith’s Brisbane campus with a number of LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors to support students as they learn their craft.

      Designed with film and media professionals in mind, LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors (models 32BP95E, 27BP95E, 32EP950 and 27EP950) boast premium 4K OLED displays that deliver natural, accurate colors with 99 percent (typical) coverage of both the DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color space. This wide range of color gamut enables the monitor to sufficiently reproduce color areas of multiple standards and represent accurately the exact computed color values that film directors’ use. With 1,000,000:1 high contrast ratio, almost all colors and visuals that creators or editors intended can be presented precisely. Bringing the advantages of OLED’s self-lit pixels to the desktop, the monitors also provide superb HDR and SDR performance.

      Founded in 2004, Griffith Film School is one of the largest learning institutes of its kind in Australia. Notable Griffith alumni include Matthew Hanger, a multi-award-winning visual effects artist, and Peter Spierig, an award-winning feature film director. The school offers an array of specialized programs, including cinematography, post-production, visual effects, screen music, production design, documentary-making, computer animation and game design – creative endeavors that are perfectly matched to LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors.

      “Working with LG really makes sense for us as they understand the unique needs we have as filmmakers – and that’s something you can clearly see in the capabilities and feature sets of their monitors,” said Herman Van Eyken, head professor at Griffith Film School. “LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors are state-of-the-art monitors that provide the faithful image reproduction that our students need to realize their artistic vision.”
      As a result of the partnership, both students and faculty members at Griffith Film School will get to explore everything that LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors have to offer. LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors are available to use in the school’s Grading Suite while several units of the equally impressive LG UltraWide monitor (model 40WP95C) are installed in the Editing Suite.
