, the only work thought to have been sold by Vincent Van Gogh during his lifetime.

Known for its intensity in color and the anxious emotional state reflected in the work, the painting attracted the attention of many when it was first unveiled in Belgium in 1890 and immediately purchased by artist Anna Boch for a price equal to about USD 2,000 today. Considered one of the most valuable paintings among 19th and 20th century European works, the painting now calls Moscow’s Pushkin Museum home.

With financial support from LG SIGNATURE, the painting will undergo a thorough examination for the first time in its 130-year history. With the help of current scientific methods, the conservators and experts at Pushkin Museum will examine the painting using advanced X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and electron microscopy techniques involving energy dispersion analysis. Through this process, the researchers hope to find answers to some long-held questions about the painting such as the paints used, how they were mixed, how the painting has changed due to age and which parts were changed by Van Gogh himself.

Since the partnership was initiated, LG and Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts have worked together on many collaborative projects such as Pushkin Museum x LG SIGNATURE Wednesdays, a series of discussions with art historians, psychologists, collectors and philosophers to discuss topics related to the human ability to see and contemplate.

Attracting over 500,000 online participants at its opening, program presenters helped broaden the public’s appreciation of art, aided by LG SIGNATURE OLED 8K TV as the backdrop, boasting exceptional quality and impressive brightness, demonstrating the importance of visual perception.

 Sponsoring the restoration project was not only based on LG SIGNATURE’s cultural mission to study and conserve the masterpiece but the belief that preservation of the world’s heritage could lead to inspirations in technology. Red Vineyard at Arles has never left its exhibition space since its arrival at Pushkin Museum in 1951 so the opportunity to examine and record this work in detail for posterity was invaluable not only for Pushkin Museum, but for art lovers the world over.

      Companies Aim to Improve the In-Vehicle Experience via Seamless Integration of
      Virtual Assistant into LG’s Infotainment Solutions

      SEOUL, July 28, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has signed a memorandum of understanding with SoundHound AI, Inc. (SoundHound), a global player in voice artificial intelligence (AI), to jointly develop advanced voice AI technology for the next-generation of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
      The partnership will leverage LG’s innovative IVI systems and SoundHound’s advanced voice AI platform, which enables conversational voice control, to bring an up-to-dated convenience to the driver and passenger experience.
      As an intelligence driven consumer electronics and IT business, LG has been trying to inspire the auto industry with new form-factors. Simultaneously, LG always pursues an innovative partner for the future of mobility.
      SoundHound’s advanced voice AI platform is built on Speech-to-Meaning® and Deep Meaning Understanding® technologies. These technologies enabled the evolution of voice experience from a legacy command-and-control interface to a more intuitive conversational functionalities for drivers and passengers.
      This new collaboration will also allow users to take advantage of SoundHound’s voice commerce partnerships – meaning drivers and passengers will be able to pay for gas, parking or even order food directly from their vehicles, simply by using the microphone and infotainment display. Such voice-enabled commerce could help OEMs build new revenue streams via their connected vehicles.
      Voice recognition is beginning to see much wider adoption in the auto segment, after initially being available only as an optional extra in select luxury vehicle models. As safety and ease-of-use being enhanced, voice AI technology will make it possible for carmakers to provide a range of services that will allow drivers to perform a variety of tasks hands-free and without taking their eyes off the road. Its wider implementation will also improve any commute or journey for those occupying the passenger seats as well.
      With the virtual assistant market expected to grow considerably over the next decade, more automakers are recognizing the need to bring voice recognition features to their vehicle programs. In order to meet the anticipated rise in demand and move the technology forward, LG has partnered with the SoundHound. The two companies aim to bring innovative, new voice functionalities and capabilities to LG’s next-gen IVI systems to change the in-vehicle experience for the better life.
      “We’re excited to collaborate with SoundHound and look forward to providing new in-vehicle experiences through seamlessly integrating its voice AI platform with our latest IVI system architecture,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company. “This partnership will allow us to better meet the needs of our auto industry customers and create innovative solutions that will help driving the future of mobility.”
      “Our agreement with LG will allow auto manufacturers of all sizes to deliver the kind of voice-enabled infotainment experience that users have come to expect in every part of their lives,” said Keyvan Mohajer, president and CEO of SoundHound. “We’re entering an era where people are beginning to expect to talk to devices in the way they talk to each other, and that those interactions will be helpful and proactive. This experience is enabled by the most advanced voice AI technology.”
      Based in Santa Clara, California, SoundHound is a leading innovator in AI-based voice recognition and natural language processing solutions, operating across various industries including audio, telecommunications, financial services and automotive.

      this one blows my mind and I dont get how no one complains about this every day
      the built in player by LG does NOT play loseless audio an can NOT pass it even via eArc !!!
      the TV HW is fully capable of doing this. as an example, if you plug in an nvidia shield where the shield is the player, connect the shield to the TV via HDMI and another HDMI to the eArc straight to supporting a supporting eArc component there are no issues... its the LG Built in player that does not support it !!! 
      I bought my TV with eArc exactly to be able to use the built in player (connect to a NAS with my media) and enjoy Atmos. 
      LG, please fix this historical fiasco. its unacceptable!
      thanks for reading...

      if anyone maybe knows a idea to resolve this, please share, thanx..
      in Turkey.. oled55c1 media player can not play english audio track in the m2ts movie file from usb.. it will sound funny but, it seems like WebOs or its built-in Media Player is against english.. : (( it plays the m2TS audio track within the file with russian, spanish or italian but wierdly not english.. ¿¿?? when you go to audio tracks list setting there are no language titles.. the list only shows "song languages" or something like that.. and under that menu there are listings as 1, 2, 3..   it should list language audio tracks formally as it should be..            1: English   2: Russian   3: Spanish    or whatever listed in the file..   this is not only one-file problem.. As far as I know this issue exists in every 2021 and 2022 LG oled smartTVs WEBOS models and built-in media players for every m2TS file movies... 
      if anyone would ask; for these movie files on PC windows OS there's no problem at all.. english audio track is there.. and plus; Samsung plays this file with english audio track without any problems.. : ((((
      what about installing mpc-hc on WebOs? would that resolve this issue ? possible someday ?
      hope this issue will be resolved with updates soon..
