LG SET TO DEFINE FUTURE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AT NEW NORTH AMERICAN AI RESEARCH LABS
Silicon Valley and Toronto Labs to Drive Evolution of Advanced AI Technologies Across Multiple Touchpoints
Global innovator LG Electronics is poised to define the future of artificial intelligence for consumers and businesses in the years ahead with the establishment of a major new AI research presence in North America.
The new LG Electronics AI Research Lab in Canada is an extension of the expanded LG Silicon Valley AI Lab in Santa Clara, Calif. Supporting LG’s vision of AI as a key future growth engine, the North American labs further enhance LG’s global research capabilities, which include AI labs in South Korea, India and Russia.
LG is entering into a new research partnership with the University of Toronto, which is recognized worldwide for its AI and machine learning expertise, particularly in the area of deep learning. Under its five-year, multi-million-dollar research partnership with the University of Toronto, LG will build on its Open Platform-Open Partnership-Open Connectivity strategy to expand the AI ecosystem.
The new lab will capitalize on the expertise of researchers at the University of Toronto who will now have the opportunity to work collaboratively with LG’s growing U.S. and Canadian AI R&D teams. Complementing this work, LG intends to collaborate with and invest in North American start-ups.
