Capitalizing on AI to minimize on energy in minimalist living

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

Initially, the idea of Artificial Intelligence was only associated with robots. People saw AI in terms of robots that had come to “replace humans” and “take up their jobs.” However, contrary to what many people believed, AI came to simplify lives and has actually created many more jobs.

Major cities around the world are moving towards what is known as “smart cities.” This is more evident in developed nations where almost every city has evolved through technology. Developing countries are still trying to adopt the “smart city” model.

Smart cities are defined by how people use and conserve energy. This is why there is a push for people, especially in Africa to adapt to the use of solar panels, electric cars and cut down on any form of material/process that might lead to the depletion of the ozone layer or contribute to climate change.

Industries have realized that energy efficiency and clean power are good for business and for the lives of people around the world. Car manufacturers are shifting their focus into electric cars as more consumers opt for batteries over gasoline. LG Electronics, in 2019, announced its commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. This means they coming up with innovative products that will enhance connectivity while remaining friendly to the environment.

People around the world are increasingly living more conscious lifestyles and they are paying more attention to energy usage and waste management. Sustainable living is defined as a lifestyle that “aims to reduce one’s environmental impact, in ways that are sustainable both for the Earth and for the person.” This includes and not limited to having tools/gadgets/products that promote the sustainability of both the earth and the person.

LG Electronics has utilized AI in almost all its products from TVs to washing machines, to vacuum cleaners. The leading electronic giant has one of the best AI-powered Proactive Customer Care for its leading appliances that alert users to energy usage and water consumption and provides thoughtful advice for improving efficiency and saving money.

“Efficiency is at the heart of LG’s Centum System with an advanced Inverter Linear Compressor that significantly boosts reliability and durability,” said LG Electronics.

For instance, LG’s new and unique indoor gardening appliance takes sustainability to another level by enabling customers to grow their own herbs and greens even without a backyard. Technology provides lighting, temperature and water control while convenient seed packages and a growth-monitoring app help users cultivate greens inside their homes.

As you purpose to lead a minimalist life, purpose to have gadgets that will not only conserve energy but lead you in directing and providing alternatives on how to make your life easier.
