In August 2018, LG Electronics opened Toronto AI Lab in Toronto, Canada.

LG Electronics said on April 22 that it has launched a training and certification program to foster artificial intelligence (AI) specialists with Carnegie Mellon University in the United States and the University of Toronto in Canada.

LG Electronics recently selected 12 in-house AI developers for the training program through technical interviews. The interviews were conducted by the professors of each university to examine the expertise of the training candidates.

The selected candidates will receive individual mentoring from the advisors of each school for the next 16 weeks and conduct individual projects in the areas of voice intelligence, visual intelligence, and control intelligence.

The results of the project will be reviewed by the certification committee which includes the advisors. LG Electronics will select AI specialists based on the results. The AI specialists will develop core solutions for problems related to AI projects and become a mentor of researchers in the AI field.

In 2002, Carnegie Mellon University opened the world's first master's and doctoral course in machine learning, and the University of Toronto is known as a global leader in AI development.
