Tech This Week: Cashalo Introduces Cash Academy, LG Unveils AI Technology

Did you know that latest Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Financial Inclusion Survey indicates that 77% of the country's adult population remains unbanked? According to a Standard and Poor (S&P) report, only 25% of Filipinos are financially literate. And as of last year, only 12% of Filipino adults borrowed from a formal financial institution.

Cashalo Introduces Cash Academy

Cashalo, with its mission to accelerate financial inclusion and support the BSP's effort to improve financial literacy in the Philippines, recently launched Cash Academy, a nationwide financial literacy program targeted for every Juan,with the aim to develop a generation that is more financially knowledgeable, responsible and empowered. This is in line with the company's mission to provide every Juan with the skills and services needed to be independent and more capable to improve their financial health and unlock economic potential.

The program comprises eight free learning modules and training resources aimed at delivering a holistic and practical overview of sound financial management to help Filipinos become "Pera Experts" - financially aware and responsible. It also offers training on the responsible and efficient use of financing for micro-entrepreneurs to start and grow their small businesses.

Cashalo Introduces Cash Academy

In partnership with ASSIST Asia, Google, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Go Negosyo, Cashalo has already delivered online and offline financial literacy and business skills training through the beta phase of the Cash Academy initiative to cover 10,000 Filipinos to date.

A dedicated microsite host these learning modules in the form of short videos, which can also be accessed via YouTube. After watching these, visitors will be invited to take a localized version of the World Bank 7-point financial literacy quiz that gauges their basic financial understanding and know-how. Those who pass the quiz will be given a digital certificate to signify  they are financially literate.

I personally believe in the importance of financial literacy. Kudos to Cashalo for this great initiative.


LG Celebrates History with Tomorrow's AI Technology

History was made yet again as the Intramuros Administration (IA), the government agency tasked for the orderly restoration, management, development, and promotion of Intramuros as a national heritage, celebrated its 40th Anniversary in the recently opened Museo de Intramuros.

LG Unveils AI Technology

To celebrate the momentous occasion together with IA, LG Philippines made their presence felt as they simultaneously unveiled their newest line of state of the art OLED TVs, putting side by side our rich and colorful history together with tomorrow’s technology. 

LG PH Managing Director Inkwun Heo led the festivities as he formally handed over six (6) units of the LG TVs to the museum. Mr. Heo went on to say 
“This 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the Philippines and the Republic of Korea. Throughout the seven (7) decades of friendship between the 2 nations, we’ve been championing the importance of culture. We at LG Philippines remain committed in doing our part to preserve and showcase Philippine history. We hope that through the integration of our industry leading OLED TV technology with riveting historically significant content, we are able to communicate to audiences, both old and new, the importance of Intramuros and Philippine history as a whole”.
Present during the event was Atty. Guiller Asido, Administrator of the Intramuros Administration, who was ecstatic about the educational possibilities of the TV donations. Referring to the event’s official hashtag #TheTVThatUnderstandsYou, he quips “I would like to rephrase our hashtag, this is not just the TV that understands you - it is the TV that understands the history and culture of the Filipino people.”

Also unveiled during the program was another gift of LG to IA: a special AVP made by TBA Studios, the creative geniuses behind local hit movies Heneral Luna and GOYO. The video which featured Museo De Intramuros was directed by JP Habac with cinematography by Pong Ignacio. Habac and Ignacio were awe-struck with how vivid the color rendition of the LG OLED TVs was. “Every bit of detail is seen the way it’s supposed to be seen. The dynamic range is really something to behold”, says Habac. LG commissioned the video featuring the Department of Tourism Sec. Bernadette Romulo-Puyat and museum curator Dino Santos to showcase the enchanting beauty of Intramuros through its crystal-clear OLED displays.

LG’s newest line of TVs is powered by never before seen cutting-edge technology. With Deep Learning technology now embedded in their new a9 Gen2 & a7 Gen2 processors) – the TV, through intuitive recognition, can understand how to optimize and enhance the picture and sound for any content. The AI feeds on data and adapts accordingly, giving you the most optimal viewing experience possible. With the Deep Learning technology, the LG TV can understand how to display best picture quality from any source and resolution.

LG’s AI doesn’t just stop at picture quality. You can also talk to your TV. When you press the microphone button on your remote, LG’s ThinQ AI listens to your commands and executes them, even those based on an earlier “conversation”. From simple TV controls, weather questions, or you can create follow-up questions based on your initial command and the ThinQ AI will still carry-on the conversation. James Deakin, LG’s Brand Ambassador, gamely demonstrated the AI capabilities of the TV onstage, as he issued commands and questions one after the other. “This is as smart as smart TVs can get. LG is ahead of the game in pushing the boundaries of innovation and technology”.

If that wasn’t enough, LG’s flagship OLED TVs also have LG’s award-winning OLED Panel Technology that works seamlessly with Deep Learning Technology. Sound quality is boosted by an intelligent algorithm that can up-mix two-channel audio to deliver convincing virtual 5.1 surround sound. Deep learning significantly improves output by analyzing source content to produce enhanced sound effects in movies, deeper bass in music and clearer voices in sporting events. Users can adjust the sound to suit viewing conditions or let the TV set the best sound levels based on the environment.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) is made possible with the help of Dolby Atmos for incredibly realistic sound as the TV intelligently fine-tunes content compatible with Dolby Vision. The TV supports HDMI 2.1, allowing viewers the opportunity to enjoy 4K content at a blazing fast 60 frames per second. The TV also supports automatic low latency mode (ALLM), variable refresh rate (VRR), and enhanced audio return channel (eARC).
