GE Appliances has signed a multi-year partnership deal with Google Cloud to build the next generation of smart home technologies.

The partners will combine their expertise – GE Appliances in hardware and Google Cloud in data, artificial intelligence, analytics, and machine learning – to deliver new smart home technologies and improved experiences.

Viren Shah, CDO of GE Appliances, said:

“As the fastest-growing appliance manufacturing company in the United States and with more than a century of industry experience, we are committed to continuing our evolution and fulfilling our promise to deliver the best appliances to our owners and customers.

Bringing together Google and GE Appliances to co-innovate and build advanced technologies is a key driver propelling this evolution forward.”

GE Appliances notes that it will benefit from Google Cloud’s seamless integration with other Google platforms and technologies such as Android and Google Assistant while also being able to tap into powerful capabilities like Vision AI.

Google’s cloud platform will also enable GE Appliances to enhance its AI-enabled intelligent product platform that can help manage fleets of appliances and decrease unplanned downtime.

Dominik Wee, Managing Director of Manufacturing and Industrial at Google Cloud, commented:

“GE Appliances is an award-winning, smart home innovator that gives consumers the forward-thinking features and capabilities they want and expect.

Marrying GEA’s expertise in smart home appliances with Google Cloud’s data analytics and AI/ML will deliver industry-leading, innovative appliances and digital experiences that will delight consumers for years to come.”

GE Appliances says that it intends to integrate the capabilities offered by Google Cloud across its entire appliance development process, from concept to production.
