When it comes to smart homes, we will all imagine a bright future smart home: open the door, the lights are automatically lit, the air conditioner is adjusted to a comfortable temperature, and the TV plays your favorite channel. However, the reality is that manufacturers have moved the buttons of the remote control to the mobile APP, and the smart home is still not smart enough. Recently, the smart home market seems to be a bit lonely, and vendors have become extremely low-key. Compared with the hot topic of smart home, the smart home seems to have hit the rocks. Although it is not sinking, the downturn in product sales has made major manufacturers and entrepreneurs feel extremely embarrassed.
Comparing the smart home products on the market today, almost all smart home products are not supported by big data and intelligent learning systems. The difference between smart home and traditional home is nothing more than the difference between smart home appliances and traditional home appliances. It is nothing more than a remote control function controlled by a mobile phone. Obviously, whether it is for an entrepreneurial smart home enterprise or a traditional enterprise of a smart home, there is a common problem of defining a misplaced intelligence.
Smart home needs people as the core
Different industries and different groups of people face different needs for smart living. At present, most smart home products are packaged in a simple and rude overall application, and then downloaded according to the instructions to download the app to control, this is not the smart life we â€‹â€‹imagine. The ideal smart family should be to study various typical scenarios, clarify the requirements, and give systematic solutions. The core resources of the smart home era must be the scene. Perhaps in the future we can say that the patents that master the five hundred scene solutions go further than the development of five hundred products.
Artificial intelligence slutty housekeeper
In the growing field of smart homes, we have now gone through two stages, one is networked control, such as a wide range of smart water bottles, smart sockets and so on. The second is home appliance networking, terminal access sensors, monitoring indoor environment, and manipulation through the APP. The third stage focuses on human-computer interaction. The communication between people and home appliances is like human-to-human communication, that is, artificial intelligence. Imagine a scene: When you get home from work, say "I am back" to the door, then the door opens automatically, the curtains are automatically opened, and the air conditioner is automatically adjusted. When you go out, say "I am going out" to the door, the door is automatically closed, and all indoor appliances are automatically turned off.
The current smart home is hard to do this, so what is missing? Yes, artificial intelligence, it is like a personal housekeeper in your family, familiar with all the preferences and habits of the owner, will always open the appropriate appliances in the corresponding scene. Of course, there are still many problems that need to be solved in current artificial intelligence, but this does not hinder the development of artificial intelligence in the smart home ecosystem.
Smart home ecosystem dynamics
Microsoft and Haier reached a strategic cooperation around the application of artificial intelligence in the field of smart home. The artificial intelligence robot Microsoft Xiaobing will also be the first to enter the Haier U+ smart home system. From the perspective of cooperation content, at the product level, Microsoft Xiao Bing will first enter the U+ Smart Life App. Microsoft and Haier will focus on artificial intelligence to explore new forms of smart home. At the research and development level, cooperation is more extensive, involving the core core technologies of smart homes such as big data, environment awareness, and natural language recognition. These technologies are the key to making smart homes move from simple command control to humanization and intelligence. They are also the technical threshold for domestic enterprises to cross.
Broadcom and Baidu reached a strategic cooperation, Broadlink developed a new product: MAX. Using Baidu voice technology solution, it has many functions such as speech recognition, semantic analysis, speech synthesis, many languages, Baidu music, Baidu search and so on. Multi-array microphone for long-distance speech recognition and control.
At present, the product is still in the demo stage. We can only know some of its functions, support Wi-Fi, BLE, Zigbee, RF equipment access, and can access gas, infrared, smoke, door magnet, natural gas, flooding, etc. Sensors, as well as wearable, healthy body fat, blood pressure glucose meters, etc., let the device get rid of the mobile app, and directly upload data through the interoperability between MAX and the cloud.
What is artificial intelligence?
Artificial intelligence is a simulation of the information process of human consciousness and thinking. Artificial intelligence is not human intelligence, but it can be like human thinking, and it may exceed human intelligence. Research in this area includes robotics, speech recognition, image recognition, natural language processing, and expert systems.
