The 2018 Xiaomi flagship smartphones to have AI features

4 December 2017, 04:20:11

The 2018 Xiaomi flagship smartphones to have AI featuresAt the Artificial Intelligence Forum this morning as a part of the World Internet Conference held in Wuzhen, Xiaomi's founder and CEO delivered a speech entitled "Opportunities for Xiaomi in the AI ​​Age" and disclosed that the next generation of Xiaomi flagship smartphones in 2018 will arrive with AI features on board. For starters, these will be mainly related to the cameras' capabilities and will be gradually expanded. In this regard, Lei Jun said the next generation of Xiaomi flagship phones is quite worth the wait. In July this year, Xiaomi launched its Mi AI speakers and at the forum, Lei Jun said that voice commands over the speaker exceeded 3 million per day, meaning it has become a smart home control centre. Just last week, Xiaomi released the IoT Developer Program (Works with mijia). During the conference, Lei Jun also stressed: "AI strategy is the company's most important strategy now." In 2017, Xiaomi handset shipments returned to the top five in the world from the second quarter. Over 85 million IoT devices were connected to the Internet, making it the world's largest smart hardware IoT platform and more than 300 million MIUI users worldwide. According to Lei Jun, this has provided the most advantageous foundation for artificial intelligence provided by Xiaomi: "Xiaomi has users, equipment and data. This is the unique advantage of Xiaomi in making artificial intelligence." Lei Jun believes that MI has its own unique advantages of artificial intelligence, mainly reflected in excellent product capabilities, a wide range of access to big data, as well as the full ecological chain and loT connectivity. He stressed that at present the most intelligent application of artificial intelligence technology is in the smart speakers, followed by the camera and photo albums in smartphones, in addition to automatic driving and medical diagnosis. It will gradually cover all aspects of life. "All the world's Internet giants are AI companies and every large-scale Internet company is doing AI because if you do not do it, you will get out of control and you will be eliminated.", said Lei Jun.Source
