On August 6, a-share listed companies Oriental NET announcements: set up a wholly owned subsidiary of spirit technologies, implementation of service robotics business. Hermes iPhone 6 plus flip case
In fact, it is not surprising. Artificial intelligence as a high threshold of "air", "mass entrepreneurship, and innovation" by "winter capital" after the baptism, will undoubtedly improve the efficiency of capital.
Then, spirit of science and technology announced that "Baidu ominous" Gu Jiawei as co-founder, will be responsible for the company's products and research and development. Before the combined investment in Jibo Knightscope, signs, spirit means to cut into the artificial intelligence technology is very tough, non-play nature.
Leaving the Baidu, "Young Marshal" Gu Jiawei inserts spiritual technology
Gu Jiawei resume style 2010 after graduating from Qinghua University, joined Microsoft research, engage in human-computer interaction research, primary research areas include tangible entities interact and gesture control somatosensory embedded interaction. Institute of technical transformation of research results involving Microsoft products including the Kinect,Surface keyboard and Windows 10. In addition, he owns the hardware and software of the 22 United States patents, over more than 120 domestic patents, is United States Stanford ME310 international innovation courses, guest supervisors.
In 2014, the Gu Jiawei joining Baidu, "Baidu's ominous" one. As head of the human-computer interaction, whose main work is based on the depth of the study of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and natural user interface and novel ways to interact, explore, Baidu's artificial intelligence technology in the service of a new business environment and may. During this period, he led projects including Baidu smart glasses BaiduEye, Intelligent Assistant for the blind DuLight, intelligent real-time face-face App FaceYou and Baidu bike DuBike.
Gu Jiawei Baidu deep learning of Sciences (Institute of Deep Learning, IDL) established in 2013, by Robin Dean. Mainly for deep learning, massively parallel computing, robotics, automatic transmission, human-computer interaction, 3D vision, image recognition, face recognition, natural language understanding research, and through artificial intelligence techniques to improve all products the user experience, including search relevance, advertising targeted delivery, voice recognition, image search and other services.
With this as background, spirit technology ambitions are traceable. Hermes iPhone 6 Plus cover
It is understood that long before the spiritual technology was founded, Gu Jiawei and Oriental net force has had contact with. Which investment Jibo and Knightscope, is that he is very fond of robotics. But Gu Jiawei apparently has no intention of repeating things to do:
"At this stage of a hardware entity robot independent financing large venture, United States robots pundits Rodney has many practitioners worship by the robot trades, do the two companies over the past decade, iRobot, another Rethink now Robotics, two time points are stepping on the market makes good time. AI technique in recent years due to the rapid development of deep learning progress, but a lot of "popular" do robots use is not yet at the time, the market needs to nurture, certain groups or specific users in specific areas of the service had the opportunity to stir up the public's thirst for confidence-building, single product breakthroughs in the short term the possibility of explosions is small. This circuit must play for a change. "
Spiritual technology is in a different style. It is understood that in the planning of its products, in addition to the "robot" and industrial robots, will cover almost all the robot category, whether through investment, and research.
Clearly, the spirit of the present technology and not obsessed with "what is the ultimate form of artificial intelligence" that metaphysical propositions. In addition, Gu Jiawei, can really touch the user, rather than a purely-assisted intelligent terminals, and spirit the important conception of science and technology:
"I've been talking about all things connected to all things smart, put the AI algorithm to computer vision, natural language speech, these techniques, do some perceived or understood the decision function of automation tasks. But then we have to think about ' animism ', we want to make robots of new species has a spiritual, giving soul. This involves innovation in multimodal human-computer interaction technologies, does a spiritual product. "
There is no doubt that the "spiritual" is a "smart" broader concept, and Gu Jiawei causes more imagination in the former than the latter. Once the products directly to users, their strength is far greater than the industry explore Gu Jiawei know robot within a single product breakthrough is an unwise move and what product matrix that will be accepted by the public, and forms brand effect?
Obviously, this is the only product to respond to the problem.
