Throughout the smart home industry in the past year, the two concepts of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are no strangers to the public, and major manufacturers have landed in the home industry as embedded technology and communication technology. And the collection of network technology, smart home through the system to combine various home and user's home life to enhance user comfort and security. In 2018, with the rapid development of artificial intelligence, smart homes are closely integrated with artificial intelligence, allowing users to enjoy a more humane home experience.

Detailed the development status of the domestic smart home industry. In 2012, the smart home industry entered a period of rapid development and was highly sought after by the public. However, in 2015, sales growth began to slow down; with the support of policies, 2016 The growth of market scale began to rise; in 2018, thanks to the empowerment of artificial intelligence, the smart home sector joined R&D technology, built platforms, production terminals and other smart homes to renew their lives.

The smart home industry is complex and involves many products. According to the current fields involved in various enterprises, it is roughly divided into six genres: the traditional home appliance enterprises represented by Haier and Midea, through the intelligentization of the original products. Sales; Internet companies represented by Alibaba and are involved in the smart home industry through self-produced intelligent hardware or cooperation with traditional home appliance companies; mobile hardware companies represented by Huawei and Xiaomi, through research and development of software, production hardware and building intelligence The home ecosystem enters the smart home industry; the security companies represented by Honeywell, Bosch and Panasonic are intelligent in their own security equipment and occupy the smart home security market; foreign smart home enterprises represented by Amazon Echo and Google Home, Enter the domestic market through voice recognition and artificial intelligence technology; and some providers that offer cloud platform services and small hardware.

At present, the scale of China's Internet of Things industry is developing rapidly, and the Internet of Things is in smart homes, smart communities and smart cities.The development of the city and other fields has become increasingly strong. In the face of such dividends, traditional home appliances and Internet companies have accelerated their deployment. Haier has established a U-home platform, Midea has established an M-Smart platform, Alibaba has established an artificial intelligence laboratory and released products such as smart speakers. The smart home market continues to scale in the next few years. The market is bright and the market is bright.

Although it is favored by the mainstream, there are many problems in the standardization, experience, concept and price of smart home.

Three major problems become smart homes blocking roads

As the first problem in the smart home industry, the lack of standardized and unified standards is a major obstacle in the process of industrial development, in the entire smart home industry, There is no uniform standard yet, which has led major companies to go their own way and develop their own systems. They are not compatible with the systems developed by other vendors. Currently, Google, Apple, and Microsoft have joined the Qualcomm-led AllSeen Alliance. Intel, Samsung, Dell and other companies formed the smart home equipment standard alliance OIC; China's domestic major power companies have set up their own ecological circle, siege the land.

In addition, the lack of humanized pseudo-intelligence makes artificial intelligence face awkward situations. Most of the current smart home products are realized through mobile phones, but some manufacturers use "smart" as the gimmick to impose the original simple operation. On the mobile phone, the mobile phone takes on more functions. However, in addition to the familiarity of young people with the operation of smart phones, other users can only be discouraged from complex “smart” operations, and there is a serious lack of humanized design.

The information security issue of smart homes cannot be ignored. In the process of IoT information transmission, personal information is easily stolen, and users may cause information leakage problems in the process of using smart home appliances. This also leads to various issues such as data regulation, industry standard formulation, and data security.

artificial intelligence to help smart home

After decades of development, smart home has been intelligently interacted with each other with the remote control of home appliances using the App and two intelligent interactions between multiple appliances. In the stage, these two stages are weak intelligence stages, and the mobile phone becomes the only operation port. In the smart home scene assisted by artificial intelligence, the third stage will evolve into an in-depth combination of home products and artificial intelligence, giving the home products humanization. Get rid of the control of the mobile phone, through self-studyLearning, active memory, and independent decision-making provide users with a comfortable life.

Enhance a new interactive experience. Voice communication has become the most popular human-computer interaction method with its affinity with people. Humans give instructions to the machine by voice, and the machine executes instructions through speech recognition. In recent years, speech recognition technology has made a major breakthrough, and the accuracy of speech recognition has reached over 97%.

Smart speakers have the functions of voice interaction, providing media content such as music and audio books, providing a variety of Internet services, and controlling the smart home. They are popular among the public and are therefore called the entrance to smart homes. . In order to seize the entrance of smart home, the Internet giants have stepped up their research to seize the market. In the past year, the "hundred box battle" has become the biggest embodiment of voice interaction. Ali's Tmall Elf, Xiaomi's little love classmate, Tencent Tencent listened to, Baidu's small smart speakers, etc., so that Internet companies have tried water smart home field.

Artificial intelligence will also provide a safer and more controllable application environment for the smart home industry. Traditional password input and protection methods no longer meet people's requirements for ease of operation and security. This has promoted the development of biometrics. Biometrics refers to the combination of high-tech technologies such as computers and biosensors. Physiological and behavioral characteristics to identify an individual. At present, face recognition, fingerprint recognition and iris recognition have been widely used. In order to achieve a higher level of safety, finger vein technology for obtaining finger vein images by infrared irradiation is also closely studied, which greatly caters to people's pursuit of smart life. These technologies also promote the popular smart door locks and smart access control. Traditional home appliances such as systems and smart home appliances are welcoming new vitality.
