Introduction: January 15-16, 2019, sponsored by Guangdong Robotics Association, Shenzhen Tongkou Heyuan Command, Heyuan High-tech Zone Management Committee, Yongyida Robot, Ruisong Intelligent Technology Co-hosted by Guangdong The Hong Kong and Macau Dawan District Intelligent Manufacturing Industry Summit and the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Guangdong Robotics Association were held in Heyuan.
January 15-16, 2019, sponsored by Guangdong Robot Association, Shenzhen Tongkou Heyuan Command, Heyuan High-tech Zone Management Committee, Yongyida Robot, Ruisong Intelligent Technology Co-sponsored The Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau Dawan District Intelligent Manufacturing Industry Summit and the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Guangdong Robotics Association were held in Heyuan. At the event, Yong Yida released a new Xiaoyong AI safety education robot, positioned as a private bodyguard for children.
With the theme of “Deepening Cooperation and Leap-forward Development”, this forum invited leaders of Heyuan Municipal Government, Li Peigen of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Professor Chen Xiaoping of the Chinese University of Science and Technology, Professor Hua Qing of South China Institute of Technology, and practitioners of many robotics industries. People talk about topics such as smart technology, industrial development, and robotics.
The development of service robots is promising
In the agricultural era, the advancement of production tools has increased production efficiency; the emergence of steam engines has promoted a profound revolution in energy; the Internet has improved knowledge in the age of information civilization. The efficiency of the whole society; today, human-computer intelligence in the intelligent civilization greatly enhances the value of the individual.
Li Peigen gave a speech on "AI and Machines - Several Trends and Cases" at the forum. He started from four aspects: human-computer intelligence, human-machine collaboration, integration of life and machine, and unmanned system. The discussion on the development trend of intelligent robots in the future.
Human-Machine Intelligence System: Human-machine integration, leveraging their strengths to make decisions and execute reasonable or optimal responses to changing environments or objects.
Li Peigen said that the advantage of human-computer intelligent systems lies in the hybrid intelligent mode, which combines the advantages of people and AI. It integrates human intelligence into artificial intelligence, and human intelligence feedback makes intelligent systems smarter. However, the problem is that the usual feedback information is only the behavior data of the collector and the spontaneous unprocessed data, and the internal state of the person's emotions and cognition cannot be recognized, and it is difficult to provide accurate personalized service at present.
"machineThe integration of people and people will be an important trend in the future development of robots. Li Peigen pointed out that contrary to the idea that most people think that this is a lower requirement for robots, this is actually more demanding for future robots. Understand "people's words and understand people's intentions. In addition, human-machine collaboration will become an important direction for robots in manufacturing applications. Augmented reality is one of the technologies that can be utilized. For example, in the manufacturing process, according to the holographic screen guidance, Standardized operations to avoid errors, improve efficiency, and shorten the training period for workers. Currently, GE has applied AR technology to manufacturing and manufacturing.
Another direction for human-machine collaboration is service robots. Song Xiaogang, executive director of the China Robotics Industry Alliance, pointed out in his speech that from a global perspective, service robots are still in the early stage of industrialization, and the overall technology and market are not mature. However, as technology advances and costs fall, market demand drives Next, service robots will have a faster growth rate, whether it is from sales or sales. In view of the future, the service robot industry will be larger than industrial robots.
Focus on education, starting from the segmentation field
Yongyida Chairman Wu Yongmou said in an interview with the media last year, Yongyi I hope to become a leader in the educational robot industry within three years. Of course, in this highly competitive market, this road is not destined to be too easy.
Just after attending the meeting from Heyuan, Wu Yongmou will continue From the factory with a prototype just returned to Shenzhen. Cost control, quality control, marketing propaganda for entrepreneurs everything needs to worry about.
Previously, the author went into Yongyida in Heyuan According to the staff, the factory covers an area of 100,000 square meters. The Heyuan factory is the main manufacturing base of Yongyida robot, and the outer molds of the robots are designed and produced by themselves.
Perhaps the festival is approaching In the factory of Nuo Da, there are probably hundreds of people busy in the workshops of assembly, stamping, painting, etc. The head of the workshop told the author that most of the workers far away from home have already bought tickets before the arrival of the spring tide. After all, I won’t be able to buy tickets later.” He said that after the workers will return to the factory one after another, new orders will increase.
The change in 2018 is more than that from 1998 to 2008. The changes in the decade will be large. Technological changes, businessIndustry model innovation, changes in industrial structure, paradigm shifts, demographic changes, trend turning, and the emergence of new competitors all impact the market.
Product Director Liu Wei told the author that in the past year, Yongyi reached the largest customer order volume of more than 40,000 units, and in the peak period, it could sell 20,000-000 robots in January.
It is understood that Yongyi has cooperated with China Mobile, Keda Xunfei and South Korea LG Group to develop more than ten educational service robots. Targeted groups of children and adolescents aged 3-18, the core functions of the product focus on educational support. The product launched this time is mainly focused on security education. In the way of game experience teaching, it adopts 500 security encyclopedias, 300 security tips, 100 security stories, and improves children's through six major security themes. Safety awareness.
Yong Yida previously hired Li Peigen as the honorary dean of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence. The improvement of this new product was probably influenced by Li Peigen. Li Peigen pointed out at the forum that the robots currently on the market for children are not very sticky, and children will soon lose interest. Enterprises should adopt a gradual and intelligent approach to create a robot that is slightly smarter than children according to the situation of children, in order to truly interact with children and become a "companion" that children really like.
According to reports, Yongyi is currently seeking a new round of financing.
