Bill Gates once said, “robots will repeat the path of the rise of personal computers. In the future, every family will have robots. This revolution is bound to completely change the way of life of this era, just like the personal computer. This statement is gradually confirmed. After robots occupy the industrial assembly line and battlefield, service robots also begin to enter our family life. All kinds of signs show that the first year of home service robots seems to be coming.
On November 29, the State Council issued the notice on printing and distributing the development plan of national strategic emerging industries during the 13th Five Year Plan period, which specifically mentioned artificial intelligence, pointed out that it was necessary to cultivate the industrial ecology of artificial intelligence, promote the application of artificial intelligence in key economic and social fields, and create an international leading technology system.
The notice pointed out that it is necessary to speed up the construction of artificial intelligence support system, promote the application of artificial intelligence technology in various fields, develop diversified, personalized and customized intelligent hardware and intelligent systems, and focus on promoting the R & D and industrial development of smart home, intelligent car, smart agriculture, intelligent security, smart health, intelligent robot, intelligent wearable device, etc.
According to relevant data, as of December, there were more than 9000 listed companies on the new third board, while only 12 service robot enterprises were listed. These 12 new third board service robot enterprises are distributed in six major fields: information service, smart home, medical treatment, national defense information, logistics system and education.
In the capital market, more and more industry leaders and listed companies are keen to capture the great prospect of service robot as an important application. With the rapid development of smart home, intelligent products represented by service robot gradually enter the people’s home, ushering in explosive growth.
It seems that the first year of home service robot is coming, but there are many problems in reality. In fact, more than 90% of the home service robots in the market share are sweeping robots, while other home service robots have not entered the market.
Different from the cold smart home, many home robots in the market mainly focus on intelligent features, which are embodied in people and interaction. They can complete the personalized needs of users through interactive ways such as voice reminder. However, the current intelligent degree is far from meeting the requirements of users.
With the innovation and development of technology, consumers’ cognition and demand for robots are gradually improved. The huge potential of home service robot industry is also favored by many enterprises. The state has drawn up the draft of the 13th five year plan for the development of the robot industry, which, together with the technology roadmap of the key areas of “made in China 2025”, will constitute the development blueprint of China’s robot industry, and further lift the veil of 100 billion output value in the 13th five year plan.
It is worth mentioning that the 2016 annual conference of high engineering robots, with the theme of “new intelligent order, new vision angle, and new grid bureau”, will be held from December 22 to 23 at the Royal Hotel of Venus, Shajing, Shenzhen (formerly Qilin Mountain View Hotel). Besides the industrial robot Forum, this annual conference also has two special sessions on service robots Altar.
On the morning of December 23, at the 360 naming session of the annual conference of high tech robots and the forum session of “artificial intelligence and product innovation”, the dialogue guests will focus on “whether the home service robot will repeat the” trap “of smart home How to solve the standardization and personalization of service robots The two topics will have a round table dialogue.
Among them, the round table dialogue was presided over by Professor Su Jianbo of Shanghai Jiaotong University. The guests included Deng Qiuwei, President of 360 smart home; Dr. Gao Xiang, assistant chairman of covos; Liang Dongxing, deputy general manager of Longchi Xinchuang; Yan Qifeng, CEO of Lubo technology; Peng Junhui, CEO of Diding robot; Zhang Meng, founder and CEO of Cambrian, and Zhang Kejun, general manager of Shanghai Lingzhi.
