This cures boring boring small toys has raised more than 2 million dollars


There are some people, always a mobile, a pen pencil in their hand, no pen in the hand foot.

Designer Matthew says, this is a disease, treatment!

So he raised up such a silly little thing, never thought the fire was, no, no, just brought him more than 2 million dollars!


Directly on the map, is such a small toy.

Plastic material,

Moschino iPhone 6 plus

Looks like a boxy dice.


But above all over the small and trivial,

Intensive small buttons, for example, iPhone Moschino

Various gears if you can touch,

Meaningless, for example, rocker,

Yes, if you're a person who can't stop,

So, Moschino iPhone 6 plus

This can make your hands always be busy.


At present, this toy is in the pre, has raised nearly $ 2.5 million!

Project homepage here, interested please go:


Of course, it's in the United States,

For you in China,

If your hand can't stop,

So, my advice to you is,

Or get a sister as well, like this,


Or, make yourself girl.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home

Lei feng's network (search for "Lei feng's network", public interest) by the writer Chen Xiaoliang, doctor of engineering, founder of sound technology. Lei feng's Web exclusive article, reproduced please contact the authorized.

Intelligent speaker need to chain polished, Kung-Fu decided to experience cannot be ignored in any detail. Most of the time we give the data and deep learning of high praise, but many researchers made a lazy, that the world has not, data will be able to understand, the exploration of the physical world, reflections on the philosophy of human, is the driving force for social progress.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

With the release of Google Home, intelligent speaker originator Amazon Echo once again become the focus, this product has become representative of a new era of intelligent hardware. Of course, Amazon Echo does not let people down, sales climbed not only the tens, and r is more than a thousand people, a few days ago and open job offerings for 400 people.

In General, successful model or products abroad, for up to a year or so, China will successfully copy and even quickly catching up. But Amazon Echo is an exception, since its released in 2014, foreign only Google has spent the past two years to launch competing products, Home, because of the TPS has just been specific sales we remains to be seen. But how? Spent two years in China also copied several products, but not copy Amazon Echo this product that can be widely accepted.

Lunatik iWatch Case

This problem of many domestic manufacturers cannot understand, why spend a lot of effort, but the products do not have access to the user's identity? Dismal sales of similar products in China, has left many domestic Internet giant still can't make up your mind for developing intelligent speaker products similar to the Amazon Echo. What the hell is this?

| Intelligent speaker need to chain polished, Kung-Fu decided to experience cannot be overlooked any details

Intelligent speaker, as intelligent speech Assistant family entrance, is far beyond the scope of speaker definitions, this is hardware? Software? Is the platform? It's hard to define, and intelligent speakers involved the entire ecological chain for voice interaction. If you do not use this product as a strategic product for research and development, it is estimated that make products to avoid for borderline. While many businesses think they invested a lot, but compared to Amazon for the Echo, it would be a little dwarfed. Amazon not only thousands of people into research and development, Echo can be advertising in the Super Bowl. This competition between the mobile phone and is very similar to domestic brand mobile phones also thinks well, but users get the hands, naturally there will be a measure of distinction. In fact, the competition between the companies is not put into 20% the 80%, and is put in 80% changed to 20%. Most of the time, is often the 20% determines the success or failure of the company. But, after all, is one of the few willing to put this 80%, especially for emerging market products, refined user experience not possible, pour enough effort, do not have access to the user's acceptance are reasonable.

In fact, Amazon birth of Echo is also not easy.

Take Amazon Echo Research and development tasks is Amazon 126, the company was founded in 2004, mainly responsible for Amazon's hardware product development tasks. Amazon 126 have also developed four products, Echo is in the Kindle and the Fire Phone and AR d research and development tasks, even its members mainly AR component of the project, launched by the end of 2010 when presumably no one will watch the speaker. Amazon Echo is not the original name, but Amazon Flash, even ahead of the 2014 delivery is the name. Echo is also lucky because Fire Phone failed, AR project is stopped, the Echo benefit directly, greatly enhanced research and development strength after a short internal adjustments, but even so, there is still a lot of controversy, which has just launched the Echo dare not openly sold and instead take the form of invitation to purchase water market.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

Amazon Echo Research and development for many years, for the pursuit of technology is also a kind of extreme, but this did not save the Echo was released in 2014 when the embarrassment, then experience a demo model, from algorithms to content, there are a lot of problems. Of course, with the expanding scale of users, as well as research and development continues to grow, Echo has also been greatly improved, its content aggregation and because of its open policy and rapid development, which also get $ 100 or more for later Echo repeated product sales champion laid the Foundation.

Amazon nature of Echo is a speaker, while Echo's sound quality is adequate but in the current HiFi speakers declined, Bluetooth speaker power era of sound quality for most consumers is not the first element. Using the simple, beautiful appearance is the main power of users to purchase wireless speakers. Echo design quite satisfactory, but Echo is a combination of acoustics and intelligent matching, smart is only extended property of Echo, and deliberately remove display highlights the Amazon for voice interaction of confidence and persistence. The strategic sense of home as well as a general lack of excessive copy focuses on the functional difference is hard enough to Echo Echo success, not to mention domestic product design and planning do not Echo refined.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

Fine here, really require commitment to experience.

To cite an example, voice awakened China likes to flaunt more than Alexa, however, this matter if indicators that matter, floating high false alarm rates in the country, somehow missed to wake up, it's annoying, suddenly a speaker to talk you a false problem occasional is fed up with this kind of thing. Process design, everybody has an aesthetic standard, it is difficult to judge why Echo and Home look comfortable, but at least better than the trash speaker shape better.

Grind a chain of ecological products, in addition to the need to consider all relevant details, and pooling their resources. Voice interaction, for example, foreign Giants continue to acquiring related companies and develop strengths, while domestic companies like his to form small teams manage everything, how can so how can disperse over foreign energy giants? Voice interaction nor, deep learning can be solved at all, this in itself need to acoustic and smart has a deep understanding and long-term accumulation can be finished.

| Presence and immediacy of voice interaction is a key factor, but there is less heat

Voice interaction without a doubt is the keyboard, the mouse and the mainstream interactive touch screen, but always from real into the millions of poor.

There are a number of factors, like vendors think voice interaction is not intelligent, that is indeed the case. World does not have any company can make speech interaction do not stupid, intelligent speech levels still keyword content recognition and context analysis, the so-called syntax and sense of academic community there is no clear idea. This requires long-term research breakthrough, not only limited to the current hot machine learning and data, concepts and models also have to consider the physical world, or at least to understand infant language learning process. From this idea, now truly intelligent AI distance short of voice interaction with 108,000 miles.

Most of the time we give the data and deep learning of high praise, but many researchers made a lazy, that the world has not, data will be able to understand, the exploration of the physical world, reflections on the philosophy of human, is the driving force for social progress.

This may be a common Amazon Echo faced the same predicament, even critics Echo speech synthesis is not good enough, because humans always want their words to be able to get a similar response. Cannot say that Amazon does not attach importance to this issue, in fact, Amazon stepped up another level, not the degree of natural speech synthesis, but a voice answered response. Speech synthesis is currently really hard to be as natural as human, but this is not too far away. Last month Google released WaveNet caused the vibrations of speech synthesis, it is a new idea. Prior to this, speech synthesis for a long time without any substantive progress, nothing more than argument and spliced in two ways. Google how these methods in the evaluation of speech synthesis WaveNet and Microsoft's speech recognition "milestone"? Do a comparative analysis, however, this is not a user focus of concern at the present stage.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

Turns out, Amazon Echo the betting choice is correct, the user is more concerned about interactive presence, come from analysis of indicators, one of the most important parameter is the response time of the machine, Echo started for 5 seconds, then down to 1.5 seconds, then within 1 second, note that this is the average response time, rather than domestic peak indicators.

Interactive presence is quite interesting, sometimes described as immersion development process: just look at this from the language dialog. We know that communication is the main way for human interaction, which is the exchange of information, the main way of learning, but because the language is too timely, documented functionality is so bad, along with gradually forming a Word. Due to the effectiveness of the language, a language often is done face to face. Of course, now that humans have a phone, but even after you have your phone, communication remains instantly. That is, the phone is actually the distance to expand human language, but does not change the language exchange rates property, so the development of telecommunications and the Internet is still essentially in the enjoyment of such dividends.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

Of course, telecommunications and Internet technology are hard to do language Exchange level often undermines this immediacy. Technology is often called a simplex or duplex single interlocutor's language was "mutually exclusive", not duplication of sound and interrupted. Apparently, man-machine speech interaction to Siri and Echo of, is the single mode. Simplex mode does not provide face-to-face sense of fun and feeling, part on the lack of "dialogue" experience. Duplex mode is changing that, actually, but now human still has many gaps, these are technical difficulties to overcome.

Since the presence of voice interaction is currently unable to achieve human-level, naturally, want to answer time machine again this index takes an average time, and must be stable and reliable. This is crucial, how can you and a long time to come up with a machine dialogue? Should not, this will bring you down, even if it is not human, perhaps involving dignity. Clearly, the current phase of artificial intelligence cannot pursue human wisdom, which has too many physical and philosophical problems are not solved, don't cross the arguing about what "Singularity Theory", threaten humans or the long process of the machine, before considering these, perhaps you should first think about how to solve each of the key issues in the product. iWatch bumpframe

| Cultural differences between East and West but also restricted the development of domestic intelligent speech interaction technology

Intelligent speakers understanding at home and abroad, maybe more differences, but when people attempt to use the core of intelligent speakers--voice of the East when Intelligent Assistant, there is also a question of culture blocked, this may be the result of cultural differences between East and West. Understand this before we make a distinction between speech and language, speech (Speech) is a language (Language) signal, speech is human speech organs produce, carries some meaning, and the language of mankind's wisdom. Generally speaking, voice is born, baby babbling babbling speech, and even their cries also represents a certain meaning, and language is needed to learn and constantly evolved. Man-machine speech interaction interaction is actually the language, even if speech recognition 100%, for there is no specific meaning for understanding language, language is always personality, scenes and emotions.

Language is a product of culture, left culture has no language at all. Language is a social culture that reflected not only a socio-cultural patterns and linguistic structures also reflected the people's concept of value. Obviously, the language used in different countries are very diverse, due to the different nationalities living environment, the resulting natural different culture and language. There is no doubt that because of cultural differences between East and West, its expression there is a huge difference. This difference also determines the speed similar to the Echo of such intelligent speech Assistant.

Oriental culture always implicit, and directly in the West are different, we always like to beat around the means of expression. "Yes" does not say "Yes", but said "no". "No," without saying "no", but said "Yes", this Oriental boys in love will break down every now and then. In fact, the Oriental philosophy of doing things is the most important thing "to his mouth remained part of the sentence". This bitter voice Intelligent Assistant, a lot of times when people of the East face of the Echo when this type of smart speaker, according to our experimental observations, is really still needs to consider to export.

This is beyond the scope of any technology, compared to Westerners, Asians using intelligent speech products are facing a greater degree of psychological disorders. Machines smart enough different with Westerners, easterners to face this type of product is more subtle and awkward. Coupled with the current field of voice interaction and immediacy does not good enough, more Orientals this psychological barrier is increased. Which leads East to use Echo when this type of intelligent speech product, it's hard to say more than ten different expressions in a row.

Why the intelligent speaker Nandi Amazon Echo and Google Home?

In fact, the second element of cultural differences between East and West also reflects the voice smart assistants in different position between East and West. Anime in the West, such as transformers, in fact, is typical of the man-machine speech interaction, such as iron man, Star Wars, and more natural speech interaction and robots. Contrary the second element of the Oriental culture, such as Saint Seiya and final fantasy, still greater emphasis on interaction between everyone and expression. From this point of view, East compared to the West, on the whole, lot worse in man-machine dialogue and education in artificial intelligence, nature, mass-Intelligent Assistant for voice recognition in the East than the West.

Domestic intelligence speakers or say voice smart Assistant is still in early stages of market education, there is a thorny path to get to a full, even knowing that there are pits, might also drop a lot of pioneers, but steps must be taken to, prospects will be better. Trip process probably took a lot of sacrifice, to develop a wave of technical personnel, marketing personnel, accumulate a large number of hardcore users. This strategy has gone one step ahead in foreign countries, also don't imagine overtaking, how can there be so many corners, other people are not stupid, and take solid steps to get down to.

Domestic Internet development is also through, BAT is not the earliest pioneers in the field, but inspired by the pioneers continued to develop and grow. Well expect this trip takes how long, after all, is not predicting football results, but I believe it will process faster than Internet and mobile Internet. Lunatik iWatch Case

Hyatt Nokia ClearBlack technology analysis

Under a sun screen is a very troublesome thing, often with his hand blocking the Sun's rays can see screen content. Cause under the Sun see the screen because of the content of the screen glare than light reflected from the screen light display light intensity, we can be hard to see the screen clearly. Facing the outside can't see screen problem, the simplest way is to increase the brightness of the screen. But relying solely on increasing the brightness of the screen to save power. Now screen is a large power consumption in mobile phone spare parts, if you increase the brightness of the screen, will only result in a shorter renewal time.

In order to solve this problem does not affect the battery life of the phone, Nokia uses a Hyatt ClearBlack display technology. At present, the technology has been used in the Lumia 920, Lumia 800 phone. Image on the left is using a Nokia ClearBlack, is not made to the right of the C6-01 prototype using this technology, we can see the picture on the left of the screen content can be seen, and the right of the cell phone screen is white, cannot see the contents.

Nokia said the technology can make screens in the Sun remained the same as indoor results, and this kind of technology and Polarized Sunglasses similar to the polarizer is the display layer is more complicated than sunglasses. On a sunny day, if you don't have a polarized light eyes looking directly at the water, under the influence of surface reflection you don't see anything below the surface, cell phone screen is the same way. How exactly this is a technology, let us take a look at it.

Nokia has on the official blog of this technology has been introduced, in the figure below, we can see three layers, three include linear polarization, one-fourth wave slow film (quarter-wave retardation film) and the reflector. When the light after the polarizer, the following situation can occur: Kenzo iPhone Case Kenzo iPhone cover

Arrive in linear polarization of light layer, this layer allows vertically polarized light. Then arrived in circular polarized light delay film. This layer can once again change the direction of the light, and right circularly polarized light. Reflections from the screen and then arrive at the screen, is rotated to the left. And then again after a slow film, becomes a horizontal polarization. Eventually arrived in linear polarization of light, due to the light at this point in a horizontal polarization, so the layers can completely block out the light.

So why won't stop when the display of the polarization of light? Because the light on the screen after only a half of the distance, so the light from the screen can arrive at people's eyes.

Google fascinating depth of dreams like the machines took hallucinogens

Lei feng's network (search for "Lei feng's network", public interest) by: this article is translated from the Google's by Pu technology engineer Artificial Brain Is Pumping Out of the Trippy-And Pricey-Art. Web exclusive article of Lei feng.

Google fascinating depth of dreams: like the machines took hallucinogens

On Friday night, in the San Francisco Mission District (Mission District) of a vintage movie art gallery, Google graphics expert Blaise Ag • era y Arcas to approximately 800 geek hipster published a wonderful speech.

Used to hang a film his speech when he stood on the wall next to the screen, projection equipment used in this piece displayed 500 years ago on the walls of Renaissance Germany a pair of double portrait of the painter Hans Holbein paintings. Paintings in the distortion of a human skull, according to Blaise's interpretation of Hans Holbin was unlikely to directly draw the odd human skull, but use mirrors or lenses to project images of the skull to the canvas, and then sketch out the contours of the skull. "He is using the most advanced technology at that time," Blaise said.

Through this example, Blaise mean we use science and technology to create art has a history of several centuries, at this point, and now we're not so different from past. Blaise Gallery through this way each introduce the exhibits created by artificial neural network, which consists of computer hardware and software combination of neural network and neural network similar to the human brain. Last year, Google researchers have developed a new kind of artificial neural network for artistic creation, this weekend, Google put the artificial intelligence system into a two-day exhibition which generates a picture for a commitment to the arts and technology and the nonprofit organization--the gray area Foundation for the Arts (the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts)-had raised $ 84,000. cover Moschino

Google fascinating depth of dreams: like the machines took hallucinogens

Night of the exhibition, is a particularly stylish but geeky Valley scene. "Look at it! This is Clay Bavor, Google's famous head of the virtual reality project! "。 "Look, there is a TechCrunch (a tech media) by Josh Constine. "" This is MG Siegler, writes for TechCrunch in the past, now often appear in artificial neural network art exhibitions, well, I think it was him. "At the same time that night and demonstrated a fast pace of development of artificial intelligence technology. Artificial intelligence has now reached a historic high, artificial neural networks can not only promote the progress of the Google search engine, but also produces people willing to pay big money to buy the works of art.

In the eyes of Blaise, from mankind's first since the artwork was created, these are merely an integral part in the process of history, just like Han Holbein's neural network just broadens the creative form of art. While in others, this is an exciting new things. "This is the first time I viewed the creation of works of art into a science project. "One gray area Foundation for the Arts patron Alexander Lloyd said he spent thousands of dollars on a pair of artificial neural network's works of art. Friday night's show at the same time has given us a positive hints, make us more inclined we will have a wonderful world of artificial intelligence, smarter machines will become more independent, they will engage in more work for us and led us to a new world beyond our imagination.

| Depth (learning) dream

Today, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Enterprise, and artificial neural networks have been widely used in automatic recognition of images, the smart phone's voice command recognition and intelligent translation between different languages. If you have entered enough pictures of your family to the machine, then the machine will learn to recognize your kin. This is Facebook the way you upload photo in identify face. Now, called "deep dream (DeepDream)", "generator", Google successfully subvert these neural networks. Is no longer recognized the picture of the machine, but to create the picture.

Google said the results called "Inceptionism", to the movie inception 2010 Leonardo (Inception), pay tribute to, the film depicts a can im going to put our ideas into the consciousness of the other technologies. Although this may not be the best analogy, but this new technology does is it shows us robot dreams.

In order to train "deep dream", "brain", we first need to enter a photo or other image, artificial neural networks will be looking for similar patterns in these pictures, constant repetition will strengthen this pattern. "This would create a feedback loop: If a cloud looks a little like a bird, artificial neural networks will make it look more like a bird," staff at Google in a blog post announcing the project, said for the first time. "This will, in turn, makes artificial neural network better able to identify birds in the next step, until a rich detail bird suddenly appear in front of you. " iPhone 6 Moschino

Output results in this way is very charming, but a bit disturbing. If you put your photos into artificial neural networks, if it found that somewhere there are some on your face like a dog, it will face this part of your dog. "This is like a neural network was hallucinating," said Steven Hansen, a Google DeepMind AI intern of London lab, "it looks like dogs everywhere! "Or, if you give an artificial neural network input random noise picture, it might generate a tree or a tower, or a whole consisting of Tower City. In the same amount of noise in the picture, it may find a pig and a snail's blurry images, then it will generate a frightening new creatures that combines both characteristics. Think about it, it's like a machine taking hallucinogens.

| Real art (Virtually Art)

For developers of Google engineer Alexander Mordvintsev, vision is initially developed this technology to better understand the behavior of neural networks. Although the artificial neural networks has to show its power, but in the way they behave, there are still some mysteries have been solved. We cannot fully understand this hardware and software combination of what happened to the neural network. Mordvintsev and other researchers were still working on research of artificial neural network in order to fully understand them. At the same time, another engineer at Google, Mike Tyka went to look for the ability to use this technology to create art. His research on artificial neural network for Google at the same time, was also a sculptor. He saw the technology as technology combined with the art of a way.

Artists with Tyka, responsible for selected image input to artificial neural networks, they can to adjust certain behaviors of artificial neural network to the appropriate mode. They can even start training them so that they recognize the new pattern, in order to release seemingly limitless possibilities. This technology generates some of the works look very similar, especially in a number of works about spiral, dogs and trees. But part of the work in their own adventures on the direction, showing a through inhospitable and cold machines picture.

On Friday night, Tykad artificial neural networks responsible for four pieces of art created by auction. Are the "drill Castle Air Museum (Castles in the Sky With Diamonds)", "devout faith of God's Army (Ground Still State of God's Original Brigade)," "the whim of the Carboniferous (Carboniferous Fantasy)", "Sparks, sun shining Babylon (Babylon of the Blue Sun)". Through the Gallery, the odd painting, a match the singular visual effect of paintings. Not surprisingly these unique paintings, according to the plan the exhibition host Joshua said, these names are these works of art of artificial neural networks of their choice. Ross Goodwin, one of the New York University graduate student used the same type of artificial neural network technology to generate names for Tyka work.

cover Moschino

In the view of Steven Hansen, these paintings that are automatically generated and cannot be regarded as a major leap forward. "I felt like an advanced version of PhotoShop," he said. But at least the DeepDream symbolizes the great changes in this area, the machine can already do a lot of things for myself. On the Google search engine, which changes all the more obvious. Machines did more work at the same time, means we humans play a role in search engine will become less, or at least we have decided on the right of the search results more and more far.

Moreover, this gap not only in the Google search engine, but spans many fields of the online services and technologies. On Friday, in a corner of the Gallery, Google official invite visitors to wear their paper VR equipment to explore "deep dream (DeepDream)" deep inside. Cardboard VR equipment to show people a realistic "simulated universes" a little. Moreover, the technology is undergoing rapid development period. So it is no exaggeration to predict that one day, machines will be able to create a much larger virtual world. Google VR Clay Bavor, head of the project and not just as a visitor appears in the exhibition, he was behind the weekend Exhibition sponsor and sponsor one of Joshua To work in Google VR.

As you can see, Hans Holbien using technology to accomplish their art, and this line of thinking will radically change some areas, causing profound changes.

Microsoft s Qi Lu ice doing the right things

Lei feng's network (search for "Lei feng's network" public attention): author of Qi Lu, Executive Vice President of Microsoft, written on Microsoft Microsoft released fourth-generation artificial intelligence after the small ice.

Microsoft's Qi Lu:

In the field of artificial intelligence, Microsoft is not a recruit. In the past 20 years, Microsoft continues to invest in the field of artificial intelligence, has accumulated a large number of patents and technologies. At present, has finally come to our accumulation of these research and development into products and services.

| In artificial intelligence: the third man and the world

Through the last two or three years Microsoft Small ice and Cortana's product development and operations, we have reason to believe, artificial intelligence will be the next 10 global technology and innovation of the Internet industry growth, and meaningful is that artificial intelligence will become the third man and the world, and become a new bridge to connect people with the world.

Jeremy Scott iPad Mini Case

--Dialogue is the basis of the revolution, that is able to make all kinds of knowledge, information and service on which you are running, and formed the basis of eco-environmental platform. But at this point, Microsoft may have done some things right.

Artificial intelligence has this "dialogue", are almost all researchers in related fields of dreams. Includes Microsoft, Google, Facebook, big companies such as IBM and Baidu, have invested heavily in this area. In Silicon Valley and in Beijing, there are at least hundreds of entrepreneurial team in building a similar service, and dialogue systems, trying to capture one or more users live and work.

Among them, we can see some industry where many different attempts, but inevitable given the "dialogues" of too many functions and meanings.

It reminds me of Microsoft's interesting exploration of the small icy body. Last November, the small ice platform officially arrived beauty. But today, there are still a large number of American users don't believe that ice is an artificially intelligent robot, little ice release video of each of us can get on average more than 1.2 million plays and 20,000 bullets. Since its release in 2014, little ice has more than 42 million users, cumulative amount of dialogue over 20 billion. This is a huge success. First heard ice teams reported to me that the figures, I and many colleagues in Redmond said I can't believe it. Even compared with a base of more than 700 million Internet users in China, which was a huge success.

| Microsoft ice does two things

First half of the year is also a United States media likened the small ice "biggest in the history of science and technology of the Turing test". This has caused me and many of my colleagues think. What has Microsoft done? With the deepening of globalization strategy of small ice, what have been the experiences can be replicated?

Through the discussions for several months with small ice team, we feel that the small ice does two things:

Affective computing framework: Microsoft has put forward two years ago of affective computing framework. First, we believe that the framework plays an essential role in the development of artificial intelligence, all products of artificial intelligence, not just ice, should be taken into account in addition to IQ, introducing the new dimension of EQ. Later, as the deepening, we find that "emotions can affect people's decision" about it, almost penetrates every aspect of our lives and works today. Whether you're shopping in a business App, and interact in a social networking platform, are no longer merely function, but rather to reflect temperature, reflects the EQ characteristics of this dimension of the powerful, the better performance of the platform. Therefore, we believe that there will be more and more product and technology research and development, as a basic framework of affective computing, as a basic dimension of EQ+IQ.

Common dialog system of artificial intelligence: a small ice set up a common dialog system can self-evolution of artificial intelligence. This system is like the era of the long tail of search engine user experience, no matter what problems the user throws, Kimi was able to answer and to carry on the conversation. Now, after three years of development, small ice has achieved the initial assumption of "just me". With small ice, many friends of business focus from the outset to conquer a niche, but over a period of time, they often find that, in the face of users a diverse range of needs and problems, what they lack is ice the common dialog system. This system is the Foundation of Microsoft's strategy of artificial intelligence, is a crucial step.

In fact, small ice even though there was a "little" words, but within Microsoft technology and product lines, such as Windows, 10 Office 365, Hololens, and little ice has a variety of Association and cooperation. We have accumulated over the past more than 20 years, in artificial intelligence, search engine and data aspects of technical reserves, are also on the small ice body. So why we attach such importance to this dialogue robot? Because Microsoft believes that "dialogue platform" whose time has come.

| The third era: dialogue platforms

In the history of information technology, the real sense of the times, there have been twice. Each is accompanied by an interactive revolution. The first time was when the rise of personal computers, graphical user interface the interface for user interaction. Agents represented by the Microsoft of that era. The second time, when the rise of the Internet, people began to connect with the world through a search engine and browser. Google became the second representative of the times.

Microsoft believes that today's development of the mobile Internet and cloud, was only the third time in its infancy, but this new era of transition. Real's third major era, was the age of artificial intelligence. And the core of its revolution, was "dialogue platform" is emerging. We call it Conversations as a Platform (CaaP). In fact, the dialogue at the core of this new era, after the master data, user connections, and technical conditions, more like a regression.

Why we define it as a regression? In fact, if you have the impression, as early as the PC popularization and the rise of search engines, they don't like this using a keyboard and mouse, and the machine dialogue, use keywords to search in the search box. First experience was directly talking to computers, search engines to complete the dialogue. Just because the technology does not have the conditions that make people have to learn to use a machine to understand input and use keywords to find what you need. Dialogue is the most natural form of interaction from start to finish, only that it does not have the condition.

Today, we finally have our dialog platform conditions.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg recently said that 5-10 years in the future, artificial intelligence than humans are better at doing some of the most basic tasks, such as special missions, voice recognition, image classification, as well as games. Seems he thinks artificial intelligence breakthroughs in some of the areas of expertise of the expert system. We believe that when AI is no longer seen as the quotation marks and bold emphasis on concepts, and becomes as light bulbs, washing machines, computers, phones, commonplace things in daily work and life, this marks the popularity of artificial intelligence.

Finally, for general artificial intelligence and the relationship between people, we also have done some thinking. Current CEO of Bill Gates and Satya had have special views, here, refers to Satya recent views, as a conclusion:

We will be using more technology, artificial intelligence to help people's work and life, including emotions.

Meanwhile, we have planned to organize more shared activities, make our technologies and products more transparent, it also facilitates members to more easily understand the operating principle of small ice. Jeremy Scott iPad Mini Case

We will further leverage our technology to make artificial intelligence in a more neutral position, will not be about data bias of the Internet.

We will also continue to develop the framework of affective computing.

VR line market segment, there is a demand

Earlier media reports, Frank, founder of Archiact has advised that it will set up distribution in China, in charge of business operations, can be seen at the initiation of the development line of thought. For the real reason, co-founder Derek tells Xiao bian, "the VR market lines than on larger, but focuses on the line. "They hope that by creating more boutique solution, including hardware, software, and development potential of offline operations and" market segment below the line. "

But to maintain offline experiences the business, need to keep the flow of people, this may be the current store problems, Derek thinks the flow of people is not high, "experience under the last line the owner pushes hardware, content not kept pace with the experience overall is not very good. Our flagship boutique this year in order to advance the line. "

While China's Huang Zhihua, head believes that online store there is a market demand. "Part of VR's online experience in the market, but it leads to strong feelings, will become mainstream. "

Field experience is the helmet and handle

Besides b-oriented programme provides offline, Archiact own gaming content, is also responsible for the issue, which has some games under their online content. But when it comes to offline with mobile VR game development is different, Derek said with a smile

"Is not the same. Because the offline experience time limit, within a few minutes will give the player good experience, after the players play at least, want to play second or refer a friend to play with. So within a short time, offline experience is cool, interactive, or more people. With mobile, single experience or developed for the three big games. If catch users within a few minutes, then you will loss the user. "

Game development or renewal period, they did not specify the time, but expressed the need for "balance, inputs and markets. " Cath Kidston galaxy note 4 cover

"Market players will never be comparable, because good games this year, and next year is not good. Players play a symbolic game, he will use this to measure all other games. "

In fact, learned that a team game to offline businesses, small series of reaction is: If previous games without profits?

"In the Gear on the VR payment OK, Goggle also Play downloaded games on a large, but not for Android users pay to download, and the pay system did not, there would be no open payment scheme. "

Derek looked helpless.

At present, the Archiact team has more than 60 people in Vancouver, responsible for research and development, the Chinese team has more than 20 people, is responsible for the operation. In addition to the VR game development on the mobile side, they are also developing other games for three big content.
