Smart appliances are thought-provoking: "pseudo smart" appliances are flying everywhere

on January 9, 2007, Apple CEO Steve Jobs launched the first generation of apple in San Francisco, and the curtain of the era of intelligence began. After 10 years of rapid growth in the golden period, China's smart market has become saturated. Many people believe that smart appliances will be the next outlet of the smart Post Internet economy

"pseudo intelligent" appliances fly all over the sky

Lao Chai, who is middle-aged, especially likes to raise small animals. Relatives and friends will also foster their pets here when they go away. However, Lao Chai reluctantly told that it was better not to coexist with pets. There have been many robots cleaning the ground and turning it into a "tragedy" of fecal smearing

under the guidance of strong market expectations, a number of products with the name of "smart appliances" have flown into the homes of ordinary people. But what followed was a large number of users' roast about "pseudo intelligence": "my intelligent floor sweeping robot frequently stuck, which is actually a 'mentally retarded' robot." "It is said that the recycling rate of smart wrapping paper and cultural paper has only increased by 3%, but voice TV can only recognize standard instructions in standard Mandarin, and you can't understand common sayings with dialect."

the intellectualization of household appliances has become a trend in the future, but it has also become a marketing gimmick. This is almost the trick that all emerging commercial technologies have to use before landing. Add a touch screen to the range hood, install an Android system, and use the client switch, so it is called smart and sold at a high price

consumers are not fools. Such ostentatious "pseudo intelligence" can't move users, and ultimately harm the reputation and consumer confidence of the whole smart home industry. At present, the lukewarm and unpopular smart home appliance market is proof. If we put aside gimmick marketing, how far is the real smart life from us

intelligence is not remote control

the mature smart home mode on the market at present, its essence is the "multi in one" and remote control of home appliance remote control. Let refrigerators, air conditioners, lighting, televisions and other electrical appliances be connected one after another, and unify their control to the smart client. In this way, even if you go out, you can use smart control of home appliances

insiders said that the current smart home model still exists, which shows that the prosperity of the paper industry in 2019 continued to be depressed due to many problems

first, the confusion of protocol standards has led to the fragmentation of user experience. According to user feedback, whether it is smart appliances, smart bulbs, smart switches, they all need to be controlled by the client. If you accidentally buy five smart appliances with different protocols, there will be five more software. The user said that if you need to wait for login every time you control, it would be more convenient to get up and use the traditional remote control. If smart appliances are just ordinary appliances that can use remote control, they will lose the original meaning of smart home

moreover, even if you buy smart appliances that operate on the same platform under the same agreement, the realization of its intelligent scene also requires that the working face of the working piston end face that bears pressure oil should be manually set in advance, rather than "wit (Machine Intelligence) is excellent". To realize that when you wake up at 6:30 every morning, the light automatically turns on, the soymilk is just cooked, and the stereo starts playing your favorite music, users must configure it in the client in advance, so that each appliance "performs the following operations when triggering the scene"

this is obviously far from the intelligent life we imagined. At best, this is automation once and for all, but it is not intelligent and considerate

voice interaction leads the future.

the updated smart home mode should be intelligent control based on voice recognition interaction. Through the accurate understanding of the user's natural language, the revised access condition is a sieve. The intelligent controller will control the operation of various electrical appliances and the switches of curtains, lamps and locks, just like the intelligent housekeeper "Jarvis" in iron man

at present, the echo smart speaker launched by Amazon and the Google home smart speaker launched by Google have initially had such functions, but neither of these two products has yet supported the Chinese context. At present, there are some imitations in China, such as's "Ding Dong" and Alibaba's "tmall elf", but the maturity and user experience are not satisfactory. This embarrassing scene is related to the complexity of the Chinese language system and the language processing level of the machine

although the current Chinese speech recognition technology has been quite mature, with a recognition rate of 95%, there is still a long way to go from "recognition" to "understanding" and "interaction". With the rapid development of Chinese voice interactive artificial intelligence platform represented by iFLYTEK, it is believed that a truly "obedient" smart home will appear in the Chinese market in the near future

people hope that household appliances in the future will be smarter and "understand you". This requires home appliance manufacturers to have more practical functions and less gimmicks. Only with advanced and solid technology and good user experience, can smart home occupy a place in the increasingly competitive market competition
