Smart appliances will be further integrated into people's lives
With the governmental guidance, mature technology, fast development of the Internet and the Internet of Things, participation of various brands on different levels and gradual acceptance by consumers, the output of smart appliances, which is expected to exceed one trillion yuan in 2020, will keep growing. On the other hand, the development of intelligence will also be expanded from technology to culture, which will become simpler and closer to people's consumption habits. We can reasonably believe that in the future, the development of Chinese smart appliances will consist of "two directions" - the Internet of Things will become mobile, and the mobile industry will also be influenced by the Internet of Things.The goal is to build a mutually connected, linked and understanding ecological system.
At the ceremony, the released list of "2017-2018 Global Smart Appliances Brands Top 10" includes the brands of Siemens, Samsung, Haier, Hitachi, Panasonic, Bosch, Philips, Sony, Whirlpool and LG. Among them, it's worth mentioning Haier - the only Chinese brand listed in "2017-2018 Global Smart Appliances Brands Top 10". Founded in 1984, Haier Group has transformed from refrigerator and air conditioner manufacturer to the manufacturer of complete smart appliances, and the transformation of Haier also represents the transformation from "Made in China" to "Created in China" and "Intelligent Manufacturing of China". In recent years, Haier has fully carried China's advantages in complete manufacturing ecology, promoted intelligent manufacturing from the ecological perspective and used it as the main direction for manufacturing transformation and upgrade. Haier previously has introduced the world's biggest industrial Internet platform with proprietary intellectual property rights - COSMOPlat. By December, 2017, it had gathered more than 300 million users and more than 3.8 million companies, and the platform scale exceeded 200 billion, which has realized cross-industry and cross-field services. COSMOPlat has deeply integrated advanced manufacturing industry with the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence, which has promoted the future development of smart appliances, as well as the transformation and upgrade of Chinese manufacturers toward the direction of intelligent manufacturing.
In 2017, the big data application solutions have been gradually embedded into various technologies, such as advanced analysis, content analysis and deep learning. Artificial intelligence (AI), which has been integrated into more electronic products through technologies like speech recognition, image recognition and expert system, was in the ascendant, and its market potential will present explosive growth. Furthermore, technologies such as the AI bionic eye, the news writing robot and automatic translation are entering and changing people's lives and work. 2018 will start an era with more "intelligent manufacturing" and "wisdom".
