Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun has announced that AI will play a major role in Xiaomi products this year. The info was revealed at a media conference earlier today.
When the year began, Lei Jun listed three major goals he hopes to achieve: one of which is to accelerate the implementation of a national strategy on artificial intelligence. During the conference today, he said the future of technology companies is in artificial intelligence and now that significant breakthroughs have been made, Xiaomi will release in the near future key products based on artificial intelligence.
He also revealed that the company already set up a laboratory to explore and develop AI products. In addition to that he foresees AI playing a major role in every day life in the next 3 to 5 years just like internet connectivity does now.
There is no info on what any of the products will be or what they will do but chances are we might see Xiaomi implement AI into some of its phones this year.
